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.

So we started out trying to book the half day, which unfortunately was booked up. We were informed that another family had done the half day and enjoyed it so much they were doing the full day, so this persuaded us to do the full day - we were so glad we did!

The whole day was amazing, freewheeling downhill for 95% of the time, 1 or 2 easy inclines, my 13 year old daughter did these with ease, some lovely olive oil testing and a great meal and wine/beer at the end. Home made garlic bread, which I will be making like this from now on, thanks Phil!

Our 3 tour guides could not have been nicer! Very funny, informative and very very professional. I can not praise these guys enough.

This was probably one of the best trips we have ever been on in Spain and would definitely do it again in a heart beat!

Can't wait to see the photos you have taken.

Thank you guys for an amazing time.

Thank Karl G

Lovely, though at times terrifying activity! Beautiful scenery. Gorgeous sights and smells. Guides were charming, entertaining, encouraging and informative. Passionate advocates of Catalonia and sustainable tourism. They did all they could to keep us safe but a note of caution, this activity does require a level of competence and skill that ultimately proved beyond me. I completed 6 km of the ride before Rob, very kindly, advised me to continue the rest of the journey in the van. My husband and daughter completed the activity with ease. I would highly recommend this experience, particularly for those of you with teenagers who struggle to disengage from their iPads! It is one of the best things that we have done.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your great feedback. We really appreciate it. That's the great thing about having the support vehicles, you always have the option to jump in and do the rest of the excursion from the comfort of the minibus. Glad you all enjoyed it, thanks from the DHB team x

Had a great time with my 6 & 9 yr old. My 6 yr was on a tag on and loved it and my 9 yr old was on her own bike. We had a giggle. Tour was ace, informative and friendly. So much so, were going back for the full day!!
I'm definitely not the fittest person in the world, and glad that didn't put me off. Views were fantastic and time just sailed by as we free wheeled down the mountain!!!

Well done Rob and the team!

We had a wonderful trip and the staff/owners were lovely friendly people. We weren't looking for many trips for our holiday but when the lady explained it, it sounded really interesting and fun. It didn't disappoint.

We were picked up by a friendly guide and were driven up the mountains to meet the rest of the group. There were 4 guides, with the lead being Rob the owner. All were incredibly friendly, funny and helpful. We were given bikes that would be suitable for us and they tested our abilities, to ensure safety was met. My young son was of an age (8) where he can ride a bike on his own but has only just got a bigger bike at home so just getting used to one with gears. He tried on his own but was a bit wobbly. The first part was a shorter route so it was decided to give him a go. He managed it but it was obvious he was struggling a bit, as he kept getting distracted by the fantastic views. So they recommended a tag bike, which they were able to quickly sort out. As the second part was longer and a bit steeper, it was a good decision as you had to be more aware of the brakes. But they were great at giving him support and so encouraging to him, so that he still enjoyed the trip, as he was reluctant to go on a tag bike. He was then able to enjoy the fun of the downhill bike ride and enjoy the amazing views without having to worry about braking!

As adults, we really had fun and the guides were really informative. Safety was always important, which was reassuring to us. All the stages were explained well and it always felt safe and enjoyable. We went through a vineyard and Rob spoke so passionately about it, all very informative and enjoyable. We then rode through the small town which was lovely. There was then an optional tour at a winery, which Rob was able to translate for us. Again, he made it very interesting and enjoyable.

I would definitely recommend their trips. The staff were great, friendly, helpful and informative. The views were amazing and as it is downhill, it wasn't hard work. It lots of fun. Thank you to everyone
