Enjoy the natural and cultural heritage of the Empordà region
Excursion by E-Bike
Exercising while enjoying the cultural, architectural, landscape and natural richness of the Alt Empordà is a great combination. With Empordà Lovers you will have the opportunity to discover new routes with a high-end electric bike.
The activity offers 4 different options:
Empúries Route (Easy difficulty)
This tour will take you through one of the flattest areas of the Empordà. The route goes through Sant Martí d’Empúries, a medieval village and arrival place for the Greeks and Romans, a civilization that profoundly influenced the culture and landscape of this region. From Sant Martí we’ll follow the agricultural plain of the Empordà all the way to the Empúries ruins where we’ll then enter into the Wetlands Natural Park of Empordà. From here we’ll follow the wide, sandy coastal paths along the Roses Gulf to Sant Pere Pescador, a town surrounded by emblematic natural parks and where we’ll also discover the Gola del Fluvià, la Closa d’en Puig and the Matà Lakes, all the while basking in the fields of apple trees and the green and yellow fields of fruit, and the blues and golds of the surrounding beaches.
Aiguamolls de Vilaüt route (Easy difficulty)
In this tour we’ll explore the wetlands of Empordà, one of the main wetland regions of Catalonia, which stands out for its natural, aesthetic and social values. We’ll experience this exceptional landscape in a different way and all from the comfort of an e-mountain bike.
From the Empúries Castle we’ll dive into the areas around the Vilaüt lagoons, the habitat and refuge for many different species of birds during their migration period. If we’re lucky we’ll see the migratory birds taking a rest during their long journey, or perhaps we’ll hear a thunderous concert of frogs. We’ll continue on through the nature that surrounds the towns of Pau, Vilajüiga, Peralada and Vilanova de la Mug, through the hillside of the Rodes mountains, crossing the Empordà plain and the mosaic of fields and crops protected from the north by rows of cypress trees, before finally returning along the banks of the Muga River.
There is also the possibility of ending the tour with a wine tasting at the Espelt winery.
Llançà - Puig d’Esquer route (Intermediate difficulty)
Llança -Puig d’Esquer Route (Intermediate technical level)
In this tour you’ll discover Albera, an experience that will take you from the coastal town of Llançà to one of the most emblematic peaks in the eastern part of the Albera Nature Reserve, Puig d’Esquer. From here we’ll be treated with an exceptional panoramic view of plain, the Albera mountain range and the Costa Brava coastline.
The e-mountain bike allows us to comfortably and easily enjoy this tour all the up to the peak. Along the way we’ll discover the local Mediterranean vegetation that is very common on Albera hillsides. We’ll continue on to the small valleys and flat areas of the secondary mountain ranges of the Pyrenees, and we’ll discover some of the dolmens and menhirs that make the Alt Empordà one of the places in Catalonia with the highest concentration of megalithic structures. This is a little taster of the lesser known Romanesque heritage of Albera.
Corriol de la Mina route (Very difficult)
This tour brings you to the hidden nooks and crannies of the Cap de Creus Natural Park and lets you experience it in an entirely different and exciting way!
We begin the tour in Roses and from there we follow the narrow paths through Mediterranean vegetation, cruising through abandoned farmhouses, dolmens and stone structures that are so typical of this region, until we finally arrive to the Coll de Perafita, between Cadaqués and Port de la Selva.
The tour continues along paths that used to connect the coastal towns, like Port de laSelva, Llançà and Roses, until we get to Cadaqués, a very charming small fishing town in the Empordà. We’ll return via the southern slope of the Peni mountain, enjoying the thrilling sensations of going up the mountain on an e-mountain bike.
