Self-Guided Cycle in Northern Spain

A self-guided cycle trip that explores the green north coast of Spain, sandwiched between the Cantabrian Mountains and Atlantic coast. Cycle on quiet country roads, passing tiny coves and charming coastal villages on an exploration of Asturias. Along the way you can enjoy great seafood, cheeses, local delicacies and the cider-making capital of Villaviciosa. The route ends at the friendly seaside town of Gijon. Some of the rides follow sections of the Pilgrims' Route to Santiago de Compostela (St.James' Way) past intriguing ruins and Romanesque chapels.

Tour Highlights

  • Pleasant cycling through the gorgeous landscapes of España Verde (Green Spain)
  • Green fields, woodlands and lovely coves: with views to both the mountains and the sea
  • Charming and comfortable accommodation in small, peaceful villages
  • Short detours to historical monuments and beaches along the way
  • Traditional local architecture: village houses, stables, wooden grain barns and stone walls
  • Delicious regional gastronomy, including hearty stews, free-range chicken and beef, natural apple cider and an amazing variety of locally-produced artisan cheeses

Cycling Information
On this journey you cycle 173 km over six days (an average of 29 km per day). The rides mostly follow quiet interior roads (busier near the major towns). The terrain is generally rolling with plenty of uphill sections, although never more than 200m in any one ascent. There are no sections with dedicated cycle paths but traffic is light. On the two circular routes about 30% follows gravel tracks and dirt roads (days 2 and 5). We have graded the route as easy to moderate.
Included Bike
21 or 24 gear Giant or Specialized hybrid bike with front suspension.

Electric bikes (e-bikes) are available for an additional cost for the duration of the holiday (£45). You will be required to pay a refundable deposit upon collection of the e-bike in country. Please contact us for more details or to request your e-bike.
