Bicycle tours are a great way to make family trips and explore the most beautiful routes in Spain. Unlike a trip by train or rental car, when you ride a bicycle you have a better idea of the terrain, the sights and smells, the history, the culture and the people.
When choosing the place to take a family bicycle trip, check if:
- The place has bike paths or quiet streets to drive.
- It is a flat or steep route
- Daily distances are short or long
- The tour offers the appropriate bicycles and rental equipment for a variety of ages
- The tour leads to pleasant sites or attractions, activities without cycling with rest days incorporated

The bicycle stations are everywhere, so the routes are full of creativity, although station 75, in the Plaza de San Francisco, is an ideal starting point. There are more than 200 km of bike lanes suitable and available for you to travel with your family. It is a unique experience to be able to explore the thousands of kilometers of quiet rural streets throughout Andalusia. A pleasant atmosphere, small groups, comfortable bicycles and expert tour guides make your bicycle excursions an unforgettable experience.
The tours for families in Costa Brava have a varied itinerary that combines coastal walks with hikes into the walled cities of the medieval hills. The delightful landscapes include beaches, castles and the spectacularly beautiful stretch of rocky coastline that inspired artists such as Salvador Dalí, Joan Miro and Pablo Picasso. Classified for intermediate beginners, the terrain is generally smooth for biking or relatively flat, with a few difficult climbs that can be easily overcome on foot.
