Itinerary

Day 1: Girona Warm up ride - 30 km

A fantastic way to warm up and get accustomed to the un-crowded and beautiful riding that the Girona area offers. The ride is about 30 km in length and offers the opportunity to experience some of the beautiful and tranquil Girona countryside as you cycle along.

Day 2: Girona loop - 100 km

This is one of the great Girona road rides with some of the most spectacular scenery on offer in the whole of the Girona area. There is plenty of time to set your rhythm with some quality climbing and buzzing descents that just seem to go on and on. This ride will clearly explain why so many professional riders choose Girona as their training base!

Day 3: Girona to the Mediterranean Sea - 70 km

Today we leave Girona heading for the coast. We cycle through the rolling Girona countryside before heading towards the coast for our first good climb up and over the coastal L’Ardenya range. Once at the coast we join the famous Tossa de Mar road that was part of the ‘2009 Tour de France’ stage from Girona to Barcelona. We follow the beautiful coastal road as it hugs the sea towards Sant Feliu de Guixols where we are based for the next two nights.

Day 4: Les Gavarres loop 1 - 100 km

We spend the majority of this ride cycling through the Pine and Cork forest of the ‘Les Gavarres” protected area. We cross over the ‘Les Gavarres’ range twice before making our way ‘up and over’ the L’Ardenya coastal mountain range back towards the sea. We fly along the stunning coastal road before returning to our hotel for a well earned rest.

Day 5: Medieval Villages - 70 km

Today we head out on a beautiful and more relaxing ride that takes us through the plains of the Baix Emporda, stopping off at the timeless medieval villages that are dotted throughout this area. We then make our way to our final beautifully restored 4 star hotel in one of the most charming medieval villages of the area.

Day 6: Les Gavarres loop 2 – 70 km

We finish our week of riding heading up and over the ‘Els Angels’ mountain, enjoying the stunning views of the Pyrenees all the way to the Mediterranean Sea. We then enjoy one of the best descents of the week into Girona for a quick coffee before heading out into the countryside again. We have one last climb up and over the ‘Les Gavarres’ mountain range before returning to our luxury hotel to put our feet up for a well earned drink!
