Daily itinerary

  • Day 1: Arrival to Alicante +

    Your tour guide will pick you up from the airport and bring you to your hotel in Alicante. After we get you settled in the hotel and you become acquainted with your bike, just take it easy - rest in the hotel, see the town or take a short introductory ride with the guide to get accustomed to the motorcycle (starts at 5 PM, takes about 2 hrs)

    In the evening we will meet for a welcome dinner and to brief you about the format of our tour, describe in detail the route of Day 2. Every evening we have the briefing for next day.
  • Day 2: Alicante - La Manga 260km (around 4h 30min) +

    We start our tour crossing the inland mountains to reach La Manga, as the coasts south Alicante are too much built - up to be pleasing. In the inland we will find typical landscapes of this area, where sparse vegetation and wind erosion enables us to see the changing colour of the mountains layers we are running through, showing us very nice views. La Manga is a special place to enjoy the sunset with a sunglass and a fresh drink in hand.
  • Day 3: La Manga - Aguilas: 165km (around 4h) +

    Today we ride on roads nearby the sea, and interesting to enable us to enjoy the riding of our motorcycles. We stop in "Bateria de Castillitos" to have nice view of the cliffs of the area, and ride some nice curvy roads across the mountains of “Las Moreras” and Cape “Cope”.In Aguilas we will take pleasure of a good rest by the beach.
  • Day 4: Aguilas - Cabo de Gata 175km (around 4h) +

    We rejoin again the route along the coast with the sea as a companion getting beautiful sea and mountain landscapes, and then get thrilled by bending roads in the mountains of Alhamilla. At the arrival, and if the participant wants to, he can get to the "Cabo de Gata" to enjoy the wild and isolated views.
  • Day 5: Rest Day or Explore Almeria 320km (around 3h 15min) +

    Almeria is the area of less rainfall in all Europe. Today we have a guided ride out at Almeria mountains, taking about 3h 15 min and 330km. There we enjoy a lot of bends and beautiful landscapes. You can also stay at the hotel, rest, enjoy the sun on the beach or maybe play golf at the resort near the hotel. It's up to you!
  • Day 6: Cabo de Gata - Motril 210km (around 3h 45min) +

    Today we will have a wonderful riding day along " La Alpujarra", an area to the south of the Natural Park " Sierra Nevada"( it includes the highest peak of the Iberian Peninsula, The Mulhacen at 3,479m) where we enjoy the winding roads and its changing landscapes, as the soil has different colours along the route, that make this area so beatiful and fun to ride in.
  • Day 7: Motril - Malaga 140km (around 3h 30min) +

    We head towards Malaga with the sea on our way along the marvelous landscapes of the wild coast. We don't miss the magnificient Nerja Caves which is a must visit place in Andalusia, one of Spain's most popular and spectacular sites. Then we enjoy our ride on the twisting roads near the Natural Park "Sierra de Tejada" which offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean sea.
  • Day 8: - Mountains of Malaga 173km (around 4h) +

    Malaga is best known for its sunshine and beaches, but for a biker it's an authentic paradise of winding and well paved roads. It's surrounded by mountains and Natural Parks, some of which we will cross today with our bikes. Even if the route is considered included in the tour, you can decide if yo want to do other activities (beach, tourism, shopping.......)
  • Day 9: Back Home +

    Now the moment has come to say "Until next time!" to get back home. We wish you have enjoyed your trip along the Mediterranean coast, and we look forward to meet you in another motorcycling adventure through other regions in Spain and Morocco.
