Trip Itinerary

Bike tour along the Girona Greenways, divided in shorter rides to make an ideal trip for families with children.

Day 0: Arrival at Girona
Optional arrival in Girona and transfer to Olot. Olot is known for being the most singular volcano landscape in the Iberian Peninsula, with about 40 dormant volcanoes. You can also walk through La Fageda d’en Jordà, a beech wood, well-known for its beauty.
Day 1: Olot – Les Planes d’Hostoles (22 km)
After the delivery of the necessary documentation and bike fitting (if bikes contracted) you start your day route following the cycle path along the old narrow gauge railway line “Carrilet d’Olot”. You reach les Planes d’Hostoles, passing the fantastic area of the Bas Valley with its gorgeous countryside and typical villages, also called the Catalan Switzerland. Once in les Planes, take your time to enjoy the gorges next to the river.
Day 2: Les Planes d’Hostoles – Girona (35 km)
The ride is downhill and fun, through the countryside. The ride is quite long but is mainly downhill and flat. You’ll cycle following the Ter River, one of the most important rivers of Catalonia, getting to know its fantastic cultural heritage, left among the years. You arrive at Girona, where you can spend the rest of the day visiting the Cathedral, which has the broadest single nave of Gothic architecture in the world and getting lost through the narrow streets of the ancient Jewish quarter, one of the best preserved in the world. We also recommend a stroll along the Rambla or the medieval walls, which gives you a fantastic panoramic view of the city.
Day 3: Girona – Campllong /Llagostera (18 km / 21km)
You pass the village of Quart, well-known for its ceramics, and Cassà de la Selva, with beautiful modernist houses in the centre of the town. You can spend the afternoon having a good time with the animals in the farms nearby the accommodation.
Day 4: Campllong - Sant Feliu de Guíxols (30 km / 18km)
The last stage is the longest, but also flattest and easy to cycle. A fun downhill takes you to the town of Sant Feliu de Guíxols, with its magnificent fishing port and cultural interest, especially for its monastery. You can enjoy the rest of the day at the beaches.
