From Collioure to Cadaqués by bike (guided)

Discover the Mediterranean coastline by electric bike
From Collioure, set off by bike to discover the Mediterranean coast and the mountains plunging into the sea on your way to Spain!

Using small roads and wide balcony paths, this itinerary is designed to be accessible. Each day, you pedal through vineyards, cork oak forests and scrubland. With the help of electric assistance (or without for the more athletic), you'll climb with minimal effort to find magnificent panoramas from the mountains overlooking the sea. At the end of each stage, we suggest you take advantage of the nuggets of our region: wine tastings at our favorite winemakers, swimming in wild creeks, snorkeling, cultural visits and tapas on the terrace...

    From Collioure to Banyuls

    23km, 470m D+

    This first day of cycling is a gentle mix of mountains, vineyards and crystal-clear creeks... You head for the mountains, sheltered from tourists, which smell of ubiquitous Mediterranean flora. You overlook ancient vineyard terraces, plunging down a staircase to the coves of the Côte Vermeille.
    This cycling stage takes you right up close to nature, in a sublime setting where Catalans have been developing the resources of their land since the Middle Ages.
    At the end of the day, we invite you to taste their wine in the bay of Paulilles, before taking a dip in the clear waters of the sea below.
    Arrival in Banyuls. Dinner on your own and overnight in a hotel in Banyuls.

  • Day 3:

    Banyuls, Cerbère and the underwater trail

    27km, 600m D+

    The colorful ambience of the holiday is gradually taking hold of you, as the day promises to be radiant! A cool climb up to the mountains, where you may notice small cactus-like shrubs growing small, colorful fruits... And yes, the prickly pear joins the landscape, heralding your descent southwards.
    You pedal towards the ridges that form a natural border between France and Spain, where you'll be tomorrow. Pass Cerbères, the last small French port. Known for its exceptional nature reserve, we suggest you round off your day with a snorkeling trip along the underwater trail.
    During this fun outing, you'll swim along a signposted path to discover the beauty of underwater life.
    On arrival in Banyuls, we'll treat you to a tasting with our friends Vincent, Augustin and Martin. These brothers have taken over from their father Marc, who passed on to them his peasant vision of wine.

    Suggestions :
    - Snorkeling on the underwater trail of the Banyuls reserve

  • Day 4:

    From Banyuls to Port de la Selva

    37km, 850m D+

    Off to Spain for another day. Hidden away from the touristy Costa Brava by Cap de Creus, you enter Spanish lands that have remained timeless. Passing through the small Benedictine abbey of Saint Quirze, lost in the heart of the Albères mountains. Finally, you descend through fields of olive trees, holm oaks, arbutus, cysts... where the scents of thyme and rosemary gradually mingle with sea spray.
    Arrive at the small Spanish fishing port of Puerto de la Selva, where you can enjoy some tapas by the sea.
    Dinner and overnight in your hotel in Puerto de la Selva (or Llança).

  • Day 5:

    From Port de la Selva to Cadaqués

    18km, 550m D+

    Leaving Puerto de la Selva, you pedal towards the Cap del Creus nature park along ancestral paths bordered by attractive dry-stone walls.
    Founded in 1998, the national park contrasts with the coast to the south, as it is the largest uninhabited coastal area in Spain. The landscape has therefore remained untouched, almost unchanged since the creation of the surrounding villages by the Greeks and Romans. Arrive in Cadaqués, where the crystal-clear waters of the sea are reflected in the beautiful white houses.

    Dinner at your own and overnight in your hotel in Cadaqués.

  • Day 6:

    Discover the Cap del Creus nature park - Cadaqués

    27km, 550m D+

    This morning, you'll set off from Cadaqués in the heart of the Cap del Creus nature park to discover coves, ancestral paths and, of course, the cape, which looks like the end of the world. Lunch is available at the lighthouse restaurant, with its stunning sea views. In the afternoon, we recommend our favorite coves, where you can swim in the heart of nature.
    Back to the "white village", where we warmly recommend a visit to Dali's house in Portligat.
