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 (Costa del Sol) – Seville. Our route takes us via Antequerra (El Torcal nature reserve), Moron de la Frontera and finally through the Guadalquivir river basin to Seville. Seville is the capital city and heart of Andalusian culture, the focal point of bullfighting and flamenco and is undoubtedly one of Spain's most exciting and fascinating cities. We will have sufficient time to explore and experience this beautiful city.
Day 3: Seville – Zafra. From Seville our route takes us through the Sierra Morena nature reserve. In this diverse mountainous and hilly landscape endless fascinating roads wind through oak forests and pastures, past millions of flowers and magical lakes. The road takes on the contours of the landscape so that long-drawn bends and smooth asphalt makes our hearts beat just that little bit faster. We soon reach Extremadura, a region of Spain where history was written. America's conquerors came from Extremadura. Hernán Cortez and Francisco Pizarro brought Inca and Maya gold back to their homeland Spain, thus financing the construction of splendid palaces and impressive churches.
Day 4: Zafra – Trujillo – Caceres. Today our tour leads us to two further towns steeped in history, Trujillo and Caceres (UNESCO world heritage site). Trujillo, the birthplace of the famous conqueror Pizarro, is mainly renowned for its beautiful main square, the medieval fortress and city walls with seven gates. Caceres boasts an extremely well preserved old town with numerous palaces from the 14th century. Many consider Caceres to be Spain's most beautiful city and indeed its flair is quite unique.
Day 5: Caceres – Placencia – Gualdalupe. Caceres is definitely a city we could spend more time in, however, there are still many more fascinating things waiting to be discovered on our tour such as the Parque Natural de Monfragüe on the way to Guadalupe. The Monfragüe reserve, protected since 1979, boasts the largest and most representative Mediterranean forests. Impressive breeding colonies of griffon vultures can be seen on the rocky cliffs while the park is also home to peregrine falcons, hawk-eagles and eagle owls. Our accommodation for tonight is the Parador in Guadalupe. Guadalupe is particularly famous for its "Black Madonna", the patron saint of all Spanish-speaking countries.
Day 6: Guadalupe – Cordoba. On our way to Cordoba we pass through an area of particularly stunning scenery and crystal-clear lakes. Each of these once man-made lakes captivates through its own unique character. The time has now come to say farewell to Extremadura and its diverse beauty. Nevertheless, many magnificent stretches of road and the fascinating Andalusian city of Cordoba still await us. In the 11th century, Cordoba was one of the largest capital cities in Europe and today its cultural heritage epitomizes Andalusia.
Day 7: La Herradura, Granada. From Cordoba our route takes us via Granada over a breathtaking mountain pass to the start point of our tour - La Herradura. Over a farewell dinner we look back at some of the fantastic impressions of the past week.
