Holiday Information

This self-guided cycling holiday takes you from the volcanoes of the Spanish Garrotxa Natural Park to the beautiful Costa Brava. Following part of the old Narrow-Gauge Railway Route, plenty of the route is on relaxing traffic-free cyclepaths with plenty of interesting stops along the way. La Garrotxa Volcanic Area Nature Reserve is a great place to cycle with a rich and varied vegetation, and combined with medieval cities and spanish hospitality, this is the perfect summer holiday adventure. 
Our place to place journey starts in Olot where we can explore the town and its surroundings. From here you'll be riding on cycle paths and country lanes, spending your days discovering the beech forests and craters of this stunning natural park. You'll then head off towards the lovely Girona where you have a free day to explore its magnificent cathedral and its atmospheric cobbled streets.
You'll finish the week with a night on the rugged Costa Brava. You'll cycle towards the coast from Girona, through the Selva depression and the Ridaura Valley, finishing up in the upmarket seaside resort of s'Agaro. You'll spend the evening in a beach side hotel, the perfect place to sip your sunset sangria!
Just contact us with your preferred dates and we can check availability for you.

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

Graded as a gentle trip, this trip is predominantly on traffic-free cyclepaths known as Greenways or Vias Verdes. You will encounter a little traffic when cycling in and out of the towns so care will need to be taken and it is useful if your family have some experience of cycling on quiet roads. Most of the cycling is relatively flat and even slightly downhill with just a few small hills and undulating sections on the final day as you reach the coast. Emergency backup is available from the local team, but it’s best if you‘re happy and comfortable fixing common issues like punctures.
