Cycling holidays in Spain

Spain may make you think of beach resorts but cycling is a great way to explore the hidden parts of the coastline and the hitherto unfashionable interior and have a leisurely holiday with fewer tourists. Get off the beaten track and enjoy a more authentic Spanish experience. We have carefully chosen areas of Spain where mountains are the backdrop rather than the foreground, where lush meadows and natural beauty are pre eminent and where folklore and history abound. Our gentle holidays resonate with the relaxed lifestyle of the Spanish.

There’s a great variety of landscape, from hills and mountains to green valleys and very old towns and villages. It’s a country soaked in tradition and there’s so much local culture that remains intact - the food is a particular highlight and you can still sample traditional regional specialities, all washed down with fantastic local wine. We’re also especially proud of some of the hotels we use on our cycling holidays in Spain, including manor houses in Majorca and ‘paradors’ - ancient buildings like monasteries, castles, palaces and manor houses, often in the most stunning locations, that have been turned into spectacular luxury hotels in mainland Spain.

The best times to visit are Spring and Autumn as it can be very hot in high summer. In early spring Majorca is beautiful when the almond blossom is out and our holidays run until the end of November in central Spain.
