CycleTours Catalonia belongs to Cicloturisme i Medi Ambient which 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.
Cicloturisme was also the designer of the Cycling Network in the Baix Empordà and the Baix Empordà Mountain Bike Center.
The creation of the Greenways in Girona, brought a new opportunity to develop cycling leisure also in the interior lands. The Route “El Carrilet” had soon a great popularity among Catalan people and foreigners, accompanied by the development of a domestic tourism in our country.
Cicloturisme organized various routes and services along the Greenways.They were combined with their routes on the plain of the Empordà. These were proposals for the whole week and weekends.
This work allowed Cicloturisme to establish itself as an incoming travel agency, for clients coming from other countries in Europe, the United States and also Catalonia. More recently another task was included as a proper service: being an outcoming travel agency, offering cycling tours to Catalan people around Europe.
Cicloturisme is currently under the new management of Eduard Kirchner. As a team, we are continuing the work done so far, designing new routes with new activities and themes; and also setting up our business in a more sportive type of holiday, organizing cycling stages and open water swimming, among others.
