Mr Torres is the founder of Creative Rural.
Degree in Economic and Business Sciences from the University of Barcelona. It grew closely linked to nature and the rural world. Despite being born in Barcelona, his family had a house in a small town of 400 inhabitants in the Catalan region of Moianès, where his childhood and love for nature developed. In fact, and for 30 years, practically every weekend and vacation he lived there.
Those days no cell phones or computers where there, we played freely, houses always had their doors open. Field, forest and garden were just extensions of our room—those days when fun meant getting dirty with sand or mud, telling legends or making up stories.
After several years in the information and communication world, he manages a mountain hut (Refugio de Cap de Rec) in the Spanish Pyrenees. The same shelter, a short time ago, was Kylian Jornet home (a famous world champion in mountain running). It was an idyllic setting away from the big cities where we provided food and lodging for hikers.
“It was a revealing experience discovering how difficult it could be for most people, to be able to spend time planning their weekend or holidays.”
Later, he had the opportunity to actively collaborate for years with a travel agency, discovering for himself, the fascinating complexity of the sector, as well as the best ways to meet the needs of travellers.
We have designed all the stops, visits and activities of our proposals based on stories so that you discover the essence of the territory and become part of its history.
For us, there are two ways to travel: just having fun or having fun and something else. We like to have something more than fun.
ne of our goals is, wherever you go, to reach a positive impact on your visits. So, we establish collaborations with local or regional entities to help them bringing some incomes and visibility.
We do not promote long journeys to avoid generating CO2 footprint.
