Spain Andalusia EASY Bike Tour Write a review

  • Location: Spain
  • Duration: 9 Days/8 Nights
  • Departing from: Seville
  • Tour finishes: Granada
  • Departures 2023: May 9 and Sep 30 and private departures

Andalusia is quintessential Spain. Vast landscapes of undulating olive groves and craggy mountains are punctuated by white-washed Moorish villages perched atop rocky pinnacles. By day, village squares laze in the warm sun, while by night they hum with life as cafes, wine bodegas, and tapas bars spring to life. It is also home to some of Europe’s finest architectural achievements: Seville’s medieval cathedral, Cordoba’s massive mosque/church complex (the “Mezquita”), and Granada’s Alhambra Palace. You will enjoy fabulous cycling, charming white villages known as “Pueblos Blancos,” Flamenco music, and plenty of tasty tapas and excellent wine as you wind your way from Seville to Cordoba to Granada. We have designed this trip as an easy alternative to our other more challenging Andalusia Bike trip.

Chose this tour because of its mix of biking and city tours and it was a great combination. Really enjoyed riding the Via Verde. Hotels were excellent in both the cities and the rural areas. Bikes were comfortable and well maintained. So glad we did this trip!

The Spain tour was awesome. Our two guides Pedro and Claire were equally awesome. The food was excellent, the ride was extremely enjoyable and the accommodations were outstanding. The most beautiful part of the ride was near Zuheroes where we stayed in a hacienda overlooking olive trees as far as the eye can see. A moment embedded in my memory.I highly recommend Mondo Bike Tours!
