Galicia – Camino de Santiago
A cycling holiday in North-Western Spain following the Camino de Santiago, a centuries-old pilgrim route, to the historical and religiously-significant city of Santiago de Compostela. The route leads you along green and fertile valleys, between breathtaking mountains and beautiful Galician landscapes. Along the way you’ll stay in charming accommodations in quaint villages.
This Andalusian cycling holiday leads you through some of the region’s most beautiful and unspoilt countryside. Enjoy exploring the wonderful Moorish city of Granada before cycling west through rugged, romantic countryside, punctuated with charming whitewashed villages to the historic cliff-top town of Arcos de la Frontera.
Follow the River Ebro from its humble beginnings in the foothills of the Cantabrian Mountains through rolling countryside, imposing canyons and unspoilt, seldom-visited villages to the famous Rioja vineyards. This is a cycling holiday where the dramatic, ever-changing landscape is as much a treat as the fine wines waiting for you at the end of each day in the saddle.
Cross Majorca by bike, riding from the beaches of the south coast to the nature-filled north on this wonderful cycling holiday. Stay in charming country hotels, usually two nights at each, enjoying a pleasant mix of circular and point-to-point rides through fantastic, island scenery.
