Torre del Mar & Granada

Our trip will be both a bike holiday and a bike trip. First we will spend 3 days and nights in Torre del Mar in a hotel next to the beach on famous Costa del Sol. From there we will do 2 day tours. Subsequently we will ride to Granada while our bags are being transferred there. In Granada we will be staying in a small and nice city hotel in order not to miss out on anything of the rich cultural life there. 2 full days and nights are planned there before returning to Torre del Mar on an alternative route. We will enjoy another warm evening on the Mediterranean Sea, before returning to the airport and to our homes the day after.

Granada and the Sierra Nevada

El Embalse de las Bermejuelas

A fairytale of Arabian Nights: the halls, patios and gardens of the Alhambra but also the Albaícin with its oriental tea houses, spice markets and artisans are worth the restday that we will allow ourselves in Granada.

Whoever came here looking for the extraordinary challenge, may take a ride up "The Queen of Mountain Roads" all the way to Pico Veleta in the Sierra Nevada. From Granada, which lies approx. 670 m above sea level, in a stretch of 53 km, one will have to climb to a sensational altitude of 3.394 m.
