Situated 40 km Northwest of Barcelona, Montserrat is one of Spain’s most impressive natural sites. This multi-peaked rugged mountain over the valley of the river Llobregat is home to a historic Benedictine Monastery and a Basilica, whose shrine to the Black Madonna attracts many pilgrims. The Basilica is also famous for its boys choir which performs here daily at 13:00. The views and unusual rock formations of the region are breathtaking. (Combine with Cava wine production)
Leaving from the historic town of Tossa de Mar, your group can view life under the sea with an excursion along the coast in a glass-bottomed boat. Choose from a trip in the Fondo de Cristal, for the chance to explore the atmospheric caves. Or opt for Magic Vision, to concentrate on the submarine wonders of the Mediterranean.
A trip to Waterworld at Lloret de Mar, is a great way for students to let off steam. Those seeking an adrenaline rush can ride the rapids in rubber dinghies or shoot down the flumes, while those looking to relax can unwind in the food courts or by the pools.
This ancient town has all the charm of a large city but without the crowds. The old town is on the east bank of the river, with pedestrianized narrow streets surrounded by the old city walls, which you can walk along. There is an attractive Jewish quarter to explore, a magnificent gothic cathedral, Arab baths and an archaeological museum as well as great shopping. Photo © Miquel Caimary.
If you come to the Costa Brava, a trip to Barcelona city is a must. You can visit Antoni Gaudi’s still unfinished masterpiece the church of the Sagrada Familia, browse the the Bouqeria market, wander the lively Ramblas – or ascend Montjuic and see the National Art Museum. Football fans, on the other hand, might want to visit the Nou Camp, home to FC Barcelona.
Medaqua is an ideal hub for water sports and activities, with experienced and motivated staff on hand to ensure your groups safety and enjoyment. Groups stay in accommodation close to the centre. Water sports and activities available include snorkelling, sea kayaking, sailing, boat trips, cycling and diving.
Medaqua activities don’t end where the sea does. A guided bike tour will take you along the beach, through the nature reserves of the coastal marshes, along river banks, through the countryside and even into the mountains. There are many bike routes to choose from, some easy, some a bit more challenging.
On this boat trip from L’Estartit harbour to a ‘hidden’ cove in the Montgrí cliffs, you’ll visit Pedrosa Island and – sea conditions permitting – navigate through a hole in the rocks called Roca Foradada, before finally hopping off at a small cove at the foot of the Montgrí. You can then take a 90-minute walk back to L’Estartit.
Sailing has never been so easy. On the new 9m Fillao, you can relax, enjoy sailing with your friends, and explore the magic of wind energy movement.
Explore otherwise inaccessible corners of the shoreline by sea kayak, which combines elements of sport, sea and adventure. Ultra-stable two-person kayaks are used for beginners, and trips are guided by ‘Medaqua monitors’ with radio and telephone back-up. The usual itinerary is around the Medes Islands, with an optional stop for bathing and/or visiting Meda Gran Island.
After 10 years as a protected zone, the seas around the Medes Islands are like an aquarium. Saddle bream, peacock wrasse, damselfish and grouper are just a few among the many exotic fish you can observe on our snorkelling trips. Wetsuits are provided, and ‘Medaqua monitors’ – one for each group of eight – will guide you around the most interesting places.
