This unique self guided trip will take you to some of the best spots around Girona and the Costa Brava. Where most mountain bike holidays stay in one area, we provide a complete different experience with this itinerary. You will see the scenery and trails change each day. From the dense forests to sandy dunes and cliffs right next to the Mediterranean. And as a bonus you will visit and sleep in medieval villages like Girona, Pals and the old fishing villages of Sant Feliu and Calella de Palafrugell
It can be customized according to your needs.

The regular tour starts in Girona, but you can also start from other locations. As soon as you leave Girona you will enter the Gavarres. This long stretched forest runs all the way from Girona to the coast. The first day you will ride from Girona to the coast, crossing both the Gavarres and the Cadiretes massif. You will be staying in a beautiful hotel near the beach promenade where you can enjoy a well deserved beer. The second day you will leave the coast behind and enter the Gavarres again. You will notice the difference: this side of the Gavarres is dryer and has more white sand. Halfway the day you’ll reach the medieval church of Santa Coloma de Fitor, where you can have a drink. After the drink you’ll descent towards Calella de Palafrugell. This gem of a village offers great photo opportunities. The third day starts with awesome views and a cliff ride just right next to the Mediterranean. After this scenic section you will follow the trails towards Begur and Pals, 2 little villages with small cobbled streets. You end your third day in the village of Torroella de Montgrí. The 4th day depends on your chosen itinerary. Either you do a round loop in the natural park between L’Estartit and L’Escala, following flowy dune trails or you already head back to Girona. On the final day you’ll ride the flat gravel paths from Torroella de Montgrí all the way to Monells. In Monells you can have your last shot of coffee before the start of a long climb into the Gavarres. After this climb you reach one of the highest points in the region which has a magnificent view of the forest and coastline in the far distance. From here your last long descent starts into the old town of Girona.


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!
