View Map
  Magic is in the making on this self-guided tour of Spain’s most enchanting region. Cycling along quiet country roads and cycle paths, you will revel in and fall in love with the history, culture, beauty, and spirit found in the vibrant towns and landscapes of Andalucia.

Setting off from the sunny city of Sevilla, you will wind your way to the seaside and Cadiz, thought to be the oldest city in western Europe. On the way, you’ll encounter some of the area’s most remarkable jewels: intricate Moorish architecture such as the Alcazar palace of Carmona; sun-drenched olive groves and sunflower fields; breathtaking views from hilltop towns; the birthplace of Flamenco music; and the picturesque beaches of Puerto de Santa Maria. Paired with daily chances to savour typical cuisine and overnights at luxury hotels and Paradores (converted historic buildings), this week-long tour will have you falling under Andalucía’s spell.
Day 1: Arrival in Sevilla

Whether you’re arriving by plane or train, we recommend allowing lots of time to discover the magical city of Sevilla. The capital and largest city of Andalucía, exquisite examples of Spanish and Moorish architecture can be found at every turn, including the Alcázar, a royal palace which you may recognize from Lawrence of Arabia and Game of Thrones. Legend says it was founded by none other than Hercules; what we know for sure is that its rich culture, history, and vibrant spirit will enchant you entirely.
Day 2: Sevilla — Carmona (50 km/31 miles, 545 meters/1,788 ft of climbing)

Thanks to Sevilla’s incredible network of bike paths, you’ll roll out of the city with ease, heading southeast to join a well-maintained dirt cycle route that follows the river Guadáira. Enjoy leisurely cycling along flat roads through quaint towns and golden landscapes of wheat fields and sunflowers before reaching the historic walled town of Carmona.

Leave your bikes at the hotel and get ready to explore an incredible array of history and gastronomy. Multiple cultures have left their mark on Carmona, evident in the unique mix of monuments including the Roman Necropolis, the Marchena Gate, and the Convent of Santa Clara. Carmona is also known for its traditional Andalusian cuisine-specialities include sopa de picadillo (chicken soup), Serrano ham, mountain partridge, as well as a variety of desserts made in the city’s convents ensure that you won’t go hungry while you’re in town!
Day 3: Carmona — Montellano (67 km/42 miles, 655 meters/2,149 ft of climbing)

Today we’ve planned the longest ride of the trip to help you cycle off your hearty dinner from last night. Heading south, you’ll once again find yourself pedaling along flat roads in the quiet countryside. Scattered along the route are several small traditional towns, where you can stop for an energizing coffee or a refreshing beer! Then it’s back on the bike to Montellano, a lovely town recognizable by its pink marble buildings.
Day 4: Montellano — Arcos de la Frontera (62 km/38 miles, 831 meters/2,726 ft of climbing)

Although your view from Montellano falls upon the Sierra de Grazalema in the distance, be assured that your ride today will feature hills rather than mountains, as our route will take you into a pristine Mediterranean woodland. You will pedal along very quiet country roads, safe for a 8-kilometre section along the “Vía Verde de la Sierra” (a former railway line which is now used as a cycle path.) The typical Andalusian town of Puerto Serrano is a good place to stop for a lunch of pipirrana or gachas serranas.

Your final hill of the day will take you up to the sandstone ridge that holds the town of Arcos de la Frontera, from where you’ll enjoy a rewarding view of the Guadalete Valley. Spend some time in its historic plazas; depending on your tastes, you can relax and have a meal or even catch a bullfighting show!
Day 5: Arcos de la Frontera — Jerez de la Frontera (54 km/33 miles, 452 meters/1,483 ft of climbing)

Riding on from Arcos, you can expect more hills today as you follow the Guadalete river downstream along quiet country roads. Mediterranean woodlands and farmland provide a scenic backdrop for your journey, with villages providing welcome breaks along the way. Your final stop of the day is the town of Jerez de la Frontera, famous for its Flamenco and sherry!
Day 6: Jerez de la Frontera — Cádiz (62 km/39 miles, 415 meters/1,362 ft of climbing)

For this last day of cycling, you’ll once again pedal south towards the sea and the ancient city of Cádiz. On the way, you’ll visit El Puerto de Santa Maria, a breathtaking town where a lunch of fresh fish is highly recommended. The bike paths you’ll follow will take you right onto the beach in Cádiz, where the salt air is sure to refresh you for an evening on the town. Home to beautiful monuments and stunning beaches, the city’s history and splendor are sure to make you fall in love with it.
Day 7: Departure or Extra nights in Cádiz or Sevilla

After breakfast, you are free to depart from Cádiz at your leisure; if you're not quite ready to say goodbye to this enchanting region, we can arrange extra nights for you in Cádiz or Sevilla.
