There is plenty to see and to do in this magic historical city. Spend 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.
Stage 1: Girona - St Feliu de Guíxols (45 Km 400m+)
After the delivery of the necessary documentation and bike fitting (if bikes are contracted) the first bike ride takes you straight to the Mediterranean Sea. This section follows the greenway “El Carrilet”, passing through the towns of Quart, Cassà de la Selva, Santa Cristina d’Aro and Llagostera. Right outside of Girona, the route follows the Onyar river, which gives us one of the most picturesque and most photographed images: the colored houses of Onyar river. Along the route we always have the Gavarres Massif as a backdrop, a mountainous forest area, consisting mainly of oaks, important for the cork production. We arrive in San Feliu de Guíxols, in front of the Mediterranean Sea.
Stage 2: St Feliu de Guíxols - Calella de Palafrugell (30 Km 271m+)
Today you’ll ride North along the coast visiting the main port town Palamós. After a few kilometers you’ll pass the unspoilt cove Platja de Castell, with its Iberian settlement, before arriving in the picturesque old fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, one of the pearls of Costa Brava. On the last section you’ll cycle along the greenway called “Ruta del Tren Petit”, connecting Palamós and Palafrugell, this last one with its amazing beaches and coves on the coast.
Stage 3: Calella de Palafrugell - Torroella de Montgrí (29 Km 180m+)
Route towards the north, visiting places of outstanding interest: Pals, with its beautifully conserved medieval centre, Palau- Sator and Gualta, reaching at the end to Torroella de Montgrí with its magnificent castle on the top of the mountain. The bike tour ends at the foot of the castle Montgri Massif, right at the middle of the Natural Park.
The ride gives you an alternative route that will take you through natural wetlands with extensive rice fields and long sandy beaches.
Stage 4: Torroella de Montgrí – Girona (27km 177m+ or 34km)

Here you can visit the Casa-castell of Gala Dalí Museum. Finishing in Flaçà where you take the train to Girona, on a 15 minutes ride.
