Tour d‘Oli

Every Tuesday and Friday

Another great way to discover the real Catalunya up close.

This tour takes you on a 18 km trip through the Costa Dorada mountains, along a reservoir and through a typical Catalan village. In this village you will have the chance to learn about the olive oil making process in an olive museum. There you will have the opportunity to try the exquisite olive oil of the Cooperativa of the village, winner of many national and international awards. Afterwards you can buy this oil or some other local products in the shop of the Cooperativa. We finish the trip by visiting the local bar across the street to take a nice cold drink and a friendly chat. Come and join us on this amazing experience. Maybe a bit more active cycling involved then in our other tours, but truly spectacular views.

 

Pick-up

Our pick-ups will start around 9:00 am and you will be back around 14:00.

We will collect you from various meeting points, in the resorts of Salou, Cap Salou, La Pineda & Cambrils. The exact location  and time will be given to you in the confirmation mail.

Practice & Safety Session

We appreciate the vast majority of our customers haven’t ridden a bike for a while and we want to give you the opportunity to get back on a seat!

Once we have collected you we will take a short 25 mins drive into the mountains to our practice area on a closed off road. During the drive, your driver will entertain you with their knowledge of the region’s history, culture and life style. Once we arrive your guides will assign the right bikes to you and you will have the chance to try them out before you start the free wheeling fun.

Free wheeling fun

Once you have completed the practice session you will start the decent on our first stage, and a famous stage it is. The road we are taking is part of the World Ralley Championship which comes to the Costa Dorada every October. So enjoy the beautiful scenery and get a feel of how exiting it must be to navigate these route in a small fast moving car!

The second stage takes you 12 km down a beautiful winding road with amazing views. Underneath an impressive viaduct, past a reservoir you will cycle into the quaint village of Riudecanyes. There we will visit the museum of the local cooperativa to learn about and to try out their award winning olive oil. In the shop you can buy some local products, most of all the truely fantastic oil.

We finish the tour with a nice drink* in the local bar across the road. A truely unique experience.
