Girona Costa Brava

In the Costa Brava, cycling is everywhere. The region is host to a large community of professional cyclists who use this city as their training base. Thanks to the large variety of routes in the region, its extraordinary climate and the excellent range of complementary services, Costa Brava is a paradise for professional cyclists.

We will tour this beautiful region of Spain together with some of Europe's most sought-after buyers. From dramatic landscapes to quaint villages, breathtaking beaches to winding coastal roads, there are hundreds of kilometres of routes and roads ideal for novice cyclists and for the competitive cyclist, all in complete safety.

Our host hotels

Gran Hotel Monterrey

Boasting a setting steeped in the natural beauty of Catalonia's Mediterranean coast and a host of 5-star amenities, this property is comfortably among the best hotels in the region.

Park Hotel San Jorge

Located between Barcelona and Girona, the Park Hotel San Jorge is next to the sea offering flexible meeting solutions and luxury services in natural Mediterranean surroundings.

Hostal de La Gavina

With spectacular views over the Mediterranean, 74 rooms, a Michelin-starred gastronomic director and elegant meeting rooms, this property is ideal for intimate MICE events.

Hotel Camiral

Close to Barcelona, this 5-star hotel has two award-winning golf courses, luxurious suites, unique meeting solutions and will be developing even more MICE-relevant facilities over the next 18 months.

"The (amazing) cycling and the people (both suppliers and buyers) that I have met - I think an activity based trip brings more like-minded people together so you are more likely to connect with people who have things in common. I had an amazing time on Tour de MICE. Networking with buyers and suppliers whilst cycling made this a not-to-be missed event."
