Itinerary

Day 1:

Arrival in Malaga - La Herradura

Arrival at Malaga airport and transfer to La Herradura. Your motorbike will be waiting for you directly at the hotel. Introductions over dinner with Spanish wine will give us an opportunity to discuss our tour.

Day 2:

La Herradura - Cabo de Gata [280 km/174 mi] 
We will warm up our motorbikes along the coastal road before we enjoy the first stretch of bends on this tour in the Sierra Nevada foothills. The winding roads continue through the Sierra de Gator. The ride will offer magnificent views of the Mediterranean on our way to the Cabo de Gata nature reserve.

Day 3:

Cabo de Gata - Rodalquilar - Las Menas [240 km/149 mi]
From Cabo de Gata, the tour takes us along the coast to the fascinating town of Mojácar, where we will take a much-needed break before riding on through the Sierra de los Filabres. This mountain range is not particularly large, but it offers endless winding roads, making it a paradise for motorcyclists across Spain!  

Day 4:
Las Menas - Cazorla
[260 km/162 mi]
Through a valley plain, we ride north to the Sierras around Cazorla and Segura, where unique landscapes, incredible stretches of road, and endless biking pleasure awaits us. We will also drop by the remains of settlements built by the Romans and Phoenicans who once inhabited this region in centuries past.

Day 5:
Cazorla - Round trip Sierra Segura
[190 km/118 mi]
On our tour of the Sierras of Cazorla, Segura, and Castril, we relish the magnificent mountain passes and enjoy stunning views of this imposing mountain range. With a little luck, we may even have the chance to watch vultures on their landing approach in the canyon of El Chorro. This region is also home to eagles and ibex.

Day 6:
Cazorla - Granada
[250 km/155 mi]
Along the Sierra Pozo and the Rio Fardes, we head for Granada. Rising before the phenomenal backdrop of the Sierra Nevada is the one-of-a-kind Alhambra - the only Islamic palace complex to be preserved in its entirety - where we will spend the afternoon. In the evening, we will join the hustle and bustle of Granada, visiting some of the innumerable bars to sample delicious tapas, cool cerveza, vino, and fino in this fascinating city.

Day 7:
Granada - Sierra Nevada - La Herradura
[280 km/174 mi]
Our final touring day leads us into and around the Sierra Nevada. You will rarely come across such diversity and extremes in the landscape: snow at an altitude of 3,400 meters; a sea of blossoming almond trees in spring; large vineyards and fields on the southern slopes; and plains with magnificent panoramic views of the deep-blue Mediterranean Sea.
