  • Day 1

    Welcome to Catalonia

    Your DuVine guides will greet you at the Vilafant train station and drive you to the nearby city center of Figueres for a guided visit of the intriguing Salvador Dalí museum. A short stroll takes us to our favorite tapas bar for some bite-sized pintxos (gourmet tapas) such as gazpacho and spicy patatas bravas. Our first ride after lunch finds us spinning along quiet, tree-lined country roads and over the gently rolling hills that form the base of the Pyrenees. This evening we will toast our first day with a glass of sparkling Cava before enjoying some local specialties at our hotel’s acclaimed restaurant.
