FAQs about this trip
Ride undulating terrain through rich fields of sunflowers to Roman and Moorish villages.
Andalucia, the heartland of Southern Spain, is a fertile stretch of land from the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the Mediterranean Sea. We will experience the most famous cities and villages of the region in our weeklong bicycle excursion from Seville to Cordoba to Granada. From the tiny whitewashed pueblos to the palatial Alhambra, we will see the influence of several civilizations as we ride with the sun. With evenings at leisure to sample tapas and sherry, catch a bullfight or explore the nightlife, our Andalucian Sun ride is a wonderful assortment of fresh air, new flavors and exciting sights.
