Spain: Catalonia

A Taste of Catalonia (Catalunya) Cycling

  • Explore the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Barcelona
  • Quiet country roads - perfect for first-timers or nervous cyclists
  • Wide sandy beaches, beautiful bays, traditional fishing ports, sun-drenched villages off the tourist trail
  • Excellent hotels, all with pools, including 14th century luxury castle
  • Lovely sea breeze, perfect cycling conditions - never too hot, even in high season
  • Pretty medieval villages to explore en route and on your rest days
  • Based on our popular 6 night, Contrasts of Catalunya Cycling

Catalonia (Catalunya) is a semi-autonomous area of Spain; steeped in culture, its traditions and festivals date back over thousands of years. Rich in medieval villages, highlights include prosperous Peratallada, peach-coloured Pals and fashionable Begur. The rocky coastline is dotted with pretty fishing villages, crystal clear waters and beautiful beaches which are perfect to explore.

This holiday is full of contrasts and variety and explores the full range of everything that Catalonia has to offer. Discover the bustling seaside metropolis of Barcelona and one of the most beautiful corners of Catalonia all in the space of one week.

In Barcelona spend time exploring the modernistic masterpieces of architect Antoni Gaudi, including the awe inspiring Basilica de Sagrada Familia and the Park Guell. Visit the narrow medieval streets of the Gothic Quarter and La Rambla, a broad tree lined promenade, always jostling with activity.

Then transfer further north to the prettiest part of the region. Here you commence gentle cycling, occasionally off-road, through olive groves, peach orchards and pine forests, and along pretty coastal paths. The landscape is gently rolling for the most part, making this an easy cycle and a relaxing holiday. The changing seasons bring white blossom in spring, sunflower yellow in summer and warm gold at harvest time. Fabulous coastal views, beautiful beaches and aquamarine waters make this an inspirational area.

You stay in a variety of hotels, all with pools, which have been hand-picked for their charm and character. In Barcelona the Boutique Gallery hotel is situated right in the heart of the city. The family-run Hotel Garbi in the traditional fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, is set on the hillside overlooking the sea. The stylish Hotel Sa Punta in Platja de Pals is set in attractive gardens and is within walking distance of the beach or you can cycle to nearby Begur. Two nights of the holiday are spent at the Hotel Castell d'Emporda, a magnificently restored 14th century castle perched proudly on its outcrop, just outside La Bisbal. The breathtaking views over the plain from its sun terrace are not to be missed.

This holiday has RidePlus routes as an option - longer, more challenging routes suitable for more experienced cyclists. See the itinerary for routes and distances. RidePlus routes require the use of a lightweight road bike, details of bike upgrades can be found in the dates and prices. Routes are supplied as downloadable GPX files for you to use with own navigation device (Garmin, Wahoo, Bryton, etc).

Spend time discovering the modernistic masterpieces of architect Antoni Gaudi, including the awe inspiring Basilica de Sagrada Familia and the Park Guell. Visit the narrow medieval streets of the Gothic Quarter and La Rambla, a broad tree lined promenade, always jostling with activity. Head out to dinner where you will find cuisine for every taste.

Day 2: Barcelona to Calella de Palafrugell

Transfer by train to Calella de Palafrugell and the Hotel Garbi. All Headwater guests are accommodated in rooms with a private balcony and sea view. It's less than 5 minutes' walk to the centre of town where you have so many restaurants to choose from, we've left evening meals up to you.
You stay at the Hotel Garbi (breakfast included)

Day 3: Calella de Palafrugell to Platja de Pals 33km/21mi

Your route today passes through the pine forests behind Calella before heading off to peach-coloured Pals, a lovely mediaeval town with Romanesque church affording stunning views.

You stay at the Hotel Sa Punta (breakfast and evening meal)

Day 4: At Platja de Pals

We strongly recommend a visit to medieval Begur, a fashionable hilltop town with 11th century castle and outstanding views over the coast. Alternatively, relax on the beach, follow the superb coastal walking path or simply chill out by the hotel's semi-Olympic pool.

You'll begin today cycling past rice fields before following the River Ter to Torroella de Montgri with wonderful views of the Illes Medes.

Here you'll stay in a uniquely converted 14th century Gothic castle - once reputed to have been on Dali's shopping list but now owned by Dutchman Albert Diks.
You stay at the Hotel Castell d'Emporda (breakfast and evening meal)

Day 6: At La Bisbal

Laze by the pool (there's a fabulous sun terrace and bar area) or follow our suggested cycling circuit linking the pretty mediaeval villages of Corca, Monells (pretty square and lovely choices for lunch) and La Bisbal, a lively market town famous for antiques and pottery. Take time to explore the old quarter including the Carrer del Call, formerly a Jewish ghetto, whose intricate arches are still intact today.

You stay at the Hotel Garbi (breakfast included)

Day 8: Leave Calella de Palafrugell

Please note that cycling helmets are a legal requirement in Spain. As we cannot provide these, we strongly recommend you bring your own.

Please see our Planning your holiday page for full details.

Day 3: Calella de Palafrugell to Platja de Pals - RIDEPLUS - 64KM/40MI

Today you ride inland from the coast to La Bisbal d'Emporda before returning to the coast and your hotel in Platja de Pals. The first climb of the day follows a series of classic switchback bends alongside the Riera de la Ganga before descending alongside the Riera del Vilar towards the plains and the second climb via Castell de Begur and down onto rolling terrain and the Hotel Sa Punta.
You stay at the Hotel Sa Punta (breakfast and evening meal)

Day 4: At Platja de Pals

We strongly recommend a visit to medieval Begur, a fashionable hilltop town with 11th century castle and outstanding views over the coast. Alternatively, relax on the beach, follow the superb coastal walking path or simply chill out by the hotel's semi-Olympic pool.
You stay at the Hotel Sa Punta (breakfast and evening meal)

Day 5: Platja de Pals to La Bisbal - Rideplus - 84KM/52MI

25km of gentle warm up on the plains above Pals gives ample chance to view the majestic Gavarres massif, training ground for most of Europe's pro cyclists. The start of the first 500m climb out of Madremanya has signs warning of cyclists along all the road, indicating its popularity. Don't feel too bad if you are overtaken by someone in team lycra, on one of the 15% switchbacks, they might be a world champion! After descending towards Girona you return via a more gradual climb over the Gavarres to your hotel.
You stay at the Hotel Castell d'Emporda (breakfast and evening meal)

Day 6: At La Bisbal

Laze by the pool (there's a fabulous sun terrace and bar area) or follow our suggested cycling circuit linking the pretty mediaeval villages of Corca, Monells (pretty square and lovely choices for lunch) and La Bisbal, a lively market town famous for antiques and pottery. Take time to explore the old quarter including the Carrer del Call, formerly a Jewish ghetto, whose intricate arches are still intact today.
You stay at the Hotel Castell d'Emporda (breakfast and evening meal)

Day 7: La Bisbal to Palamos - RIDEPLUS - 66KM/41MI

Today's ride begins by retracing the end of the descent into La Bisbal. A prolonged climb is capped by a series of rooftop level switchbacks at 17%. The reward is 10km of sweeping roads down through the shade of the trees off the West side of Les Gavarres Massif. The cork producing town of Cassa de La Selva offers opportunities for refreshment, and maybe give brakes a chance to cool down after the 4km straight-line downhill section. A second shorter climb, followed by a further 12km of downhill, takes you to the coast and your hotel at the seaside town of Paloma.
You stay at the Hotel Garbi (breakfast included)

Day 8: Leave Calella de Palafrugell

Mrs Knight, 26/09/2019

Lovely area. Great hotels. A little hillier than information suggests. Easy to get lost but great guide Greg at the end of a phone always ready to help and pick you up if completely lost. Our only problem was passing the hotel in cassavells at the app and notes did not tell us we were there. Had to be rescued after an extra 3 hours of cycling in deserted country side. Quite an adventure!
