What you'll do

Our MTB tours explore local communities that have existed for millennia. From the first ancient neolithic settlements, the UNESCO protected Cave Art that dots the landscapes, ancient salt pans first exploited by the Carthaginians, and Moorish fortresses that guarded the passes and caminos through these valuable lands. We'll ascend high into the mountains where Vultures glide and Golden Eagles roost, where Deer and Wild Boar roam through the high ancient woodlands and the springs flow with pristine water that's filtered through the Karstic limestone, rendering it pure and crystal clear. Depending on the season, you'll experience the Lavender fields in full bloom, the makeshift distilleries where the oils are produced, or the harvesting of Almonds and Walnuts. Walnuts are a special delicacy of the area. Of course there will be plenty of time to savour the local cuisine! Our routes are not flat and are best suited to riders that have experience, but we're happy to tailor our routes to accommodate all levels if we can. We do not recommend anyone under 18 take these tours..

As Level 3 Mountain Bike Leader I’ve ridden all over Spain, both solo and as a guide; on road and off. From long multi-day end to end routes like the GR7 through Andalucia, or the Camino de Mozarabe, to taking small groups of cyclists through the glorious and dramatic National Parks and mountains that are on my doorstep. I enjoy regaling tales of the history and culture of the area, and listening to others tell their stories. I’ve been riding these local caminos for over 10 years now and every time I ride I see or learn something new. Some new vista that draws your breath, some new bloom that fascinates…every ride reveals something new

Where you'll be

We'll visit several locations that have UNESCO protected Rock Art (UNESCO ref.874), although they are protected with fences. Moorish fortresses that guarded the Andalucia frontier, visit the small agricultural towns that dot the hillsides and hopefully spot the Deer and Ibex that roam these landscapes.

More tips

While we try and accommodate all skill levels, the local terrain does require a fitness level commensurate with the terrain. The hills are steep! There is very little, if any technical terrain, and so can be enjoyed by most people with a well maintained mountain bike.
