In the summer

Take a bicycle ride around the charming little villages of the Cerdanya, visit the impressive Iberian settlement of Bolvir, and relax in the peace and quiet of these natural surroundings.

Start your weekend early in the morning in Puigcerdà, with a round trip route by electric bicycle to visit little villages like Queixans and Pereres, in the valley of Cerdanya. All in all the route covers some 30 km, an excellent way of spending the day on a bicycle.


During your bicycle tour stop at Bolvir, where you will find an impressive Iberian settlement which was opened to the public in 2015. The museum's facilities are modern and its collections and video presentation will help you to locate yourself in the Cerdanya of 2,000 years ago. The tour of the settlement, which is completely adapted and different from the others in the Iberian Route, provides a unique and memorable experience, as well as having some breath-taking views.

Spend the night at the Hotel Park Puigcerdà, located just at the entrance to the town. The hotel is well-equipped and here you will be able to make the most of what is left of the evening as well as enjoying the following morning. You can also take advantage of your stay to visit Llívia, or some of the other towns in the area, where you can spend a pleasant evening and have dinner.

After breakfast at the hotel you can play padel, take a dip in the swimming pool, or relax in the garden or the lounge. You might also like to explore the marvellous surrounding countryside and before the day is over, how about skating on ice or game of curling?
