8 days / 7 nights
Even during the winter months Andalusia can offer perfect riding conditions, warm sun and mild temperatures of around 20 °C are to be expected.
Enjoy the natural beauty of Andalusia on one of the many serpentine roads which weave their way between mountains and sea. In the surrounding regions of Málaga you can find some of the best biking roads around, fantastic mountain passes and costal roads are begging to be explored.
No matter if it’s the Sierra Nevada, Sierra de Chaparral, Sierra de Contraviesa, Sierra Tejada, Sierra de Gator or the Alpujaras they all have one thing in common, they all seem like they are tailor made for motorcyclists. Time and time again we will be reminded of the Moorish culture which is still evidently present in this part of Andalusia.
We’ll spend 4 nights in very good and comfortable 4 star hotels in the surroundings of Málaga and 3 nights in an exquisite 4 star hotel in the Cabo de Gata nature reserve.
Arrival at Malaga airport and transfer to the hotel. Introductions over dinner with Spanish wine while giving us an opportunity to discuss our tour.
Today is all about the exhilaration of riding. On our way to Antequera we’ll pas through various nature reserves each offering its own unique riding experience. We shall head on to the gorge of El Choro and then on to the strange Sandstone formations of El Torcal. In the evening we’ll have a chance to relax with a cold drink in one of the many beach bars of Malaga.
We will cover the distance from Malaga to Granada on a beautiful panoramic road. From here we climb the peaks in the Sierra Nevada and rest in the White Villages of Las Alpujarras. That is pure Spain with panoramic viewes on the Mediterranean Sea and blue sky all the time.
Today we’ll make our way through the foothills of the Sierra Nevada (the Sierra de Contraviesa, Sierra de Gator). Endless curves and magnificent motorcycling routes await us as we head into the Cabo de Gata nature reserve where we shall spend the night in a beautiful 4 star Hotel. This region is defined by its mild climate and year long temperatures of approx. 25 -28 °C, which is good news for all you sun lovers.
On today’s roundtrip we shall discover the diverse beauty of this ancient Spanish region. Here “off the beaten track” other road users are few and far between as we make our way up the twisty serpentine roads of the Sierra des Filabres. As we pass sleepy little villages and marble quarries you could be forgiven for thinking that we are the only people on the road.
Today we shall discover the breathtaking beauty of the Alpujara Mountains. The excellent mountain roads take us up into the foothills and past countless mountain villages that time forgot. In Trevelez (the highest village in Spain) we can try the famous Jamon (ham). Well rested and with full stomachs we’ll ride back to the comfort of our Hotel at Cabo de Gata.
Today’s trip starts off in Nerja famous for its caves. After we’ve had our fill of Stalagmites and enjoyed lunch, we’ll head to the idyllic Spanish village of Frigiliana where every photo looks like a postcard. The next stage of the day is the road to Comares and Colmenar. The way back to Malaga takes us through the Sierra de Almijara which promises tight twistys and long sweeping bends.
We reserve the right to make minor changes to the tour.
