Short Tour Description
This e-MTB trekking route offers a fascinating variety of colourful landscapes. During this tour you will venture deep into La Garrotxa, a beautiful natural park, comprising a dark green, woodland paradise, littered with inactive volcanoes and impressive peaks. As you then continue towards the coastline, you will see the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea shimmering in front of you! Be ready for some spectacular sights ahead!
As part of this tour, you will also cross the border into France, as did the Spanish politicians of the Republic, fleeing from the Franquist invasion eighty years ago at the end of the 1930s. Most of the exiled never returned to Spain. Nowadays, the border is an interesting place to visit, a historic landmark that holds a wealth of memories.
Approaching the sea, the rough landscapes of the Cap de Creus area are similar to the rocky Pyrenean landscapes that lie inland. The hillside terracing here provides a reminder of the flourishing agricultural activity that took place in this area. The wealth bought to the region from farming and rural activities including fishing, has played a huge part in the success of this part of Catalonia, and cultivation continues to this day.
Towards the end of this tour you will ride through the meadows of Emporda. The views riding through the open plains are simply breath-taking, and you will marvel at the Pyrenean Mountains in the distance. The end of the route approaches and you will complete the loop, finishing up back at where you first started. You are guaranteed to return with a backpack full of fantastic memories, and plenty of tales to tell your family and friends back home!
