Day 2Els Angels
Total distance60kmTotal climb1000m

The Els Ãngels loop is one of the most famous rides in Girona and we recommend you try this today. It is a favourite of the pros that live and train here. It’s a great welcome to Girona too as the route crosses the Les Gavarres mountains twice but the ride is a relatively relaxing 60km route. You can also follow the 2009 Tour de France route out to Cassã de la Selva.

Day 3Sant Grau
Total distance100kmTotal climb1500m

This ride gives you a taste of the 2009 Tour de France. You will ride along the famous coastal road, one of the most stunning sections of road you can experience on a bike. The ride is tough with plenty of undulating sections and punchy climbs but this ride is a must if you’re in Girona.

Day 4Camprodon
Total distance92kmTotal climb1835m

Today is a challenging ride, gradually ascending all day into the southern Pyrenees. You will experience some beautiful, scenic roads along the way and the ride finishes today in the mountain village of Camprodon.

Day 5Mare de Dacu del Mont
Total distance154kmTotal climb3650m

Today offers a truly spectacular ride. You will experience breathtaking views, the best of which is atop the climb of the ride, Mare de Déu del Mont. The climb is lengthy and offers a challenging day in the saddle but it’s relatively gradual ascent means that no part of the day is too punchy.

Day 6Vallter 2000
Total distance45kmTotal climb1231m

Vallter 2000 has featured in both the Vuelta a España and Volta a Catalunya and is therefore recognised as a very famous Catalonian climb. The climb is one of only four climbs in the area that climbs to over 2000m. Keep plenty in the legs during the start of the day as, although the climb is steady, there are some steep sections exceeding 10%. The views from the Vallter 2000 ski resort are spectacular.
