The Costa Brava is a beautiful stretch of coast and this area has a rich medieval history, beautiful scenery and a great artistic heritage.

It has been voted one of the “Best of the World Destinations 2012” by National Geographic Traveler Magazine and deservedly so. Beaches, natural areas, precious towns, castles and churches.

Discover small medieval villages such as Peretallada, Torroella de Montgrí and ride through one of the most beautiful landscapes of Catalonia. Empordà is full of culture, history and natural diversity.

Itinerary:

Day 1. Arrival to Can Muní Farmhouse

Welcome meeting with our guides and session to explain all the route and the week planning. We’ll hold the orientation session, where your bike will be specially fitted for you and you’ll be presented with all the documentation and things you need for your trip.

Day 2. To Figueres – Distance: 46 Km.

This day leads you to Figueres, across crops and forest. On your trip you will find small towns that preserve typical catalan romanesque and medieval architecture until reaching Dalí’s village, Figueres. You can spend your time gvisiting his Museum or just taking a walk around the city, before going back to Can Muní.

Day 3. Land of the marshes – Distance: 56 Km.

Quiet and full of natural beauty path which is the final stretch of the River Ter. In Fonollera beach, the river forms a lagoon and then enters fully into the sea, in front of the Medes Islands. Riding your bike through the natural spaces of La Gola del Ter, La Platera or El Ter Vell will give you a view of the coastal plant life and the fauna of maritime-land areas.

Day 4. A mosaic countryside – Distance: 28 Km.

The entire route goes through a countryside that combines fields of crops, which sinuously cut into the clearings of Mediterranean woods, with small scattered human settlements, that are integrated into the territory. In short, it is a mosaic countryside.

Day 5. Between the land and the sea – Distance: 40 Km.

For many centuries, the Empordà coast was subject to attacks by pirates and the population was centred more inland, in walled villages or in fortified farmhouses with defence towers. From the 18th century, the danger started to become less and maritime neighbourhoods started to appear. These maritime hamlets have been transformed by tourism and have become important tourist centres. The route will therefore take you from the coast inland, so that you will see the contrasts in the countryside between the land and the sea.

Day 6. Medieval villages – Distance: 48 Km.

El Baix Empordà region is a territory that in the 8th century was part of the “march” of the Carolingian empire against the Muslims, the so-called Catalunya Vella (Old Catalonia). Therefore, it is logical that medieval architecture should be very important in the villages of the region, particularly inland. This route follows part of the medieval villages that are most representative of El Baix Empordà, Ullastret and Peretallada.

Day 7. Bye Bye! – Bye bye and see you soon!
