The Federation of Hiking Organizations of Catalonia (FEEC), has the pleasure of inviting you to discover some of the most charming places in the south of Catalonia.
Between the 3 and 10 of May of 2020 we will celebrate the second edition of Catalonia Trek Festival, an event where you will be able to know the best landscapes of the Costa Daurada and the Terres de l’Ebre, the two tourist brands of the regions of Tarragona. An area of extraordinary beauty, where the mountain practically flows into the Mediterranean and where the human and cultural footprint goes back to the time of the Roman Empire.

With its hub in the Empordanese town of Roses, the Catalonia Trek Festival takes place between 30 April and 7 May 2017, a unique event which aims to bring together hiking and culture around the core theme of the E12 - the hiking trail of the Mediterranean Arch.
