Short Tour Description
This Cultural Coast & Wine tour through the Emporda and Costa Brava regions will allow you to enjoy e-bike cycling, a delightful landscape and taste great food and wine! You will also explore the history of this magnificent corner of Europe.
The Ancient Greeks were the first people to come to this faraway land and in around 600 BC they created links with the Iberian people already living in the area to trade goods. Later, during the 2nd Century BC, the Romans and their armies came and conquered, leaving a strong impression on these lands, one that remains to the present day. Nowadays the people here still speak languages that originated with Latin (Catalan and Spanish) and they continue to produce wine in the same way that it has been done for generations. With Christianity, Romanesque architecture and art arrived and wonderful churches and castles spread over the area, creating towns and villages. These developments had a significant impact on the local landscape. All of this interesting history, coupled with DO Emporda wine and delicious food, will be a truly unforgettable experience.

Cultural Coast & Wine Tour (Guided)
We returned home with huge smiles on our faces after a week with eBike Catalonia. The route was really interesting and every day was a different adventure! The food was brilliant and we loved trying the local wines, especially the cava! Our guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about the region. Looking out to the Mediterranean Sea from the monastery were my personal highlight, I was very pleased that I had an e-bike and not a regular bike as I definitely would not have enjoyed the climb quite so much, plus I still head energy once we reached the top to enjoys the panoramic views! We will definitely be back next year!
