8 Day Andalusi Classico

Andalucia distinguishes itself from the rest of Spain due to its spectacular climate (300+ days of sunshine per year anyone?) and its unique Moorish history, based on an Arabic presence that lasted mostly harmoniously for close to 8 centuries. This tour will offer you some of the best experiences, both biking and otherwise, that Spain has to offer.

ANDALUSIA 8 DAY TOUR

  • There will be no shortage of outstanding twisty roads including those found in the Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra Nevada mountain ranges.
  • All roads are in excellent condition and there is very little traffic.
  • Accommodation will be welcoming and comfortable, including stays in paradors: castles, palaces and fortresses converted into motorcycle friendly hotels.
  • This tour is the perfect getaway, combining wonderful riding with great gastronomy and culture. And did we mention that sun almost always shines?
  • Besides the stunning natural scenery along the way, there is plenty to discover off the beaten track with plenty of picturesque white villages and fantastic towns where Moorish and Spanish cultures have melded together.
  • The journey offers complete motorcycling pleasure on tranquil, winding, mountain and coastal roads. The roads throughout the entire tour are asphalted, and we will stay off dirt tracks unless a group specifically asks for a taster of some of the brown stuff.

You will enjoy the historic Moorish cities of Sevilla, Granada and Cordoba, see the Mediterranean from the unique viewpoints of the Cabo de Gata Natural Park and ride through stunning “pueblos blancos”, the white hillside villages that Andalucia is famous for. It is a biker´s heaven. The fabulous roads, the history, the outstanding food: and those are just a few of the highlights of this tour.

Daily Itinerary

Day 1: Malaga – tour briefing and group dinner

Tour briefing and group dinner. We will collect you at the airport or train station and take you to the group hotel, where you can relax until our evening briefing. After an introduction to your fellow riders and chatting through bikes and organizational details, we will head out for a delicious Spanish meal to finish off the day.

Day 2 Malaga – Capileira (Highlights: Montes de Malaga, Colmenar, Sierra de Tejeda)

We head north through the Montes de Malaga then veer eastwards via some spectacular twisties in the Sierra de Tejeda towards our destination in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, Capileira. 3h47 / 198 km

Day 3 Capileira – San José (Highlights: Sierra Nevada, Cabo de Gata Natural Park, seaside!)

Contouring the southern edge of the Sierra Nevada in an easterly direction, we head towards the very unique Parque Natural Cabo de Gata and the pretty seaside town of San José. After some lunch, we’ll take to the dirt and make our way to the beach made famous by Indiana Jones Junior and Senior, la Playa de Monsul. 2h58/171km.

Day 4 San José – Cordoba (Highlights: Tabernas, Sierra Nevada, Granada, Alcalá la Real)

A day for heading back inland, visiting the “Spaghetti western” town of Tabernas as we head up through the Sierra Nevada and las Alpujarras to overnight in Granada, home of Andalusia’s most visited site, the Alhambra Palace. 3h44 / 230 km

Day 5 Cordoba – Sevilla (Highlights: Sierra de Hornachuelos and Sierra Norte)

For Granada to Sevilla, there’s a “high road” and a “low road”, so depending on how we’re all feeling today, we’ll collectively choose one or other of these options. We can stretch out the journey a little by heading further north into some of Andalucia’s lesser-known treasures, the Sierra de Hornachuelos and the Sierra del Norte. Either way, there’ll be plenty of time to get to know Andalucia’s capital Seville. 4h18 / 314 km

Day 6 Sevilla – Ronda (Highlights: Parque Natural de los Alcornocales, Sierra de Grazalema)

As crow flies, Seville to Ronda is just 100 km. But your guide today will take you some of the prettiest mountain terrain that Spain has to offer, including a selection of “pueblos blancos”, the white hillside villages that Andalucia is famous for. 3h25 / 203 km

Day 7 Ronda – Malaga (Highlights: Grazalema, Zahara de la Sierra, El Burgo, Ardales)

A final day that will make you want to come back! The Sierra de Grazalema, with its Griffon vultures soaring overhead, and views reminiscent of the Canadian Rockies as you head back to Malaga via El Burgo and Ardales. 3h39 / 181 km
