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.

    This is the shortest tour that we offer.  It is ideal to be done in half a day.
     
    It leaves Burricleta (at the Puigmajor farmhouse) and it takes you to Sant Boi de Lluçanès, and then returns to Burricleta by another route (circular tour).
     
    We suggest that you take your time and enjoy the beauty of Sant Boi de Lluçanès, its gastronomy as well as its artisanal products that you can find in the bakery.  The Roure de la Senyora is also worth a stop to recover your energy.

    Tour 8 is an easy one.  70% of it is on farm tracks and tarmac roads with little transit.  The farm track has been recently repaired and has good drainage which makes the tour a good one to do during rainy periods.  If we also explain what's happening in the great pine forests, you'll agree that it's a great tour for mushroom enthusiasts.

    This is a tour that goes around the Serra del Molar, crossing Rec del Gorg Negre and the Rierra Gavaressa river twice.

    It makes a triangle between Perafita, Santa Eulàlia de Puig-Oriol and Sant Martí d'Albars, passing through la Blava and Beulaigua.  The tour is generally over dirt tracks and the tarmac part has very little traffic on it.

    The maximum steepness is 17% for a few metres and with the burricleta can be done without too much effort.

    We recommend that you take your time and enjoy the landscape and if you can, the gastronomy of the area in Perafita and in Santa Eulàlia.
