Why You'll Love This Tour

Overview

Spain’s Costa Brava: Cycling Dali’s Landscapes

Castle-crowned villages alternate with pastoral scenes of fertile fields and coastal vistas as you roll beneath the backdrop of the Pyrenees. And as you discover the land that inspired artist Salvador Dali, you’ll also meet its modern-day residents in farms and orchards, and gain a different perspective on a private scenic cruise. Off the bike, relax in 4-star accommodations with generous amenities. Come join us on an itinerary that’s truly a masterpiece!

Cultural Highlights

  • Bear witness to the personal life of artist Salvador Dali during a visit to Púbol Castle, his beloved home.
  • Gaze at the majestic Pyrenees over a special dinner on the terrace of your lovely La Bisbal d’Empordà hotel.
