Ten-day coastal hike on the Costa Brava on the GR 92
The GR 92 is a sunny Mediterranean coastal hiking trail along the Costa Brava (Spanish for "wild coast") and offers not only a wonderful landscape with sun and sea but also many cultural and historical highlights! On the ten-day long-distance hike you will encounter a lot of nature but also listed, medieval villages and walk in the footsteps of Salvador Dalí, the eccentric artist with the twirled mustache.
We hiked the GR 92 in September 2016 in beautiful late summer weather and put our hiking route on this page (see GPX file downloads), our experiences and as much practical information as possible are available as an online hiking guide.

On the "Camí de Ronda" from the French border towards Barcelona
The GR 92 on the Costa Brava is largely congruent with the Catalan "Camí de Ronda" and starts in Portbou on the French-Spanish border. In ten daily stages, the GR 92 leads us along beautiful paths along the Mediterranean coast, including a short detour to the Catalan hinterland. Almost every day we pass beautiful bays that invite you to take a short dip in the sea. In contrast to the meditative hiking during the day, the full range of tourist infrastructure in the coastal towns is available to us in the evening: sometimes picturesque and exclusive like in Begur or Cadaqués, sometimes urban like in Palamós.
If you don't want to hike ten days in a row, you should simply choose a shorter section. We recommend starting in the very north in Portbou and from there over the beautiful Cap de Creus to the south of the Costa Brava - see also our overview of the scenic highlights at a glance.
