With more than 2,000km of stunning traffic-free roads and a year-round mild Mediterranean climate, Spain’s Costa Daurada region is probably the best cycling destination in the Med.

One hour from Barcelona by car – and just 35 minutes by high-speed train – the region’s low rainfall creates perfect conditions for cycle holidays and training trips alike, with superb routes ranging from coastal rides to high mountain challenges.

Specialist operators, bike-friendly accommodation, superb wine, food, culture and opportunities to try a host of other adventure sports will all combine to make a trip to remember!



The beautiful Tarragona coastline of the Costa Daurada is the gateway to the country roads of Montsant, the Prades mountains and Els Ports Natural Park, Cambrils, Mont-roig del Camp and the vineyards of Priorat. Choose from eight self-guided road routes to explore the beautiful landscape of this stunning region.

In the Prades Mountains, north of Tarragona, the 108km Ruta del Cister connects three world-renowned Cistercian monasteries: Santes Creus, Santa María de Poblet, and Vallbona de les Monges. This is just one of three highlighted MTB routes that help you make the most of the region’s unspoilt wilder side.



The Costa Daurada cuisine is full of Mediterranean flair, with two Michelin-starred restaurants. Superb wines, in particular the famous Priorat label, make this a great area for wine-lovers. Thanks to its six ‘designations of origin’, including party favourite Cava, the Costa Daurada is home to wonderful vineyard tours.
