Cycling Holidays in Spain

Spain is a rich and varied country when it comes to cycling holidays. The relatively low population means there is a lot of unspoiled countryside to explore by bike, it’s just a question of deciding which area appeals the most. Many will be familiar with the Mediterranean coastline and yes, this region offers a huge choice of cycling holidays but don’t discount the other, lesser-known regions of this wonderful country, each of which has its own unique flavour and appeal for cyclists.

Mediterranean Coast

The most popular region for leisure cycling holidays is Andalusia in the south of Spain. Here you can enjoy peaceful cycling on remote lanes and tracks through a beautiful, rugged landscape. Choose from a range of routes that take in historic, Moorish cities such as Granada and Cordova as well as the region’s famous white villages of Ronda, Olvera and Arcos de la Frontera. The undulating terrain means these cycling holidays are best suited to regular cyclists with a good level of fitness.

In Catalonia you can enjoy a short cycling break in the vibrant city of Barcelona or alternatively get out and explore the region’s delightful medieval villages and rugged coastline staying in some delightful boutique properties along the way.

Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands are very popular with leisure cyclists, offering a pleasant mix of scenic country lanes, warm temperatures, and some beautiful old towns. If you like to intersperse your cycling days with swim-breaks on gorgeous beaches then our cycling holidays on Menorca and Majorca will be right up your street.

Northern Spain

More and more cyclists are discovering the wide-open spaces, quiet winding roads and rugged green countryside of northern Spain. The wild, Atlantic beaches and verdant countryside of this beautiful lesser-known region reveals a different side to Spain from the busy costas further south. Follow the Ebro River through the hallowed vineyards and charming villages of La Rioja or explore the beautiful Atlantic coastline of Cantabria and Asturias, cycling through the regal Picos de Europa Mountains.

Galicia, in the northwest, is home to Santiago de Compostela, a city famous for being the finishing line for pilgrims who have started their journeys in all corners of the continent. It is also possible to cycle some of these routes and we offer two options, one starting from Astorga and the other from Porto in neighbouring Portugal.

Central Spain

Many agree that if you want to see the real Spain then you should head for the interior of the country and a prime example of this is our Segovia Cycling Holiday. Here you will discover ancient, beautifully preserved towns and gorgeous rustic villages all set amidst breathtaking scenery far from any well-trodden, or pedaled tourist trail.

In Extremadura you can enjoy a very different kind of cycling holiday, exploring medieval towns each day and spending each night in unforgettable Paradors – unique, converted palaces, monasteries and castles.

Canary Islands

Lanzarote’s fine network of smooth quiet roads and year-round warm temperatures attracts cyclists from all over Europe, particularly in the colder months when cycling on the continent is less than appealing. Our 7 night leisurely tour reveals the island’s many different sides, from quaint traditional villages in the interior to amazing sea-views from cliff-top vantage points. You’ll also cycle through a volcanic national park and spend a day exploring the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura.

We offer one of the widest choices of leisure cycling holidays in Spain so get in touch today and let us help you plan your Spanish cycling adventure.

Easy:
Our easy cycling holidays offer short daily rides on mostly level terrain.

These rides are particularly recommended for newcomers to cycling holidays and for families.

Leisurely:
Our leisurely cycle holidays will suit those who are reasonably fit through regular exercise of one kind or another – not necessarily cycling.
