Picos de Europa Bike Tour


Introduction

Our Picos de Europa bike tour offers some of the finest cycling & scenery of any of our cycling tours. The pristine peaks of Cantabria and Asturias are the remarkable backdrop to your daily rides.

This 'hideaways' tour takes us on a remarkable journey through remote, timeless and virtually unknown northern Spain. Never conquered by the Moors and seemingly untouched since the Middle Ages, the Picos de Europa mountains lie only 15 kilometres from the sparkling beaches of the Bay of Biscay. This is cycling paradise: lofty snow-capped mountains and magnificent stretches of beach all wrapped up in one unforgettable tour. 

The journey begins with a visit to the world famous Guggenheim Museum of modern art in Bilbao. Then, a couple of days pedalling along the Bay of Biscay before we head south, riding through the Picos rather than over them. We wend our way through breathtaking gorges carved between massive peaks by fast rivers full of trout and salmon. 

Your cycling tour also includes 2 days of walks along some of the Picos most magnificent paths and one morning spent canoeing along the Deva River. Accommodations include boutique hotels, a manor house and a restored village in the woods.
