The tourist life can be exhausting. When you are visiting a new culture, there’s so much new information to process and assimilate, it can be wonderful to escape the city for a breath of fresh air. Sobremesa’s excursions are day trips to easily reached places outside of town, where you can combine that much-needed fresh air with memorable gastronomical highlights.

Organic Farm Tour and Lunch

We will travel by private car to visit a family-run, organic farm on the outskirts of Barcelona. After a tour of the farm, we will sit down (outside, weather permitting) to a feast prepared by the farmer and his assistants, with the local produce and products. 4 hours, 120 euro per person with a 4 person minimum (can be scheduled for less people at a higher rate).

Winery Tour + Chocolate Factory Visit with Tastings

A visit to the town of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, aka cava town. Cava is Catalan sparkling wine, and all of it is produced in this small region. We will tour one of the oldest producers of the area, and have time to appreciate the beautiful Modernist architecture, as we sip on the local fruits. The tour is combined with a visit to a local chocolate factory nearby. Equipped with chocolate and cava, you can’t go wrong! 4 hours total, 150 per person, minimum 4 people (or inquire for rates for less people)

Collserola Mountain Herb Walk with Picnic

Who would’ve guessed that just a brief train ride from downtown Barcelona there’s a peaceful green space where one can escape the tourist masses and find oneself in the middle of a mountain in just 20 minutes? Our expert gastro-botanist guide will explain the indigenous flora and fauna during an easy 2.5-hour hike that will allow us to work up an appetite that will lead us towards a comforting gourmet picnic prepared by Sobremesa staff. Wine included, of course, it wouldn’t be a real Spanish picnic without it. 150 eu per person, minimum 4 people (or inquire for rates for less people).
