After picking up your motorbike in the morning, you will head quickly east along a beautiful coastal road along the Mediterranean Sea. Along the way you cross small villages, coastal cliffs with panoramic views over the sea and small cafés on the beach, that invite you to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee in the breeze. Along beautiful curves, you continue towards the Tabernas desert, once the scenery of Western movies, to reach the Cabo de Gata nature park. This is a sunny region all year round, and with temperatures around 20-25 degrees, it is still a great place to sunbathe even in winter time.

  • Stage destination: Mojácar
  • Distance:  330 km
  • Highlights: Mediterranean coast, Tabernas desert

After a beautiful fiery red sunrise by the sea, you ride along a beautiful coastal road and small bays with impressive beaches, like Playa de los Muertos and former gold mining towns. The route takes you to Cabo de Gata´s lighthouse, which sits on a karst cliff where the waves break, offering an impressive panorama of the volcanic landscape. You continue along small roads, past flower fields, old windmills and then return to Mojácar along perfect roads with great curves and grip. What a great riding day !

  • Stage destination: Mojácar
  • Distance:  240 km
  • Highlights: Cabo de Gata Lighthouse, Playa de los Muertos

In the morning, you depart from Mojácar through the curves of Sorbas, a road with perfect grip that invites you to enjoy your bike. You reach Almería´s race track, where you can watch the superbikes at close quarters. Ahead of you lies Alto de Velefique pass road, aka the Andalusian Stelvio, which will challenge you with its spectacular road and many switchbacks. Once you reach the top, you are rewarded with an unbeatable panorama of the route you have covered, the surrounding mountains and the shimmering sea behind you. The tour continues into Murcia's hinterland along small roads, past an old monastery in the mountains and hundreds of almond trees, all the way to Lorca, where you can already see your final goal from a distance - the fortress with its Parador overlooking the city.

  • Stage destination: Lorca
  • Distance:  275 km
  • Highlights: Alto de Velefique, Circuito de Almería, Parador de Lorca

With Lorca in the rearview mirror, you slowly head south again, where the never-ending curves of the Sierra de Filabres await you. This very authentic Spanish region is characterised by small villages, goatherds, mamor quarries and their stonecutters. You continue quickly along a long winding road and leave the badlands to enter Sierra Nevada Nature Park. With its 3400m high peaks, Sierra Nevada is the highest mountain range in Spain and offers you pure riding pleasure with its numerous switchbacks. Finally you arrve at the Parador of Nerja, which, thanks to its location by the sea, is one of the most beautiful hotels in Spain.

  • Stage destination: Nerja
  • Distance:  350 km
  • Highlights: Sierra de Filabres Nature Park, Sierra Nevada Nature Park, Nerja Parador 

The fresh sea air in the morning recharge your batteries for the curves ahead, which will take you up to the White Villages of the snow-covered Sierra Nevada. The origins of these villages date back to the time of the Moors, who occupied Andalusia between the 8th and 15th centuries. The old walls and narrow streets of the historical towns are fascinating. You will also have the opportunity to visit Trevélez - the most elevated village in Spain and famous for its Serrano ham.

Afterwards, you will continue on to the Alpujarra mountains - with a great combination of landscapes that are rarely found together elsewhere: Snow at an altitude of 3,400 m on the peaks of the Sierras, a sea of blossoming almond trees, large vineyards and fields  and again and again the magnificent view of the deep blue Mediterranean Sea. A paradise of curves winds through this splendour and finally brings you back to the coast.

  • Stage destination: Nerja
  • Distance:  260 km
  • Highlights: White villages, Sierra Nevada, Sierra Alpujarras

From Nerja, your route takes you into the Sierra Tejeda, past cherimoya and avocado trees of to a twisting road known among the locals as „Carretera de la cabra" (goat path).  Off the road, you'll admire scenic contrasts between softly rolling green hills and craggy stone masses reminiscent of the Pyrenees mountains. Before you return to Málaga, your route will take you to the Móntes de Málaga Nature Park, which offers you countless curves and panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea and the surrounding mountains.

  • Stage destination: Málaga
  • Distance:  225 km
  • Highlights: Sierra Tejeda, "Carretera de la cabra - the goat trail", Móntés de Málaga
