Catalan Coast & Villages

Hotel & Bike 5 nights

VISITING: Spain

Why we love this tour

"Staying in two charming locally run hotels, you can choose either a 5 night or 7 night itinerary. It's a good idea to plan a late flight home, giving you time to visit the Dali Museum in Figueres on your last day."

Monasteries and Gothic churches, Greek & Roman ruins and medieval towns

Golden beaches, green olive groves, sparkling rivers and the Pyrenees

Pink flamingos and black storks, red wines and rich Catalan stews

Cycling based in two properties with optional rest days by the beach or pool

Experience Catalonia, where everything from the language to the landscape is distinctly different to the rest of Spain. A truly diverse region, you’ll pedal past sandy stretches and craggy coasts, green mountains and sheltered forests. Follow easy-going cycle tracks, you can pick a five or seven night escape and choose to arrive in the medieval city of Girona, the Catalan capital of Barcelona or Salvador Dali’s birthplace of Figueres.

As you tour through sleepy hamlets and medieval towns, stop off to try regional red wines and the local staple of bread rubbed with tomatoes, sprinkled with salt and drizzled with olive oil. You’ll ride through typical Catalan countryside, passing vineyards, orchards and olive groves with a backdrop of the Pyrenees. The golden beaches on Catalonia’s wild coast are ideal for a rest day and nature fans can spot pink flamingos and black storks in Aiguamolls Nature Reserve.
