The 7 day tour is designed to give you all the best that Girona has to offer!
Yes, it’s 7 different routes- which include the famous Mediterranean coast COSTA BRAVA; iconic well known climbs; many medieval villages routes and just enough time to take in the beautiful scenery of Catalunya while on your bike! 

With more time to experience life in Girona- you will not only have time to walk the streets, but enjoy some more down town.

Tour Itinerary

Distance: 630km
 Accent (Climb) 350m
After a long travel day- the Canet loop is perfect for the day of arrival in Girona, just to loosen up the legs.

It’s a short ride, but still has some small hills to climb. On this loop you will have a short glimpse of what the landscape of Girona looks like and what to expect of your stay in Girona. Small roads with no cars- all made for you. Beautiful views of the Catalunyan landscape and the route will pass just at foothills of Rocacorba

2:30 hours
Breakfast, Lunch

Distance: 65km
 Accent (Climb) 927m ⛰Over the years, this ride has come to be known as the “Hincapie Loop”, after George Hincapie, one of many professional cyclists who has at one time called Girona home.

Starting at La Comuna, we take in Girona’s most famous road bike climb, Els Àngels, followed by some speedy descending, to the picturesque medieval village of Monells, with it’s beautiful cobbled square is a must. We continue on through some rolling terrain, then up the Santa Pellaia climb – popular among pro athletes because of its soft, steady gradient. Views abound, over the Gavarres natural park, on both climbs.

The descent from Santa Pellaia to Cassa de la Selva is fast but fun, and we come back in to Girona from the south, returning to the Barri Vell (Old Town)

Hincapie Loop

4 hours
Breakfast, Lunch

Distance: 105km
 Accent (Climb) 1321m ⛰
Sant Hilari climb is very loooong, 25 km, but still easy with a average gradient of 2,6%. You climb to 820m, not exactly in the clouds, but it’s a stunning climb. The first 10 km are very easy, but as soon at you pass the small mountain town Osor it starts kicking in with a solid 5-7% for 7 km and then it flattens out again for the last part.
We love the climb because it offers great peace and beauty all year round. After Osor, the probability of seeing any cars is highly unlikely- making it feel like these roads were paved for you.
Who doesn’t enjoy a fast descent and some rolling hills back home into Girona

Breakfast, Lunch
Day 4 :
Bon Mati

Distance: 53km
 Accent (Climb) 550m⛰
The Bon Mati loop makes a beautiful route for day 3. Essentially a  half day ride with easy and short climbs and a great view of the mountains. Like so many other routes in Girona and around Catalunya, there is very little traffic- giving you the feeling that these roads were made just for you!

It’s all worth it- view is indescribable. Panoramic.  On a clear day you can see all the way to the Costa Brava as well as the Pyrenees mountains.

 

2 hours
Breakfast, Lunch
Day 5 :
Rocacorba

Distance: 71km
 Accent (Climb) 1500m⛰
The ride leading to the bottom of the Rocacorba climb is a route of beautiful rolling hills, allowing you to save energy on the small hills which you will need for Rocacorba. Easily one of Girona’s best-known and toughest cycling climb. It’s not a steady climb, instead some very steep parts and then some flats.

The most challenging of the day will be mid way with a 3 km climb with an average of 10% gradient, and then again the last bit where it kicks in with a 10% gradient for the last 1,5 km.

It’s all worth it- view is indescribable. Panoramic.  On a clear day you can see all the way to the Costa Brava as well as the Pyrenees mountains.

Distance: 113km
 Accent (Climb) 1700m⛰
The Coast loop is a definite MUST!
The route along the way hits the 10km climb of Sant Grau, reaching 8-9%gradient in some places. The highlight of this route is the descent along the coast with magnificent views of the Mediterranean sea.
Hitting the bottom of the descent, we ride along the coast towards Sant Feliu de Guixols, and stop at Dulce Pikika-a favorite place amongst the Pro’s in Platja d’Aro.
Our way home will pass the small climb- La Ganga, and then it’s Els Angles from the back.
The top of Els is the finish line- from there it’s only 15 km downhill home to Girona Bari Vell.

Breakfast, Lunch

Distance: 118km
 Accent (Climb) 1300m⛰

the Olot loop we will reach the doorstep of the Pyrenees Mountains. Olot is surrounded by a volcanic field, also known as the Garrotxa volcanic Natural Park, and is some of the most interesting volcanic landscapes in Europe can be found in La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone

We start out at 120m altitude and reach 700m before descending down to Olot- approximate 500m. In the winter it can be pretty cold, but the view of snow on the top of the Pyrenees Mountains, you may quickly forget.

If the weather allows it, we will have a coffee stop in a small idyllic medieval village at the foot of the Pyrenees before heading back to Girona
