January is all about making and breaking those New Year’s resolutions. We've already broken the diet and waved goodbye to our well-intentioned 'dry January' (well whose silly idea was that anyway!!) But one resolution for 2014 that we are hell-bent on keeping is to have an action-packed year full of even bigger and even better activities for our Barcelona Tours chums.
We are set to make 2014 the year of adventure, action and adrenaline, and boy have we got just the line-up for you. So hold on to your helmets and get ready to see Barcelona as your action-packed playground for the year ahead.
Forget seeing the city from the top of a tourist bus, dust off those skin-tight lycra cycling shorts and prepare to see the city from a completely unique perspective. Our fantastic partners at 'Barcelona by Bike' will take you on a journey of the city with a difference, offering panoramic views and stunning scenery. If you're not already breathless from the 20km cycle down the peaceful Collserola mountain range, wait till you see the views, they can't fail to take your breath away.
Ever heard of Puenting? Well neither had we until recently, but it's all the rage and is currently taking the adventure scene by storm, with Catalunya offering some world class locations for this adrenaline packed sport. It's similar to bungee jumping but instead of bouncing it's all about swinging. Puenting was an activity originally used for rock climbers to help them overcome their fear of falling. Today it is a major sport for adrenaline seekers looking for their next thrill. The insanely brave can try falling backwards, this offers the ultimate adrenaline rush due to the fact that you can't see where you're going. Tried and tested, and guaranteed to leave you buzzing for hours.
Barcelona obviously hosts an endless sea of water sports but one which offers the ultimate rush is that of 'Canyoning'. Away from the sea and up into the lush mountains canyoning (or 'baranquisme' in Catalan) will hurl you into an afternoon of endurance, action and adrenaline. Included in this epic adventure is climbing, swimming, crawling, abseiling, scrambling and even li-loing down narrow gorges formed in the rock face, riddled with numerous drop and waterfalls. This sport is certainly not for the faint-hearted as it offers one of the most adrenaline-fuelled sports on the planet. The stunning scenery in Catalonia is another reason to take on this ultimate challenge as the spectacular rock walls form the backdrop to this amazing day out.
At Barcelona Tours we offer the best action sports the city has to offer. In addition to the above we offer; Skydiving, Laser Combat & Paint Balling, Go-karting, Quad Biking, Sailing, Ballooning and a whole host of water sports and beach activities, to name but a few. If you're looking for an action packed get-away with your friends or as a corporate team building weekend we guarantee to offer the best package for you that will keep you talking for months afterwards.
