After your coffee stop head on to Torroella de Montgri. The next 15 Km are level and fast although you may want to stop in Ullastret, another fine example of an early medieval village on the way past. After this you head for home picking up the route back to Palamos where a well earned swim in the sea before returning to Calonge may be just the thing.

Day 3: La Gavarres
You leave Calonge and climb ‘La Ganga’. This pass goes through the Gavarres, a protected area of great natural beauty. The climb is moderately difficult but the reward is the free run into La Bisbal the main town of the Baix Emporda province. The route again turns into the woods of the Gavarres and heads to Cassa de Selva and on to Caldes de Malavella famous for Vichy Catalan mineral water before turning for home through Llagostera. One last climb will take you over to Calonge and home.

Level: Moderate to Difficult

Day 4: Beach
This is a rest day so you may want to cycle to the beach. Mas Eugenes , a local wine producer can be visited. The fish Museum in Palamos is interesting and you can watch the fleet come in with its catch around 4.30. Alternatively we can organise another route if you would like to do more kms.
