Owner description: Get out of the resort and into the real Spain. This beautiful National park is only 25 mins from Salou, but with no public transport so many people miss out on the stunning scenery. Free-wheel down quite tarmac roads through rustic villages, see cliff top monasteries, olive groves, vineyards and majestic eagles soaring above your head. Join us for a half day trip or the full day event to enjoy a unique fun & exhilarating day out. Anyone who's ever ridden a bike can do it - for the fit and the unfit. Come and join us for something different and take home some special memories of this fabulous region. Please NOTE: our excursion run from 1st May - 31 Oct each year.

“An amazing afternoon!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

This was a great way to spend an afternoon whilst on holiday in Salou. There were some magnificent views on the route and we were lucky enough to see an eagle! Rob, Simon and Yella were very thorough, good fun and knew a lot about the area. Would recommend taking a few Euros for the caramelised nuts as they are delicious.

Thanks again for a great afternoon.

“Repeat offenders”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

This is the second time me and my family have done the downhill biking in Salou and it has to be said it was still as exciting and enjoyable as the first year, if not better. We were picked up from our hotel in La Pineda by Simon, who was a warm and friendly person and interested in what you had to say. We picked up the remainder of the people and headed to the practice area, here there is huge emphasis put on safety and everything from your helmet, bike and bike seat is catered to be comfortable for you and also safe. Everyone was allocated a bike that was the right size for them and there was no random allocation of bikes. after leaving the practice area we were taken up to the mountains where there is stunning sights, our guide Simon gave us a detailed insight into the local area and gave us interesting historical facts about the local area and Catalunya. it really does make a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of Salou. the ride down the mountain can seem quite off putting to many but it is so relaxing and gentle. 95% of it is downhill and the rest is not bad at all. there was people on trip in their 70s who had the time of their lives, so dont be put off. the only bad thing about the trip is the fact the time seems to fly by and you fell gutted going back to your hotel. however, their is an all day option which includes a barbeque and drinks. the staff were absolutely superb and were unfaultable, the three were extremely funny and made the day thoroughly enjoyable, wouldnt have been the same without them. the other people on the trip were all very friendly also and the whole day had a friendly atmosphere.

“Great Day out”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Something different from pools and waterparks. Rob and Simon were great fun and informative about the local area. Great emphasis put on safety with a practice run first and familiarisation of the bikes. Me and my daughter (10 years old) had a great day. Rob was hilarious and never stopped talking!

“Money well spent ”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

I am away on holiday with my two year old and wife plus friends who have two young kids. We booked the full days ride. What can I say but awesome day out. The kids loved it and had smiles all day. The stop in the little Spanish village was really nice to see. The bar also does lovely coffee. Then the trip to the villa with food was awesome. Nice little touch to the day. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the day. Thank you guys for a wicked day like the first time we came. We will be back.
