5. GREEN WAYS AND ROAD BIKES
Also known as carril bici (cycle track), the greenway connects our town with the inland plains up to Girona and Olot. At present, it has achieved a great importance for tourists because of the restoration of Sant Feliu old railway. Sant Feliu de Guíxols greenway is the starting point and the end of the old “Carrilet” that ran from Olot to our town. It’s ideal for cycling or hiking.
