Just select the duration of the trip, the number of people in your group, the date and time of departure.
You will receive a confirmation email with the details and meeting point (Port Olimpic harbour in Barcelona ).
After meeting at the harbour, you and your group will chat with the skipper to decide which route to take.
The boat cruise is super flexible.
Let them know what you would like to see, and to do.
The skipper considers the weather, wind, and sea conditions to choose one of several sailing courses. You then board your beautiful sailboat and sail out into the sparkling open sea.
With the option to play your own music on the boat speakers, along with the many drinks and appetizers on board, you will have everything you could want as you enjoy the Spanish sunshine and, if the weather permits, the cooling waves of the sea.
Escape the crowds on this adventure on board a beautiful sailboat, which can be modified to suit your exact needs.
This is suitable for any type of tour including party, business, family, romantic, fishing, or navigation training.
What is included?
Boat rental, Skipper, and Fuel
One drink per person – cava, beer or a soft drink
Additional drinks (you can purchase on board more)
Afterwards I like to go for Tapas in one of the many places in El Born.
A scooter is the best and a Vespa most stylish way to get around the city. You can relax at the beach, drive your way to Sagrada Familia and Park Güell – all that in no time! (More info on Park Güell here)
You can rent the scooters in Barcelona per hour or per day. This is perfect for cool couples, hipster and friends!
It is a perfect way to get more hints and tips on the city by the guides Edu, Mari and Milos.
The tour is by bike so you obviously need to know to handle a bike.
It is not super physically challenging, more easy-going riding.
Traveling on a shoe-string budget?
There is a small budget bike tours for backpackers for instance, that take you all the way to Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila, Exiample district, Parc de la Ciutadella – for 22€ only. This one is a more classic sightseeing tour only.
6. Paella Cooking Classes (+ 5% discount)
How about food?
Barcelona is a serious foodie-paradise, perfect for some cooking classes.
No wonder we recommend joining an awesome cooking class!
The best way to do it is joining a combo of visiting a market and cooking class.
It is the best way to impress your friends at home with a delicious Paella or Tapas.
Here is a handpicked recommendation.
We highly recommend BCN Kitchen as their courses are fun and well-made.
It’s really worth it the money.
You visit a local market and learn to cook Paella like a boss!
Here’s what you’ll learn to cook:
Seafood Paella, the authentic taste of Spain (vegetarian options available!)
Crema Catalana (delicious desert)
Pa amb tomàquet (simple but delicious Catalan way of eating bread)
Prices start from 68€. We got a lovely 5% discount here as well!
You could also rent a car and visit the Costa Brava on your own.
10. Learn Photography (with a pro photographer!)
Have you ever been disappointed with your travel photos?
Are there features on your camera, or your camera phone, that you have no idea how to use!?
Do you want to come home from Barcelona with sensational shots of its city streets, beaches, graffiti and stunning medieval and modern architecture?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, then don’t hesitate to sign up for a photo tour with Shutter Kings Barcelona.
In the company of one of their international, professional photographers, you’ll explore some of the most scenic places in the city, as your guide explains everything you need to know about the art of photography, whether you’re a beginner or experienced shutterbug.
You’ll be amazed at how much you can improve your photos, in just 3 or 4 hours, thanks to their expert advice.
The tips you learn will stay with you, not just on your Barcelona trip, but for all your future travels.
In other words, this is a great investment of your time.
See the spectacular sights of Barcelona from the air!
You can charter a private helicopter ride in Barcelona starting from 79€.
During this 6 minute flight you will explore thousands of details, which you could never see from the ground:
World Trade Center,
Statue of Columbus,
antique quarter of fishers in Barceloneta,
whole coastline till the Puerto Olimpico,
beach of Marbella and the Forum of the cultures.
Is it worth it? Yes, it really is!
Flying a helicopter along the Mediterranean coast for 79€ only is a bargain and one of the unusual things to do in Barcelona. We know, 6 Minutes sounds like it’s a short time, but actually it’s all you need for a good experience.
For me personally, a scooter is the best option for Barcelona.
However, you can also cruise around in the tiny, fun GoCars.
It feels like racing as Mario Kart through the city. I tried them once – SUPER FUN!
Besides the feeling of Mario Kart, you also have an electronic tour guide with you. You will be lead through the city + get some info on buildings. The GoCar team proposes different kinds of tours and the most popular are the 3 tours of 3 hours, which is 45€ per person.
Earlier we mentioned the cooking class. Of course you can also just eat out!
Eating tapas is synonymous with a visit to Barcelona, and a Tapas & Beers food tour will take you to some of the most authentic tapas bars in the hip district of Gracia, to try classic Spanish and Catalan dishes like razor clams, patatas bravas and Iberian ham.
If you are crazy about cerveza they also have a dedicated craft beer tour, where you get to try some of the latest regional beers with a master brewer.
Seriously, the hostels we cover here are true design treasures. At Hostelz.com you can compare all prices for the hostels in Barcelona. It makes it a convenient way actually to find best rates. Have a look on what hostels you can expect:
An apartment is the best option for families. Here we recommend the BAI81 Apartments.
Located in Eixample, you are in walking distance to main modernist Gaudí attractions like Sagrada Familia and Casa Batllo.
Their kitchen is well equipped and it’s a safe area The apartments are always clean. If my friends cannot stay with me, this is where I send them when visiting.
