Itinerary Costa Brava Deluxe A lovely route just to do it your way. You can use either a touring or a road bike depending on the difficulty level that you choose. We adapt the itinerary to make sure that you live an incredible experience.

We will ride throughout the amazing Costa Brava, famous for its crystal water coves, steep cliffs and picturesque fishing villages.

We are going to discover the most rural and unknown part of the Empordà region. A tile of vineyards, cereal, fruit, all kind of vegetables and even rice fields, sorrounded by an endless number of medieval villages, romanesque churches and old castles that will set us out on a time travel in this historical land inhabited in past centuries by iberian, greek, roman and modern pirates.

The city of Girona is to be discovered as well. 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.

For 6 days we can ride calmly through little rural roads with excellent tarmac and undulating surface that will let us enjoy a landscape with an intense 100% mediterranean flavour.

We will lodge in some of the most exclusive hotels in Costa Brava and will enjoy the catalan gastronomy, starting our day with a typical breakfast like the world famous "pa amb tomàquet" (a slice of bread with tomato rubbed over it and seasoned with salt and olive oil) and "embutit" (different kinds of cold meats and cold cuts), ending our journey with a good mediterranean or typical "Empordà" dishes, accompanied of course by a good "Empordà" DO (Denomination of Origin) wine.

A one of a kind tour for an unforgettable vacation!!!


We are waiting for you!!!
