Tour Itinerary:

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 – Cabo de Gata. Along the coastal road we warm up our motorbikes before we enjoy the first stretch of bends on this tour as we head through the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The winding roads continue through the Sierra de Gator. Magnificent views of the Mediterranean accompany us on our way to the Cabo de Gata nature reserve.

Day 3: Rodalquilar – Las Menas. From Cabo de Gata the tour takes us along the coast to Mojácar where we take a break in this fascinating town. And we could well use this break as the Sierra de los Filabres lies ahead. This mountain range is not particularly vast, it is also not particularly high and it is not even particularly spectacular, but it offers endless winding roads making it a motorcycling paradise!

Day 4: Las Menas - Cazorla. 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 await us. We will witness past ages when we drop by the remains of settlements built by the Romans and Phoenicians who once inhabited this region.

Day 5: Cazorla – Round trip Sierra Segura. On our tour of the Sierras of Cazorla, Segura and Castril we relish the magnificent mountain passes and enjoy the stunning views of this imposing mountain world. 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. Along the Sierra Pozo and the Rio Fardes we head for Granada. Rising before the phenomenal backdrop of the Sierra Nevada is the incomparable 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 – Herradura. 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 m, in spring a sea of blossoming almond trees, large vineyards and fields on the southern slopes and plains accompanied time and time again by the magnificent panoramic view over the deep-blue Mediterranean Sea.

Day 8: Return journey.
