Bike Tour Ter is a descendant tour that follows the river Ter. It goes from the Pyrenees to the Nature Reservation of the Medes Islands in the Mediterranean sea.
During the tour we will visit five different Catalan regions, where we’ll have a chance to discover and experience their landscapes, culture, history, traditions and cuisine. In this route, it is very important the historical review by visiting the old textile colonies from the industrial revolution period that we find on the slopes of the river Ter. It’s also important to visit the Romanesque richness of the villages of Ripoll and Sant Joan de les Abadeses when you pass through them.
When you get to Osona you’ll have the chance to visit the Castle of Montesquiu, and you will go through the slopes of Gurri River, a tributary of Ter River, down to the Vic village, known as well as “Ciutat dels Sants. It has got a rich cultural heritage and it is well known for its old city, its famous Plaza Mayor, Roman Temple, Episcopal museum and Cathedral.
Leaving Vic and heading to Girona you will go through the Sau (do not forget to check if its famous church is underneath the water or not), Susqueda and Pasterial reservoirs where you’ll be all the time surrounded by the famous cliffs hiding the villages of Tavertet, El Far and Rupit. During the journey you’ll also have the chance to visit the Iberian settlement of “L’Esquerda” and the Monastery of “Sant Pere de Casserras”.
This easy route will allow you to enjoy the company of the river Ter from its source in “Ull de Ter” (up to 2200 meters) down to its mouth in l’Estartit where it mixes with the Mediterranean sea in the magnificent background of the Medes Islands.
