Walking: series of walks
Walking is a natural physical activity that provides health benefits for people of all ages. It is also a habit that is becoming increasingly popular among Barcelona residents. For this reason, and to foster healthy physical exercise, the Barcelona Sports Institute promotes various walking programmes during the year.
Advice before you begin this physical activity:
Barnatresc is an annual programme of non-competitive walks, suitable for walkers of all ages, which promotes a simple, healthy activity that is open to everyone. On average, the routes are between 12 and 15 km long.
The organization is in charge of the Barcelona Sports Institute and the Association of Hiking Entities of Barcelonès.
• Reach the starting point on foot, by public transport or Bicing.
• It is a good idea to bring water from home, in a canteen or similar bottle, to avoid plastic waste.
• Use the appropriate containers for recycling.
• If the walk passes through a green area, use the established paths, without opening up shortcuts that spoil the area.
Due to the restrictions arising from the covid-19 pandemic, it has been necessary to modify some of the characteristics of this activity, for this reason it is recommended to consult the Barnatresc Cycle website.
