Trails and planning

Day 1 - Guided mountainbike route from the summit to Girona

From Olot to Girona.

We will start this traverse in the volcany area of Olot at the base of pre-Pyrenees.

We will pick you at the airport and drive to your first hotel in the surroundings of the city of Olot.

Starting with a 5km +400m uphill to get a proper warm up and once at the top you will never leave singletrack during next 60 kilometers. Descent across the crests with round rocky spots. Incredible views of the Volcany area and surroundings. Again in the valley uphills and descents will be not so long. You will merge with the forest and your bike. During the first stage we will find some springs and ponds good enough to take a splash in summer, ancient churches and small populated areas in contrast with the vast forest singletrack.

First night in a confortable hotel for bikers in the interesting city of Girona. VIEW IMAGES.

Day 2 - Guided mountainbike route from Girona to Costa Brava

From Girona to Palamós.

We are now in a different kind of terrain leaving continental forest and entering into a tipical mediterranian vegetation. Charcoal and cork manufacture are the main traditional activities of this natural area. We will face the way to the coastline riding de mountain massif of Gavarres, a 246.000 Ha area of natural protected forest almost inhabited. This will be not so challenging both physical and technical like previous rides. At the middle of the ride we will make a mandatory stop to delight the best Catalan country gastronomy.

After that well will start sighting the sea at the horizon on each summit. Last descent will drive us to the port city of Palamós, a good place to taste the best shrimps of the Mediterranian as an unbeatable final of the Traverse. VIEW IMAGES.
