How can I get there?

BY CAR: It’s the recommended option. In this area there isn’t public transportation, so having a car makes things easier!


BY TRAIN: the big and closest stations are GIRONA and FIGUERES (AVE or Central). From GIRONA or FIGUERES CENTRAL you can take a Rodalies train (covering shorter distances) and get to SANT MIQUEL DE FLUVIÀ.  This station is quite close to the festival venue, but not enogh to go on foot. You’ll have to get a TAXI. There is a taxi service in this area, you have to call 0034-625619120 or write an email to info@taxigomis.com.

If you arrive to FIGUERES AVE station, you’ll need to get a shuttle bus or a taxi to Figueres central station and then catch a train to SANT MIQUEL DE FLUVIÀ.


BY PLANE: if you arrive to GIRONA AIRPORT, you just have to get a transfer to the train station and follow the instruction above.

If you arrive to BARCELONA (T1,T2, you need to get a train shuttle to BARCELONA SANTS STATION and then go to GIRONA (and follow the instructions above) or go to SANT MIQUEL DE FLUVIÀ (and follow the instructions above).

If you have any doubts, you can contact us explaining where and when do you arrive and we’ll do our best to help you!
