With direct access from the “El Bosqueró” farm, 700m away, there is this well-known bike-lane that runs between Olot and Girona, called “the Carrilet Route”. It is of very low difficulty, ideal for the whole family and all the ages.
This 57Km-long route crosses three regions and twelve towns and crosses the valleys of the Fluvià, Brugent and Ter rivers. The Route of the Carrilet Olot-Girona has a gentle slope from Olot (440 m) to Girona (70 m) and its highest point is located in the Coll de Bas, at 558 m above sea level. The route, suitable for pedestrians and bicycles, is in very good condition, conditioned with new bridges, railings and signage.
The Carrilet Route crosses landscapes of great scenic, ecological and cultural importance. It begins in the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa and, always following the route of the old narrow gauge train, it reaches the Ter valley and the “dehesas” of Salt and Girona. The road that once linked the Garrotxa and the Gironès allows you to know the natural resources of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa, the castle of Hostoles and the urban centers of Anglès, Sant Feliu de Pallerols and Girona, among others. Spaces such as the “dehesas” of Salt or Girona are also integrated into this route, which runs close to the Ter in its last stretch and allows us to observe the uses that have been made of the river’s hydraulic resources.
We have an agreement with a bicycle rental company to offer you a more flexible and comfortable service, with delivery and pick up at the farm, if requested.
The prices approx. are: 17 € (1 day) / 27 € (2 days) / 32 € (3 days).
Please, request the reservation of the bicycles as son as possible to guarantee their availability.
