Pass vineyards, ride alongside golden beaches with waves crashing against the shore and then head up to hilltop villages en route to Gala's Pubol castle.

Their will be a few challenging rides mixed between some leisurely ones, ensuring there is plenty of time to explore the area as well as enjoying some great cycling.  

DAY 1Arrival

Arrive into Barcelona or Girona airport and we will transfer you to Girona to start your trip.

DAY 2Girona to Sant Feliu de Guíxols

You'll be eased into the week with a cycle along the Greenway cycle path, totally traffic free and the site of a disused railway line. You'll head to the beaches of Sant Feliu de Guixols, a fishing village to enjoy a glass of Rioja watching the waves crash against the sparkling coast.

Today's cycling is approximately 45km.

DAY 3Sant Feliu to Calella de Palafrugell

It's time to explore the Costa Brava coastline. Cycle through Emporda and take in the wonders of hidden coves and quaint villages, located on top of  hills peppered with wild flowers. Take a break from cycling and explore some of the bays in foot, before cycling to tonight's accommodation, situated in the chic seaside town of Calella de Palafrugell. 

Today's cycling is approximately 27km.

DAY 4Calella de Palafrugell to Bordils

Continue cycling north through the countryside today, passing dotted stone houses and castles en route to Pubol, a hamlet so small it can just about be classed as a village. One stone house has a particular significance. Bought by Dali as a gift to his beloved wife, it now operates as a museum. After a day's cycling you'll be treated to an authentic Catalan meal at tonight's accommodation.

Today's cycling is approximately 40km.

DAY 5Bordils to Sant Pere Pescador

Delve further north today as you ride through the vineyards and green olive fields of Alt Emporada. This prefect day will finish with a cycle along the beach where you can take in Emporion, the Roman city which brought wine to the region.   

Today's cycling is approximately 37km.

DAY 6Circular Figueres

As you cycle down lanes and country roads, take some time out and appreciate the peace and tranquility. These quite roads lead to the acclaimed Dali Museum, his legacy to the town. When you've finished finding out about this fascinating artist, they'll be plenty of time to potter around the city of Figueres.    

Today's cycling is approximately 50km. 

DAY 7Sant Pere to Girona

It's the final ride today and it's probably the toughest! The ride takes you from Sant Pere back across Emporda, crossing Les Garrigues Grans, the foothills of the Les Gavarres mountains. You will jump on a train back to Girona to avoid the city traffic. 

Today's cycling is approximately 29km.

DAY 8Departure

After breakfast at the hotel it's time to continue with your onward travel. 


The stunning medieval city of Girona is the jewel in northern Catalonia’s crown. Your ride begins here and takes in the stunning Catalonia hills and coastlines. The region offers superb dining, cultural exploration and magical cycling.


The weather in Catalonia makes it one of the reasons why it has become such a popular cycling destination. The cycling season can begin as early as March and April which offers cool Spring riding. The summer is warm but not usually sweltering like some other Mediterranean destinations and the Autumn cycling season can last sometimes until late November. 


Your accommodation will be a combination of hotels and a farmhouse.
You will be met and collected at Girona airport on your arrival and be provided with a transfer back to the airport on your final day. There is also the possibility of being met at Barcelona if you prefer although this is a  longer transfer.  
Your stay will be bed and breakfast.  
This is a self guided holiday allowing you to explore Catalonia at your own pace. The holiday includes daily rides, 6 in total which will be provided to you along with route books, maps and GPS. These will be sent to you once you have booked your holiday with Love Velo and each file will be titled with a short description of the ride and the distance. If you would like to see the profile of each route, we recommend that you download the files before your holiday and open them with a GPS viewer such as this. If you would like guiding instead, please just ask our cycle experience team.  
Entry to the Salvador Dali museum is included. 
You will want to know that your bike is in great condition and that you won’t have any mechanical problems during your ride. Our bikes are extremely well serviced and maintained but in the very unlikely event there is a mechanical issue with the bike (not including basic maintenance such as slipped chains or punctures), we will provide you with an emergency number for someone to come out and repair or replace your bike.
