Spain's Andalusia 8-day Self-guided Cycling Tour Level 4
Bullfights, tapas, fiestas, and flamenco are waiting for you in unique Andalusia. The southernmost region of Spain is a paradise full of surprises. Hardly any other landscape evokes such fascinating pictures as Andalusia: a Flamenco dancer in a flowing red dress, white villages on hills, Moorish palaces, and gloriously dressed bullfighters in crowded arenas. Experience an incomparable conglomeration of European and Arabic culture, scenic beauty harmonized perfectly with masterful architecture: Today’s Andalusia combines modernity with a rich tradition. We will guide you on well-developed routes and small roads without much traffic through lush overgrown hills, green river valleys and the wild landscape of the Sierras. You will visit Seville and Cordoba, the metropolises of the spiritual life in Moorish Andalusia. In the narrow streets, in the markets, in the buildings of the Alhambra, the Real Alcazar, and the Mezquita you will travel through time and dream about days gone by, in which Andalusian scholars brought light to the darkness of the European Middle Ages. So ... come, eat and drink: cervezas, tapas, wine, and jamon iberico. Andalusia is awaiting you!
The bike routes are alternately flat and hilly. You will cycle on bike paths (former railway lines) and side roads. In some cases, you will find yourself on roads with more traffic, especially when entering or leaving a city.
