Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival

We meet you at Girona Airport or Flaca Station (if arriving from Barcelona) and take you to the mountain town of Ripoll famous for its Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria. You will spend the first night at the comfortable La Sequia Molinar Hotel with beautiful modern designed rooms, friendly staff and free Wi Fi. Welcome drink in the bar, tour orientation, maps, bike fitting and dinner booked in the hotel’s restaurant.

Day 2: Ripoll to La Rectoria ,Sant Miguel de Pineda

Level: Moderate

Distance: 55 km

This morning you are ready to set off on your 190km journey from the mountains to the sea. The first section follows the old carrilet railway originally used to bring ore and coal down from the mines in Ogassa. The route takes you up through the valley to the town of Sant Joan de les Abadesse where you can stop for a leisurely lunch. Onwards now to Olot which lies within the protected area of the Natural Park of the Volcanic area of the Garrotxa.The route continues down the old railway south of Olot to just north of Sant Feliu de Palleros.

You arrive at La Rectoria, a beautifully restored rectory adjacent to the Vias Verdes cycle path. Roy and Goretti will assure you of a warm welcome. Roy was previously a chef at the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh and Goretti was a whisky taster at Glenmorangie so after they prepare you a delicious meal you may even get to sample a wee dram!!

Day 3: La Valle d'En Bas

Level: Easy to Moderate

Distance: 41km

Today you will explore the volcanic region of La Vall D’En Bas. This is a lovely circular route. Make time to stop in a couple of the rustic Pyrenees medieval villages where you feel you have stepped back in time. The route offers some amazing scenery, rugged landscapes and rivers. Head back to La Rectoria late afternoon for a second evening of fine dining.

Day 4: Sant Feliu de Pallerois to Girona

Level: Easy to Moderate

Distance: 32km

This morning you pick up the narrow-gauge railway route which descends smoothly from Sant Feliu de Pallerois to Girona . The trail is in very good condition and has been fitted with new bridges, railings and signs. It crosses through magnificent scenery of great ecological and cultural value. It continues through the Garrotxa and reaches the Ter valley and on to the pasturelands of Salt and Girona. Tonight will be spent in the Hotel Llegendes situated in the old town (the Jewish Quarter) of Girona near the magnificent Gothic Cathedral and a few minutes walk from some lively tapas bars and restaurants.

Day 5: Girona to the coast

Level: Easy

Distance: 43km

After leaving Girona the trail crosses the Selva depression, characterised by a patchwork of croplands and forests. On a clear day you can enjoy a panoramic view of the eastern Pyrenees before crossing the Ridaura valley and skirting the edge of the Gavarres an area covered in unspoilt forest. The route runs gently down to Castell d’Aro then on to the fishing town of Palamos where you will stay for the next two nights’ in the Hotel Trias beautifully decorated in a colonial style overlooking the beach and the port. Dinner will be served in the Hotel.

Day 6: The Beach/Coastal Paths

My girlfriend and I did the 6 day self guided Mountains to the Sea tour in September this year. We had a fantastic time on the route that Alan and Vivien laid out for us travelling from the picturesque foothills of the Pyrenees through the beautiful Catalan countryside all the way to the relaxing seaside town of Palamos via the historical city of Girona and its architectural delights. Also along the route was the wonderful La Rectoria guesthouse and gourmet restaurant. Definitely worth a trip back to in its own right. Overall the holiday was a fantastic balance of activity and relaxation and of course the weather was great too. Alan was very helpful and accessible along the way to point us in the right direction and offered great advice of things to do and see as well as places to eat and drink along the way (Cheers Alan). Cycle Catalan comes highly recommended.
