This tour is one of the region’s most diverse in terms of geography, cultural highlights and sheer beauty. From lakesides to open vineyards and cotton fields we experience all of Andalucia’s colours and pleasant back roads.
See ancient fortresses on the horizon, rustic farms harvesting grapes and olives and take in the laid-back culture of the small village plazas.
After cycling, join your leader for a light interpretive walk of the villages and visit monuments and places frequented by locals. Become acquainted with the ‘Tapas’ culture on your tapas and sherry night and lean how the Spanish live a remarkably long life!
