There is a network of viewpoints that will guide you to the different areas of the region.
Here are some proposals to decide your most personal way of getting to know the Penedés:
1. Trekking &hiking
Undoubtedly the most recommended and preferred way for lovers of slow tourism. The Penedés has hundreds of kilometers of routes, most of them well signposted to plan your excursion from north to south and from mountain to sea, enjoying the different natural areas at any altitude. You can go alone, in a group with or without a guide.
2. Biking (road, classic & e-bike, BTT, tandem)
This option offers proposals for all tastes. Many teams of road bikers are usually seen touring the territory making loops up to 150 km from the sea to the interior of the region with some medium mountains.
MTB-lovers prefer to ride cross-country, through vineyards and along forest or river paths. Penedés 360 is the perfect tool to guide you.
For those who prefer the traditional bicycle or e-bike, there are many routes designed between towns, wineries and places of interest. Finally, for retro-biking lovers who do not want to be separated for a moment, there is the possibility of organizing a tandem route.
We always recommend using one of the good services of professional guides and hosts who will take you to the best places and tell you about their experiences and the history and culture of the region.
