Day 1: VILAFRANCA- TARRAGONA
You will start from Wine Capital, Vilafranca del Penedès, where you will be able to discover a wine territory that will surely surprise you. Later, vineyards and hills will gradually disappear from our landscape to reach in a gentle descent Tarragona, Mediterranean essence in its pure state. The ancient Roman Tarraco, a millennial city, where its cultural richness and its warm beaches of the Costa Daurada stand out.
Accommodation: Hotel Astari 3 * Distance: 62 km Slope: +480 m
Day 2: TARRAGONA – FALSET
Your ride today takes you from sea to reach altitude until Falset, Priorat Capital, where the vineyard will once again take prominence, but in a different way, with height, and perched in its mountains. Surely the uniqueness of this area, often valued more authentic than Tuscany, and the almost artisanal works treatment makes it one of the most internationally recognized wines.
Accommodation: Hotel Lotus Priorat 3 * Distance: 57 km Slope: +760 m
Day 3: FALSET – MONTBLANC
This morning, the journey is the heart of the Cistercian route, a Medieval heritage land. A climbing route that will force us to dose our strength well up to km 40, from there all the way down through Espluga de Francolí, where we recommend stopping for a while before reaching Montblanc.
Accommodation: Hotel ViaAurelia 2 * Distance: 62 km Slope: +1170 m
Day 4: SANT FELIU DE GUIXOLS – L’ESTARTIT
After a van transfer to Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Costa Brava (Wild Coast), a route at a time winding and mostly parallel to the brilliantly blue Mediterranean Sea, take you ride to end with a spectacular finale, at the seafront in L’Estartit. An ideal place to enjoy a pleasant holiday at any time of the year.
Accommodation: Hotel Nereida 3 * Distance: 60 km. Slope: +440 m.
Day 5: L’ESTARTIT – FIGUERES
Relaxed route along Empordà plain. A territory straddling the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees, which together with the north wind have marked both, the landscape and the mood of its population. Your ride ends in Figueres, the nerve center of the Costa Brava, and the birthplace of Salvador Dalí’s surrealism.
Accommodation: Hotel Pirineos 4 * Distance: 51 km. Slope: +80 m.
Day 6: FIGUERES- GIRONA
On today’s itinerary you will pedal through several typical villages as where we recommend stopping for a while in one of them. The roads where you will cycle today are the usual training roads of many professional cyclists living in Girona. More than 150 are living in the Girona area due to the climate, the good roads, the anonymity of professional cyclists, the quality of life, the gastronomy and the safety of the roads where drivers, as a rule, are very respectful of cyclists. So you will meet some of them during the day.
