Experience the Barcelona Night Bike Tour with a dinner stop for tapas

We'll meet in the middle of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, the oldest part of the city, at Plaça St Jaume. This beautiful square is the location of both the town hall and Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya (Government of Catalonia).

We'll bike through the Gothic Quarter to the end of the famous Las Ramblas, where we'll find the Old Port of Barcelona. After telling you about its history from being built in the 1600's to the present day, we'll head over to another area of the old city of Barcelona, the Raval neighborhood. Once considered a rough part of town, it's now a cultural heart of the city.

Continuing on through the lively Eixample neighborhood, we'll find ourselves in Sant Antoni with its central daytime market and many bars and tapas restaurants. No evening in Barcelona is complete without tapas, so this is where we'll stop at a local tapas bar to sample some classic Spanish cuisine. (Food at the stop is not included, but you are welcome to get as much or little as you'd like).

Now that we've had our fill of tapas, it's time for the Magic Fountain show! This fountain was the centerpiece of the 1929 International Expo and continues to be the location of many important city events. We've timed it so that you will get to see the illuminated fountain show with music and mesmerizing lights. We'll enjoy some Cava (sparkling Spanish wine) together as we watch the Magic Fountain show at just the right time, reveling in the lights and sounds of Barcelona at night.

As we make our way back, you'll get to admire the illuminated old bullfighting ring and learn its new purpose since Catalonia banned bullfighting in 2010. You'll also marvel at Gaudí's famous Casa Batlló and its curvy lit up facade, looking almost other-worldly. This sits on La Manzana de la Discordia (the block of discord), a block of several modernist houses that seem to compete for the spotlight here at the epicenter of modernism.

We'll also see 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.

Our Barcelona Night Bike Tour makes for a perfect magical evening in Barcelona - You'll get a feel for the best parts of the city, eat tapas, sip Cava, see the Magic Fountain on display, and watch the city and its monuments light up the night.

FAQ

  • Expand/Collapse Where is the meeting point?

    Your tour meets at Plaça Sant Jaume in front of Costa Coffee. Look for your guide with a bike and Fat Tire Tours t-shirt, holding up a meeting point sign. The closest metro stations are Jaume I (L4) and Liceu (L3). Please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour departure.

    • Since other tours also meet in this same plaza, be sure to confirm that you are with the Fat Tire Tours group.
  • Expand/Collapse Are food and drinks at the tapas bar included in the tour price?

    No, the cost is not included for any food or drinks at the bar. You are welcome to get as much or little as you'd like! We suggest bringing cash in euros with you if you would like to purchase tapas or drinks.

  • Expand/Collapse What cycling skill level do I need for this tour?

    While all of our tours maintain a leisurely pace, we want our guests to have fun and be safe, so being able to ride a bike is paramount.

    Our Barcelona Night Bike Tour is perfect for intermediate bike riders. You should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. Most of this tour is on roads and although we stick together as a group and carve out a lane for ourselves, we ask that all guests feel confident with their riding ability. Safety is our number one priority but confidence in yourself is the first step to overall group safety.

    If you're not sure how you'll fare, we invite you to try our Barcelona City Bike Tour first.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for children?

    Absolutely! We welcome kids of all ages on our bike tours and we're a great family activity. We have several kid bikes in a couple of different sizes, as well as adult bikes equipped with child seats and child trailers in addition to plenty of kid-sized helmets, so we can pretty much accommodate anyone and everyone. We also have available child tandem attachments for those kids who are too big for the child seats and trailers, but still a bit too young to ride their own bikes through the city.

    • The cost of the child tandem attachment is the same as the discounted "kid" price for children ages 12 and under. There is no charge for the use of our child seats, child trailers and helmets.
    • Although Barcelona is extremely large, the area we bike in is very flat and our tours follow carefully selected bike-friendly routes. It is necessary, however, that any person participating in our bike tours have at least some bike riding experience, and should be comfortable riding in a group.

You’ll listen to entertaining and insightful, not dull and monotonous, anecdotes of Barcelona at every stop. Additionally, most monuments and museums are closed at night.
