This holiday includes Mountain Biking the exciting and challenging trails of the Baix Emporda Mountain Bike network.  This network has literally hundreds of kilometres of trails that range from stunning forest trails through to blistering single track which, at times, requires high levels of technical skill to ride. The highest peaks in the riding area are approximately 500m and are situated in very hilly terrain, making this perfect mountain biking territory. The more challenging rides accumulate up to and over 1000m of ascents.

 Some of the highlights of the routes:

  • The 1000 year old hamlet of Romanya de la Selva.

  • The remains of the castle used as a lookout post during the Civil War.

  • The stunning lookout of ‘Pedralta’ – the balancing rock with views to the Pyrenees and the coast.

  • The lookout of ‘Puig d’Arques’ to soak up the amazing views of the pine and cork forests of the ‘Les Gavarres’ protected area sweeping down to the sea.

  • The 1000 year old chapel of ‘San Miquel’ with stunning views over Girona and the foothill of the Pyrenees.

Routes

We have hundreds of kilometres of  mountain bike routes to choose from that take us into the Les Gavarres and L'Ardenya protected areas (each area is approximately 400km˛ ). Itineraries take us from sea level up to 500m in altitude offering incredible views of the surrounding countryside, before winding our way through the forest to return back to base. The trails are a combination of fire trails and single track that will challenge even the most experienced of riders.
