Day 2: Mini-Whistler

We will go ride to our mini-Whistler. This location is a dream for any enduro rider. It is not strange to find an Enduro World Series team preparing the season here. First time we didn’t know who worked on the trails but we give thanks to them. This is a magic place, sometimes you won’t believe what you are seeing. It reminds the scenery of the “Planet of the Apes” film. The mountain is full of young pine trees and enormous round rocks that sometimes you will ride around and some others you must ride over.

Ancient vineyard terraces rounded by the past of time will make you wonder “what’s doing a pump track in the middle of the forest?”. About 21 trails with a name and some others unnamed. Uphills are mild and descents are not steep enough to be difficult but easy is not the word. The word is fun. A good place to start your enduro mtb holidays and setting up your bike and your soul.

Day 3: Costa Brava

Trails over the sea. You will be smelling the salt and watching one of the best Costa Brava landscapes in a 20km round area with no population. This is the biggest almost virgin coastal area of Catalonia. Most of the trails were built by charcoal manufacturers long time ago and now became a technical single-track with Moab-style slick rock passes starring the routes.

During the rides you will see several ancient monasteries and churches and you could figure that such a remote place was full of history and not so lonely in the past.

Day 4: Montseny Natural Park

We’ll drive 30’ to Arbucies, a town located at the foot of the Natural Park of Montseny. There we’ll get a uphill very long but smoothie, with really nice views in a nice forest of old chestnut trees, ferns and moist soil. Once we reach the top we’ll ride some funny and long natural singletracks, with flowy and technical parts.

This route is 37km with 1560m of slope. We can add some more singletrack if you want to do more kilometers.

Day 5: Cap de Creus Natural Park

We ride across the virgin landscapes of Cap de Creus Natural Reserve, where the Pyrenees gets into the sea. Coastside charming villages like Port de la Selva and Cadaques, a beautiful fisher’s town, hometown of surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, will open the way to the wilderness of the rock modeled by the wind and the sea in an out-of-the-world panorama that inspired his paintings.

With landscapes totally different from the other days, we’ll ride in small rocky mountains with  bushes, pines and cork oaks. 

 Very complete ride in which we will do a bit of everything, tracks, paths, singletracks and a bit of asphalt. Rocky slopes and technical climbing paths. We will find a downhill with privileged views and some of the singletracks are very fun. You cannot forget this day.

55 km with 1270 m of positive slope

 

Day 6: Rupit
Girona mountainbike holidays

Route along Cantonigròs, Rupit and Santuari del Far. 

Fantastic panoramic route with large cliffs, we will pass through emblematic medieval villages. Good view of the Susqueda swamp and, a few meters away from the descent, a magnificent view of Salt de Sallent waterfall. Mixing singletracks (some technicals) and path.
