Cycling holidays Andalusia

Cycling: Andalusia

Flamenco, tapas and olive groves

Expect vast expanses, rolling hills and impressive Spanish coastline. Expect picturesque cities and Moorish influences in architecture and lifestyle. Vast and fascinating, this is Andalusia! You cannot get any closer to the impressive region in southernmost Spain than by bike. On the nine-day bike tour you will soon feel how harmoniously European and Arab culture merge here. Almost every day you hop onto your bike and immerse yourself in the world of bullfighters, fiestas and the world-famous flamenco. Of course, there is enough time for your own explorations. It’s also practical that you don’t have to worry about your suitcases during a cycle tour without luggage.

Learn a little more about Andalusia every day: you can do this on a cycle tour with Eurobike. The southernmost region of Spain shows off its beauty when you get very close – and you will definitely be on the bike. For nine days, you will explore the fascinating landscape with its famous cities of Malaga, Granada, Seville and Cordoba. With the bike you are wonderfully flexible and can stop wherever you like. Maybe between shady olive trees? Or do you prefer the winding streets of the Moorish city of Carmora?

Itinerary

Walk through the historic centre of Antequera with its 30 steeples.

Welcome briefing and bikefitting in the morning.The bike tour will begin with a ride on the old railway line through the beautiful countryside to Lucena. In one of the most important olive oil-producing regions of the world, the famous oil is pressed in the mills.

approx. 65 km
715 m
710 m

You will continue your journey along an old railway line passing vast olive groves. Wonderful views over the hills accompany the cyclists. The inhabitants of the region live mainly from agriculture and are very tradition-conscious people. This is also reflected in towns of Cabra, Zuheros and Dona Mencia.

 

approx. 25 – 45 km
310 m
380 m

The Sierra Morena with its foothills frames the former European Capital of Culture. This romantic area is surrounded by pine forests and an impressive solitude. The route leads on almost empty streets mostly hilly towards Córdoba.

Every now and then, you will pass farms, which specialize in the breeding of fighting bulls and enjoy a special reputation in Andalusia. In Córdoba explore the witnesses of the dazzling cosmopolitan past. With the Great Mosque Moorish architects created one of the most powerful Moorish building in Europe.

approx. 60 km
595 m
920 m

In the wide valley of the Guadalquivir, you will leave Córdoba on an old Roman connecting road. Ecija is the capital of horse breeding. From once important Franciscan monastery in Palma del Rio, the monks journeyed to America to proselytize.

approx. 60 km
305 m
340 m

Also today, the Guadalquivir is the first companion. You will continue your tour through the Campiña of Seville, a gently rolling landscape of fertile farmland to the west. Carmona is a city that has not changed for 150 years, it has Baroque palaces, churches and monasteries and is surrounded by intact Moorish town walls.

approx. 55 km
250 m
85 m

Today, you will cycle over the gently rolling plateau of Alcores to one of the most fertile agricultural areas in Andalusia. For centuries, Alcalá de Guadaira supplied Seville with bread and water and it is considered to be one of the cradles of flamenco. Former haciendas of the Kingdom of Seville, today just as large farms as in former times, line the road.

Our destination is Seville, where three of the most important operas are performed: Don Juan, the seducer; the cunning barber Figaro; and Carmen, the femme fatale, who lost her life somewhere between the tobacco factories and the bullfight arena. Two international exhibitions helped the city to futuristic buildings and great green parks.

approx. 25 km + train ride

Tour character

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.

Eine anstrengende, aber wunderbare Reise
Die Reise hat uns gut gefallen, die Landschaft ist wunderschön und wir hatten perfektes Wetter. Ich würde diese Reise nur im Herbst empfehlen, da es im Frühling zu kalt und im Sommer zu heiss sein kann. Die Hotelauswahl war gut (Standard), nur in Riva war das Zimmer kleiner und dunkler als in den anderen Hotels (und ohne Balkon). Der Gepäcktransfer hat bestens geklappt. Wir haben ohne HP gebucht und ich würde dies wieder so buchen. Das Kartenmaterial in den Unterlagen war nicht ideal, tw. auch von der Routenwahl. Ein Ruhetag nach dem 3. statt nach dem 4. Wandertag wäre besser und auch ziemlich notwendig. Andererseits ist Molveno ein wunderbare Ort und es war schön, den Ruhetag dort zu verbringen. Wirklich schlecht waren die Busverbindungen. Sogar in Meran fuhren die Busse stark verspätet, in Oberplatzining fuhr der Bus (nur stündlich) gleich überhaupt nicht und wir mussten ein Taxi rufen. Das Busticket ab Oberplatzining war sogar im Reisepreis enthalten, aber so kamen die Kosten für das Taxi obendrauf. Was man ebenfalls wissen muss, ist das man in Meran Bustickets weder online (wenn man keine aufladbare Buskarte hat) noch beim Fahrer kaufen kann. Das hat die Verbindung am 1. Tag von Meran nach Marling sehr kompliziert gemacht.

Prädikat "gut"
Unterkunft in Palma del Rio spitze, unbedingt dort essen. In Carmona waren Stadt und Hotel sehr schön. Hotline von Eurotrek und Betreuer reagierten in einem Notfall sehr zuverlässig!

Nicht zu unterschätzen
Die Route ist gut ausgewählt, doch mit den Hügeln (speziell am dritten Tag) nicht ganz zu unterschätzen. Angenehm vom Verkehr her. Programm mit den verschiedenen Führungen und kulturellen Orten gut zusammen gestellt. Alejandro war stets aufgestellt, hilfsbereit und sehr zuverlässig. Die Führung in Granada super! Der Empfang in Antequera durch Luisa eher etwas kratzbürstig. Die Hotels sind im Grossen und Ganzen gut. Teilweise liegen sie etwas weit weg vom Zentrum oder sind etwas muffelig. Doch Carmona war der absolute Highlight! Unbedingt beibehalten.
