Why is Costa Brava the ideal destination for a Self-Guided Biking tour? “Costa Brava is a biking paradise,” Andrea explains. “It’s where a lot of professional cyclists go to train. It has the perfect weather, great cycling surfaces, and some of the best biking infrastructure in Europe. You can find all kinds of terrain, from hills to flat areas for cruising. Plus you have the Pyrenees as a backdrop—it doesn’t get better than that.”
Costa Brava isn’t just great for cycling, it’s also a destination with an incredibly rich culture. “From cultural icons like Barcelona and Girona to small villages full of history, there’s so much to discover here,” says Andrea. She also points out the area’s exceptional dining options. “From casual family spots to fine dining, you can find everything. People from all over Europe come to eat here. It’s one of the best places in Spain for seafood, and we have so many amazing rice dishes—you have to try ‘arros a la cassola!’ There are also so many great options for vegetarians.”
The free time built into the Spain: Barcelona & Costa Brava Self-Guided adventure gives travelers the opportunity to experience the area in different ways, which Andrea considers a huge benefit.
