To finish, there is a final gentle descent to sea level and your home for the next three nights, the decadent 5-star Hostal de la Gavina.

This evening, relax and savor authentic Catalan cuisine with a twist at the hotel’s gourmet restaurant Candlelight.

Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 1 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van.

Type 3 Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer.

How to Get There

Barcelona (BCN)

Girona Train Station, Girona, Spain

Say Farewell

Barcelona (BCN)
12:30 PM
Barcelona Sants Train Station, Barcelona, Spain


We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start of your Costa Brava bike tour, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into Barcelona (BCN) and then take a train to Girona. From Terminal 1, buses depart every 30 minutes for Barcelona Estació Sants. Outside Terminal 2, trains depart directly for Barcelona Estació Sants. Alternatively, taxis are plentiful from both terminals and operate 24 hours a day. The journey to the train station in the city center will take 20-30 minutes and cost around 35 euros. From Barcelona Estació Sants and Estació de França, trains depart hourly for Girona. For more information, consult www.renfe.com.

Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at the Girona Train Station (Pl. Espanya, s/n, 17004, Girona) at 11:00 AM on the first day of the Costa Brava bike tour. You'll shuttle 45 minutes to the Empordà countryside for a gourmet lunch. Please have your first-day cycling clothes and riding gear easily accessible, separate from your luggage. After lunch, your guides will do a bike fit before you begin your day’s ride through the Empordà countryside.

If you will be late for the pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip starts with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call our first hotel, Mas de Torrent (+34 972 303 292), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details. A taxi from the Girona train station to the ride start or first hotel will take about 45 minutes and cost around 60 euros.

Planning For Your Trip

Packing and Weather

The springtime brings greener hills, with pleasant daytime temperatures (70-80 degrees Fahrenheit) and evening temperatures drop 10-15 degrees cooler. The fall is drier and warmer with daytime temperatures reaching the mid 80s. Costa Brava's northern location means that it can be hit with the odd cold spell or rain shower. Light layers and a waterproof shell are recommended for this bike tour. Packing List

Before and After Your Trip


Before: Girona, Spain

Girona has long enjoyed the reputation for being the richest town in Spain. Founded in the first century BC, it soon became the most important point on the Spanish Via Augusta. Enjoy the reflections of the colorful pastel row houses on the River Onyar before crossing the river and wandering the narrow cobblestone streets of the medieval Jewish quarter. Admire the cathedral from below and then enjoy a 15- minute walk atop the old town walls to get great views of the town. Search out our favourite cafe, La Fabrica in the old quarter, where local and professional cyclists training in Girona sometimes stop for coffee. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:


After: Barcelona, Spain

The Catalonian capital of Barcelona boasts a beautiful coastline; a great diversity of culture, leisure, and shopping; creative, innovative gastronomy; and an avant-garde spirit. Be sure to check out some of the fantastic architecture and art of Antonio Gaudí, such as Sagrada Familia or Parc Guell. The Gothic quarter is the heart of Barcelona’s old town, with narrow cobblestone streets on which Picasso and Miró lived long ago. Las Ramblas is a long tree-lined shoppers’ paradise that leads to the sea. Be sure not to miss the fascinating Boqueria market for a slice of local life. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:
