Home to some of Spain's most iconic cities and famous (and infamous) characters, Catalonia is a one-of-a-kind destination. With a history as diverse as the territory and a cultural identity and language of its own, this Spanish community will delight and fascinate. Join us on a 12-day bicycle tour that begins in Girona, one of the most fought after towns in all of Spanish history, having been sieged over 25 times. We'll pedal east towards the rugged Costa Brava and through the rolling hills of the Emporda' region - dotted with Roman ruins and medieval towns. Our journey continues through hidden fishing villages and quiet towns along small roads through wine country on our way to Figueras, Salvador Dali's birthplace. We'll continue to the west and the foothills of the Pyrenees through nature reserves and to ancient Roman spa towns before looping south. Our journey ends with a fabulous 10-mile bicycle path that leads into the heart of Barcelona.

Highlights: Barcelona, Garrtoxa Volcanic Natural Area, Girona, Figueras and Dali Museum, Medieval Villages, Costa Brava Beaches, Vic, Extraordinary food - Girona has more restuarants with Michelin stars then anywhere else in the world.

***If this sounds great but you don't have time for the full 12 days, check out our 8-day Bicycling Catalonia's Costa Brava itinerary which shortens this itinerary by 4 days.***
