BIKe itinerary

Welcome to Catalonia !

We welcome you in France at Perpignan TGV Train Station at 2 pm and drive you in Spanish Catalonia at your ideally located hotel of the charming Cadaques. After a bike fitting and a tour oriention, we will enjoy Cadaques which stands in a delightful site, to the south of the Cap de Creus. Its picturesque streets and bohemian atmosphere, which made it a popular haunt for artists and intellectuals in the first half of the 20C, the most famous of whom was undoubtedly Salvador Dalí, continue to appeal today.

LOOP AROUND Cadaques (via San Pere de Rodes)

You can either start the ride from Cadaques or add 40 km to reach the charming village of Castello d’Empuries. The challenge of the day is the magnificent San Pere de Rodes pass dominated by an ancient and well preserved Monastery. We ride towards low-key El Port de la Selva with Mediterranean view. On the way back we reach the Cap de Creus by a lonely, 8km-long road that winds its way from Cadaqués through the moonscapes. Cap de Creus is the easternmost point of the Spanish mainland, and a place of sublime, rugged beauty. With a steep, rocky coastline indented by coves of turquoise water, it’s an especially magical spot to be at.

Cadaques to Collioure (with border crossing) 

On the way to the border with France, we leave the Spanish Catalonia for the French Catalonia. We ride along rocky coves, small fishing ports and terraced vineyards on the hillside. 

We reach Collioure where we’ll spend the next two nights in the best hotel in town with stunning views once more. A fortified church, advancing so close to the coast that you would think it appeared from the sea, old streets with flowered balconies, a promenade by the sea, terraces of cafés and shops with coloured windows, that is the enchanting setting of Collioure

LOOP Around collioure (Via Madeloc Tower)

Our last ride, although short, will take us up to the heights of Collioure to pass at the foot of the Madeloc Tower along a spectacular tiny road, which from its 650 m altitude, will offer us an exceptional panoramic view of the Côte Vermeille, the terraced vineyards, fruit trees, pine forests and the charming village of Collioure. Don’t miss it for anything !

This afternoon we will be wine tasting and chilling by the beach in colourful Collioure.

TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

It is unfortunately already time to say goodbye. We will take you back to Perpignan TGV after breakfast to end this Secret Catalonia bike tour, unless you want to extend your stay with Veymont Travel.
