Return Details

Your centrally located Barcelona hotel at approximately 12am midnight
Climb aboard a luxurious vehicle in central Barcelona and venture to one of the local villages that pepper the Catalonian countryside. Gain insight into the origin of the correfocs festivals from your knowledgeable guide as you admire your sparkling surroundings by night; learn about how the Catalan tradition began in the 12th century, and how the flames and frivolity represent a fight between good and evil. 

Arrive in the village and be swept into the exuberant atmosphere created by street decorations and colorful costumes; admire the array of effigies and explore the village at leisure before the spectacular outdoor show begins. Awaken your senses to the pulsating rhythm of drums as the fabulous fireworks burst into action and locals dance amid a shower of sparks. 

Immerse yourself in the action and chase daring devils through the crowds, or admire the festivities from the sidelines. At a time pre-arranged with your guide, return to the minivan and reflect on your exuberant experience during the journey back to Barcelona.

Absolutely amazing. DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR. You will have one of the best nights in your life. We were actually part of the parade with fireproof smock and glasses provided. The streets were barricaded off with crowds behind them watching the parade us included for a couple of hours through the streets with fireworks spinning and colour everywhere along with continuous cracking and dancing. our guide knew the people and was with us all the time. Fantastic experience

This by far was one of the best things I did while in Barcelona. My guides were amazing. I was late getting to the meeting location and they didn't mind waiting for me. It was like being in the center of a fireworks display. I enjoyed every minute of it and would do it again and again.

This was a fabulous tour. Pictures do not do justice to the celebration. The experience was made even better by our wonderful local guide Alex Puiol. This is certainly a one-of-a-kind experience.

This was our favorite tour in Spain...
Lynn B

This was our favorite tour in Spain (Madrid, Sevilla, Malaga, and Barcelona). It took about 1-1/4 hours to get to the Banyoles village. Our tour guides, Barbara and Alex of LivingIt, were outstanding! We were treated like royalty at this annual festival where this year, the children were running down the street. We wore the protective caps provided by LivingIt and we were so delighted to run with the children. After the event, we visited with the devils, experienced local food, and took a group picture with all the locals. This was a highly memorable experience. The next day we bought a Catalonian flag in honor of their cause and these wonderful people. The tour is expensive and long, but worth every minute of it.

We really enjoyed this tour and would rank it as one of the best we have ever taken. We participated in the Fire Running festival of a small town. We were welcomed by the local people as honored guests. The festival was fun, the local people were great and we all had a wonderful time. the Tour Guide was interesting and informative and made sure we were right in the middle of everything. All in all a wonderful experience in getting to know and interact with the local people.

Barbara and Alex were incredible. We went to Girona and were lucky to see human towers as well as the fire running. They were able to get us to be part of the human towers. We met the devils before the fire running and they were very happy to share what was going to happen and tell us where to be for the best experience. You will be in the fire running, so be prepared to have sparklers falling all over you. I recommend long sleeves and pants, though you will get hot. This tour takes place all over Catalonia so before you book you may want to consider how far you will be from Barcelona. The time says about 6 hours, our tour was 8 because of where we went and also because it was delayed for a soccer game. All in all one of the best experiences I have had.
