Welcome to the first day of your Girona 3-day weekend self-guided bike tour! Your Trek Travel host will meet you at 11:00 AM at your cozy retreat in the heart of the historical center of Girona, awash in local cafes and small markets. Come dressed to ride as you leave your bags at the front desk and head out for your first day of cycling. We have three riding options available, with different mileage and elevation gain to suit every level. Just choose the ride that you prefer, then kick off your self-guided tour and hit the road at your own pace. No matter which ride you select, you will be delighted by the very quiet country roads once you are out of the city! This evening is yours to enjoy as you wish; explore the cobbled streets of Girona and find a restaurant that best suits your palate, choosing from our list of recommendations.

You'll climb on a quiet road through a dense forest reaching the sanctuary of Sant Grau in the heart of the Ardenya Cadiretes Massif. Take a break in this charming hamlet before descending to a winding road that follows the extraordinary Costa Brava coastline. Enjoy the rollercoaster effect on this road as you cruise along craggy red rock cliffs above the turquoise water of the Mediterranean sea. Pause by the sea for a lunch of your choice in Tossa before riding back to the hotel. If you prefer, extend your loop to Sant Feliu and Romanya de la Selva for a longer option with more climbing. For those wanting a more relaxed ride on quiet, country lanes we recommend the loop ride to the village of Púbol, where you can visit the Castell de Dalí, a gift from the Costa Brava-born artist Salvador Dalí to his wife, Gala.

Planning For Your Trip

Packing and Weather

The springtime brings green hills, with pleasant daytime temperatures (70F-80F) and evening temperatures 10-15 degrees cooler. The fall is drier and warmer with daytime temperatures reaching the mid 80s. Girona'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. Packing List

Before and After Your Trip

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.

The Gothic quarter is the heart of Barcelona’s old town, with narrow cobblestone streets on which Picasso and Miró lived long ago.
