Day 1: Departure

Barcelona-Vic. About 100 km to get out of Barcelona taking the bike lane beside river Besos, and afterwards leading to Montseny area, where you will climb the nicest col in the area: Coll Formic. Solitaire road, great views, ideal for cycling. The first big mountain of the trip at 1145 mts.

Day 2

Vic-Puigcerdà. Today you will climb a precious col, not very known, although Volta a Catalunya pro race has been there several times. Coll de la Creueta, an espectacular mountain road with great views. Arrival to Puigcerdà, capital of Cerdanya area. We are already in the Pyrenees..

Day 3

Puigcerdà-Valencia d’Aneu. Long stage, about 130 km, including Coll de Cantó, a tough climb, but once at the top, the main difficulties are done. Once in the valley you will cross Sort town (translation: “Luck”). Maybe it is worth stopping to buy some lottery?

Day 4

Valencia d’Aneu-Bagneres de Luchon. No warm up and already a big climb: Port de la Bonaigua, over 2000 mts, a big one! Once in the valley (Vall d’Aran) we will enter France via Col du Portillon, a short but steep climb. Arruving to Bagneres de Luchon, the strongest will climb to Superbagneres, a nlong and steep climb included several times in Tour de France.

Day 5

Bagneres de Luchon-Campan, 123 km. Col de Peyresourde (including the famous crep restaurant at the top!) and Col d’Aspin are the difficulties of the trip. For die hard guys we include Port de Bales at the start of the stage. One of the toughest climbs all over the Pyrenees!

Day 6

Campan-Tourmalet-Aubisque-Bielle. 111 km including Col du Tourmalet and Col d’Aubisque. Those are capital letters. This stage is worth the whole trip. Cycling history has been written on these roads!

Day 7

Bielle-Saint Jean de Pied de Port. The trip is not over! This stage is even harder than yesterday! After Col du Marie Blanque (optional), you will have to climb Pierre St Martin (from Arette), and then Chalet d’Iraty and Burdinkurutxeta, to get to St Jean du Pied de Port, end of the stage.

Day 8:

Saint Jean de Pied de Port-San Sebastian. The last stage includes still 3 climbs. The last one if the famous Jaizkibel, included every year in Clasica San Sebastián in August. Fantastic views from the top, and then just the final descent to San Sebastián!

“2016 custom 7 day tour – girona into the pyrenees (and back)”

Last July (2016) Claudio arranged an amazing 7 day, supported tour for me and 7 members of my Canadian cycling squadra – all avid, competitive cyclists. We began in Girona, and did a big loop north into the Pyrenees including a night in France (aix les thermes) and Andorra.- averaging about 110-120 km per day. A week later we ended our ride at Mar de Tossa, a beauty seaside resort on the Costa Brava near Girona. Claudio worked out all details of our route, meals, hotels etc. while providing support on the road/moving our baggage from town to town. We have previously done several bike tours in pyrenees and alps with other cyclo-tour organizers (including Duck tours, cyclo mondo) but in most respects Claudio was absolutely the best! Incredibly attentive and kind, but obviously he knows the coolest roads, and nicest off the beaten track hotels in northern Spain.. .esp. Catalonia & Basque regions. For no extra charge he also picked up everyone + our bikes at Barce airport and transported to Girona. Then arranged to get everyone back to Barce to make our various flights when the tour was over . We wouldn’t hesitate to ride w/ Montefusco Tours again and are already thinking about arranging a similar tour w/ Claudio in the basque

“Amazing group tour of Catalan with an incredible tour guide in Claudio”

Claudio put a week tour together for our group of 8. Started in Girona, into the Pyrenees and into France, Andorra and ended on the Costa Brava. 100km plus per day. Great hotels and meals were arranged. The support van was always in the places it was needed. Highly recommended. Thanks Claudio
