How is the trek organized?
The walkers should be registered at the beginning of the stage or stages they do. Every day we walk about 15 to 25 kilometers along with an artist or a group of artists who have prepared something for us. The path follows a topographical spiral down and around the region, crossing urban and rural areas, natural landscapes, and seaside or mountain trails. Both during the walk and at stops, the artists perform and make their artistic interventions—poetry, dance, installations, music. Day and night.
The trip is open to the public, and offered in all possible formats: People can walk every day, or they can just do two or three days, or they can simply show up at a meeting point and enjoy the performance. Walkers can start or stop their journey at any time and adapt their trip to their personal plans. Grand Tour is a project for all types of audiences—families with children and solo travels, old and young, experienced walkers and beginners.
What do the artists do?
Each artist has made a personal and site-specific proposal for Grand Tour. Music, dance, art in nature, poetry… Some artists will also propose participatory activities. The artists perform in our starting points, the points of arrival or during the journey. Every day is different.
As an artist, how can I join Grand Tour?
The response of the guest artists has been very positive and we cannot schedule more interventions this year. But Grand Tour will continue next year and artists who wish to participate in future editions can make their proposals from November 2017 onwards.
Do we have to walk many days?
Each person, family or group decides when walking with us, and for how long. If you want to walk several days with us, we will provide information on accommodation for you to book. If you wish we can do the booking for you. We recommend to do the reservations in advance, especially if you program for a few days, or if you walk in weekends.
How do I know which is the route of each day?
Check our Tour Guide. There you can find all the information about starting points, additional meeting points, arrival, performances of artists and participatory activities each day. With this information you can decide when to join and when to leave. Remember that if you walk one full day a vehicle will take you the place where you started.
