Today you will enjoy a day of adventure combining Biking and Sailing.
Meet your driver and guide in Barcelona and together depart to Girona. The drive should take approx. 1 hour. Whether it is excitement you are looking for or just a bit of peace and quiet, get up on your bike and let yourself be carried away by the beauty of the countryside and the forests, the greenways, the coves and the inlets of the Girona counties.
The Narrow-Gauge Railway Route stretches out 39.7 km. With a smooth incline from Girona to Sant Feliu de Guíxols (15 m), its highest point is at Cassà de la Selva (136 m). Following the old narrow-gauge railway line from Girona to Sant Feliu, you can get to know two of Girona’s regions – the Gironès and the Baix Empordà – from the Ter River basin, crossing the Selva depression and ending in the Ridaura valley.
The most salient feature of the railway line trail from Sant Feliu de Guíxols to Girona is the smoothness of its slopes and curves. The route is formed by a winding line that was mathematically mapped out over the rugged terrain. The paving is of a grainy granite sandtype material that blends in nicely with the terrain it crosses, although there are also urban sections at all the towns that it runs through.
After leaving Girona behind, the route passes the Selva depression, characterised by a patchwork mosaic formed by alternating croplands and forests. On clear days, you can enjoy an extraordinary panoramic view that encompasses the easternmost mountains of the Pyrenees range all the way down to the Montseny massif, including the coastal Serralada Transversal (El Far, Sant Roc, Rocacorba).
The second half of the section crosses the Ridaura valley, which separates the Cadiretes massif to the south from the Gavarres Massif, and runs gently down to the seaside town of Sant Feliu de Guíxols, the birthplace of the Costa Brava place name, which offers breathtaking seascapes and views of the surrounding countryside. Upon your arrival you will board a yacht for lunch.
You will have time for a swim in St. Feliu before departing for the sailing trip back to Barcelona. While en route, your skipper will also happily stop for you to hop off the boat for a dip in the ocean! Depending on weather and timing, the boat will likely make a stop at Arenys de Mar, which is a beautiful seaside town just up the coast from Barcelona.
In all, the sailing portion of your day will likely take 3-4 hours; it will be an enjoyable afternoon! Upon your arrival in Barcelona Port, your will be transferred to your hotel. The evening will be at leisure.
