JANE G.

I love to travel with my Brompton!

This bike path lets you come across the Greenway (La Via Verde) in Girona, cycling your Brompton through volcanic landscapes full of contrasts at La Garrotxa county, visiting the monumental and lively city of Girona and discovering the most authentic Costa Brava.

The Greenway is the former railway that a tiny train used time ago to travel from the Pyrenees to the Costa Brava. Today those tracks have been turned into a track only for hikers and bikers, making it a safe and peaceful cycle tour which allows you enjoy a privileged environment and diverse landscape, from the volcanoes at the Garrotxa to the Costa Brava beaches and coves.

DAY 3 - Discover Girona

This day is the one to discover and enjoy the enchanting city of Girona in a guided Brompton tour. Well-known by its charming Old-town where Game of Thrones and many other filming productions have taken place. We will enjoy our Brompton bikes with a special Brompton day in Girona. At midday, Vermut experience. The “Vermut” is a classical aperitif, but also it refers to the time we spend around friends sharing a drink and some laughs before lunchtime on the weekends. We can enjoy a Vermut (an aromatized, fortified wine flavored with various botanicals)   with some catalan snacks ( local olives, common cockle or crisps) before lunch. In the afternoon, we will have some time to chill and relax. Later, in the evening (19h) we’ll take our Bromptons and cycle until Sant Gregori to check out Ham Session, a small bar that serves the best local products. There we will discover the secrets of Spanish Ham and, of course, taste it!

After dinner, we will cycle back to Girona by El Camí Ral.

DAY 4 - Reaching the Mediterranean, from Girona to Sant Feliu de Guíxols (43 Km)

The Greenways bike trip continues all the way down to the Costa Brava. We will again use the greenway as a guide to reach the coast but this time the scenery will be much different! We will ride across fields and plains and through villages like Cassà de la Selva and Llagostera, where we will stop to enjoy a picnic before arriving to our destination, Sant Feliu de Guíxols.
