If you are in Girona, it is worth driving the 30 minutes to Banyoles to see the old town and visit the large lake. It really is quite idyllic.

We did a round of the lake and it was quite nice and so easy because it's very flat. And if you want to take a bath you have two nice areas to do it with life guard.

Banyoles is easy to reach by bus from Girona--take the bus toward Serinya'. The town doesn't have a lot to see, but the lake is simply beautiful. It is a volcanic lake with nice paths for strolling or running.

This incredible place is something else. You can be close to nature, in peace and solitude even in the height of summer. Morning , noon, or evenings this area is fabulous. Walk, cycle or just sit by this peaceful and pretty lake. Inland heaven !

Lake Banyoles is great for any type of outdoor activity, I strongly recommend walking/hiking around the perimeter of the lake to enjoy its natural beauty and fauna!

Big lake, good for renting a bicycle and cycle around. Good to be at the sun and see the views. Good area for parking, to eat and close to other small cities around.
