Day 1: Arrival in Malaga. 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 while giving us an opportunity to discuss our tour.
Day 2: La Herradura – Ronda. We start off on the Costa del Sol heading towards Malaga. Riding up to the El Chorro gorge on long-drawn winding roads in the Sierra de las Nieves we journey on to Ronda. The town of Ronda is situated on a rock plateau and is split in two parts by a 160 m deep canyon. Ronda is also famous for Spain's oldest bullring which we will, of course, visit.
Day 3: Ronda - Tarifa - Conil. To the south of Ronda there are numerous small mountain chains offering an ever changing, spectacular landscape and roads that are simply made for our motorbikes. Bend after bend on asphalt surfaces for perfect bike control we experience spectacular views such as the Rock of Gibraltar, famous for its monkeys. Here we stop on a road offering panoramic views into Morocco which lies only a few kilometers away. We then ride along the Atlantic coast heading for Conil de la Frontera.
Day 4: Conil – Jerez – Arcos. We make our way to Jerez de la Frontera, the home of the world-famous sherry (Jerez wine), giving us the opportunity to visit a bodega and sample some of the excellent wines. Jerez is not only famous for its sherry but also for its noble thoroughbred horses. Arcos de la Frontera with its unusual backdrop on a rock ridge situated 160 m above the river Guadalete is considered to be one of the most beautiful white villages in Andalusia.
Day 5: Arcos – Antequera. Today, our route leads to Antequera, riding through wild mountainous countryside and canyons in the Sierra Margarita and the natural wonder of El Torcal, famous for its unusual and unique limestone formations. You will marvel at the stone sculptures created by nature along the spectacular road to El Torcal.
Day 6: Antequera - Granada. Although today's program is dominated by a visit to the Alhambra, one of the most important of Spain's cultural heritage sites, we still make sure we get our fair share of biking pleasure. Our route takes us over beautiful mountain passes, through olive groves, past poppy fields and lakes before approaching the high plateau of Granada.
Day 7: La Herradura, Granada. We leave Granada in order to fully enjoy the magnificent region of the Alpujarras. We take a break in the town of Guadix which is of particular interest because almost half the population lives in houses underground. The trip continues through the Sierra Nevada and the unique scenery of the Alpujarras to the highest villages in Spain. Away from the traffic with the Mediterranean Sea in sight we start our descent along the steep winding roads to our starting point of the tour - La Herradura.
Day 8: Return journey.
