Experience the subtle landscapes and interesting villages on a gentle cycle through Catalonia, specially designed for families. Ride across nearly flat or gently rolling terrain, from the green countryside near Girona to the azure Mediterranean Sea. Pedal back into history, as you ride through Roman archways and Medieval squares. Visit two museums dedicated to the fabulous art of DalÝ. Discover the ancient history of Iberians and Romans who inhabited the area. Marvel at sturdy town walls, while ancient watchtowers guide you through fields of sunflowers and wheat. Cycle the Ter River Delta and discover the rich fauna of protected wetlands at Aiguamolls. Once out on the coast, you'll enjoy sandy beaches, quiet coves and the beauty of typical fishing villages. During this three-centred cycle holiday, stay in charming rural accommodations housed in historical stone buildings.
