What would happen if we take the sea, the mountains, the rain, and the summer, and we mixed them all up together? Well, it would be virtually impossible to find anything that wasn't a feast for the eyes and that didn't provide us with maximum motorcycle touring pleasure. The Cantabrian massif runs for 480 kilometres parallel to the Cantabrian sea from east to west, is on average a hundred kilometres wide, and finishes in the Galicia-Leon massif.
We arrive in Galicia along the coast and enjoy the breathtaking coastal scenery up to the border with Portugal, after which we start back inland and enjoy touring through valleys shaped by the tributaries of the river Duero. In this area, we can see Romanesque architecture dated from the ninth to twelfth centuries; we shall pass along St James's Way and spend our rest day visiting some of the most important “La Rioja” wineries.
An area whose cuisine is unrivalled.
