The natural diversity and comfortable climate almost all year round, makes Empordà the perfect location for sports lovers. The region offers a wide range of sports activities to make you feel like a rejuvenated brand-new person. Get all the insights of the sports facilities that celebrate the region’s natural beauty, providing you the ultimate travel and workout experience.

Golf

The perfect Spanish weather allows you to play Golf all year round. Some of the best international golf facilities are located in the beautiful natural landscapes of the Costa Brava. For the best golf courses we recommend that you take a look at Empordà, Serres de Pals, Girona, Costa Brava, PGA Catalunya, Mas Nou d’Aro and Torremirona.

Water Sports

The Costa Brava is known as one of the most impressive coasts of Spain. Therefore it is no surprise that there is a wide variety of water sports available at most beaches and nautical clubs. Activities such as waterskiing and windsurfing are popular due to the strong wind currents at the Baix Empordà cost. We recommend to dive and snorkel at the Parque Natural de les Illes Medes, known for its natural beauty and fantastic underwater life, at just a 30 minute drive from the Castell d’Empordà.

Hiking

Hiking is largely practiced in Empordà due to the breath-taking and mountainous shapes of the region’s natural landscape. The “Red de Senderismo” is a hiking network maintained by local authorities and combines nature, sports and culture. With a total of 370 kilometers, the hiking paths allow you to experience a variety of tracks, winding through forests and charming little towns. All tracks are perfectly signposted, and for daredevils there is the opportunity to discover some of the more remote places.

Cycling

There is enough adventure for cyclists too. Empordà has paths without motorized traffic and offers interesting information about the area and its history along the way. We recommend following the routes that wind down to the beaches of Valle de Aro & Palafrugell. And if you are a real adrenaline lover, make sure to practice your technique on the 19 different mountain cycling routes of 326 kilometers in total.
