Panoramic E-Bike Tour of Barcelona and Montjuic Historic Hill
Duration: 3 hours Easy Unique Views of Barcelona
Why we love this tour
Discover Barcelona from above using electric bikes. Incredible views, rich history and fun, easy cycling. This tour is a gem.
- Tour a unique side of Barcelona
- Easy-going and fun electric biking
- Breathtaking panoramic views of the city and coast
- Rich culture and history
- Notable venues such as the Olympic stadium or Plaça d’Espanya
The hill of Montjuic is Barcelona’s cultural and historical treasure. Covering the whole area by e-bike offers a new dimension to discovering the city.
We start our tour on state-of-the art electric bikes usually in the afternoon. The electric support helps us climb the 173-meter hill for a fresh perspective. However, the bike doesn’t do all the work! As you still have to pedal, the tour keeps you moving. Your reward is extraordinary sights over the city and the Port of Barcelona.
We cruise to castles, fortresses, green parks and gardens, and the Olympic stadium. En route, we also see the Christopher Columbus Monument, the Drassans, the Para-lel, the Plaça d’Espanya, Cactus Gardens, and much more.
As we cruise during the 3-hour tour, the guide covers the extensive history and culture of the hill. Serving as a fort from the 17th-19th centuries, Montjuic is full of politics, battle stories, and noteworthy architecture. With so many highlights to cover, it’s no wonder we need an e-bike!
A popular first-choice for visitors, both the knowledge and the views from this e-bike trip show you the capital of Catalonia in a new light. The tour is one of our gems, just like Montjuic itself.

Great guide (Dilan). Good explanation what we should and should not do. Despite the size of the group, he paid attention to everyone. After the kayak and snorkeling we got a lunch; a fresh, half baguette with good and lots of toppings. The guide made pictures, can't wait to see them😉😊

I am so happy that I opted to do this off-beat /outside Barcelona activity .The hike from the beach ,along the cliffs was breathtaking with an unrestricted view of the Mediterranean Sea.I have no words to describe the calm and tranquil feeling that enveloped me to look out into the horizon.We had a chance to swim and refresh ourselves in a sample bay beach.Post that,we went snorkelling .I was very thrilled to unexpectedly bump into so many fish schools (not complaining of this traffic jam 😊).Needless to say,this experience was this amazing because of our guide Eduardo who led the way ,told us many trivia along the hike trail and let us enjoy in the water for as long as we wanted .I totally recommend this excursion if anyone wants a day to experience the Spanish beach life away from the city and get that awesome tan.

Really everything was fantastic and well organized. I loved our leader- Edu, and felt like he explained everything very clearly, but also succinctly. His kind leadership was evident when two women were struggling with their boat- he quickly tied the rest of us together and gave them a quick lesson- and soon they were integrated back into our group. We were a good size group and I felt like I got the attention I needed. The snorkeling was beautiful and the time at the end to hang out was nice too. The only thing I didn’t love was the food- I don’t eat ham and was overloaded on cheese and bread- but we had brought along food so it was fine. I would have liked paella or a salad. Thank you!

WOW, Amazing trip. Paco was a gem of a guide and we just loved how clean the water was on our trip there. Highly recommended. We swim a lot in NZ, and this was just as good to us as the coromandel. Thank you PACO we loved it all including the funny stories. G And R Braks

The trip really lives up to its reputation. We had an amazing time kayaking and snorkeling, the team was so friendly and helpful I can definitely call it a one of a kind experience. The service provided was exceptional and would definitely do it again when I am back in barcelona. Your service is highly appreciated and will be recommended to family and friends who visit barcelona and want to take part in such experiences. I want to thank you for your concern, and for your help with booking this trip. Kind regards, Hagar Rezk
