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