Itinerari Vies Verdes: Del Pirineu a la Costa Brava Route that goes by the Green Ways, old railways that have been transformed and adapted to cyclers and pedestrians. It is not a difficult route and will let us enjoy what we may find in our way.

It is divided in two sections:

1- LA RUTA DEL CARRILET D'OLOT: 57 km that cross three regions and 12 villages. It starts in the Parc Natural de la Zona Volcànica de la Garrotxa (Garrotxa's Volcanic Zone National Park), the best example of volcanic landscape in Iberian Peninsula, and ends in the city of Girona, following the valleys of the rivers Fluvià, Brugent and Ter

2-LA RUTA DEL FELIUET: Another formar railway that connected Girona and Sant Feliu de Guíxols. With a distance of about 43 km will let us know regions of Gironès and Baix Empordà.

This route is specially designed for families with children that are at least 7/8 years old (even though it all depends on the chld's preparation). Stages are very comfortable, calm and safe, and remember that our support vehicle is always available in case you needed it.

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.

We are waiting for you!!!
