Meet at hotel in Granada, group orientation and a tour of the historic Alhambra Palace, a 700-year-old UNESCO World Heritage site. The time for the group orientation meeting will be finalized in your pre-trip letter. Please let us know if you will be arriving early and would like extra nights prior to the beginning of the tour.
After a short van transfer from Granada, we begin riding westward through undulating fields dotted with olive & almond orchards to Alhama de Granada. Ride: 73 km
Today’s stage zigzags through a region of fertile valleys and rocky promontories, ending with an unforgettable winding downhill with the Mediterranean in the distance. Overnight in Periana. Ride: 64 km
Rolling vineyards lead to our evening’s stay in a wonderful lodge near the stunning rock-capped plateau of Torcal. Ride: 69 km
A morning hike in Torcal Natural Park and a short afternoon ride on rollercoaster hills past the spectacular Chorro Gorge and on to our lodging near the shore of Guadalhorce Reservoir. Ride: 37 km
Starting with an easy spin along the shoreline of the Guadalhorce Reservoir, our route passes sleepy whitewashed hamlets and ascends amidst magnificent scenery to Puerto del Viento, the “Pass of the Wind.” Our lodging for 2 nights will be within the iconic white village of Ronda. Ride: 60 km
Today you are free to have a rest day or enjoy one of the many hikes in the area. Ronda is a well known destination for walking tours, so there are many routes to choose from.
We head north of Ronda, stop to visit an eclectic village built into a cliffside, and then cycle to the white village of Grazalema, nestled in a postcard perfect mountain valley. Ride: 59 km
Our final ride is an unforgettable route that takes us through the Alcornocales Natural Park and is a rollercoaster treat of mountain valley & ridge top riding with fantastic views in all directions. We overnight in the beautiful white town of Arcos de la Frontera. Ride: 65 km
After breakfast we say our goodbyes and depart for home or other destinations. We will arrange transfers to the airport in Jerez. If you would like to visit Seville, we can also arrange a transfer for an additional cost.
