Enjoy a magnificent Pyrenees Mountains Day Tour from Barcelona. This day tour journeys through the impressive Pyrenees Mountains near Barcelona with views of majestic peaks rising to heights of 2600 metres (8500 feet) with stops at picturesque spots on our drive up high mountain passes and along secluded valleys.

This tour starts with a personal pick-up at your hotel or apartment in Barcelona and drives north-west to the Pyrenees Mountains. After a short coffee break by a mountain water reservoir the tour crosses a mountain pass and lovely valleys to arrive at the spectacular twin-peaks of the famous Pedraforca mountain.

Then you journey to the mountain village of Gosol nestled in the Pyrenees in the footssteps of famous painter Picasso, who arrived by mule 100 years ago and spent a summer capturing the picturesque village and splendid mountain landscapes on canvas.

In Gosol we visit the ruins of the 13th century castle and medieval village, the Picasso centre and enjoy lunch in the village square.



After Gosol we head deeper into the Pyrenees mountains to explore coal mining villages with abandoned coal mines. In this area we have the opportunity to see tracks of unique dinosaur footprints fossilised on a cliff face that was discovered by open surface coal mining in recent years. The dinosaur footprints are huge and over 65 million years old.

Don't miss this chance to experience a scenic, memorable and unique day in the Pyrenees mountains.
