Costa Brava

Charms of Eternal Spring

The Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees Mountains heighten your senses as you pedal along the jagged Catalan coastline. Here among the winding creeks and rocky capes, spring reigns eternal: never too hot or too cold. The Costa Brava offers many visual delights, including its small fishing villages, greening extinct volcanoes and Roman architectural heritage, as well as the creative works of Dali and the professional training sites of Girona – where cycling routes cling to cliff sides. As a bonus, enjoy Barcelona and its friendly hosts. Rated both a 3+ and a 5 (with the addition of a few mountain passes and daily kilometres), the itinerary gives you the latitude to explore the joys of biking at your pace.
