Several British media influencers also had the opportunity to discover the range of tourism options in the Costa Brava and Girona Pyrenees through a programme of hiking and cycling activities that included the product commercialised by tour operator Explore Catalonia. An editor of swimming magazine H2Open also had a chance to experience the Vies Braves first-hand. Finally, writer Patricia Schultz from New York had the opportunity to explore the destination’s culture and cuisine.

Two writers for the American travel blog Forget Someday participated in a blogtrip that showcased the Costa Brava’s food and wine, culture, nature and active tourism. With a similar itinerary, Italian blogger Silvia Carotto and author of the The girl with a suitcase blog also had the opportunity to explore the destination.
