about this tour

Join us for a four-day road cycling tour on the peaceful back roads of Baix Empordà and Girona – a playground for dedicated and pro-cyclists. Our local contacts and knowledge from years spent walking, cycling and nurturing relationships with local wine and olive oil makers will give you a unique perspective of a corner of Catalonia infused with fascinating culture, history and jaw dropping vistas.

Situated in Northeastern Catalonia, the Empordà region is relatively unknown given its gastronomic, viticultural and olive oil producing heritage. The people of the Empordà have been producing wine and olive oil since the Greeks, Romans and Arabs inhabited the area two and a half thousand years ago. With its abundance of cultural sites, medieval towns, national parks and fishing villages, combined with a growing number of family-run cellars, olive oil producers and World-renowned restaurants, the potential for wine and olive oil tourism is greater than ever. 

The cycling routes we have chosen wend along beautiful back roads and over mountains and hilltops, providing thrilling descents and panoramic vistas. Each evening we will return to the comfort of carefully handpicked accommodation – a beautifully restored medieval castle and a renovated manor house nestled in the hills of a national park.
