Short Tour Description
Of course, we do not suggest that you start any illegal trade activities as this tour name suggests, although you will go deep into the wild mountain land of northern Catalonia. You will trace the steps of smugglers and outlaws that are known to have passed through this area for many years and took much-needed shelter within the mountains.
For centuries, the Pyrenees Mountain range has been both a border crossing and a hiding place. Smuggling across the mountain border and avoiding controls has been a regular human activity throughout history. Many of the paths that are used today for your enjoyment with the e-bikes were open to smuggle illegal products throughout history. This included art masterpieces during times of war and essential products during periods of shortage to name a few.
This route with e-MTB, which passes through the Catalan Pyrenean foothills and the Pyrenees Mountains is quite technical and physical, although it is made easier thanks to the support of your e-bikes. Going through high mountain forests, meadows and charming villages you will enjoy spectacular views and breath-taking landscapes.
