The Costa Brava and Girona, a paradise for cycling enthusiasts
Thanks to its pleasant temperatures all year round, the variety and beauty of its nature, the existence of mountains and emblematic routes, Girona has for some years now become a benchmark city in the world of cycling.
In addition to offering a unique orography for the practice of outdoor sports, a large number of greenways and unique gastronomy recognised worldwide, Girona and the Costa Brava have for many years been the training headquarters of many professional cycling teams.
The best cycling routes on the Costa Brava
At Mas de Torrent we would like to offer you some spectacular cycling routes along the Costa Brava and Girona of all levels of difficulty so that you can find the one that best suits your needs. Below, we propose some routes for MTB or MTB:
Mountain biking routes on the Costa Brava and Girona
On the Costa Brava there are many kilometres of routes along old railway lines that have been converted into greenways in recent years, ideal for mountain biking or gravel biking. These routes are of different levels and you can do the easier ones with the family or you can push yourself to the limit on the more difficult routes, depending on what you want to do.
Arrozales de Pals and Gola del Ter BTT Route
This is an easy route of about 30km and with a positive difference in altitude of 114m. The route starts at Mas de Torrent, where through the streets of the village we move away and start to cross the fields of Torrent and Pals along wide, very cycleable tracks with views of the Mongrí and the old town of Pals, until we reach the mouth of the river Ter.
Gavarres mountain bike route
This is a difficult route of about 26km and with a positive difference in altitude of 440m. The route starts and ends at the Hotel Mas de Torrent, passing through several points of interest in the Gavarres such as Mas Plaja, the hermitage of Fitor or the tile fountain. A large part of the route runs along technical paths in the middle of holm oak forests.
