We can tailor make this trip for you

What we love About Dali Inspired Catalonia Cycling Holiday

We love...The Famous Costa Brava Coastline
As you ride round the coast in North-West Spain you will become immersed in the country's golden beaches and picturesque hilltop villages. Cycling is the best way to explore the untouched landscape, from beautiful wild flowers to mysterious hidden coves.
We love...300 Days a Year of Sunshine
The weather in Catalonia is great for the majority of the year, making it perfect for long bike rides across Emporda or relaxing on the beach in the quaint seaside town of Calella de Palafrugell.
We love...Traffic Free Roads
The Greenway cycle path is completely traffic free and is a great way to start your holiday in Spain. The rest of your trip will be made up of countryside and coastal riding making for the perfect cycling environment.

Day by Day

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
Total distance45km

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.

Day 3Sant Feliu to Calella de Palafrugell
Total distance27km

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 on foot before cycling to tonight’s accommodation, situated in the chic seaside town of Calella de Palafrugell.

Day 4Calella de Palafrugell to Bordils
Total distance40km

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.

Day 5Bordils to Sant Pere Pescador
Total distance37km

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.

Day 6Circular Figueres
Total distance50km

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

Day 7Sant Pere to Girona
Total distance29km

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.

Day 8Departure

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