Enjoy spring with these activities
Spring, with its long and sunny days, is an excellent opportunity to explore some outdoor activities. There are many things that you can do with friends or family in the coming months, and they can be for all ages and tastes. First of all we want to propose an activity in nature, close to Barcelona, and where you will be in direct contact with animals. Horse riding is an activity with many advantages, as it can be very therapeutic for many people with certain problems. Horse therapy is also called equine therapy or hippotherapy, where trained horses help you rehabilitate and handle different problems. It can be a physical aspect, from improving muscles or balance, but it can also help people with psychological problems, like autistic children or people with addictions or a mental illness. In Barcelona you can ride horses in many different areas, but the best location is the trails of the Collserola mountain range. At Yumping you can find more information and other alternatives for a spring day in the Catalan capital.

Another fun activity is to take a 4×4 through different areas of the province of Barcelona. This is ideal for those who like nature and would like to explore landscapes, that otherwise could not be easily accessed. In addition, traveling in a 4×4 is always fun and exciting, especially if it is driven by an expert 4×4 driver. Yumping has many more ideas to explore the province of Barcelona. You will get to know the area in a different and more adventurous way. Finally, we would also like to suggest a very peaceful activity, especially if you like birds. Spring is an ideal season to enjoy their singing and to discover different species that live in the forests, near rivers and swamps of the Catalan autonomous region. Ornithology is an activity that many people can benefit from. It is a serene way to spend a few hours, and it also brings a bit of distraction to the mind, for whoever needs it. If you look online at Yumping, you can also find several options for more calm activities. Without a doubt, spring is the perfect season to discover the natural treasures around you, which usually go more or less unnoticed.
