Visiting areas of truly outstanding natural beauty such as Los Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo Natural Park and Las Alpujarras, you will be taken on an unforgettable motorcycle trip.  Experience this on a Royal Enfield Bullet and you will soon discover how amazing these robust machines really are.

After lunch you can relax on one of the many small beaches or swim and snorkel in the crystal clear water of the Mediteranian Sea. If you fancy something a little more adventurous, we can also organise scuba diving or sea kayaking.

     (Our guesthouse is self catering with full cooking facilities, there are shops and supermarkets in the village if you like to prepare your own food or you can eat out at the tapas bars or restaurants).



  •   On arrival at our Guesthouse you are required to pay an Accidental Damage Deposit of 500€  (or equivalent if you prefer to pay in your local currency) in cash to cover damages to any of the motos. This will be returned in full at the end of your tour, provided no damage has been caused. Most of us have dropped our bikes at some stage of our riding career, I have found Enfields to be very forgiving in this respect. Minor damage can sometimes be fixed easily in-house but sometimes it can not. If any of the motos are dropped or crashed causing damage which cannot be repaired in this manner, you are liable for the cost of the repair. This will be deducted from your Accidental Damage Deposit. Thankfully this is a rarity!
  •     While out on a tour there will be a few stops during the day for refreshments e.g. tea, coffee or non alcoholic cold beverages. Please respect the drink driving laws here in Spain while out on a tour and limit your intake of alcohol (for obvious reasons) to a glass of beer or wine with your lunch. After your tour for the day is over, your evenings are free to do as you like.
  • All rentals include third party liability insurance. For insurance purposes all riders must be over 25 years of age and be in possession of a valid motorcycle licence for at least two years.
  • As motorcycle touring is considered an adventure sport we advise you before arrival in Spain, to arrange travel/personal accident insurance that covers adventure sports. This must include medical cover and repatriation in your home country. The following link is an example of travel/personal accident insurance available in the UK.  Travellers from other countries should enquire locally to find out what is necessary to participate in an adventure sport in Spain.
