Just finished our 6 night 7 day walking tour - Between the Land and the Sea. This experience far exceeded our expectations. My friend and I hadn’t been to Spain for 30 years - since our college backpacking days. We read about Cycle Catalan through Rosy’s Responsible Travel. From the moment I emailed Vivian inquiring about the walking tour, I knew this was the trip for us! Vivian is amazing - so accommodating, informative, and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. The “Between Land and Sea” walking tour was such a fun adventure. It was easy to follow the maps and the distance between locations was perfect. It allowed us to get exercise, but still have enough time to enjoy the scenery, go for a swim in the sea, and explore the adorable villages along the way. My friend and I can’t say enough about this trip and the hospitality and professionalism Cycle Catalan showed us. We will be returning next year with our husbands!!!!!! Thanks a million Vivian!

Just back from the ideal holiday, lots of good food and drink, good accommodation, great weather and courtesy of cycling, no weight gain. Alan is a great guide and his choices of places etc is faultless, as first time bike riders in our early 60's we found the Catalan route from Figueres to Palamos both challenging and very enjoyable. Rice fields, pomegranate trees, a dead cat, wine tasting and a jam museum all part of the fun and some late summer sun.
Recommended.

Just finished a 4 day tour with my wife. Couldn't have been better. Outstanding accommodations - amazing food, and wonderful riding in the Catalonian countryside and coast. Our guide (Jordi) knew so much about the area just chatting with him was worth the trip. He even coordinated a rental car for a few days up the Costa Brava when we were finessed. And then there was so much more. Thanks to the whole crew. If you're considering it, just go. Amazing experience.

Stride Review

For almost a decade, Cycle Catalan has offered unique itineraries for seeing the Catalonia regions in northeastern Spain.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They craft itineraries for cycling and walking tours throughout the beautiful nature and towns of Catalonia. Apart from small group guided cycling tours, they also are well known for providing self-guided and independent cycle options. Group tours have a max of 20 people and minimum of 8. Multiple types of package are available, catering to all different types of traveler, but they all encompass the warmth of Catalonian culture.

Who Travels With Them?

Their cycling trips are well suited to active travelers. Most itineraries are not strenuous and are enjoyed by older travelers as well as young and middle aged. They can and do accommodate singles, couples, and small groups. Private group options are also available.

Where Do They Operate?

Trips are centered in the Catalonia region of northeast Spain. This encompasses Barcelona, as well as a number of small towns, both of which exhibit the same vibrant culture, unique cuisine, and historic background.

Why Travel With Them?

Their motto is don't just be a tourist, be our guest". With this philosophy, they plan each itinerary to have a local and cultural feel from start to finish. They spend a lot of time in researching an area and making sure every detail is taken care of from hotels to restaurants. You can rest assured every route has been thoroughly ridden and checked before you travel! Prepare to learn about Catalonia, enjoy delicious food, be active, explore, and also have some leisure time to wander through markets and festivals. It’s the best way to see Catalonia for active travelers looking for a small group travel experience.
