Booking your stay
ONLINE BOOKING CALENDAR >>
Thank you for your interest in coming to stay with us here at Forest Days and having an adventure in the beautiful Catalan countryside!
Forest Days is very happy to announce that we will be re-opening our 2020 Season
from Thursday 25th June
and we have never been happier to welcome you all back to the forest.
Forest Days is a small and secluded venture by design and a stay here with us has always been an exclusively private outdoor experience, in the middle of nature.
With only four, remarkably separated camps, interaction with other guests has naturally always been at a minimum (or non-existent!) if desired.
Our tents have always been meticulously prepared and all our laundry continues to be professionally cleaned in our local town.
Each camp continues to have its own private eco-toilet to negate the need to use the on-grid toilets in the Shower Shed, if you choose, and with 5 hectares of forest and meadows shared between our 4 camps, there is lots of space for everyone.
Because of this, in preparing to re-open our 2020 season, we have had to make relatively few changes to the overall experience of a stay at Forest Days.
The key changes which you need to be aware of and we ask you kindly to read them before making a booking, are as follows:
Introduced: 27th May 2020
No Breakfast during 2020 season
In order to minimize the chance of unnecessary personal contact and eliminate excessive manipulation, sadly breakfast will no longer be included and delivered to the camps.
This is reflected in all our tariffs by a reduction of 10% of the nightly rate.
For new bookings (from 27/5 onwards) this discount will be automatically applied and clearly displayed at the point of making your booking on our online platform. For existing bookings, it will be applied at the point of the final payment.
New Booking Policy
All bookings will be subject to a new, flexible rebooking policy. This new policy supersedes that outlined in our terms and conditions and in our ‘Key Points’ section of the booking page.
A 25% deposit of the cost of your stay is still required to secure your booking.
However, the final balance of the booking will only be collected 2 weeks before your stay, not a month before as has been customary, so you can be as sure as possible your holiday is going ahead.
Should a further “State of Alarm” arise and travel restrictions be enforced again or we are again forced to close, you will have the flexibility to change the date of your booking to a new date in 2020, at no extra cost.
Should there be a lack of availability in 2020, your booking can be transferred to the 2021 Season, once we open our 2021 calendar. Any difference in price between the bookings will remain to be paid.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to this flexible rebooking policy and the late final balance payment, no refunds of either the deposit or balance will be offered.
Hand sanitizer and cleaning
As you would expect, hand sanitizer will be provided in all parts of Forest Days where there is any possible interaction with other people. Our cleaning regimes have also changed to ensure an additional focus on the cleaning of the few common surfaces around the site.
Contactless outdoor Check-In
We have always carried out our check-ins outdoors … even if it’s raining! We will continue in much the same way, just with some changes to recognise the need for social distancing when welcoming you.
Our “Shower Shed” provides 2 fully equipped, individual on-grid bathrooms, with a hot shower, flushing toilet and washbasin.
Each bathroom will be allocated and uniquely shared by 2 camps only, so reducing by half the number of guests using the space.
Outdoor Cooking has become even more separated.
We have re-configured and extended our outdoor Forest Kitchen to provide 2, independent and self-contained cooking spaces to ensure you can cook in separation.
Each cooking space will be allocated to only 2 camps, so reducing by half the number of guests using each space.
If you wish to cook in this wonderful outdoor space you can either bring your own equipment or hire one of our cooking kits. Please note that communal cooking utensils for the BBQs have been removed but washing up elements will still be provided for each camp.
PLEASE NOTE :
Forest Days is in the health region of “Catalonia Central”.
In order for your booking to be considered valid, please ensure, before making a reservation,
that the current travel restrictions of your health region will allow you to travel to Forest Days
on the date of your reservation.
And that’s it.
The essence of Forest Days’ experience remains untouched. You can still do all the things you used to do here.
You can order our fantastic, 100% organic sealed BBQ Packs prepared by our local butchers Cal Monegal, to enjoy as the sun sets.
You can grab a delicious artisan cold beer from our Honesty Bar.
You can watch the stars whilst you listen to the night time owls.
We will continue to help you plan (albeit now from 2 meters distance!) exciting days to make the most of everything our local area has to offer.
And we are confident that the forest, with all its fascinating creatures, sounds, shadows, silences and trees, will work its magic in restoring our joy and smiles.
All of us here at Forest Days, will be awaiting to welcome you with our ineffable good humour and energy.
We hope to see you soon in the forest.
The Forest Days Team
If you would like to make a booking for 2020, we kindly ask that you take a couple of minutes to read though the following points as they contain important information about your stay and hopefully answer most of the questions you might have.

Check In / Out Times
Your camp will be available for check-in between 3pm and 8pm on the day of your arrival. Please be aware that the check-in process will take ~30-40 mins while a team member shows you all the important features of the installations so adherence to the check-in times is very important.
We ask that you vacate your camp by 12pm on the day of your departure.
If you need to arrive or leave outside these times please contact us to discuss.
What’s Included (Updated 27/5/20)
We’ve tried to think of everything you might need to make your stay as comfortable as possible so you should only need to bring your own personal items.
Each camp consists of a fully furnished, 5m bell tent and includes:
All bed linen and towels.
Tea and coffee making facilities in your tent.
Your own private eco bathroom with toilet and hand basin.
During your stay you also have full use of the communal facilities including hot showers, flushing toilets, honesty bar as well as whole forest to explore and relax in!
Wood Stoves and Campfires
During the colder months, typically from late September to late April, a wood burning stove is installed in your tent and comes with all the wood you will need to keep you warm throughout your stay.
Please note that the exact dates when we install and remove the stoves will always be subject to weather conditions and fire restrictions at the time.
Remember that during this period is not possible for us to accommodate more than 2 people per tent.
During this period, evening campfires are also held in our communal central area - subject to the authorisation of our local Forest Rangers.
Coming With Children
:: FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN 2020 :: The wood burning stoves will be removed from the tents between 21st May and 27th September therefore during this period, families with children (6 y.o. and older) can be accommodated.
Children are very welcome in some of our camps at Forest Days once we remove the wood burning stoves. This is typically from late-May until late-September but will always be subject to weather conditions and fire restrictions at the time.
Our minimum age requirement for children staying at Forest Days is 6 years old. If you do have slightly younger children who you think would enjoy the experience please contact us to discuss.
There are two ways to accommodate children in the camp:
Inside the main tent: a maximum of 2 additional children can be accommodated in the main tent where comfortable z-mattresses are provided, along with all the necessary bedding. These can be folded up to make seats during the day and laid out as beds at night.
Satellite tent: For stays of 3 days or more we also offer the option of pitching a smaller satellite tent close to the main tent. It is the same type of tent as the main one just smaller and is pitched directly on the ground. It is as lovingly furnished as the main tents and is really popular with children who enjoy their own space and leaves the adults the whole of the main tent for themselves! This satellite tent can accommodate up to 3 children which is the maximum permitted per camp.
You can see some images of a satellite tent here:
The Satellite Tent
The junior explorers' own den
Cost per child: ages 6 - 15 = 35 Euros / night
Children aged 16 and over are considered adults - please contact us to discuss.
Cost per satellite tent: 45 Euros / night
If you would like to make a booking for a group or book the entire site for an event you can still use our booking tool to check our availability, however we then ask that you contact us directly via email or through our contact form to discuss options and prices.
Cooking at Forest Days
Cooking is not permitted inside the tents or in any part of the camps - even with your own equipment - during any period of the year since our local fire regulations are very strict in this aspect.
If you would like to cook your own food in the outdoors while you are here at Forest Days you are welcome to use our designated outdoor kitchen area, our new – Forest Kitchen – which is an outdoor cooking area with gas stoves and a gas BBQ where you can prepare a delicious supper while the sun goes down.
If you don't want to worry about bringing your own cooking equipment we can provide you with a lovingly prepared cooking kit which contains all the pots, pans and cutlery you will need to cook up a fine meal so you don’t need to worry about anything.
The Cooking Kits also include: Olive Oil, Salt and ground Coffee for approximately two days.
The tariffs for Cooking Kit rental are as follows:
Couples cooking kit : 25 Euros per stay
Family cooking kit : 35 Euros per stay
The Forest Kitchen
Sunset cooking at its best
Coming with Pets
Unfortunately we are unable to accept animals on the site. We have a number of our own animals which roam freely round the site and the forest itself is full of wildlife, especially at night and we’ve found that even the most well behaved pet finds it all a bit too much to maintain their calm!
We hope to welcome you soon to Forest Days!
