Map for the Biking Holiday in Andalusia

Day 1: Individual arrival in Antequera

Antequera awaits you – the heart of Andalusia. The small town with its white buildings and red tiled roofs at the foot of the Alcazaba looks wonderful. Take some time for a walk around Antequera and treat yourself to a glass of Muscatel.

Day 2: Antequera – Lucena, approx. 65 km

You will set off cycling along a disused railway line through the gentle hills of the region, which is famous for its olive oil and high-quality sherry.

Day 3: Lucena – Don Mencia, approx. 20 – 45 km

Today too, the old railway line takes you past expansive olive groves through the Province of Córdoba. In Cabra, you will see Spain's oldest church. You will be cycling through the UNESCO Geopark Sierra Subbéticas. The inhabitants live mainly from agriculture and are extremely tradition-conscious people. This is also reflected in the towns of Cabra, Zuheros and Don Mencia. The list of the annual fiestas that take place here is long!

Day 4: Don Mencia – Córdoba, approx. 60 km

Along quiet roads and frequently through pine forests, this section takes you over the Sierra Morena plateau. At the end of the day, Córdoba awaits you with a veritable firework of sights! At the beginnings of al-Andalus, Christians, Jews and Muslims all lived here peacefully together. The Mequita is legendary – first a mosque and today a cathedral.

Day 5: Córdoba – Palma del Rio, approx. 60 km

Guadalquivir, you leave Córdoba. Fish, game and oranges are important ingredients of the local cuisine here. You will soon be able to make out Écija, the city of towers. The colourful tiles on the roofs of the Baroque churches shimmer in the sunlight. In Palma del Rio is a Franciscan monastery, once of great import, as it was from here the monks set off to America on their missions.

Day 6: Palma del Rio – Carmona, approx. 55 km

Today you cycle through Campina de Sevilla, one of the most fertile regions of Andalusia. Rough karst rock formations alternate with Mediterranean oak forests. Carmona is an exciting destination for a day trip, with interesting archaeological sites, a Baroque historic quarter and an intact Moorish city wall. Built on a range of hills, you can almost see the entire Sierra Morena from here.

Day 7: Carmona – Sevilla, approx. 25 km + train ride

Along the gentle hills of the plateau of the Alcores the former royal Haciendas still characterise the agriculture here today. The Flamenco dance is in the people's blood here. One of the absolute highlights of this tour is Sevilla, which you can get to know on a sightseeing bus tour. This is where you will find the biggest Gothic cathedral in the world, built on the remains of a Mosque.

Day 8: Individual departure or extended stay

Your biking holiday in Andalusia ends after breakfast. We would be happy to extend your holiday in the South of Spain if you like.
