This tour will take place in May 2019 and will be slightly different from the original one we have been conducting in this part of Andalucia over the past three years. We would like to explore in more detail the Cazorla National Park and also try out some new hotels in the area, this will allow us to get feedback after the tour and fine tune the itinerary before adding it to our main touring schedule.
The itinerary is as follows:
Day 1: Arrival
Arrive at either Málaga Airport (AGP) or Granada Airport (GRX), where you will be met by one of our team and transported to the guesthouse in Vélez de Benaudalla.
Day 2: Velez – Laroles – Gorafe - Baza
After having breakfast, your tour will begin. Leaving the guesthouse around 9:00 we start making our way east through the lower Alpujaras before turning north through Laroles, Puerto De La Ragua and into “Parque Megalitico de Gorafe”. After our visit to this amazing place we shall then head into Baza, our final destination for the day and where we shall be staying this evening.
Day 3: Baza - Cuevas del Campo - Riopar
This morning, we'll set off north in the direction Cuevas de Campo before passing through Parque Natural Sierra de Castril and Parque Natural Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y las Villas and eventually onto Riopar, where we shall be spending the night.
Day 4: Parque Natural Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y las Villas
Following breakfast, we shall be spending the rest of the day exploring this area on our motos. The National Park covers an area of 2140sq km and is the largest protected area in Spain so hopefully we shall see some amazing sights.
Day 5: Riopar - Cazorla - Guadix
Today we travel down the western side of the National Park and El Tranco, passing through Cazorla village before leaving the national park and making our way to Guadix. This area is famous for it’s cave houses and we shall be sleeping in one of these tonight.
Day 6: Guadix –Turon - Velez
Today will see us continuing south before heading west and into La Contraviesa (one of the major wine producing areas of Andalucia). We’ll then travel south before making our way along the Mediteranean coast line and back to the headquarters in Vélez de Benaudalla, arriving around 18:00.
