Cicloturisme i Medi Ambient is a travel agency specializing in cycling tours and hiking located in Girona ( Register of Tourism Government of Catalonia No. 000547 – GCMD ). We organize routes around Girona and trips and tours to different regions of Spain and Europe. Cicloturisme i Medi Ambient is a travel agency created in 1996 by Empar Vaqué, pioneer in the creation of touring bike routes in Catalonia.
Having a great knowledge of the territory, Vaqué designed different itinerant routes in the Empordà with the same approach and philosophy of the cycling tours that were already being developed in countries of Central and Northern Europe.
Empar Vaqué noticed that the Empordà, had not only a spectacular coastline but also an ideal place to practice leisure cycling, because it is a flat area that allows everyone to enjoy the cycling activity. It is a region with great diversity of landscapes, rich in medieval villages, historic ruins of all ages and with a wide range of traditions and a settled local cuisine.
It was about offering week-long routes and sleeping each night in a different place, looking for not very physically demanding routes and giving the chance to discover the region. An offer designed initially to customers in Central and Northern Europe.
