Do activities at El Dalmau


Things to do?

Our guests often come to El Dalmau looking for relax and tranquillity but some others also ask us what they can do during their stay.

For this reason we want to offer you some suggestions to do that you can enjoy either at El Dalmau or using the house as base-camp to get to know the county’s charms in an active way whilst enjoying the excitement in contact with nature.


We recommend you to confirm the activities at the same time you book the house or at least a week prior to the arrival, otherwise we may not be able to guarantee the availability of our guide.

Once the booking is over, we will contact you to schedule the activies.
