Trip Itinerary

Arrival day
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.
Stage 1: Olot – Les Planes d’Hostoles (22 Km)
After the delivery of the necessary documentation and bike fitting (if bikes are contracted) you start the 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.
Stage 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.
Stage 3: Girona – Campllong /Llagostera (18 Km or 21 Km)
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.
Stage 4: Campllong - Sant Feliu de Guíxols (30 Km or 26 Km)
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 its monastery. You can enjoy the rest of the day at the beach.
Departure day
Departure from Sant Feliu de Guíxols after breakfast.

Great place to rent a bike in Girona! Located close to the centre which makes it easy to get there. Online booking was very convenient and bike was in great condition. Staff was super welcoming, friendly and helpful. I would definitively rent bikes again!

Excellent and highly recommended bike rental place in the heart of Girona. Close to the centre so probably close to anywhere you'd stay if you were staying centrally.Bike was lovely (BMC TeamMachine SLR01). Full di2, disc brakes, 12 speed, carbon rims, etc. Lovely and fast on the flat and rolling. Great immediate braking on the long or technical descents. Not bad at climbing either and very well priced compared to other bike rentals I've done.Staff were very friendly and helpful and communication when required was quick and effective. I'd arranged to pick up the bike on the day after arriving but managed to pick it up last thing the day before after contacting them. Pick up was quick and simple. Bike fit was easy on a rig in the shop. Di2 charging cable provided and I was ready within 20 minutes. Returning was equally quick and easy. Would definitely use again if I'm in the area. Highly recommended.

Simply excellent. Good quality bikes which required no maintenance. The GPX routes were accurate, challenging enough and fun. Our hotels were amazing with friendly staff and all luggage transports were timely. Great company to deal with :-).

We loved renting our bikes and taking a self guided tour through cycleTours Catalonia. The team was very kind and knowledgeable about the area. They took the time to walk us through all the routes. They were also super responsive when we called them for help. Additionally, the gravel bikes we rented were great, we were apprehensive to rent because we love our own bikes but we ended up being very happy with them. Would highly recommend!

Had a great 4 day trip with a self guided tour from Catalonia Bike tours. The bike was perfect, top of the line and worked flawless.The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. They preloaded GPS routes that were accurate and hit the highlights of Girona surrounding area.They arranged hotel bed and breakfast which suited us and was very convenient to the town. I would highly recommend this company and hopefully return in the future.

I have hired a road bike from CycleTours Catalonia twice now and each time they have delivered. Efficient friendly service, great value for money and recommendations for local routes if you need them. This time I went for a BMC Team Machine SLR Two, which was super light and speedy and in great condition. The online booking engine is simple to use. See you next time!

I had a last minute change of plans so dropped by the shop the night before bike collection day. The staff were super friendly and very helpful, providing some route plans and asking if I wanted to take the bike early. Overall I had a great experience riding around Girono fantastic roads and beautiful scenery, I did get a couple flats which were due to an issue with the wheel rim but the bike overall was well maintained.Would definitely use this shop again next time I’m in town.

The service and bike hire were both amazing and flawless. I picked up the bike and was greeted by a friendly mechanic who made the adjustments to the bike fit I wanted and I was on my way to riding. Returning the bike was also pleasurable and easy. I would easily recommend Cycletours Catalonia to anyone in need of a rental or bike tour.

Fantastic bike rental company!I have hired bikes from lots of different companies in lots of different locations and have never received this level of service. Everyone I talked to was friendly and extremely helpful. They also were able to help me out even though I completely messed up my booking.The bike I rented was very well specced, in amazing condition and had no issues at all. And the price was great and included a cycle bag with items to repair any problems I may have had.I will 100% use them the next time I'm in Girona and would highly recommend them to anyone.

My husband and I did a 5 day self directed bike tour of Costa Brava. It was incredible. The gravel bikes were in great condition. I rented the ebike. It worked very well for me and Paul loved his BMC gravel. The hotel accommodations were first class and the breakfasts included were varied and delicious. We absolutely love the coffee wine and food in Costa Brava. Our tour took us on greenways, less travelled roads, coastal visas, farmers fields and walled villages. We absolutely loved everything. Manel and staff were exceptional and very responsive to our needs. Thank you for a lifetime experience we will alway remember !

They can’t do more to help! Great bike selection, and advice, including booking a taxi to our start point in Vic. Our late return, gone 6 when they close, was not a problem, even our filthy bikes were immediately washed and all for a great price.

We did the 7 day self-guided tour of Emporda on road bikes and it suited us perfectly. The bikes were new and in great shape. The route was very well chosen, little traffic, great variety and some fine passes. The hotels were of a very high standard, and the staff remarkably friendly. What more can I say!
