Sports Tourism

Two of the towns in which we have hotels, CALELLA and LLORET DE MAR, are certified SPORTS TOURISM destinations. This means that they have a number of sports facilities that anyone can use, either for sports breaks, training, competition or just general recreation. Catalonia, and especially the Costa Brava and Costa Barcelona - Maresme, are privileged sites for the practice of bicycle touring, which involves cycling without competitive spirit, using the bicycle as a mean of physical exercise, fun, transportation or tourism. Great weather, beautiful landscapes, mountain, beach, and a comprehensive network of routes make Catalonia an ideal place for cycling. 

Sports Tourism

Calella is known as a TRIATHLON & BTT TRAINING RESORT and has ideal conditions for athletes who are preparing for triathlons. It is also the town that every year holds the IRONMAN 70.3 (in May) and the IRONMAN  (in October). There are also athletics tracks, a football pitch, a covered sports hall, table tennis facilities, an Olympic-size swimming pool and the indoor Municipal swimming pool, as well as various Pitch & Putt ranges and golf courses nearby. We also have a sailing school where one can learn and practice all kinds of water sports. In the summer, several tournaments are held on the beach, such as beach tennis, beach handball, beach volley ball, and so on. All this makes it a perfect place for playing sport.

LLoret de Mar also has a wide range of sports facilities open to anyone who wishes to use them and the town also organizes championships and sport sessions. There are also golf courses nearby. Some of the main sports events held in recent years include: Football: MIC: Mediterranean International Cup Cycling: Vuelta España, Volta Catalunya, Setmana Catalana, Tour de France 2009 • Roller Hockey: Copa del Rey 2006, Hockey League, Copa CERS Athletics: Specials Olympics, training sessions of the Spanish Middle Distance Athletics Federation Motor: Costa Brava Historic Rally.

The other towns in which there are GHT Hotels, although they may not be certified as such, also have nearby sports facilities such as golf courses and pitch & putt ranges, making them very attractive to fans of these sports.
