Trails and planning

A mountain-bike holiday of 7 days/6 nights exploring the picturesque Girona region. These routes have been designed for you to enjoy and discover the best natural and man-build single-tracks of the area.

After introducing you to the charming town of Girona, perfect conditions for mountain-bike cycling practice, we guide you through first-rated areas of its local mountains that are replete with enthralling nature trails.

Day 1: Arrival in Girona & Tour Briefing

After being collected at the Airport, we take you to the hotel for a casual briefing and welcome evening meal in the town centre.

Are you ready to embark on an unforgettable MTB journey ?

Over the following days…

Day 2: Mini-Whistler

First stop is the Mini-Whistler – a dream location for any enduro rider and the very same spot where Enduro World Series team prepares their season and who we can thank for the well-prepared trails, nestled in the heart of the wilderness. Mountains covered in young pine trees and enormous rock formations making up unbelievably magical scenery, reminiscent of the “Planet of the Apes”.

The naturally worn ancient vineyard terraces will make you wonder, “what’s a pump track doing in the middle of the forest/here?”. About 21 trails named or unnamed composed of mild uphills and easily cruised descents – just the right level of challenging, allowing the chance to play around. A great place to begin your enduro MTB holidays and get you accustomed to your bike and equipment.

Day 3: Costa Brava

A chance to breathe in some fresh sea air and feast your eyes on some of the most spectacular landscapes of the Costa Brava. Spanning around 20km, this is one of the largest almost virgin coastal area of Catalonia. Most of the trails were built by charcoal manufacturers a long time ago and ever since have become single-tracks, each pass dotted with Moab-style slick rocks.

On these rides, you will encounter several ancient monasteries and churches in a region that is rich in history.

Day 4: Montseny Natural Park

We’ll drive 30’ to Arbucies, a town located at the foot of the Natural Park of Montseny, beginning with a smooth uphill climb offering wonderful views overlooking a forest replete of old chestnut trees, ferns and fresh soil. Once we reach the top, we’ll ride along some unusually formed natural single-tracks, made up of a mixture of flowing and technical sections.

This route is 37km with 1560m of slope. We also offer the option of adding more single-tracks, if you wish to explore more ground.

Day 5: Cap de Creus Natural Park

We ride across the virgin landscapes of Cap de Creus Natural Reserve, where the Pyrenees meets the sea. Charming coast-side villages such as, Port de la Selva and Cadaques, a beautiful fisher’s town and home of surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, who found much inspiration in the quirky wind-swept rock formations and stunning sea panoramas.

 A very complete ride offering a variety of tracks, paths and single-tracks, with just a tad of asphalt. Rocky slopes and technical climbing passes with landscapes quite different from the other days. A mixture of some very fun single-tracks and a route of small rocky mountains full of bushes, pines and cork oaks with a descent overlooking marvellous views. You will not 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.

Large cliffs and emblematic medieval villages make up this breath-taking panoramic route. Decent views of the Susqueda swamp and just a few meters away from the descent, a magnificent vista of the Salt de Sallent waterfall. A mix of single-tracks (some technical) and different passes.
