Uncover the wild and beautiful landscape of Catalonia on this cycling holiday in North East Spain.

Relax and unwind as you pass fields of yellow sunflowers and meander through nature reserves teeming with bird-life. Take time to savour the local cuisine at the village markets and discover local tradition and culture in this hidden area of Catalonia. After a transfer from Girona, your cycle starts in Palau Saverdera which is a charming Catalan farming village, only 5km from the sea. You will be based here for the first few nights as you explore the surrounding villages and sights on your wheels, including a wonderful circular route to Peralada (famous for its winemaking). You then head south to Sant Pere Pescador your base for the rest of the holiday. En route you pass through Aiguamolls Nature Reserve where there is an abundance of birdlife and head on down to the coast for some fantastic views across to the Pyrenees. Plenty of relaxed cycling and stunning scenery make this a wonderful holiday to unwind and recharge your batteries. The pace of life, stimulating culture and dramatic seascapes of this largely undiscovered and unspoilt part of Spain will refresh and reinvigorate you.
