THIS SPRING AND AUTUMN ENJOY EVERY MINUTE ON THE MINUTE
Destination: From La Garrotxa National Park to the Costa Brava
Catalonia (Spain) is a land of diverse landscapes: coasts, mountains, rivers and even volcanoes! There is a region, La Garrotxa, known for its volcanic area, with 40 volcanic cones and more than 20 lava flows. Although the volcanic activity in La Garrotxa ceased more than 10.000 years ago, two of its main volcanoes still have the particular conic shape and visitors can climb up to its craters. You will cycle from this epic volcanic through the Greenway cycle paths that connect the Pyrenees with the beautiful Costa Brava area !
Without a doubt, the diversity of this trip is what makes it so amazing and unique. Starting in a marvellous volcanic area and ending at the coast, there is something for everyone on this rute. Outdoors lovers will appreciate the beautiful scenery of the area. Foodies will revel in the appetising local dishes. History fans are no doubt going to enjoy diving into the legends that surround each of the quaint little villages and Crossfit freaks will sweat it all out and recharge their batteries.
Cycling downhill, overlooking the Mediterranean sea, turning nature into our Crossfit Box. An adventurous trip mixed with tough outdoor and indoor workouts (WODs), delicious food and a sparkle of history. An experience you won’t forget!

LOCAL AND TRADITIONAL RESTAURANTS
For many Catalan families food is the foundation of society. Family life here is centered on long and delicious meals enjoyed together. We cook from scratch on a daily basis and we value this precious time to socialize together. In 2016, Catalonia has been named European Region of Gastronomy, an honour that reflects the quality of its agricultural and culinary heritage and its tourism industry.
