This Medieval villages cycling tour is a perfect way to explore the quieter and less traveled areas of this fascinating region of Catalonia.
The tour starts in Girona city and winds its way gently through the undulating and ever-changing scenery of the Baix Emporda. All of the cycling takes place on quiet country roads that are part of the Baix Emporda Cycle Network. The network has been developed to allow cyclists to fully enjoy the splendors of this area.
The tour follows the cycling network for 5 nights and finishes in the charming medieval village of Monells. Your luggage will be transported for you from hotel to hotel so you can relax and enjoy the cycling to its fullest. The accommodation provided is 2-, 3-, and 4-star hotels, including breakfast with your stay. Hotels are dependent upon availability.
Each day’s ride is approximately 25 miles/40 km and covers terrain that is mostly flat with rolling hills, so you can pace yourself to stop and enjoy the views.

These rides range from 12-25 miles/20-40 km, so if you have enough energy to see a little more then each area is well worth exploring. You will be provided with detailed maps and route plans to help you on your way.
