Perhaps the most beautiful place to cycle

In five days through perhaps the most beautiful cycling area in Spain. From Girona you cycle via small roads past medieval villages to the Costa Brava. The first three overnight places are by the sea. Then you cycle inland through the green park Garrotxa to Olot. With an extra day of rest here and there, you can enjoy a very nice holiday with this package.

Highlights along the way

The Parc Natural de la Zona Volcànica de la Garrotxa is one of the must-see places. With 40 dead volcanoes and more than 20 basaltic lava flows, this protected natural area is the main exponent of a volcanic landscape on the Iberian Peninsula. And a beautiful place to cycle through.

The former monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes in the Cap de Creus Natural Park, is located about 520 meters above sea level and is a nice place to cycle to. The climb is 6.6 kilometers and with an average of 7.7%. the rate of increase is quite steep. The beautiful views make it really worth it.
