A fun and fascinating way, where children and adults can enjoy the experience of seeing the seabed in all its splendour, observing, learning and above all respecting this magical and unknown environment at the same time. We encourage you to change your fishing habits and instead of fishing fish, follow our fishing methods: cans, plastic bags, shoes and a lot of objects that damage the whole coastline and the sea in general... In this way you will contribute to keep clean the fascinating submarine world that we like to visit.
Swim into river pools and discover its incredible environment with the little ones
Complement your country weekend with an excursion to one of the river pools that you can find throughout Girona region. you can access easily to most of them, so you can enjoy this natural pools with the whole family. River pools can be visited during summer time, so you can swim on it, but it is also a good idea to walk to them during other seasons of the year, since the weather is not that hot and the walk is easier to do. A good experience is to have a picnic when you arrive at the destination. Remember to respect the environment and not leave any rubbish!

Many of them, apart from traditional wine tasting, have opted for family wine tourism, where they offer activities for the youngest, and it is a very interesting visit to complement your weekend in the area. Some vineyards of the Alt Empordà still have som remains of the the Spanish Civil War history. We recommend you the route Wine&Bunkers, offered by Cooperativa de Garriguella, very entertaining for children and adults, where you can visit the bunkers that are hidden in the middle of the vineyards, and give you a small idea of how was the daily routine form people living there to defend themself from "the enemy".
