Barcelona Garden Tours

PRIVATE BOTANICAL TOURS OF BARCELONA

City parks with a local nature lover

Do you love parks? Are you into trees, flowers or plants in general? Or maybe you are passionate about landscape design? Is visiting local parks a must when you travel abroad? Are you willing to plan a “green” break from your sightseeing?

The Barcelona parks and gardens are often such a great opportunity to get away from the tourist crowds, connect with nature and relax. But also, why not? learn about local (and maybe also exotic) flora, local architecture and history. Because parks are intimately connected with the local evolution.

Gardens are something many would rather do on their own, but… there’s a lot to be missed then! Come with us exploring the most famous parks in Barcelona from the eyes of a local that loves nature as much as you do.

OUR GARDEN TOURS CAN BE TAILORED TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

These tours are great for plants and park lovers that want to go off the beaten path and see a green part of Barcelona that most visitors will miss.

If you are traveling with kids, the Contemporary Garden tour visits parks with playgrounds, and kids also love the Labyrinth of the Historical Parks tour.

If you have walking issues, please note that even if you book a chauffeured tour there will be walking involved inside the parks, with occasional uphill slopes and some sections of stairs.

If you are on a wheelchair, some parks have accessible itineraries. Check with us before booking so we can recommend an itinerary that would work for you.

If you’d like to have a longer day, we’ll be glad to customize an 8-hour itinerary that combines your favorite parks and gardens.

If you’d like to go out of town, check out our tour of the Gaudi sites outside of Barcelona, that takes you to a mountain garden the architect designed along a water stream.
