In 2020 we were going to go back to Western Spain & Eastern Portugal to ride some of the lovely roads we’ve done before, and some completely new ones too, but Mr Covid C19 put a stop to that !!
So……….. we’ve now revamped the tour and hopefully we’ll now be doing it in Sept 2021, with a bit of luck.
The 2021 trip starts on Sunday Sept 05th for 18nights with an option for anyone who cant get away for more than 2 weeks to make a short cut and do just 14nights.
Both itinerary are basically the same, both include 2nights on the ferry (1 each way) and 16 or 12nights in hotels in Spain & Portugal.
Both tours use the same routes and almost all the same hotels too. They differ in duration because when we get down to the Mediterranean coast (Estepona) the 14 night tour stays for 2 nights then goes over to Cordoba for 2 nights and the 18 night tour stays at Estepona for 4 nights, then goes to Granada for 3 nights before heading over to Cordoba for just 1 night.
This is where the extra 4 nights difference occurs, other than that the two tours are the same.
The total mileage from Santander back to Santander is approx. 2,000 miles for 14nights and 2200 miles for 18nights. Most of the riding will be on scenic cross country roads, which are similar to our B roads, so if you enjoy riding sweepy swoopy twisty and scenic roads over hills and mountains you may well love this tour. If you aren’t keen on these road types you may find this trip a bit of a challenge but we can always sort out some more direct routes for you if you wish, just let me know.
We’re sailing out of Plymouth to Santander on Brittany Ferries ship – Pont Avon, and back from Santander to Portsmouth on their brand new ship – Galicia.
We’ll be riding some lovely sweepy swoopy roads, through some lovely scenery over mountains and across flat plains.
We’ll be seeing some great cities and sights, here’s a taster
And, of course, we’ll be staying at some nice hotels too –
