Tourinfo - Andalusia Especial, Mountains and Nature
Andalusia..."Especial" – With this tour, variety truly is the spice of the (biker's) life. We ride through impressive mountain scenery, along magnificent shorelines, past almond trees and cactus fields, through green forests and Europe's only desert. Hot asphalt and red dust alternate on this tour.
Besides the stunning natural scenery along the way, there is plenty to discover off the beaten track such as dazzling white villages and fantastic towns where Moorish culture has melded with the Spanish.
The journey offers complete motorcycling pleasure on small, winding mountain and coastal roads. The roads throughout the entire route are asphalted. Off-road detours are possible on request and according to riding ability. The comfort of a 3* to 4* hotel awaits us after a day's riding.

Course of events
Day 1: Arrival in Malaga
Arrival at Malaga airport and transfer to the hotel. Introductions over dinner with Spanish wine while giving us an opportunity to discuss our tour.
Day 2: Malaga – Cabo de Gata
Along the coastal road we warm up our motorbikes before we enjoy the first stretch of bends on this tour as we head through the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The winding roads continue through the Sierra de Gator. Magnificent views of the Mediterranean accompany us on our way to the Cabo de Gata nature reserve.
Day 3: Rodalquilar – Las Menas
From Cabo de Gata the tour takes us along the coast to Mojácar where we take a break in this fascinating town. And we could well use this break as the Sierra de los Filabres lies ahead. This mountain range is not particularly vast, it is also not particularly high and it is not even particularly spectacular – but it offers endless winding roads making it a motorcycling paradise!
Day 4: Las Menas – Cazorla
Through a valley plain we ride north to the Sierras around Cazorla and Segura, where unique landscapes, incredible stretches of road and endless biking pleasure await us. We will witness past ages when we drop by the remains of settlements built by the Romans and Phoenicians who once inhabited this region.
Day 5: Cazorla – Round trip Sierra Segura
On our tour of the Sierras of Cazorla, Segura and Castril we relish the magnificent mountain passes and enjoy the stunning views of this imposing mountain world. With a little luck we may even have the chance to watch vultures on their landing approach in the canyon of El Chorro. This region is also home to eagles and ibex.
Day 6: Cazorla – Granada
Along the Sierra Pozo and the Rio Fardes we head for Granada. Rising before the phenomenal backdrop of the Sierra Nevada is the incomparable Alhambra – the only Islamic palace complex to be preserved in its entirety – where we will spend the afternoon. In the evening we will join the hustle and bustle of Granada, visiting some of the innumerable bars to sample delicious tapas, cool cerveza, vino and fino in this fascinating city.
Day 7: Granada – Sierra Nevada – Malaga
Our final touring day leads us into and around the Sierra Nevada. You will rarely come across such diversity and extremes in the landscape: Snow at an altitude of 3,400 m, in spring a sea of blossoming almond trees, large vineyards and fields on the southern slopes and plains accompanied time and time again by the magnificent panoramic view over the deep-blue Mediterranean Sea.
Day 8: Return journey
Note: We reserve the right to make minor changes to the tour.
