Route 6 – Santa Susanna – Lloret de Mar – Vidreres – Sant Hilari

The route crosses the delta of the River Tordera and enters the district of La Selva. It first takes in the southernmost end of the Costa Brava, home to the popular and lively town of Lloret de Mar, with its extensive range of hotels and leisure opportunities for tourists. It then heads towards the inland part of the district, entering the verdant woodlands of the Guilleries, so dense and extensive that a century and a half ago they still provided a hideaway for groups of bandits and warriors left over from the Second Carlist War. Mention should be made of the climb up to Lloret Blau (3.5 km with inclines of up to 16%) and the climb up to Sant Hilari Sacalm (26 km with inclines of up to 10%).
