Cycling in Spain – Visiting Timeless White Villages
Leisure Cycling Holidays, Leisure Cycling Tours & Road Cycling Holidays
Our cycling tours and cycling holidays in Spain are the perfect way to explore the beautiful, unspoiled countryside of Andalucia, in southern Spain. Peaceful country roads twist and turn through stunning landscapes, passing white villages and historic towns, via mountains, forests and open countryside. We offer 1-day and multi-day leisure cycling tours, using hybrid bikes with excellent gearing to help with the hills. These leisure cycling routes are designed to keep riders away from traffic as much as possible, cycling on a mix of quiet roads and unsurfaced tracks. Our road cycling holidays offer more challenging riding using carbon-framed road bikes. Our guided leisure cycling tours are led by qualified guides and take a gentle pace along some of the loveliest routes near the town of Ronda. On our self-guided leisure and road cycling tours, the routes head further afield, cycling through varied, often breath-taking scenery and taking in characterful and pretty Andalucían towns along the way.
Walking in Spain – Slowing the Pace through the Mountains
Walking Holidays & Walking Tours
Our walking holidays and walking tours in Spain are the ideal way to discover the stunning, natural landscapes of Andalucia in southern Spain. The unique mountain scenery of the Serranía de Ronda and the nearby Natural Parks of Sierra de las Nieves and Sierra de Grazalema provide a Spanish walking experience that is a world away from that of the busy coastal resorts. This region remains quiet, peaceful and decidedly rural, with barely a soul on most of the trails. We offer 1-day and multi-day guided walking tours from Ronda, exploring the hidden pathways and tracks which criss-cross the rural landscape. Our self-guided walking tours follow ancient routes between pretty Andalucían white villages and uncover a part of rural Spain which few visitors get to see.
E-biking in Spain – Taking the Strain when the Going gets Tough
E-bike Tours & E-MTB Day Tours
Electric bikes have been a fantastic addition to the worlds of cycling and mountain biking. Less frequent cyclists can use e-bikes to remove any worries about coping with lots of hills or tackling long distances. Intermediate and experienced mountain bikers can use e-MTBs to improve their technical mtb skills, helping them to master riding on rocky and uneven ground, over roots and ruts and along technical trails. In other words, e-bikes are fun for the young and the old, for beginner cyclists and for experienced riders, for those who are feeling a little out of shape and also fit riders who want to tackle more. However you class yourself, we have an e-bike ride or e-MTB ride to suit you. E-bikes can be used on any of our cycling holidays, day trips and cycling tours and we also have some specific e-bike rides.
