Itinerari Girona i VoltantsA very complete route with lodging in a central Girona hotel to discover the city after evey day's route. A place with the charm of big cities but with no crowds. Located in a privileged site between the sea and the mountains it offers us a great display of unique and spectacular monuments, testimony of its millenary history. Moreover, Girona has become headquarters and training place of some professional cycling teams, like Garmin-Sharp. The whole province provides us, throughout all year, with the best conditions for the practice of cycling. Good roads and communications, nice weather, excellent gastronomy and great tourist infrastructure.

4 great routes. Every day we will explore a different area of this wonderful zone, discovering unique places like Parc nacional de la Zona Volcànica de la Garrotxa (Garrotxa's Volcanic Zone Natural Park), the best example of volcanic landscape in Iberian Peninsula and one of the most important in Europe (with more than 40 volcanoes).

At the end of every stage we will enjoy different examples of catalan, mediterranean or local cusine, served with a good wine.

We are waiting for you!
