Overview
Leave behind the bustle of the Catalonian coast, and explore the region’s mountain scenery, picturesque vineyards, and petite villages, on this half-day biking tour. Meet at a convenient location in Salou, and head out of town via air-conditioned minibus. Upon arrival, get comfortable with your bike before setting off on an exploratory, downhill ride through Serra de Montsant Natural Park and its unspoiled scenery. All biking equipment is provided, and this beginner-friendly tour is accessible to cyclists of all skill levels.
What to Expect
Once our guides have collected you in our air-conditioned minibuses you will arrive at our traffic-free practice area and be allocated a bike, HIV vest and helmet. After a short practice session to get you familiar with being back on a bike we will make the short 25 minute journey to the stunning mountains which surround the commercial resorts.

When we arrive the bikes are unloaded and and after a brief introduction of the route the first freewheel begins. 1 of the minibuses will set off on this 7km route which will take you through the tiny village of Pradell, with it's communal village washing area and quaint church. Exiting the village, you will cycle past the ancient olive trees and local farms, and enjoy the shade of the forest, before freewheeling through the vineyards, of this award winning region. Smell the wildflowers and hopefully see the majestic eagles soaring above your head, before stopping at the railway station in the next village. Here we stop for about 10 minutes to allow everyone to re-group and provide you with a refreshing drink of mountain spring water aswell as having the opportunity to purchase locally produced snacks.

The bikes are reloaded and you'll jump in the minibuses to our next destination, approximately 10 mins away to begin stage 2 of your downhill bike glide. Beginning stage 2 of the 14km glide will take you through Priorat, well known for it's rich full bodied red wine. You will see beautiful rock formations and have breath taking views of the coast as you see more local villages and culture. We finish below the ancient Ermita of the Mother of God. A short 1km more, completes the bike ride in the lovely village of Mont Roig.

The bikes are loaded and we will return you to your resort. Throughout the excursion your guide will entertain you with stories about the regions rich history and culture! Don't miss out on doing something different!

FANTASTIC!!!

On holiday with my husband and two teenage boys, this has been the highlight of our trip. Loved getting out of the resort into the ‘real’ Spain, enjoying the fresh air, the scent of the pines, the sea breeze and the chirruping of the cicadas....More
