Cycling Holiday in Northern Spain

Following the route of ancient pilgrims we cycle sections of the legendary trail to Santiago de Compostela - the resting place of Saint James. The trip follows the last 200 kilometres of the scenic route through northern Spain, starting on the high plains of the Castilian meseta. We ascend into the fertile region of the Bierzo and traverse the rolling hills of Galicia to the delightful city of Santiago completing our pilgrims' passport as we go.

Cycling Information
On this tour we cycle 283 km over six days (an average of 47 km per day) with a further optional 33 km available. The route is mainly on tarmac. The first day of cycling is relatively flat and the subsequent five days across the rolling hills of Galicia involve frequent uphill and downhill sections. The cycle rides are not accompanied by a cycle guide, except on days 6 and 7 when the Tour Leader will cycle with the group. On the other days the Tour Leader drives the support vehicle, accompanying the ride wherever necessary or possible, and provides clear instructions throughout the ride so you can cycle individually or as a group. We have graded the route as moderate.
Included Bike
