Our cycling vacations in Spain

Cycling is a sublime, low carbon, way to explore Spain’s magnificent interior. For the pros there is varied terrain across Andalucia and the Gredos Mountains, steep climbs offering plenty of challenge, while Catalonia is ideal whether you’re in training, or bringing the kids. And depending on your preferences our Spain cycling vacations can be tackled as part of a guided small group or on a tailor made, self-guided tour. You’ll stay in locally owned hotels, and eat in small, family-run restaurants throughout, for an authentic taste of Spanish culture which also helps remote communities and their ways of life to thrive.

Map & highlights

Catalonia is a wonderful location for family cycling, as well as for pros looking for training (or recuperation) at a dedicated sports hotel. Foodies can look to the distinctive cuisine of Valencia to fuel their pedalling through vineyards, olive groves and rice paddies. If you’d like to cycle the famed wine region of La Rioja, you’ll start on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route – you can ride the entire way on trails adjacent to those busy with walkers. Segovia is ideal for center-based and cultural cycling vacations, while vacations in the Sierra de Gredos bring much-needed tourism to an undiscovered but spectacular area.
Camino de Santiago

1. Camino de Santiago

For a combined physical and spiritual experience, join a group tour and cycle the Camino de Santiago. Pilgrims set aside a month or two to walk this ancient route, but you can cover the Leon to Santiago leg on a bike in eight days, passing through the lush valleys, mountains, monasteries and farming villages of one of the world’s oldest pilgrimages. Vehicle support and a local guide smooth your way.
Catalonia, Mountains to Sea

2. Catalonia, Mountains to Sea

Experience varied Catalonia on a four-day ride from the Pyrenees to the coast, following the disused carrilet railway which once carried coal and iron ore down from the mines. Ride from Ripoll to Olot to Girona, ending at the fishing village of Palamos. On the way, enjoy the volcanic landscapes of Garrotxa, follow the Fluvia River valley and pass through deep forests, with the mountains always in the background.
Costa Blanca

3. Costa Blanca

Excellent, quiet roads in the interior plus many off-road trails leading into the mountains are just part of Alicante and the Costa Blanca’s appeal to cyclists. Add in the high quality rural accommodation on offer, gorgeous scenery, lovely spring and autumn temperatures and sun guaranteed for most of the year and it’s obvious why this is a brilliant destination for all ages and abilities.
Girona Province

4. Girona Province

Catalonia’s best cycling routes are clustered in the northeastern province of Girona, with the city of Girona or nearby villages making for the perfect cycling base. Ride out or get dropped at nearby trails, then explore the landscapes: extinct volcanoes, spring-fed lakes, prehistoric caves, rivers, sunflower fields and beaches – with manageable distances allowing time to relax in charming local villages and walled towns.
La Rioja

5. La Rioja

Make sure you balance your panniers with an even number of bottles in each, and try to spit every now and again, as you combine cycling with tasting sessions around one of Europe’s most prestigious wine-producing destinations. Self-guided routes are carefully plotted, taking you between rural B&Bs and 4-star hotels, often starting with a section of the iconic Camino de Santiago.

6. Segovia

Segovia is a land of knights, kings and queens, of Roman aqueducts, fairytale fortresses, and hairpin bends that delight both pro and semi-pro cyclists. The mountains and plains here offer plenty of challenge, but what makes riding here really special is the opportunity to connect with rural communities for a taste of real Spain.
