Your Journey

Day 3 Palau Saverdera→Sant Pere Pescador (28 kms)

Cycle south through the medieval village of Castello D’Empuries to the Aiguamolls Natural Park, dotted with hides for bird watching the many species. Continue through stunning Catalan countryside to the village of Sant Pere Pescador by the River Fluvià. Your rural guesthouse is surrounded by orchards and close to golden sand beaches.

Day 4 Sant Pere Pescador (37 kms)

Day 5 Sant Pere Pescador (39 km)

Circuit ride south today past the walled coastal settlement of Sant Martí d’Empúries. Highlight is the Greek and Roman ruins at Empúries.

Day 6 Sant Pere Pescador→Cadaqués

Transfer after breakfast to your accommodation in the delightful white-washed seaside town of Cadaquès.

Day 7 Cadaquès→Circuit walk to Dali’s House

Today enjoy a circuit walk to Dali’s house in Port Lligat. It is just over the hill from Cadaques but the track that hugs the coast is the more rewarding path. Dali must have walked it numerous times to gain inspiration. The house that Dali shared with his lifelong love and wife Gala, grew from a fisherman’s hut to acquire seven more houses which evolved into the charming, wacky and thought provoking home it became.

Day 8 Cadaquès

Arrangements end with a transfer to Girona Airport, Figueres Vilafont train station.
