Grand Tour is a trek following a spiral shape. In 2017 the tour will start at Núria, Catalonia, Spain on august 17th and end in Montserrat, Catalonia on september 13th, 300 km altogether.
The trek goes across the Pyrenees, and the Solsonés and Bages regions of central Catalonia.
There are several stages during the trek. In each one an artist or group of artists will share something with the visitors: music, dance, visual arts, poetry…
Every day people walk about 15 to 25 kilometers along with an artist or a group of artists who have prepared something for them. 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.
A proposal for everyone
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.
