The Catalunya Traverse 2024

So, where are we riding?

Day 1: Depart central Barcelona for Allela

Embark on our journey from the lively heart of Barcelona, navigating through bustling streets adorned with historic architecture and vibrant neighborhoods. As we bid farewell to the urban landscape, the scenery gradually transforms to present a landscape filled with verdant hills. On the first day, we will welcome riders to our first hotel, kick things off with a welcome dinner and relax poolside.

Day 2: Alella - Montseny - Tossa de Mar

We'll journey toward the national park of Montseny. During the spring and autumn seasons, the landscape transforms into a breath-taking tapestry of greens or brown-hued leaves, making it one of the country's most picturesque destinations. As the afternoon unfolds, we'll transition toward the coast, arriving at the beautiful Costa Brava and the enchanting town of Tossa de Mar, where we'll spend the night.

Day 3: Tossa de Mar - Cap de Creus – Besalú

We'll ride through twisty and enjoyable roads near the sea, continuing our journey north along the Costa Brava. The incredible coastal road from Tossa to Sant Feliu de Guixols stands out as one of the most renowned routes in the Costa Brava. Next, we will proceed to Cap de Creus to view the lighthouse and the residence where Salvador Dalí lived in Port Lligat. Our lunch will be served at the restaurant of the Cap de Creus lighthouse.

Day 4: Ripollès - La Molina - Cardona

As we journey westward, the Pyrenees gradually begin to ascend. Our initial destination is the town of Beget, nestled within the heart of a profound valley. Our route will then lead us through two off-road sections, a splendid interlude amidst the Pyrenees' majestic terrain, adorned with breath-taking vistas. we proceed southward, traversing towards the town of Cardona. Here, our rest for the night awaits within the confines of its castle, a historic edifice that has been artfully transformed into a functioning hotel.

Day 5: Cardona - Penedès - Barcelona

In the morning, we will ride south to the famous Montserrat monastery, where we will make a stop for a visit at unique UNESCO World Heritage Site. Montserrat is a special place, characterized by its distinctive formations and the monastery nestled amidst the finger-like cliffs. Afterward, we will journey through the "Catalan Tuscany," the enchanting Penedès wine region where we will enjoy lunch at a vineyard. We will then begin our journey back into Barcelona.

Day 6: Departure from Barcelona

After breakfast we'll say our goodbyes and riders will depart for home.

About the Catalunya Traverse

Our Iberian Scramble guided motorcycle tours all start and finish in Barcelona, Spain. The Catalunya Traverse covers up to 1,000 km over six days on on mostly asphalt/tarmac. There are two optional sections where riders can test their off-road skills by piloting their bike through two beginner-friendly off-road sections over a mountain pass. Both sections are ‘big bike’ friendly, with the second being slightly rockier and steeper. Most the ride is twisty tarmac with significant elevantion change. This ride has been designed for those that really like to lean into the corners!

We kick off our rides at about 9:30am each morning and plan to return to our evening accommodation around 6:00pm each day with plenty of stops for coffee, lunch and off-the-bike experiences. You will experience a mix of landscapes and roads across the trip from twisty coastlines like the Cap de Creus road to the steep and windy sections of Montseny National Park. The roads conditions are typically very good and you should expect a mix of dual lane and single track roads. We will do our best to keep the ride off the motorways. On Day 3 you will get a taste of the Trails Traverse when we climb and cross a pass along the French and Spanish border. The gravel trail is well maintained and easy to ride. If taking your bike on gravel isn’t your thing, no problem. We alway have an alternative option. This ride does require an intermediate level of riding – the days are full and require the skill level to take on a mix of riding conditions. 

Bikerbnb Adventure tours take into account differing riding abilities – so if you have any concerns about the length of the trip, terrain or riding in a group – just drop a member of our team a message at and we’ll get you sorted.

On the Catalunya Traverse we will start our ride at Hotel Arrey Alella, which is located around 20 minutes from the centre of Barcelona. From there, we will then travel north west toward the national park of Montseny. 

We offer two types of accommodation packages: shared or single. At checkout, please specify if you prefer the shared or single supplement and if you are traveling with another rider or partner so we can plan accordingly. 

On The Catalunya Traverse, all accommodations are four star hotels. Expect warm and comfortable rooms and private washrooms. Dinner and evening drinks will typically take place in the hotel.

The Catalunya Traverse features Bikerbnb’s unique motorcycle-friendly accommodation. During the ride we will stay in hand-picked accommodation that is secure and especially suited for motorcycle travelers. On the Catalunya Traverse, we will stay in four star hotels. Each hotel will have a bar and restaurant, with some  featuring a pool and spa. 

We try to price our trips fairly to accommodate different budgets. The Catalunya Traverse takes a lot of consideration, planning, coordination and time! The knowledge and experience of the organisers is second to none and every detail is carefully collaborated. From unique locations, specialised kit, great food, support vehicle, insurance, content producers, chefs, and experienced staff, we offer an incredibly competitive product compared to other tour operators.

The route is designed to explore the best that Catalunya has to offer. It has been designed for intermediate riders who are comfortable riding twisty roads and have some off-road prowess.

While some sections will be more challenging than others, the ultimate goal is to go at your own pace and enjoy the beautiful scenes along the way. You may feel you want to push out of the comfort zone but we encourage you to ride to a level you feel safe and comfortable with. 

We aim to ride up to 200-240 kilometers per day. On the smaller twisty roads, we will allocate more time to enjoy the scenery!  We anticipate each leg of the journey should take approximately 5-6 hours of riding, with breaks in between for lunch and coffee. Evening meals are aimed to be served around 8:00pm.

Please do and shout from the roof tops! We like to post live updates from our social media pages throughout the experience. We will also create an online sharing folder so you can share your snaps with the rest of the group. 

Unfortunately no. We can only offer accommodation, food and support to those who have paid in full for the tickets in advance.
