Discovering the Wild Landscapes of Southern Spain

Our exhilarating MTB holidays promise to take you on an unforgettable journey through the stunning landscapes of Western Andalucia. Starting with a night's stay in the vibrant city of Malaga, we embark on an epic adventure through the rugged terrain of the region, exploring some of the best trails and routes that Andalucia has to offer.

Our first day's ride takes us to Ronda, a picturesque clifftop town that will be our base for 3 days. As we make our way towards Ronda, through undulating hills and valleys, we enjoy breathtaking views of unspoiled countryside and the mountain sierras that surround Ronda.

For the next three days, we explore the rugged terrain around Ronda. Our expert guides lead us through rocky mountain paths, long descents and winding trails, as we soak in the awe-inspiring vistas of the natural landscapes around us. We pass through quaint villages and hamlets, where we can stop for a quick break and experience authentic Andalucian cuisine.

Our final day's ride takes us through the Sierra de las Nieves National Park, a protected area of rugged mountains. This is a unique and unforgettable mountain biking experience, riding remote tracks through pine and cork oak forests, with fabulous views throughout. Our ride culminates in a long descent to the beaches of the Costa del Sol, where we can relax in the warm Mediterranean sun. Our final night is spent on the coast, where we can unwind and reminisce about the exciting journey we have just completed. The next day, bid farewell to your fellow riders and take with you the memories of a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

e-MTB riders welcome

We love how electric bikes have allowed more people to enjoy mountain biking. e-MTBs allow any rider to extend their limits and tackle hills that they could not on a regular MTB. If you are not sure about your bike fitness, please ask about using an e-MTB on our holidays.

If you are a seasoned eMTB rider, we can create group e-MTB holidays, with an itinerary of superb, e-MTB-specific rides.

Read more.....We ride electric mountain bikes on more challenging rides and have a specific range of rides designed for the e-MTBs with longer distances, more technical sections and ascents that we normally avoid on our regular mountain bike rides.  The choice of an electric mountain bike really opens up a whole new world of mountain biking in Spain, the mountains and natural trails become a bigger playground for avid mountain bikers.
