See the city lit up with your own personal guide! Join us for a private Barcelona Night Bike Tour and experience Gaudí architecture, local tapas, and the Magic Fountain show. We’ve created a perfect itinerary for you and your family or friends so that you don’t miss a thing.
Beginning in the bustling Gothic quarter of Barcelona, your guide will meet you and help you pick out your bikes. We use comfortable city bikes that are great for all ages, and we have children’s bike accessories as well. Starting in the oldest part of the city (Plaça St Jaume) allows us to dive right into the history of Barcelona. The city’s town hall and Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya (Government of Catalonia) are both located in this historical square, and they serve as a great backdrop for us to kick off the tour.
From the Gothic Quarter we will cycle to the end of the famous Las Ramblas, where you will see the old Port of Barcelona. This area was made famous by Christopher Columbus, and we’ll point out the column that was constructed in his honor and fill you in on his ties to Barcelona. We will then make our way to the Raval neighborhood, which is the cultural heart of the city.
Our night bike tour gives you the opportunity to explore the very distinct districts of Barcelona. We will ride through the lively Eixample neighborhood to Sant Antoni; a popular daytime market with local bars and tapas restaurants. Speaking of which, this is the perfect time in the tour for us to dig into our own tapas. We’ve selected our favorite restaurant and your guide will fill you in on the classic tapas to try. (Food at the stop is not included, but you are welcome to get as much or little as you’d like).
Now it’s time for the Magic Fountain show! Having been the showstopper of the 1929 International Expo, it continues to be the nucleus for many city-wide events. The musical fountain and light show is a breathtaking experience, and we’ve timed it just right so that you can see it all. We’ll also enjoy some Cava (sparkling Spanish wine) together as there’s no better way to round out an evening in Barcelona.
Following the fountain show, we’ll cycle near old bullfighting ring which is now lit up at night. You will also have the chance to see Gaudí’s famous Casa Batlló and its picture-perfect facade. This area of Barcelona is the epicenter of modernism, and there’s no better time to visit than at night when the crowds have vanished and the the illuminated buildings seem as if they are dancing.
Not to be outdone, we will also admire the beautiful Palau de la Música (Palace of Music), the towering Cathedral of Barcelona, and the square of Sant Felip Neri, all basking in that nighttime glow. And all along the way, your private guide will help make this tour special for you and your loved ones. We hope that you will entrust us with your evening in Barcelona so that you can bike, enjoy tapas, sip Cava, and marvel at the Magic Fountains das the day fades to night.
