Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure through the heartland of Spain on one of our flagship mountain biking holidays. The Ruta de la Plata is an ancient trading and pilgrimage route taking us from the quintessentially Andalucian city of Seville through the green valleys of the far north west to the beautiful granite city of Santiago de Compostela. This is Spanish wilderness biking at its best with long climbs, thrilling descents and new challenges every day. Each day the route leads us ever northwards over a range of paths, tracks and remote trails. The terrain is incredibly varied, with sections of cobbled Roman roads, singletrack, dirt paths, and some quiet country roads to link the route together.
The scenery is epic with high mountain passes, Roman viaducts and incredibly diverse flora and fauna along the way. We follow in the footsteps of centuries of traders, troops, travellers and pilgrims, all of whom have left their mark and added to the character of the route. We pass over Roman roads and through beautiful towns and cities such as Merida with it’s amazing Roman monuments, Caceres and her perfect medieval centre and Salamanca’s engaging Plaza Mayor. The diversity of landscapes make this trip an unforgettable experience.
Our journey traverses the Iberian Peninsula covering approximately 1,000km through some of Spain’s least populated areas, such as Extremadura. While the route is rough in places, the overall technical level is not demanding and all intermediate level riders will be up to the challenge. However a high level of fitness will be required due to the many long days in the saddle.
