Information

6 t/m 9 november 2024 will be the sixth edition of the 4 day from Girona with max 200 participants take place. You fly on Tuesday 5 November and Sunday 10 November you take the return flight, In 4 days you will experience all the beauty of the province of Girona on foot. Every day we start and finish in Devesa park, next to the historic center of Girona. 70% of the route is on unpaved paths through the woods, it is hilly here and there with climbs, a good condition is necessary. There is a long version (ca 25 km/day) and a short version (ca 18 km/day). The short and long routes largely follow the same route, the long one has an extra loop.

 

 

Road

Two distances

Day 1, 18 / 25 km
An ideal route for the first day to acclimatize and get used to walking in Spain. A flat and unpaved route through forests and along the Ter river.
Day 2, 18 / 26 km
Day 2 the first half is flat, along an old train route to the village of Quart where coffee and sandwiches will be ready for you at the local bakery. You walk past some old train stations that they have managed to maintain. In the second half you dive more into the woods and have some short climbs. Just before Girona you have to cross a river via stones, after which you arrive at the city wall of Girona via the Onyar river.. You then walk the last kilometer on top of the city wall to the start/finish location.
Day 3, 14 / 17 km
Today is climbing day. With a total 410 altitude meters for both distances the toughest but also most beautiful day. Unpaved paths through the woods all day long “The Gavarres”, but no hiking either, accessible to everyone. You will pass some ruins and castles.
Day 4, 18 / 24 km
We have saved a very nice route to the North West for the last day. You mainly walk slightly uphill for the first half and back down again for the second half. Right in the middle you walk past a beautiful restaurant with spectacular views where tapas are ready. You are in the woods almost all day again, with many unpaved roads and therefore again without traffic. At the end you walk past the best restaurant in the world.

Accommodation

If you register for the 4 We will organize your stay for you every day. Our walkers can choose from the comfortable 2 stars Ibis Girona Costa Brava hotel, or for an extra price the luxury 4 stars hotel Carlemany.

A possible 3rd option is a special B&B from the Dutch owner Debbie, in the village of Banyoles: https://www.123ole.nl/. Please contact Debbie for this (see website) and she arranges transport to the start every day and back to the B after the run&B.

Girona is the most north-eastern province of Spain. The capital is Girona, a little city 30 km go from Costa Brava in 100 km north of Barcelona. In the centre, still completely in the medieval style, you will find cozy restaurants and terraces in all the small streets and squares. The city center is perhaps one of the nicest in Spain. You have many options to eat well and inexpensively at the same time. The region is sunny and green, In November it is a nice place to be with temperatures that can rise to 15-20 degrees.
