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 many cultural-historical highlights in addition to wonderful scenery with sun and sea! 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 moustache, among others.
We hiked the GR 92 in September 2016 in beautiful late summer weather and present our hiking route on this page (see GPX file downloads), our experiences and as much practical information as possible 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 the Mediterranean coast on beautiful paths, including short detours into the Catalan hinterland. Almost every day we pass beautiful bays that invite us to take a short dip in the sea. As a contrast to the meditative hiking during the day, in the evening we have the full range of tourist infrastructure in the coastal towns at our disposal: sometimes picturesque and exclusive like in Begur or Cadaqués, sometimes metropolitan like in Palamós.
If you don't want to hike for ten days at a stretch, you should simply choose a shorter section. In any case, we recommend starting in the very north in Portbou and advancing from there to the south of the Costa Brava via the beautiful Cap de Creus. see also our assessment of the scenic highlights at a glance.
From now on, it is even possible to individually book luggage transport on the Costa Brava. You can find details here.
