Responsible tourism: Catalonia cycling tours, beach & mountains

Environment

We offer you a unique way to offset your carbon footprint by using pollution-free bicycles. Travelling by bike, you are no longer an observer — you are an active participant in the local environment and culture.

Travelling on small and quiet roads, this tour will allow travelers to experience part of the rural countryside and ride through famous and authentic villages that beautifully illustrate the multi-faceted character of Catalonia and this area of southern France.

Travelers are invited to know national parks and their fragile environment such as Les Aigles de Valmy (Valmy’s Eagles) where you can admire rare protected species of Eagles; "Gorges de la Fou" that can be visited thanks to footbridges along them and "Garrotxa Volcanic Natural Park."

We recommend travel by train, a much more eco-friendly solution. To travel within Europe, we recommend taking trains over renting cars using or air transports. Trains are more energy-efficient and will minimize the CO2 emission per capita. When flying is required, we suggest using an airline that contributes to funds aimed at offsetting carbon emissions.

In cities, we recommend clients to use public transportation, or to walk or bike. City bike rentals are more and more widely available in big and medium-sized cities across Europe they are the best way to get around congested cities.

Community

We promise a variety of locally produced and grown products will be accessible on our tours. During this trip you may get to experience the best of fine local produce by visiting the villages´ local markets indicated in our route notes (Sant Feliu de Guíxols´s market is worth a stop!) or by tasting tradicional wines from our list of suggested local cellars.

We promise to provide access to local arts and crafts and to give sponsors of the local economy the opportunity to display their goods and services to an international clientele. As a large section of the tour takes place on the coast, we recommend travelers looking for side activitied to contract the services of family-run water sports schools (diving, windsurfing, canyoning). In visiting the listed Monasterio de Sant Feliu de Guíxols and Monestir de Sant Pere de Rodes, travelers will also help with the preservation of Catalonian heritage.

We promise to support local and family run hotels and restaurants. Forget the non-descript and indistinguishable big chain hotels; we use genuine places with local charm. We relying on local guides and family-owned hotels, and we hope to ensure a warm, personalized welcome. We expect these properties to be run by people who have a passion for their region, culture, gastronomy, and historical heritage. We use genuine places with local charm, blending harmoniously into the environment. Our hotels offer guests a pleasant, proper environment. Some of them have as few as two rooms, while others are small personal hotels.

We promise to team up with a local bicycle renter in Girona. We value their expert work and most of our clients are renting bikes directly through them instead of bringing their own. This, of course, benefits the local economy.

We are based in France. This is where we live and work. Our office is located in the French Alps, just a stone’s throw from the Swiss border, and we ride the very same roads we recommend for our cycling vacations. As firm believers of sustainable development, we have established a friendly network of professionals, comprised mainly of local tour guides, small operators, and family-run agencies. Most of our people have created their own jobs/enterprises in order to live out their passion for the region and cultural heritage. All have extensive travel experience and have lived in various places before falling in love with the area they now call home. We promise that traveling with us guarantees you will be taken care of by dedicated professionals who chose to build their lives here.
