Passion for hiking

Rv Hotels offers you a wide range of options and hiking trails to enjoy the beauty and leisure of L'Empordà.
MONTGRI CASTLE ROUTE
The Montgrí Castle Route, which falls within the Montgrí, Medes Islands and Baix Ter (Lower Ter) Natural Park, gives you an insight into the most well-known features of Montgrí where you’ll discover places of great historical, archaeological and natural interest, not forgetting the stunning 360º panoramic view over much of the counties of Alt and Baix Empordà and across to the Pyrenees.
THE LOWER TER – A LAND OF PIRATES
An ideal route for cycling which meanders mainly among orchards, cereal fields and rice paddies. The route takes you to first to the mouth of the River Ter and then, heading in the direction of the former course of the River Ter, you can birdwatch from a lovely lookout point. You then head for Estartit beach, where the Medes Islands are so close it seems you can almost touch them. On the way back to Torroella de Montgrí you can admire some of the old fortified farmhouses, such as Torre Begura.
THE ROUTE OF THE WIND
This itinerary reveals the old farming layouts in the interior of the Montgrí massif. Among pinewoods and heathland, we pass by ancient drystacks, little dry stone walls piled up as a result of the clearing and de-stoning of woody terrain to create clearings suitable for crop farming. You will also see a doline, the cisterns, dry stone huts, a well and some old lime kilns.
TER RIVER GORGE ROUTE
The Gola del Ter Route is an easy itinerary through places of environmental interest along the coastline of the Lower Ter. Practically the whole route runs within the borders of the Montgrí, Medes Islands and Baix Ter (Lower Ter) Natural Park. This itinerary gives you an introduction to the geology, fauna and flora of sites such as the Vell Ter (the former course of the River Ter), Les Closes de Tamariu, La Pletera and its little inhabitants (Spanish toothcarp), dunes, pools, and the mouth of the Ter itself at the end of the route.
ROUTE OF THE VALLEY OF SAINT CATHERINE AND MONT PLA
This circular route takes in the main sights of interest in the central part of the Montgrí massif. Starting from the Casa del Guarda, we turn off to the Chapel of Saint Catherine before climbing up to the Castle of Montgrí. We then return to the starting point along the Montplà. For a large part of the route you will enjoy sweeping panoramic views over the county of Alt Empordà, the Gulf of Roses, Cap de Creus, Empordanet and the Lower Ter, Torroella de Montgrí, the Medes Islands and the Gavarres hills.
A SHORT RIDE BY MONTGRI
A short bike ride that links Estartit and Torroella along the lower slopes of Montpla. This is a pleasant route with a slightly more challenging finish. The outward journey takes in the agricultural flatlands, a landscape in which the human imprint is always visible. The return journey takes you along the lower slopes of the Montgrí massif, where there are plenty of signs and traces of the activities that used to take place here many years ago…
THE CALA MONTGÓ ROUTE (MONTGÓ BEACH ROUTE)
A linear route that links the seafront of Estartit with Cala Montgó. The route makes its way through two very different environments: on the one hand, you will be walking among scrubland and young woods of Aleppo pines, and on the other, alongside stunning cliffs with views of Cap de Creus, close to Cala Montgó.
THE ULLA AND GRAN MOUNTAIN ROUTE
This is a very comprehensive itinerary for doing on a mountain bike. You start with a comfortable ride along the plain, following easy tracks of sand and some asphalted ones between the villages of Ullà, Bellcaire d’Empordà and Sobrestany, cycling through crop fields and rice paddies. The other part of the route, which is somewhat more challenging, crosses the different sides of the Gran mountain, among ancient dunes that have now been established by woods of cypress and Aleppo pine, where you can see dry stone walls, vineyard huts and lime kilns.
