Enjoy the views of Barcelona by bike!

We head to the hills of Barcelona, but don't fear, you don't have to climb the steep hills by bike. The subway and funicular take us in approx. 30 minutes to the hills at a height of 350 metres.

Bicycle path

From here we start enjoying the magnificent views of Barcelona while cycling comfortably through the hills.  Now and then we will have a pit-stop to be able to digest the panoramic scenes of the city and the sea with the assistance of a relaxing cocktail or a glass of mineral water; it's all up to you.

We return to centre following a downhill route that passes through posh Barcelona.


The tour starts at 10:00 am. The duration is approx. 3 hours from the starting point at subway station Liceu, including transport with the tube to the hills of Barcelona.

Tour difficulty

We follow normal paths according to Spanish standards. This implies that we can have some minor baches on our way and that you will have to mind the speed and your traffic companions when we go downhill. All in all this is a normal tour for the average bicycle rider.

The inner self

We recommend to bring something to drink with you and a snack, especially in the summer months.

On request we will bring some drinks and/or a lunch-kit. During the tour we will have the possibilities to have some drinks while enjoying the views over the city.

Starting point.

We start at subway station Liceu. This station is situated right in the centre at the Ramblas and is easy to reach for those who are staying just outside the city centre. You can take subway-line 3 (the green line) that passes central stations like Diagonal, Plaza Catalunya or Sants.
