In this delightful corner of northern Catalonia, Pyrenean peaks give way to wooded, volcanic hills and they, in turn, lead down to the valley floor – one of the most fertile spots in Catalonia. Here, beneath jagged ridges and the iconic outline of Santa Magdalena, begins a wonderful journey all the way to the Costa Brava, via the fascinating and historic city of Girona.Starting in the picturesque hamlet of Joanetes, this gentle cycling holiday explores a culturally rich yet remote-feeling corner of Catalonia which is blessed by a truly Mediterranean climate. You stay in splendidly varied accommodation, and the landscapes you experience are just as diverse. The route is mainly along traffic-free vía verde (dedicated cycle paths) and includes a lovely ride between allotments and market gardens that takes you into the very centre of Girona – a wonderful and often-overlooked city you won’t want to leave. But leave you must (after a full day to explore the sights and ancient city walls) as your final day’s ride is a fitting finale: back on the vía verde, you cruise through corn fields before the sparkling Mediterranean sea suddenly appears before you, as if by magic!
