Tour description

Bike tour along the Girona Greenways, divided in shorter rides to make an ideal trip for families with children.

The tour is plenty of different pretty spots to discover with the kids such as volcanic areas, forests and river marshes. In Girona there is plenty to see and do, such as visiting the Cathedral or the ancient Jewish Quarter, one of the best-preserved in the world.

The last section of the greenway drives you to the coast, reaching the Mediterranean Sea. The ride is easy, downhill, and fun and you’ll be passing through cropland and forests. You can spend the rest of the last day relaxing and enjoying a day at the beach.

Depending on the children’s ages and fitness, even the smallest ones from 5 years can accomplish this ride. The accommodation is handpicked and you are going to stay in quiet and lovely little hotels and farmhouses, some of them with swimming pool.

Daily program

Day 1: Individual arrival to Olot
Optional private transfer from Girona to Olot is possible. Olot is known for being the most singular volcano landscape in the Iberian Peninsula, with about 40 dormant volcanoes. You can also walk through La Fageda d’en Jordà, a beech wood, well-known for its beauty.
Overnight in Olot

Day 2: Olot – Les Planes d’Hostoles (14 miles/22 km)
After the delivery of the necessary documentation and bike fitting, you start your day's route following the cycle path along the old narrow gauge railway line “Carrilet d’Olot.” You reach les Planes d’Hostoles, passing the fantastic area of the Bas Valley with its gorgeous countryside and typical villages also called the Catalan Switzerland. Once in les Planes, take your time to enjoy the gorges next to the river.

Day 3: Les Planes d’Hostoles – Girona (22 miles/35 km)
The ride today through the countryside is fun. The ride is quite long but is mainly downhill and flat. You’ll cycle along the Ter River, one of the most important rivers of Catalonia, getting to know its fantastic cultural heritage unchanged through the years. You arrive at Girona, where you can spend the rest of the day visiting the Cathedral which has the broadest single nave of Gothic architecture in the world.
