the rural  electric bike
autoguided tours with GPS, with audio content

The tours are the spirit of the Burricleta experience.  They fit in with and respect the surroundings and the local society as well as offering the opportunity to learn about the local culture and  heritage.  The steady pace of the electric bike allows you to travel over long distances effortlessly and reflect about what you are experiencing as all the tours go through amazing landscapes, away from the tarmac and the crowds.

All the centres offer tours which are designed to be enjoyed.  They cater for all levels of proficiency and difficulty and length of time.  The authentic burricleta tours are SELF-GUIDED with an easy to use GPS which will guide you around so that you’ll never get lost.  From time to time the GPS will explain about the cultural and artistic heritage that you will come across along the way.  At Burricleta, you can also find conventional guided tours or burricletas to go on signposted routes.

The burricleta tours will take you through the most interesting and outstanding places of the region that you are visiting.  You will discover hidden corners that you wouldn’t easily find in the official guide books or by following marked footpaths.

How long the burricleta tours take depends on your pace.  Don’t worry about time, we’ll always be waiting for you.  To help you plan there is a minimum time and an average time indicated on the information card for each tour.

The foal (low) level tours are very easy and fun, with all the family in mind.  The jenny (high) level tours take you further away and allow you to discover new places.  These suit couples and more active burricleta riders.

    At this moment, and due to the heavy rains of Octoer, this tour is not available. 

    This tour allows you to visit the old farms of the Monestir de Poblet de Milmanda i Riudballa monastary as well as the town of Vimbodí i Poblet, where you can go to the Museu del Vidre glass museum. 

    During this tour you can get to know and visit some of the most emblematic farms of our region, as all were owned by the monks of the monastary from the 12th century.  There are however some references to them as being inhabited before this.  If you let your imagination go, you can relive some of the moments in history that have made a mark on us today.

    Just before you get back to the starting point, the tour also brings you close to the Monestir de Poblet monastary.
