Catalonia (Spain) is a land of diverse landscapes: coasts, mountains, rivers and even volcanoes! There’s more to Catalonia’s independent streak and unique customs than its brimming capital of Barcelona. 60 minutes away, the old city turned Game of Thrones film set of Girona has a deep-rooted historical charm and culture dating back more than 2,000 years. And it’s just as deserving of attention. Girona is a preserved pocket of history that is also a gateway to the surrounding region of Gironés, which unearths the beautiful patchwork of the countryside and villages of northeastern Spain. You will train, cycle, climb, hike and swim within this epic historic area !
Without a doubt, the diversity of this trip is what makes it so amazing and unique. Working out, hiking, kayaking, playing, climbing, running in a marvellous historic area, there is something for everyone on this rute. Outdoors lovers will appreciate the beautiful scenery of the area. Foodies will revel in the appetising local dishes. History fans are no doubt going to enjoy diving into the legends that surround each of the quaint little villages and Crossfit freaks will sweat it all out and recharge their batteries.
Training overlooking the astonishing Pyrenees, turning nature into our Crossfit Box. An adventurous trip mixed with tough outdoor and indoor workouts (WODs), delicious food and a sparkle of history. An experience you won’t forget!
DAILY ITINERARY OF OUR EMOM PACKAGE
6 PMish – We’ll give you a warm welcome at Girona train station (100 km away from Barcelona) and walk with you to the hotel you will stay in the ancient city of Girona.

We’ll head off to the CrossFit Girona‘s headquarters where we will get sweaty with the locals during our first indoorCrossFit workout (20:30) before enjoying a traditional Catalan dinner with your travel mates.
Morning – After breakfast we’ll go for an aqua-trekking route an unusual way to discover one of the most beautiful parts of this area, alternating between swimming in the rapids, trekking and jumping.

Morning – After breakfast, we’ll be hiking up to the St Miquel castle, a fortification on top of a beautiful hill. The architectural set or what is left of it, a moat, a shire and part of the castle walls will help to have an idea of the importance of this site during medieval times.
