The adventure of cycling from the Pyrenees to the Costa Brava
A surprising 340-kilometre circular route
The 340-kilometre Pirinexus route covers a wide variety of landscapes and passes through centuries-old forests, unique volcanoes, nature parks, vineyards and unspoilt coves.
On this circular route, you will discover two area steeped in history: the counties of Girona and the Vallespir region in France. You will encounter historic paths such as those of La Retirada, places that will take you back to Greek and Roman times such as the ruins of Empúries, and emblematic cities such as Girona.
Along the route, you will find charming hotels, a renowned gastronomic and oenological tradition, and services dedicated to cycle tourists.
You will cycle along greenways, forest tracks, and roads with little traffic. It is therefore advisable to use a hybrid gravel or trekking bike. This is an ideal route to do with panniers and at your own pace, enjoying the territory in two, four or six days.
The European project BiciTransCat has made it possible to create new kilometres of intermodal route between Girona and France and improve services for users of the cycle routes
