LA VUELTA IN ANDORRA

9th - 16th September

Join us in Andorra for La Vuelta a España!

Join us as we leave Sitges and head to the mountains for an unforgettable training camp in September and experience the showdown of arguably the greatest grand tour of them all! The final weekend of La Vuelta is always explosive and this year will be no exception taking place in Andorra. Before we watch the pros, we'll summit the majority of Andorra's climbs (and maybe venture into France and Spain) and get blown away by the stunning natural beauty. We'll be based at a mountain refuge at 1750 meters elevation, so expect to gain lots of fitness.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

 

Experience epic mountain cycling and the finale of La Vuelta a España all in a week of jam packed full of excitement!

We'll be staying at the Mountain Hostel of El Tarter, a beautiful mountain lodge located at 1750m elevation. Breakfast and dinner will be fully catered and mid-ride, we'll stop at a traditional cafe or restaurant for lunch.

We'll summit most of Andorra's 20 peaks during the week and even attempt the same route as stage 20 of this year's race. Expect to climb countless mountain passes and cols. Then, at the weekend we'll ride out to watch both deciding stages for the final weekend of La Vuelta a España.

We'll be staying at the beautiful and newly renovated Mountain Hostal El Tarter. Situated at 1750m above sea level, this modern lodge is an ideal base and a great way to get the full mountain experience.

The room configurations you can choose from are: rooms of four single beds, five beds or a private double room. If you're coming as a group we'll do our best to make sure you're all together.
