A crew member of the  Hispania Tours team awaits you at the airport in Málaga and will transfer you to the comfy tour hotel.

If you are already accommodated on site, or your flight arrives early enough (in the morning before 11:00 am), you can remove this overnight stay from the included services during the booking process.

After picking up the motorbike in the morning, we head quickly past orange and lemon trees towards the mighty El Chorro Gorge. From there we ride along small roads through deserted valleys with olive groves towards the Sierra de las Nieves National Park. On your way to Ronda, spectacularly beautiful winding roads with exceptional grip and great views of the surrounding mountains and the Mediterranean Sea await you. You reach your destination Ronda, which lies on the slope of the 100m Tajo gorge, via the imposing bridge "Puente Nuevo", which was built in 1750. Ronda knows how to inspire with its old town and its narrow alleys and walls from the Moorish period.

  • Stage destination: Ronda
  • Driving kilometres: 242 km
  • Highlights: El Chorro, Sierra de las Nieves, Serranía de Ronda, Puente Nuevo

Your route from Ronda takes you along small roads through a gorge, passing a former dam with impressive rock formations. The route continues along the breathtaking curves of the Serranía de Ronda to the Atlantic coast of Spain, from where you can see Africa only 15 km away. The numerous restaurants of the fishing villages with a relaxed surfer flair invite you to enjoy a grilled fish with a view of the Atlantic. In the afternoon, you will cycle along the seemingly endless Atlantic coast to your destination of today, Conil de la Frontera.

  • Stage destination: Conil de la Frontera
  • Driving kilometres: 270 km
  • Highlights: Serranía de Ronda, Strait of Gibraltar, Atlantic Coast

Today your tour takes you to Jerez de la Frontera, the home of the world-famous sherry (Jerez wine), where you have the opportunity to visit a bodega and taste a wine or two. Jerez is not only famous for its sherry, but also for its noble race horses. You will spend the night in Arcos de la Frontera, whose idiosyncratic setting on a rocky ridge 160m above the Guadalete River is considered one of the most beautiful white villages in Andalusia.

  • Stage destination: Arcos de la Frontera
  • Driving kilometres: 180 km
  • Highlights: Bodega Sandeman, Old Town Arcos

The fresh mountain air in the morning gives you energy for the coming hours in the Sierra de Grazalema, which captivates you with its turquoise lakes, cork oak forests, birds of prey circling above you and a unique pass road up to Puerto de las Palomas.

Great rinding through endless fields of olive trees and then, after an eventful day, you can linger in Antequera, which is steeped in history. In Antequera, you have the opportunity to visit a dolmen site, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2016.

  • Stage destination: Antequera
  • Driving kilometres: 280 km
  • Highlights: Sierra de Grazalema, Puerto de las Palomas, Alcazaba Antequera, dolmen site

In the morning you leave Antequera and its Alcazaba fortress and drive up to the natural wonder "El Torcal", which is known for its unique karstic rock formations. The route takes you up through the Sierra Tejeda on beautiful sweeping curves to "El Boquete" - an opening from which you can enjoy a magnificent panorama over the mountains to the sea. Before you reach Granada, the impressive panoramic road up to the Sierra Nevada awaits you, which with its mountains of over 3400m is the highest mountain range on the Spanish peninsula. Granada is Andalusia in its purest form and will overwhelm you with its charming tapas bars and fiery flamenco.

  • Stage destination: Granada
  • Driving kilometres: 230 km
  • Highlights: El Torcal, Almond Valley - Almendral, Sierra Nevada, Old Town Granada

From Granada, the route heads south along the small mountain roads of the Sierra Nevada, which eventually lead you to the Mediterranean coast. A beautiful coastal road will take you to small villages that invite you to sit down in a café on the beach and enjoy the sea breeze. Your route then continues through the Alpujarra mountains, which will delight you with its countless curves, almond trees, vines and views of the Sierra Nevada and the sea. Before arriving at Capileira, you will have the opportunity to visit Trevélez, the highest municipality in Spain and famous for its Serrano ham. Your destination, Capileira, is one of the white mountain villages. Its origins date back to the time of the Moors, who occupied Andalusia between the 8th and 15th centuries.

  • Stage destination: Capileira
  • Driving kilometres: 250 km
  • Highlights: Mediterranean coast, Alpujarras, Bodega 4 Vientos, Trevélez

From Capileira you take a winding mountain road to the south, to the beginning of the goat road, called "la cabra" by the locals, which, in addition to magnificent serpentine roads, offers stark contrasts in landscape between rugged stone masses and softly drawn green hills. Such a great variety of scenic extremes is rarely found elsewhere: Snow at an altitude of 3,400m, a sea of flowering almond trees in spring, green fields and turquoise lakes on the southern slopes and plains. Before returning to Málaga, the "Móntes de Málaga" nature park offers you numerous curves and a beautiful view of the city of Málaga, the endless sea and the surrounding mountains.

  • Stage destination: Málaga
  • Driving kilometres: 240 km
  • Highlights: Sierra Tejeda, Móntes de Málaga

If you are already accommodated locally, or your flight departs late enough (in the afternoon from 17.00), you can remove today's overnight stay from the included services during the booking process.

The suitcases are packed and according to your flight time, our transfer service is ready to take you to the airport. We say goodbye and hope to see you again soon on one of our other motorbike adventures!
