Description

This circular route starts in the centre of Palamós and passes over three classic mountain passes in the Empordà on secondary roads with little traffic on most of the route. Head out of Palamós towards Calonge and follow the GI-660 road to head into the Gavarres mountains. From km 14 you climb the emblematic mountain pass called Coll de la Ganga, which connects to La Bisbal d’Empordà.

Once you have gone over the top of the pass, you can enjoy the pleasant descent, and at km 16.5 take the turning towards Sant Sadurní de l’Heura. Next, take the GI-664 road and start a stretch with excellent cycling. You are in the middle of the Gavarres, pedalling along the Santa Pellaia mountain pass, a pleasant gradual climb which enables you to enjoy this marvellous natural setting. Once you reach the top, a fast descent takes you to Cassà de la Selva where you take the C-65 road towards Llagostera. This is the stretch of the route with the most traffic and you will find you want to ride quickly. Straight away, take the GIV-6612 road towards Romanyà de la Selva on the last of the most popular cycling passes in the Empordà, where you can enjoy its marvellous old centre. Carry on along this road until you come to Calonge and then take the GI-661 road to cross Sant Antoni de Calonge towards Palamós, where you enter on the promenade and can enjoy the marvellous views.
