Green Ways: From Pyrenees to Costa Brava Itinerary A route that travels along Vies Verdes (Green Ways), former railways trasnsformed and adapted to pedestrians and cyclists. Given its smooth slope is a very reachable itinerary, suited to enjoy the ride surrounded by a very diverse landscape.

it can be divided into 3 major parts:

1- La ruta del ferro i del carbó (route of coal and iron) takes its name from the forges tradition in the zone and the coal mines of Ogassa. It follows the old railway that went from Ripoll to Toralles and stands out for its high mountain landscape and for its great romanesque monuments, like Santa Maria de Ripoll monastery (XII Century).

2-Ruta del Carrilet I starts in the Volcanic Zone of la Garrotxa, the best example of volcanic landscape in Iberian Peninsula, and follows the old narrow-gauge railway that went from Olot to Girona.

3-Ruta del Carrilet II crosses the regions of Gironès and Baix Empordà following also the old narrow-gauge railway, known as the Feliuet that went from Girona to Sant Feliu de Guíxols between 1892 and 1969.

At the end of the day we will lodge in charming little hotels, selected upon its quality and personal treatment and will enjoy the delicious catalan gastronomy.
