Motorcycletour Pyrenees - Selfguided
The perfect combination of a weekend city break and an unforgetable motorcycle week is in Barcelona and the Pyrenees at your disposal. It couldn't be easier - you come to Barcelona and we will be waiting for you at the airport, bring you to the hotel and you´ll enjoy this marvolouse cultural capital.
After the days in the city you will be enjoying sun, sea and the magnificent mountain and coastal roads of the motorcycle paradise that is Catalonia, you will receive an extensive information package and comprehensive route map of the tour and we will organize the hotels for you.
Of course you will always have a direct contact line to Hispania-Tours.
We will organise the logistics and everything else you need to have an unforgettable riding experience, so all you have to do is concentrate on enjoying the open road.
Just returned from an 8 day self guided tour of the Pyrenees. I really appreciated Eva's help and instruction on departure day.She knows her stuff. Volker set up an amazing route through Spain and France.The accomodations that they set up were well beyond my expectations (The hospitality and quality of food in the hotels far surpassed anything that I experienced on the trip). Hispania Tours' professionalism and concern for customer experience is #1. I will definitely return for another tour in the near future.
Thank you for organising such a fantastic trip for our honeymoon! Excellent selection of routes, destinations, accommodation and restaurant suggestions throughout the 6 days of self-guided touring around the Pyrenees. Seamless online planning from the start with Eva, to easy pick-up and return of the bike with Volker.
We have great memories of our time in the Pyrenees.
Having loved our trip to Barcelona in 2006. My wife and I planned to return again, bring friends and rent motorcycles. Being from Chicago USA we made all our reservations through the website and continued our conversation through email. Volker and Eva were very helpful throughout the entire process.
We picked up the bikes on a beautiful Sunday and Volker spent time going through each bike and then we discussed recommended places and roads to visit. As it turns out, the house we rented was right in the area Volker suggested has great roads.
We had a wonderful week of riding two up on the 1200GS's in various places all over Catalonia. The GPS was invaluable in helping get from one place to another - although there is not substitute for asking direction from a local! Some of the roads we were on were not even on the GPS.
The return process was easy and quick. I would definitely recommend Hispania Tours to anyone coming to Spain.

Barcelona, the cultural metropolis at the mediterranean
Set on a plain rising gently from the sea to a range of wooded hills, Barcelona is Spain's most cosmopolitan city and one of the Mediterranean's busiest ports. Restaurants, bars and clubs are always packed, as is the seaside in summer. The city's avant-garde chefs whip up a storm that has even the French reaching for superlatives.
You might get the impression it's dedicated exclusively to hedonism, but it's a hard-working, dynamic place hoping to place itself in the vanguard of 21st-century Europe.
It regards its long past with pride. From Roman town it passed to medieval trade juggernaut, and its old centre constitutes one of the greatest concentrations of Gothic architecture in Europe. Beyond this core are some of the world's more bizarre buildings: surreal spectacles capped by Antoni Gaudí's Sagrada Família church.
Barcelona has been breaking ground in art, architecture and style since the late 19th century. From the marvels of Modernisme to the modern wonders of today, from Picasso to the likes of Susana Solano, the racing heart of Barcelona has barely skipped a beat.
Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, a region with its own language, character and history – many Catalans think of their home as a separate country. The city itself could keep you occupied for weeks but just outside it are sandy beaches, Sitges and the Montserrat mountain range - so be sure to make time for a few day trips during your stay.
Day 1 Arrival to Barcelona
Arrival to Barcelona and Airport and check in at the hotel in the city of Barcelona.
Day 2 Barcelona - Puigcerda
First day of the journey will be challenging but rewarding, because we cross the catalonian countryside towards Montseny mountains, a sleeper among the local riders. After lunch we continue through curvy, pleasant streets towards the first peaks of the Pyrenees. We stay overnight in the friendly Puigcerda, just around the corner of Andorra.
Day 3 Puigcerda - Viehla
In the heart of the Pyrenees we really start to feel the riders blood in our veins. We cross several mountain passes between 2000 and 2400 meters and reach the tax-free shopper´s paradise of Andorra. We ride on through the most beautiful landscapes and mountain villages as we cross the National Park of the Aran Valley before we reach Vielha.
Day 4 Vielha - Jaca
Back on the saddle, we will travel west on french territory through gorges, tunnels, and along wild rivers. On twisting roads we enter Spain again to reach the wonderful old village of Jaca.
Day 5 Jaca - Monte Perdido - Jaca
In the morning we search for the holy grail that is meant to remain in the San Juan Monastery, before the Monte Perdido National Park takes our breath away. The spectacular track through the Monte Perdido is a highlight in every motorcycle tour in this area.
Day 6 Jaca - Peramola
We leave Jaca and head east. Today is one of the most exciting days of the journey - endless curves through mountain passes like the the Coll Nargó will bring us to Peramola, one of the top resorts around.
Day 7 Peramola - Barcelona
On the last riding day we leave the Pyrenees and enjoy the smooth country road that takes us to the Montserrat Monastery with its bizarre rock formations, from where we see Barcelona already.
Day 8 Return journey
Note: We reserve the right to make minor changes to the tour.
