Join us on this leisurely journey between Andalucia's three greatest cities, Granada, Cordoba and Seville. All three cities are entrenched in ancient Moorish heritage and ooze Andaluz culture.
The cities are linked with rides through rolling sierras and olive groves and into La Campina, once the ‘bread-basket’ of the Roman Empire. You'll cycle along the purpose built cycle way, the Vias Verdes; once the railway lines of the region, they are now disused and perfect for cycling! By design they are compact and flat, offering the perfect rolling network from which to enjoy the breathtaking scenery, cultural and historical delights of the real Andalucia.
This adventure will thrill the senses calling first at Granada, the last Moorish capital crammed with historical and architectural delights. The beauty of the majestic Alhambra Palace and Generalife gardens are unmissable and we would highly recommend you arrive in Granada a few days early to see the sights and soak-up the seductiveness of this wonderful city. Our route meanders through craggy sierras, passing castle-topped villages with overnight stays in Baena and Bujalance, which are immersed by the production of liquid gold, olive oil.
The next stop is the birth place of Spanish Flamenco. Cordoba is a curious mix of Moorish and Catholic architectural wizardry, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city in which the Mezquita, or Mosque-Cathedral, reigns supreme. The Vias Verdes cycle path will take us on gentle trails to the monumental Carmona, before a short last day of riding into Seville, full of Andalucian treasures. A bike tour around this cycle-friendly city will give us the chance to sample the sights, like the cathedral and Giralda tower. Seville, a city characterized by flamenco, tapas bars and remarkable architecture, is a truly unforgettable cultural experience and a real highlight to end this fantastic holiday.
