Departure from Barcelona Arc de Triomf
Our meeting point is in Arc de Triomf, early in the morning. The train ride is very beautiful since we can see the splendor of the Maresme coast in the north of Barcelona. On the train we talk about each other, as we are curious about getting to know us.
Breakfast in Canet de Mar
Once we arrive at Canet de Mar, we stop in a local town cafeteria. The owner received us with a great surprise due to the number of the group. Once breakfast is finished, we collect ourselves around the trees. We make a presentation of all the attendees, to know names, and interests. For example, what are the reasons for participating in the hike and wine tour? If it is because of the excursion, the wine, the sea, the mountain, visit the Maresme, etc.
Hiking trail near Sant Pol de Mar
Everyone is smiling, we start the hiking trail. We enter the forest through paths where you can lose it. Obviously, the incline of the mountain with the sea position makes it easier to orient. In some sections, the ascent is demanding. Certainly, we end up arriving at Pedracastell summit. The ascent is from behind in the direction of the sea, which makes the views spectacular. We can see Canet de Mar, Arenys de Mar and Sant Pol de Mar with the Mediterranean breeze in the background.
After the effort, it is very gratifying to rest with the magnificent views from the Creu de Canet. Which is of one of the peaks of Catalonia in its great landscape value from the Maresme, the coast of Barcelona and Catalonia.
Once rested, we continue the route through the ridge of the mountain, quite flat, with some slope section. In general, is very nice from where we can see Montseny and Montnegre.
In the middle of the route, we will stop at the local natural wines vineyards, which are just over 4 years old. The most surprising are the spectacular views from the vineyard with the splendor of the sea and the typical landscape of the Maresme, sea, mountains, vineyards, coastal villages, with the presence of Mataró, Castell de Burriac, and the coast of Barcelona in the background.
