From Barcelona: Dalí-Themed Cadaqués & Costa Brava Day Trip

1. From Barcelona: Dalí-Themed Cadaqués & Costa Brava Day Trip

This full-day tour from Barcelona follows in the tracks of the surrealist genius Salvador Dalí, exploring the landscape that inspired his art. You’ll visit his favorite haunts and secret hideaways, as well as the legendary Dali Museum at Figueres and his former home near Cadaqués. Go from Barcelona to Figueres, where you’ll visit Dalí’s birthplace and the extraordinary museum dedicated to his work. Dalí wanted visitors to see his massive collection as a “whole,” so there are no catalogues and the work is not displayed in any organized manner. The tour continues to the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués, famous for its whitewashed Mediterranean houses and narrow streets. With its charming bay, it is one of the most picturesque villages on the Costa Brava. What is particularly stunning is the dramatic scenery on the drive there. For lunch, you can enjoy local seafood specialties at one of the numerous terraces, or grab a sandwich and relax on the beach. You’ll soon understand why Cadaqués inspired Dalí and so many other artists. Travel up the coast to the smaller village of Port Lligat, where Dalí sought the peace and quiet that truly inspired him.  The winter schedule (September 1 to June 30) starts with a drive to Figueres, where you will spend the morning exploring the Dalí Museum.  From the museum, drive to Cadaqués. After lunch at your own expense, continue exploring Cadaqués or head to Port Lligat, to visit Dali's House. The summer schedule (July 1 to August 31) leaves Figueres for Pubol Castle, once the home of Dalí and his wife Gala, located in the village of the same name. Visit the Gala Dalí House-Museum in the castle, and after lunch, venture to one of the many beautiful beachside towns that dot the Costa Brava coastline.

2. From Roses: Catamaran Cruise to Cap de Creus

Enjoy an unforgettable sailing experience on board the catamaran "Magic". Sliding gently over the blue waters of Costa Brava, you’re sure to love this quiet and relaxing day on the water.   Departing from the dock of the Ginjolers in the center of Roses, sail along the beautiful coast with its solitary coves lined with pine trees and abrupt cliffs until Cap de Creus. There, pass by the famous Cadaqués as well as Port Lligat, where Antoni Gaudi’s house is found, and enjoy the spectacular rocky coastline of this bay. In either Cala Bona or Cala Culip, the catamaran will anchor so you can take a pleasant swim in the crystal clear waters. Discover the seabed with free snorkeling equipment on board, or sunbathe in the wide bow nets while the crew serves a delicious barbeque prepared on board. After a full and relaxing day in the sun, your crew will lift anchor and take you back to Roses.

Fantastic tour! Highly recommend if a fan of Salvador Dali and beautiful seaside rocky-cliff locations. Easy meeting/starting point and check-in process in central Barcleona. The informative info provided about Dali's life and Surrealism on the drive up was truly interesting. The Dali Theatre Museum was spectacular. Lunch/free time (on our own) in Cadaques and touring of Dali's home was gorgeous! Our tour guide Cam, was super friendly, knowledgeable and patient. Highly recommend this tour! A great option from Barcelona without have to navigating getting there. - Tour was on October 23rd.

We have been to Cali museum in St Petersburg and digital immersions. This is more; not just a series of works; the entire construction is somehow calculated to nudge you into Daliland. Cadaque is fabulous as well. Sergio is an excellent guide. He achieves a nice balance between providing detailed biographical background and symbolism, while encouraging clients to enjoy it all as they will. He took the time while we were wandering the house connected to answer some obscure questions I had about the bedroom furniture.

Enrico was an excellent guide. Before we arrived at the museum, we had a good overview of Dali and his work, including the art of surrealism. lots of time to wander the museum and form our own views. A highlight of the trip was sunset at the Cap de Creus. fantastic.

The Dali museum is a must see! Our guide Cam was excellent! Extremely knowledgeable! He gave us the complete history on the drive there which was great to make the long drive pass by quickly.

Our tour was one of the best we had on our trip to Barcelona. Our guide was excellent! The museum & Salvador home are a must see.
