Holiday Information

Our objective in designing this itinerary is simple; to explore the best riding the south of Spain has to offer and package it together in one fantastic mountain biking holiday. In an area famous for the quality of the riding, we have sought out the most fun flowing trails and combined them with enough technical challenges to keep all levels of riders on their toes. The guides' view it as a collection of their favorite day rides from their 15-plus years of exploration in the area and are inviting you to come along and join them on this singletrack heavy, blast of a week.
Whether you're a regular mountain biker looking for some great fun and dry trails or an experienced rider looking for a week of challenging singletrack you will be fulfilled by this great holiday. While a moderate level of fitness is essential, we will use uplifts and transfers on some days to access trails that are otherwise inaccessible. Technical trails will be encountered every day but are all at a manageable level. Don’t forget that this is not a down-hillers week, you’ve got to earn your post ride cerveza, it’s only fair!
We’ll whisk you to 3 distinct areas in the Andalusian Sierras, within an hour and a half of Malaga airport and send you down some of the best singletrack you are likely to ride! Smooth and sweet, rocky and rooty, loose and steep, these trails have it all and even more. The regular rider who likes a technical challenge will relish the mountain traversing ancient mule route to Benoajan, the slick and fast Guadiaro valley, the endless switchbacks out of the Jimera mountains, the rocky chutes of El Chorro and blasting coastal trails of Tarifa.
The trails are typically Spanish and include ancient mule routes, remote mountain roads, switchbacked paths and the odd road section to join these trails together. Later in the week we get a chance to sample some of the extensive network of trails that have been developed and opened up around Tarifa recently. Some of these trails have been handcrafted to ensure maximum grin-factor for minimum fuss! These are the trails our guide’s ride in their spare time and they love showing them off to visitors.
We’ll visit a variety or regions across Andalucia, sampling the local trails and enjoying the diverse scenery, culture and food on offer. Our guiding team have unrivalled knowledge of the trails and will pick and choose rides that best suit the groups needs and abilities. We’ll be offering guidance along the way and our team are experts at coaching visiting riders about how to best ride their local trails.
Accommodation is in three unique, fantastic places chosen for their charm, friendliness and never-ending ability to dish out fantastic, delicious dinners.  Our first base is the playground of Ardales and El Chorro, with turquoise waters, a dramatic towering limestone gorge and myriad of wild trails, it will give a day of unforgettable biking and an ideal way to kick-start the week.
Next we head over Western Andalusia’s largest mountain range, the stunningly wild Sierra de las Nieves, on an epic day out that will see you riding amazing singletrack all afternoon to the beautiful hilltop town of Ronda, giving us chance to explore the Sierrania de Ronda and Grazalema ranges with the endless flow of the Guadiaro trails.
The finale of this fun filled week will be down on the Atlantic coast and the exciting town of Tarifa where we’ve put together our favourite local trails to celebrate in style.
