Are you coming to Costa Dorada ? Have you been before ? You may know the costal resorts of Salou, Cambrils and La Pineda but there is a whole new experience waiting for you in the Montsant Mountains. This is the true Cataluyna! Away from the purpose built, commercial tourists resorts. Let us share with you the jewel in the crown of this region.

Come and join us on Tripadvisors number 1 excursion! And discover the unspoilt villages and breath-taking mountain scenery.

Both of our half day excursion are fully guided and include transportation to and from the resorts.

It’s harvest time at the moment and the Vineyards are busy gathering their crops to make their award winning wines.

Join us on our half day Grape Escape excursion which puts you in the heart of the Monsant wine growing region. Start your day with some olive oil tasting. Enjoy a short easy 10km, Downhill bike glide, with fabulous scenery, finishing at an eco-friendly family vineyard where you can experience them harvesting the grapes and taste 3 of their award wine wines.

If you would like to enjoy more downhill cycling, without the olive and wine tasting, then the Half day Downhill Bike glide is perfect for you. This is a different route, around 22km of safe and easy cycling on quiet safe tarmac roads, with spectacular views of the region.

Enjoy the thrill of freewheeling, smell the wild herbs and flowers, hear the birds singing their mating songs and see the majestic eagles soaring above your head.

Come and experience a different side of Coasta Dorada – you won’t regret it. Book now on our website.

The weather is fabulous! Spring has not disappointed us. The wildlife and blossom are full of life and colour - the mountains look like an artist's canvas.  The temperatures have been in their low 20's, with an early morning mist, which is amazing to drive through, on your way to the start point. We are looking forward to welcoming the Thomas Cook, First Choice and Thomsons reps on board shortly - for another great season. Thank you to everyone who continues to rate us as the number 1 excursion on Tripadvisor. If you haven't yet experienced the excursion, book with us on-line now to save disappointment. We can't wait to meet you and share with you, some amazing memories!   

The 2019 season is only weeks away! We have been enjoying beautiful spring sunshine with temperatures in the 20's. The almond & cherry blossom is spectacular and the routes are filed with white and pale pink flowers. During the winter we have been looking at new routes and experiences. We are happy to announce a new excursion "The Grape Escape". Our award winning half day excursion is still available and bookings for the summer are already coming in. However, if you prefer a shorter and different Downhill bike route of approx 13km, still providing you with amazing scenery, but finishing at a family run vineyard in the heart of the Montsant wine region, then come and join us! Here you will discover how they pick and press the grapes, to make their fabulous wine. BUT the best part, is tasting 3 of their most popular wines, together with Mother's Garden, award winning olive oil from the farm next door!  Mother's Garden is owned and run by Martin Kirby and his family. Their journey to restore this once forgotten farm and it's ancient olive trees, is well documented in the Channel 4 series "No going Back" together with his books "No going Back" and "Shaking the Tree"  https://www.amazon.co.uk/No-Going-Back-Journey-Mothers/dp/0751535486. We can't wait to be reunited with our "repeat offenders" and new customers, looking to do something different and escape the bubble of commercial tourism. There is a whole new world waiting for you to discover, away from the beaches, in this beautiful national park. Don't miss it!

Riudecanyes, is a beautiful old rustic village which settles in the mountains of Catalunya and is one of villages we visit on our Thursday All Day bike ride. Last week saw their annual village fiesta known as the Tasta Verde ( Green Taste ) and represents the taste of all the amazing local produce. They are well known for their awarding winning olive oil, hazel nuts and aromatic Arbequina olives. Come and join us on our Thursday All day excursion and experience your own Tasta Verde!
