Girona, a paradise for triathletes

Girona, a paradise for triathletes

05.10.2023 Sport

The province of Girona is one of the best destinations in the world for training triathletes. Costa Brava and the Pyrenees combine the Mediterranean climate with a varied terrain and top-level facilities, three elements that make this area an essential destination for training and developing your full potential in swimming, cycling and running.


Mediterranean climate

The province of Girona boasts a Mediterranean climate, characterised by warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. 

The average annual temperature is 23 degrees Celsius; during the hottest months it can reach over 35 degrees, while the winter months can reach an average minimum temperature of 2 degrees.

These temperatures make it possible to maintain an active training routine without severe climatic constraints all year round, which is particularly beneficial for maintaining fitness even when it is not competition season.


Varied orography

Girona is a Catalan city strategically located between the mountains and the sea. Just 40 kilometres to the north are the Pyrenees, an imposing mountain range with spectacular scenery. And to the east it overlooks the stunning Costa Brava, which stretches along the Mediterranean coast from the town of Portbou to Blanes.

This privileged geographical position makes Girona an ideal starting point for all kinds of outdoor sports.

High level facilities 

Although the pleasant temperatures and the orography of the territory allow the practice of sporting activities for a large part of the year, it is essential to have sports facilities, not only to continue training when weather conditions prevent outdoor training, but also for the rest of the year. 

In these three towns in the province of Girona you will find infrastructures and facilities for practising the three sports disciplines that make up triathlon.


The city of Girona has an extensive network of secondary roads, tracks and trails where it is common to see professional cycling teams training. Explore some of the town's cycling routes or the most emblematic mountain passes in Girona!

And if you're looking for top-quality sports facilities in the town, the GEiEG (Girona Hiking and Sports Group) has an Olympic-size swimming pool, an athletics stadium and all kinds of equipment for physical work and recovery.


The town of Banyoles, in the north of Girona, stands out for having the largest lake in the province and also in Catalonia. The lake of Banyoles has a 500-metre long area reserved for swimmers and its surroundings, with 7 kilometres completely flat, are ideal for training for running. 

Club Natació Banyoles also has two heated swimming pools, one indoor and one outdoor, and a fully equipped fitness room with treadmills, elliptical and exercise bikes, weights and weight training machines with privileged views of the lake. 

Lloret de Mar

The town of Lloret de Mar, in the south of the Costa Brava, boasts an exceptional location on the Mediterranean coast. It has 9 kilometres of coastline where you can find several sea routes, a public network of marine paths with marked lanes for the practice of sports activities such as open water swimming. 

In the centre of the town you can find specialised municipal facilities and services for sportsmen and women, such as athletics tracks and a sports centre with a heated Olympic swimming pool and a fitness room.
