Spain may make you think of beach resorts but cycling and walking are great ways to explore the coastline and the hitherto unfashionable interior and have a leisurely holiday. 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 and there's always a charming historic or rural hotel to welcome you after a day's cycling or walking. Outside the hottest months of July and August, the temperature is good for bikes and boots and in early spring Majorca is beautiful when the almond blossom is out. Our holidays run until the end of November in central Spain.
