Day 1:

This fabulous self-guided tour begins as you board the flagship of the Brittany ferries fleet, the Pont Aven. With several restaurants, bars and a cinema this is the perfect place to relax as you sail overnight across the Bay of Biscay to Spain.

Day 2: 230 miles

Your lunchtime arrival in Santander allows plenty of time to enjoy the route as your journey takes you through Cantabria and Castilla Y Leon to the Romanesque town of Segovia. This beautiful town is steeped in history and with the Roman aqueduct dominating the skyline and the fabulous gothic Cathedral it is a fascinating place to explore.

Day 3: (supplied ride-out 98 miles)

Today is a ride or rest day where you can choose to discover more of Segovia, visit Madrid which is around fifty miles away, or take the suggested ride out which takes you deep into the surrounding forests and to the Sierra de Guadarrama Mountain range.

Day 4: 313 miles

Your onward journey now heads across the Iberian Peninsula and the plains of Castilla La Mancha. Today is the longest day on the tour but due to the smooth, sweeping, traffic free roads you make good progress through the barren arid landscape. Your destination tonight is a fabulous four star hotel in the historic town of Cordoba. With underground parking and a roof top swimming pool the hotel is set on the banks of the Guadalquivir River and is just a short walk across the Roman bridge to the centre of town.

Day 5: 150 miles

With your longest day now just a memory you can make a leisurely start and continue through Andalusia toward the Mediterranean coast. As you travel further south the open roads give way to the mountainous splendour of the Sierra de las Nieves national park. For the next two nights you stay in a luxury hotel, with outdoor swimming pools and extensive gardens. Set in a typical Andalusian village this is the perfect place to rest and relax. The region is famous for its beautiful natural landscape and excellent food.

Day 6: (supplied ride-out 100 miles)

Today you could choose to visit the chic holiday resort of Marbella, take a trip to Gibraltar and ride the cable car to the top of the famous rock, enjoy the ambience of the local village or just relax by one of the hotels pools.

Day 7: 126 miles

The adventure continues as you now head north to our next overnight stay in the city of Seville. Seville is the capital of Andalusia and is situated on the banks of the Guadalquivir River which divides the city into two halves: Seville and Triana. Your four star hotel is set in the Triana district and is just a short walk across the river to the centre of Seville.

Day 8: 196 miles

As you leave Spain behind and enter Portugal the scenery now changes to soft rolling hills and open plains with cork and olive trees dominating the landscape. Tonight’s four star hotel is located by the historical centre of Evora which is reputed to be one of Portugal's finest towns. It is a true open-air museum with the Romans giving it its most famous landmark, the Temple of Diana. Dating from the 2nd century, the temple is one of the best preserved Roman monuments in Europe.

Day 9: 215 miles

As you continue your journey along Portugal’s famous traffic free roads the rolling countryside eventually gives way to the mountains as you enter the fabulous Serra da Estrela National Park. Your hotel for the evening is superbly located in the mountains and affords panoramic views over the Cova da Beira valley.

Day 10: 260 miles

Today’s carefully planned route winds its way to the Duoro valley and follows the river along the border which separates Portugal from Spain. Now back in Spain you ride through the Sierra de la Culebra hunting reserve which is located at the southern fringes of the Cantabrian Mountains. Your hotel for the evening is a traditional Spanish hotel dating back to the 19th-century. This former mansion house is located only yards from the historic town centre.

Day 11: 195 miles

The stunning scenery and great roads just keep coming as you now cross the province of León and head north back towards the Cantabrian Mountains and the Picos da Europa national park. Your day ends as you board the ferry in Santander for the overnight crossing back to the UK.

Day 12:

Afternoon arrival in the UK  

With detailed route maps and GPS coordinates guiding you every step of the way this could just be the self guided tour you have been looking for. The riding in the mountains can as always be challenging but if you are an experienced rider or a competent first timer this tour would be suitable.
