15 de May de 2024

The Costa Brava, with its picturesque landscapes, rugged coastline, and Mediterranean charm, has captivated visitors for decades. However, there is a way to experience this Catalan gem in a unique and rewarding way: cycle tourism. This type of tourism is gaining popularity worldwide, and the Costa Brava offers the perfect setting for two-wheeled enthusiasts. From its coastal routes to its medieval villages, there is something magical about exploring this region by bike.

More than just a trend

Cycle tourism is not just a passing trend; it is a way of travelling rooted in the pursuit of adventure, connection with nature, and cultural exploration. More and more people are choosing this active and sustainable approach to discover new and familiar destinations. And the Costa Brava, with its temperate climate, well-maintained road network, and varied topography, is a paradise for cycle tourists.

Exploring the Costa Brava by bike

What makes the Costa Brava so special for cycle tourists? The answer lies in its diversity. From coastal routes with stunning views of the Mediterranean to rural roads winding through lush vineyards and olive groves, there is something for every taste and ability.

One of the most popular routes is the Vies Verdes, which follows the old railway line between Olot and Girona. This 125-kilometre route, with 9 different itineraries, passes through picturesque valleys, charming villages and lush forests, offering a peaceful and relaxing experience for cyclists of all ages. Vies Verdes has also launched a new itinerary planning tool, which allows users to visualise the entire network of routes in the Girona region that can be covered on foot or by bicycle, plan day trips or multi-day itineraries, and obtain all the information they need to organise their trips.

For those looking for a more challenging ride, the coastal road between Tossa de Mar and Sant Feliu de Guíxols offers a scenic route with climbs and bends that will test the legs and hearts of the most intrepid cyclists. But the reward is the breathtaking views of sheer cliffs and crystal-clear waters that make every pedal stroke worthwhile.
