Description

After meeting your guide you’ll travel by train to the centre of Catalonia, arriving in the Penedès wine region one hour later. Thanks to the bright sun and the Mediterranean Sea, this region has one of the widest varieties of grapes of any wine region in the world.

The tour takes place in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. It’s in these fields where the most international Catalan product is born: cava. You’ll get to know the origins of this sparkling wine on an entertaining journey though the history and culture of the town.

First you’ll visit Freixenet, one of the most traditional cellars in the country, dating back to 1861. Here, you’ll learn everything about the cava production process, from the first pressing of the grapes to the secondary fermentation. You’ll also get to taste a selection of their cavas.

Next, enjoy a walking tour through the centre of Sant Sadurní and learn about the importance of cava in the historical development of the area.

The morning will end at the La Fassina cava welcome centre, a former distillery that now offers an interactive journey through the history and culture of Sant Sadurní.

Spectacular
This trip was well worth it. Away from the city you see amazing views of Catalunya. The salt mountain was spectacular, it's definitely worth seeing. My family loved every part of the trip. Our tour guide Mauriusz was very helpful and knowledgeable. They picked us up at our apartment and kindly dropped us off at the restaurant we were wanting to go to in the evening.

Cardona and Salt Mine Tour
Overall a great day! We specifically came to Barcelona to book a day trip to Cardona and Salt Mountain. Communication with the tour operator was excellent, they were very quick to respond and professional. Our tour guide was also professional and kind, arriving at the specified time (9am). He was also very accommodating asking about car seats for the kids, advising what parts may not be suitable for those who are less mobile, and helping out when some of the passengers got car sick. Unfortunately the day of our tour there were protests/strikes all over the state. Our driver did his best to go around it all to get to our destinations. We had to miss out on the salt mines and entering Cardona Castle. We were able to walk around the castle, but as i mentioned, we came to Barcelona specifically to visit Cardona, so this was a disappointment. No fault of the tour operator as the protests and strikes were not in their control. I was expecting a walking tour of the town of Cardona or maybe a bit more history of the Castle and town, but we didn’t get that. Instead of the Salt Mines we went to Monserrat, which was beautiful and a lovely replacement for the Salt Mines. We were brought back as close to our hotel as possible (due to the demonstrations), around 3:30 pm, so the tour was no where near 11 hours long (but again, mostly due to missing out on some attractions due to the strike). Overall, I would definitely recommend this tour operator, just keep the lines of communication open as per your expectations.

Fabulous tour to Cardona and Salt Mountain
We had the best small tour we have been on. From the pick up at our apartment to the drop off at the end of the tour, our guide Ruben was amazing. The tour he provided at the castle, the walk through the Village of Cardona and the trip through the Salt Mountain were informative and the scenery was breathtaking taking. I highly recommend Ruben and the entire company.
