Catalonia Cycling Holiday
Take a journey through Catalonia and combine five days cycling with a relaxing stay in a beautifully converted farmhouse.
This 5 day, 4 night guided Catalonia cycling holiday covers approximately 300 kilometers starting in Barcelona and finishing in Girona.
Sandwiched between the Pyrenees mountains and the Costa Brava coastline, Girona is world famous with cyclists for its calm and safe roads, all year pleasant weather and stunning variety of terrain. Join over a 100 professional cyclists who live in the region and experience for yourself what it’s like to cycle in Catalonia.
Day one takes us on a gentle ride from Barcelona along the coast to the picturesque seaside town of Blanes where we’ll spend the first night in the comfort of a four star hotel. Take it easy in the evening with a stroll along the beach and dine beside the Mediterranean.
Heading inland on day two, we will cycle through the scenic countryside that surrounds Girona as we make our way to the villa. Discover the historic old town of Girona, where we will stop for lunch on one of the lively plazas along the river.
Based in the villa for the remaining three days we will cycle some of the best routes in the region with each day offering a unique experience full of historical sites and breathtaking scenery.
Some highlights include: wind your way through the hills of the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park and visit the medieval village of Besalu and Castellfollit de la Roca. Ride the Costa Brava and visit the ruins of the ancient city of Empuries, founded in 575 BC. Stop for lunch by the crystal clear waters of the Banyoles lake. Appreciate the wonders of Salvador Dali as we cycle to the museum in his birthplace, the town of Figueres.
Spend your time off the saddle and unwind by the pool in our own private villa. Set within vast private land this secluded farmhouse is perfectly located to enjoy the best riding in the region and to sample some local culture by night in the city of Girona. Enjoy traditional Catalan food on the barbecue, accompanied by some locally produced wine or cava. Or take a stroll through the surrounding farmlands.
The tour has been carefully planned for you to enjoy your experience both on and off the bike and includes the use of our carbon fibre road bikes. All routes will be guided and accompanied by our support van.
The tour also includes four nights accommodation, breakfast plus either lunch or dinner and transportation of your luggage on the first two days. We will send you a selection of photos, videos, Strava stats and 3D playback of all the routes at the end of the tour.
The starting point will be in Barcelona and will finish in Girona. The town has its own airport and is about an hour train journey to return to Barcelona after the tour.
