Program

The route and activities on this tour were constructed out of Kokopeli's experience and understanding of self-guided tour planning. The route allows clients to rest easy (at a lovely mountainside hotel or a special country house) on the one hand, while traveling at your own pace on the other.

Kokopeli Experience will send you to places that don't even appear in the guidebooks and introduce you to magical sites and wonderful countryside scenery. Kokopeli Experience has planned a tour covering all of the must-see spots of the area. Kokopeli Experience remains available for any inquiry, assistance, or advice. In any case of emergency, Kokopeli Experience can attend you 24/7.

Itinerary

Day 1: Barcelona - medieval village, 120 kilometers / 75 miles

You will set out northwards towards the Collsecabra. This region is the very heart of Catalonia and is characterized by steep cliffs, forests, isolated farms, and ancient villages. You will visit the village of Rupit. Going back hundreds of years, you will wander along the picturesque winding streets. This enchanting village is still inhabited, but you will not find here the hordes of tourists who crowd the streets of Barcelona and the contact with the locals is direct.

You will carry on riding towards the Panta de Sau, a lake surrounded by tall mountains, where optional activities such as kayaking and off-road Segway can be added. These give the fully immersive feeling of being one with nature. You will end the day with dinner at the village and spend the night at a hotel in the area.

Day 2: Ride to Espot, 250 kilometers / 155 miles

Driving past the town La Seu d'Urgell, you will head up into the principality of Andorra for a few hours (shopping). After spending a short time in the small mountain nation, you will leave Andorra and head towards the village Espot. This day includes long hours of riding over winding mountainside roads. If time permits, you could ride up a challenging narrow path up to the cliffs overlooking the abandoned villages of Jou and Son. You'll spend the night at a hotel in Espot.

Day 3: Espot - Val d'Aran, 90 kilometers / 56 miles

This morning, you will begin your day with one of two options. The first option is a rough and exciting river-rafting. There are rushing waters, fantastic scenery, and great fun. This exciting, challenging, and highly enjoyable activity takes place on the breathtakingly beautiful Noguera Pallaresa river. Here, you take into account more than just the rafting itself, one cannot forget the surroundings in the process - the wild scenery, the varied flora, the cliffs, and all the excitement of nature.

Wetsuits and safety equipment will keep you safe and warm, and the professional team of guides will ensure your safe arrival at the finishing point. No previous experience is necessary nor is taking part compulsory (although it is highly recommended).

The second option is to make your way along ranges and picturesque villages towards the Aiguestortes National Park, one of the most famous and beautiful parks in Spain. You will be taken, in park vehicles, up to the Pic d'Amitges at 2,400 meters of height. Depending on the season (about until the middle of June), there is a good chance of seeing snow and glaciers floating on the high mountain lakes. After returning back to Espòt from the park, you will head towards the beautiful and unique Aran Valley where you'll spend the night.

Day 4: Val d'Aran - Lourdes (France), 250 kilometers / 155 miles

Riding through difficult winding roads, high mountain passes, and plenty of turns, you will pass through the beautiful scenery of the Aran Valley and over into France to the other side of the Pyrenees. You will ride through several mountain passes including the world-renowned Col du Portillon.

From here, you will go to witness one of the Pyrenees' most unique natural phenomenons, Gavarnie’s glacial cirque and waterfall. The site itself is breathtaking and the roads leading there no less so. It is, without a doubt, a must-see. Towards evening, you will make your way to your hotel in the town of Lourdes.

Day 5: Lourdes - Torla (Spain), 180 kilometers / 112 miles

In the morning, after another gorgeous ride, you will reach Pont d’Espagne with its numerous waterfalls. This is a gorgeous site where a cable car can be taken to the higher summits and the famous Gaube Lake. Afterwards, you will drive up to Col de Soller, reaching several mountain passes with many impressive views and challenging rides.

You will start your ride in the afternoon back towards the Spanish border and continue until reaching the medieval village of Torla where you'll enjoy a dinner in a nice restaurant and where you will spend the night.

Day 6: Torla - Alquezar, 300 kilometers / 186 miles

In the morning, you will go on a visit to Ordesa National Park and Monte Perdido, the lost mountain. This is one of Europe's most famous parks. After a short hike, you will head out of the valley and towards the region of Sierra de Guara, a region full of gorges, creeks, limestone caves, and breathtaking overall natural beauty.

You will reach the ancient village of Alquezar where you can stroll through the ancient alleyways and streets. You will spend the night at a hotel nearby.

Day 7: Alquezar - Barcelona, 120 kilometers / 75 miles

Riding over amazing roads, you will make your way towards holy Montserrat, the serrated mountain. After a short visit to the monastery and church, there is an option of taking a cable car up the mountain towards the higher peaks where a short hike can be enjoyed. Afterwards, you will make your way back to Barcelona where the tour will end.
