Experience varied landscapes, cuisine and climate of a three country tour through the Roussillon
region of France, Costa Brava, Catalonia in Spain and the principality of Andorra. We recommend planning a loop and
passing close by the following regional airports, Perpignan, Carcassonne or Girona. Bike supply and transfers to and from any
of these airports is possible with a the three countries tour.
Choosing daily distances between 50 and 60 miles, in this region is wise as there
is some climbing as you cross the Pyrenees. We can help tailor the exact itinerary to your ability.
If starting at Perpignan, you could follow the coastline south to Llanca before heading inland to Figueres and Girona. Salvador Dali spent much of his life
in the Catalan region and his influence can be seen in many of the local villages. From Girona, head west, past lake Banyoles and towards Santa Pau nestled in the volcanic region of the catalan pyrenees.
There is a superb view to be enjoyed by taking a hot-air ballon ride over the volcanoes from Santa Pau. A meal at one of the finest restaurants in the region Cal Sanpare is not to be missed!
For strong riders, the route into Andorra climbs the Col des Toses an easier route passes through Seo de Urgel before entering Andorra from the south.
After exploring Andorra la Vella, you'd head back into France over the Col de Puymorens and past the solar furnace at Font Romeu descending towards Prades.
This loop is completed with a final optional climb to the spa town of Amelie la Palada, or by continuing though the Roussillon back to Perpignan.
