BARCELONA SPORTS GUIDE
Walking around the city discovering its wonders could be considered a relaxing and gratifying activity. But Barcelona has a lot more to offer! Our city has always been closely linked to sports, that’s why you can find so many sport activities here, whether you like practicing it or watching it. Locals love it, why not do the same as them and practice or learn about sports in Barcelona?
These are our favorite activities for sport in Barcelona:
Climbing and zip lines
Have you ever heard about an Urban Forest (Bosc Urbà)? This brilliant idea is a new concept of an adventurous activity inside the city. Reusing a metal web supporting solar panels, this company has created a great sport facility with zip wires, bridges, webs… for families and people who would love to experience extreme sports in Barcelona.
Barcelona is a bike friendly city. It has 170.8 km of bike lanes. Only locals can use Bicing, a bike rental service with stands all over Barcelona. But if you would like to go cycling around the city, there are a lot of rent bikes companies in town, most of them around the Barceloneta district and the Port Vell. Check out our recommended Barcelona bike tours, too: it’s a fun way to explore the city!
Being located by the Mediterranean sea, it’s not strange that in Barcelona watersports are extremely popular: not for nothing we have 3 miles of beach and 3 marinas! Plus the Barcelona water temperature rarely drops below 10ºC (50F). The Centre Municipal de Vela is a local reference for Barcelona watersports: they organize kayak, paddle-surf, scuba diving and windsurf activities for beginners, as well as sail boat rides along the coast.
AND BONUS! What about F1 racing?
