Best places to do sports in Barcelona

The weather is getting better and better in Barcelona, which is perfect for those who love to do sports outdoors. Here are our recommendations for the best spots to do some sports in the city, wether you would like to go for a run, for some biking or doing some yoga.

Carretera de les Aigües

Just at the foot of Parc Natural de la Serra de Collserola, it is a 9 kilometer long track, with amazing view over the city, without any traffic. Perfect for running or biking!

 

Passeig Maritim 

Run next to the sea and enjoy the view! This is an easier path and it’s in the city-center. We recommend to go there early to avoid the crowds! Start from Vila Olimpica Metro station and finish at the famous W hotel!

 

Parc de la Ciutadella

This is one of the most famous and iconic parks of the city, so it is also recommended to go early in the morning to avoid the big crowd. The park is mostly flat and the big trees provide shade and fresh air. Perfect for doing any kind of sports

 

Collserola park

This is also a bit further from the city center, but it worth to visit! Take a short hike or practice yoga in the park while enjoying nature and the views over the city!
