Catalonia Vacation Packages

Enjoy the seaside charms, cultural sites, lively cities and natural splendor of a fascinating region that sits in Spain's northeast corner.

Catalonia is a vibrant and passionate region of Spain with a proud culture and history. Its landscape ranges from the tall peaks of the Pyrenees to the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Throughout the province you’ll discover medieval and modernist architecture and the fantastic creations of Salvador Dalí.

Many visitors to Catalonia make Barcelona their first port of call. The second-largest city in Spain, and the capital of Catalonia, Barcelona sits between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains of the Serra de Collserola.

Take a walk along Barcelona’s Las Ramblas, a tree-lined boulevard popular with locals and visitors, to get a feel for the city. The bustling street connects with the Plaça de Catalunya, a large plaza in the center of the city. Explore the city's architecture, including the old buildings of the Gothic Quarter and Antoni Gaudi’s modernist masterpieces, such as his unfinished Sagrada Familia (Church of the Holy Family). Go shopping on the Passeig de Gràcia and at La Boqueria Market before heading to the edge of town to relax on one of the city’s beaches.

For more beach fun, head down the coast to the Costa Brava. This long stretch of coastline has miles of sandy expanses that include horseshoe bays, secluded coves and popular resort towns like Pineda and Tossa de Mar. Swim, sunbathe, scuba dive and windsurf in the warm Mediterranean water before retreating to a traditional restaurant to dine with views of the water.

The Costa Brava is where you will find plenty of art, history and outdoor adventures. Visit the village of Cadaqués to see the former home of Salvador Dalí, now a fascinating museum. Tour the old Roman Ruins of Empuries and the remains of the medieval castle at Begur or hike in the Cap de Creus Natural Park. During the winter, skiers flock to Girona Pyrenees for excellent snow conditions.

Reach Catalonia by flying into the international airports at either Barcelona or Girona. If you want to explore, renting a car is the most convenient way to see the region's coastline, countryside, towns and cities, although it is possible to travel across the province by bus and rail.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Catalonia?

A: Like most happening cities, Barcelona and Tarragona can be explored using public transportation or ride-share services. But if you're hoping to head off and discover the region of Vallès Occidental or farther afield, you'll appreciate the flexibility and freedom that comes with having your very own set of wheels. For all your motoring requirements, check out our guide to Cheap Car Hire in Catalonia.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Catalonia?

  • Barcelona (BCN-Barcelona Intl.): 9,697 international flights per month.
  • Gerona (GRO-Costa Brava): 268 international flights per month.
  • Reus (REU): 174 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Catalonia?

A: Many travellers opt to spend their getaways in apartments. Some love the comfort and amenities of hotels or villas, while others choose to book private holiday homes. Whatever you're searching for, Catalonia has a hotel that's right for you.

Q: What does a Catalonia holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: You can start by selecting your car, flight and hotel. Lock in as little or as much as you like. Next comes the more exciting stuff — booking fun activities and unforgettable adventures. With tons of options to choose from, arranging your upcoming getaway in Catalonia will be easy.

Q: What are the best things to do in Catalonia?

A: If you're staying in Barcelona, there are plenty of things to choose from. Gava Beach, Badalona Beach and Masnou Beach are some that are worth putting on your travel itinerary.

If Tarragona is your next stop, you'll also want to stop by Cala de la Mora, Tarragona Historical Archive and Cala Fonda.

Lastly, if Lleida is your only stop, be sure to pay a visit to Cova Gran de Santa Linya, Via ferrada Teletubbies and Jaciment de la Roca dels Bous.
