At Naturaki, we know that many of the clients who visit our houses come with their children. That is why today we dedicate you this post, since we are aware that when travelling with children, planning a little is indispensable for the succes of the getaway. Near Girona and the Costa Brava you will find plans for all tastes, from visits to farms, adventure parks, sports, walks, culture … Because not only your children will enjoy it, we are sure that you will too! To be a kid again for a while with them is priceless!

1. Astronomical observatory of Albanyà

Have you ever been embroidered watching the stars? At the Albanyà Astronomical Observatory, near our Can Martinot house, you will find the largest automated telescope in the province of Girona. They make astronomical baptisms, in order to bring the world of astronomy closer to groups of children and adults. To see the stars closer than ever! If it is a clear  sky night, it will be an unforgettable experience.

2. Visit the Fageda Farm


It is worth a visit to this farm next to Olot, where you will see the cows in production, the pre-birth room, the calves and the milking parlor. Once in the factory, from the outside you will see how milk is transformed into yogurts and desserts, as well as the different processes of elaboration and fermentation. And finally they will also show you how they produce jams in their factory. You can also play being small farmers by helping out. You can take a look at our houses in la Garrotxa at the following link.

3. Butterfly park in Empuriabrava


In the middle of the Alt Empordà there is a paradise of butterflies, parrots and other exotic animals. It is a unique park in Catalonia where young and old you can observe animals in the middle of nature in full activity and learn about vital cycles. You can feed the birds, you will go through cows of bats, you will see butterflies of unimaginable colors and you can take some amazing pictures. Very close to our houses Ca la Maria del Marquès and Mas Garballer.

4. The prehistoric caves of Serinyà


Visiting these prehistoric caves next to Banyoles, you can get close to the scene where the hunting collectors of this time lived. It is the best site in Western Europe to know the evolution of Neanderthal man to modern man. An ideal visit for the restless little ones to find out where we came from and how we lived. We recommend you to take the guided tour. Nearby Mas Miquel and Can Abella houses.

5. Adventure Park of Sant Feliu de Guíxols


Circuit on the trees, canyoning, railways, paintball, hiking, orientation … In this park you will enjoy regardless of your age, as they offer fun and exciting circuits installed in the trees to be able to move from tree to tree without touching the ground, making Tibetan bridges, climbing stairs, going downhill, making Tarzan jumps, networks, tunnels, slides and many other adventures. Ideal to enjoy with family. If you want to stay in the Baix Empordà area, you can look at our houses in the area at this link.

6. Boat trip on the lake of Banyoles


We love Banyoles, that is why we have spoken in different posts. What better, however, than changing perspective and this time taking a ride around the lake by boat! Navigating with Tirona (the boat) will see the lake from a privileged point of view and you will be able to observe the wild and idyllic places of this site. From the 21 fisheries that surround the eastern part of the lake, the various mountains in the north and the extensive flora and fauna. If you have strong arms, you also have the option of renting a wooden boat in oars. In this link you can see the houses we have in the Pla de l’Estany area.

7. Mona Foundation in Riudellots de la Selva


The MONA Foundation and its rehabilitation center give a second chance to chimpanzees and macacos rescued from circuses, TV sets, advertising, etc. and offer them a second life in their habitat among other primates. With a visit to the foundation, you can see the work they do and be aware of the problems these species are facing (extinction, illegal traffic, abuse in the name of the entertainment industry …). Fortunately, all these problems can be solved by raising awareness about the need to protect nature and our closest evolutionary relatives. Very close to our houses Mas Anés and Casa Nova de Ferrando.

8. Ter river Kayak route


Along the Ter River on the stretch that runs the area between Colomers and Verges, there are two types of boats: Kayaks and Canadian Canoes (2 adults and 2 children can fit in). This first section we propose (approximately 2 hours) is an easy and very fun section to make a family, with lots of vegetation on both banks of the river. You can easily see birds, water turtles or mammals, always depending on the season. A van picks you up to the destination and takes you back to Colomers. About 10 minutes from our houses Can Tona and Can Forgàs.

9. Karting in l’Escala

If you need to bring out adrenaline, Karting l’Escala makes it easy for you. Along its 750m tracks you will feel like Formula 1 riders and when you finish the race you can even go up to the podium to celebrate the race. For the smaller ones it is necessary to know that they also have two place Karts, in order to be able to accompany them. Helmet and speed up! Only 5 minutes away from our Albons Resort houses.

10. A tour with the Girona City Tour train


The authentic Tourist train of the city of Girona with audio guide in 9 languages and panoramic roof. A tour around the old town of Girona with the best views of this magnificent city, going through the Cathedral, Sant Domènec, the Walls, Plaça Catalunya … The main stop is at Pont de Pedra and offers daily service throughout the year. An original way to get to know the city without getting tired of it! Well near one of our most top house in the Vall de Sant Daniel: Can Ferriol.

Proposals to re-enjoy life with the eyes of a child, to disconnect from the routine and stroll through these places of Girona and the Costa Brava, where you can feel like children again!
