PYRENEES ESCAPE - 4 day

Escape with us through the coastal Pyrenees with this 4-day tour.

Our Pyrenees experience showcases the best of the Pyrenees on a 3-day expedition from Girona. Starting in Girona, we'll take you through the beautiful rolling roads and plains of the Empordà before ascending to St Pere de Rodes, crossing the coast into France and venturing between the villages of the lower Pyrenees.

This route has it all, from the fields of the Empordà, the wide coastal roads, the breathtaking climbs of the Pyrenees and the beauty of the Garrotxa National Park. With a total elevation gain of 8000m, be sure to bring your climbing gear for this adventure.

This trip is best enjoyed at any time of the year, except July and August when the summer is at its most intense.

An upgrade to luxury accommodation is also available.

Is this tour for me?

The Pyrenees Escape by road from Girona is a tour designed for people who like to ride and enjoy beautiful days on the bike.

On our supported tours we like to keep everyone together on the flats and save energy for the key climbs of the day. We invite participants to ride at their own pace up each climb and regroup at the top.

Above all, we are flexible. Our detailed knowledge of the area allows our team of guides to adapt to your group: sometimes clients want to go further and look for more challenges and sometimes they want to slow things down. Just tell your guides how you feel and they will do the rest to make sure you have the best possible time on your trip.

If you need a break, the support vehicle is never far away.

The Dali Museum is a short train ride away in Figueres and the Catalan capital of Barcelona is just 40 minutes by train. Or relax at the Roman spa in Girona. We will work with non-cyclists before the trip to create your perfect holiday itinerary.
