Here you will hop on your safe and easy to use E-bike so that you may enjoy the natural beauty of this multi peaked rocky range. Electric power gives your natural stamina an extra energy boost to conquer dirt paths surrounding the fascinating Montserrat Mountain with comfort. The electric powered bike makes covering the trails easy! The guides will lead you on a beautiful exploration for approximately 2 hours.
Upon the completion of your excursion, your private transportation will return you to the city where you may further explore, or return to your hotel or cruise ship at your leisure and own expense.
