This unique trip will take you from the Spanish Pyrenees all the way to the absolute highlight of this trip: riding in the national park of Cap the Creus. Where most mountain bike holidays stay in one area, we provide a complete different experience with this itinerary. This truly unique and enchanting environment will create memories which last a lifetime.
It can be customized according to your needs.
We will start in the Berguedà region for a few days riding in the middle Pyrenees. Astonishing views of snow capped mountains and various trails are awaiting us. Our shuttle will take us to the starting points. For the last day we will drive to our start at the coast: the middle of the national park of Cap de Creus. We finish the trip with a beautiful & unique coastal ride in the national park of Cap de Creus, where we spend the full day exploring this hidden gem.
Thijs and his local guide Felix had excellent knowledge of the local terrain in both the mountains of Catalunya and along Cap de Creus and led us to the best local trails. A very professional and genuinely helpful guide, who is also an excellent biker and a good guy who is fun to spend time with. We will definitely work with mtbAdventures again in the future!D.

“Cingles” in Catalan means cliffs. The town of Vallcebre is at 1100 m high and is surrounded by limestone “cingles”. The trails were made to get into the coal mines, and also to exchange goods with neighboring towns.
It´s a perfect place for mtb, from rock gardens to open rocky trails with no steep slopes and there are many options for all kinds of levels.
We have a lunch break in a place with a panoramic view.
Day 3: Serra del Catllaràs

Catllaràs is one of the wildest places in Catalonia, a natural protected area, with a rich fauna and flora. We start riding in the north face on a dirt road, and we reach 1700 m high. After that, we descend on a trail and end right in front of the hut, for the lunch break. There is also an ancient Romanesque church close to the hut. After a short siesta, we climb 500 m to collada Sant Miquel and we descend 1000 m connecting many trails to our hotel.
Day 4: Cerdanya
D+ : 850
D- : 850
Today we will take it easy. We cross Cadí Tunnel to visit Cerdanya county, located in the high Pyrenees in the north. We start riding up a truly alpine dirt route, and descending on different trails, the last one is around 7 km long.

You will be in for a treat! This day will be completely different than the other days. We’re now in the rough and desolated terrain of Cap de Creus.
