Holiday Information

This is surely the ultimate place to place mountain biking tour in Andalucia. With mountain biking in Southern Spain becoming ever more popular, this trip stands out from the crowd as a truly remote cross country journey. Getting away from the coast and into the mountains means we are unlikely to encounter more than an occasional other rider and will have these fantastic trails all to ourselves!
It’s a heady Spanish concoction, aimed at getting even the most seasoned mountain biker grinning. The riding during the tour varies from gentle flowing trails to technical sections that will test your mountain biking skills and endurance. The days are filled with fast trails, ancient roads, fresh mountain air and exciting singletrack meaning any regular off road rider with a good level of fitness should relish this challenge.
This adventure will take you from the Mediterranean through two UNESCO biosphere reserves and four Natural Parks, past the highest peaks in western Andalucia, alongside rivers and lakes, through olive groves, pine and oak forests, to finish at the white sands of the Costa de la Luz.
As we head north away from the busy Costa del Sol, the true ancient land of el Andaluz is reached; mountainsides dotted with white villages and surrounded by terraced land. You will experience southern Spain's hospitality, excellent mountain cuisine of stews, game and delicious cured meats and cheeses, not forgetting the fantastic seafood on offer when you arrive at the Atlantic. Accommodation throughout the week will be in tasteful and traditional small hotels situated in ancient Moorish castle topped ‘Pueblos Blancos’.
Biking highlights include the 1000 metre descent out of the Andalucia's Sierra de las Nieves, the thrilling ride through the terraces and olive groves to the Rio Grande, the challenge of crossing the Lifa pass, with its magnificent views down to Ronda and beyond, and the miles and miles of beautiful singletrack in the Guadiaro valley. Put all this together with the reasonably priced flights to Malaga and lashings of bright Spanish sunshine and we’ve come up with a beauty of a mountain bike holiday!
