Climbing in the Pyrenees, daytrip from Barcelona
Amazing unknown climbs on the way to Tourmalet: Coll de la Creueta

If you come and visit Barcelona and you’re a cyclist, maybe you didn’t notice how close Barcelona is to the Pyrenees, and how easy it is climbing a big mountain in a daytrip.

One of our favorite daytrips and guided tours is that one climbing to Coll de la Creueta, one of the big climbs in the catalan Pyrenees.

La Creueta has it all: beauty, panoramic views, nice asphalt, very scarce traffic, and also the goal of reaching almost 2000 mts. One of our favorite climbs in all of the Pyrenees. Coll de la Creueta connects to Cerdanya region, which capital is Puigcerdà, a classic destination for catalan skiers in winter.

In fact, Coll de la Creueta climbs to the most known ski station in Catalonia, La Molina. A big station not-so-far from Barcelona. It has been stage ending in Volta a Catalunya professional race for many years.

We are organizing a stage on July 24th, starting at Campdevanol, climbing Coll de la Creueta and then heading to La Molina. Final descent, amazing in La Collada de Toses, a great 25 km descent in a wide road, not too steep, heading to Ribes de Freser and then Campdevanol again. A guided tour, in which you will get one of the most beautiful climbs in the Pyrenees in a daytrip from Barcelona.
