Cycling tour in Montseny Mountains

Montseny mountain is the perfect place for cycling, with solitaire roads to enjoy not only cycling but also climbing! We recommend doing the tour on a working day, as there is no traffic at all.
Montseny is really close to Barcelona (about 1-hour drive or train) and you can reach it from the big city, Barcelona, but also from the Barcelona northern coast (Calella or Pineda de Mar) and also from the famous Costa Brava. The highest elevation of Montseny is Turo de l’Home, at 1700 meters, which is one of the steepest roads in all of Catalonia. It is a real challenge for strong cyclists!
Nevertheless, you can reach other very interesting climbs, such as Coll Formic (1145 meters), Santa Fe del Montseny (1300 meters), Coll de Rebell, or Sant Hilari Sacalm. They are solitaire roads climbing the mountains in which you can enjoy incredible landscapes, especially in autumn. There is no traffic, the road is a smooth surface and you will find challenging climbs. What else do you need for a perfect cycling experience?

  • “Best cycle ever!” 

I came all the way from Australia to climb some proper hills and was not disappointed. Had only a day spare around a conference so needed to get to some good climbs, and quick. Claudio was superb, as he planned and adapted a route to my needs, picked me up from town, and introduced me to some remarkable fuet baguette’s in Seva.

Most importantly, he introduced me to some truly wonderful cycle not 1 hour out of Barcelona. Challenging, but manageable climbs, beautiful scenery, quiet roads (barely saw a car) all culminating in a magnificent 25 km descent off the top of the Montseny. Magnificent.”

  • “Claudio helped me to arrange the best cycling experience of my life”.

From the first time I contacted him until he brought me to the airport to return home, every detail of my trip was carefully arranged according to my requests. I spent ten days riding various loops in the Montseny mountains from a wonderful little hotel which he recommended. Claudio helped me arrange every detail: the bike, hotel, airport pickup, etc.

He grew up in this area and knows all the roads very well, then listened carefully to what type of experience I was looking for and custom-designed a biking vacation to suit me perfectly. Claudio is super friendly, speaks perfect English, and is just a great guy! I’m looking forward to seeing him again!

When we were supposed to be at a conference we took this amazing cycling trip. It was fantastic. Claudio was very patient with our multiple questions and the ride itself was unforgettable. I can heartily recommend using Claudio for any cycling related tour or plan.
