About a half an hour transfer to Alhaurin el Grande, dinner, meeting and off to bed, tomorrow is an early start.

Day 2. Malaga – Aracena

We start our journey heading north on rural roads between Sevilla and Cordoba passing countless white villages, olive and citrus groves. Once we reach the Sierra Morena National park, we turn west and continue on beautifully winding country roads , towards Aracena, famous for the chestnut fed Black Iberian pigs and their locally cured delicious ham. Our hotel for the night is a beautiful converted convent.

Day 3. Aracena – Sintra

We stop for coffee in one of Portugal´s most beautifully preserved medieval towns, Évora, and then continue towards Lisbon.We stop for a picture at Cabo da Roca light house and then head to Sintra.

Sintra is a charming resort town in the foothills of Portugal’s Sintra Mountains, near the capital of Lisbon. A longtime royal sanctuary, its forested terrain is studded with pastel-colored villas and palaces.We aim for early arrival so we have time to explore this fairy tale place.

Day 4. Sintra – Manteigas

We start north following the coast and then turn north east towards the Sierra da Estrela, the highest mountain range in Portugal.We hop on a highway for a short distance to save some time for the exciting mountain roads ahead of us. We spend the afternoon on bendy mountain roads with amazing views until we arrive in our destination in the center of the national park..

Day 5. Manteigas – Porto

We start the day with some exciting riding northwest ,heading back to the Atlantic coast. We will start seeing wine groves all around us as we get closer to Porto, our destination today.The town that gave the country (and port wine) its very name, Porto is Portugal´s second-largest metropolis after Lisbon. The plan is to arrive by early afternoon to allow you to explore this fabulous city.

Day 6. Porto – La Alberca

Today´s route has it all.The roads, the views, the scenery will take your breath away. Following the majestic river Douro along the steep wine covered hillsides on narrow twisty roads , we pass  little villages spread all over the valley. Early afternoon we cross back into Spain and after Ciudad Rodrigo we reach the Sierra de Francia Natural park .La Alberca,The charming town was founded in the 1300s and was the first village to be declared a National Historical Monument by the Spanish government. A walk around its historic center gives us a taste of the tradition in its houses and streets. Today surely is one of the memorable days of the trip.

You will be fascinated by the picturesque villages with their little stone houses surrounded by rugged landscape.Later we make a little detour north to Avila, one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Spain. Its world famous walls stand guard over the centuries-old artistic and cultural heritage found inside. We have a quick lunch and continue to Toledo,  known as the “city of the three cultures”, because Christians, Arabs and Jews lived together there for centuries. Behind its walls Toledo preserves an artistic and cultural legacy in the form of churches, palaces, fortresses, mosques and synagogues. This great diversity  led to it being declared a World Heritage Site.

The roads are real heaven for every biker and the views are stunning.  You can occasionally spot a deer or a mountain goat grassing next to the road.We stop for lunch at the famous monument of the Santuario de la Virgen de la Cabeza. .

    Enjoyed every moment! Breathtaking views, challenging roads, historic sites, great guides… I’d highly recommend it to anyone who likes bikes or want to test own riding skills (must have some experience). Already thinking about new adventure.

    This was the first time I went on a Motoadventours motor bike trip and was not sure what to expect.
    I was pleasantly surprised how well organized and fun the trip turned out to be.
    The riding was spectacular, bikes new, hotels terrific and food well above average. The riding skills of the group varied, but Hana the leader took that into account while leading. I also compared other tours and this was by far the best value for what we received. I would definitely recommend this tour.

    Thank you to Hana and David for organizing this amazing adventure. We enjoyed every minute of this trip including wonderful mountain passes and roads, excellent hotels and superb food. Both Hana and David were excellent hosts, extremely knowledgeable about the routes and very attentive to the needs of their guests. The BMW motorbikes are great to ride and in excellent condition.
    I can highly recommend Motoadventours and will definitely join them for another tour in the near future.

    Incredible. This tour exceeded my expectations on many levels: bikes were late model and well maintained, roads were twisty and mostly off the beaten path yet still very well surfaced relative to our roads here in North America. In turn this meant less traffic and you could spend a good portion of your daily ride “in the zone”. Hotels were very comfortable and ideally located for an end of day walk to the nearby attractions, meals were excellent, and of course Hana and David were very personable and professional. You can tell these guys really enjoy what they do. I went a few days early to explore some areas the tour didn’t cover. Motoadventours made it easy for me and brought the bike to my area hotel along with a GPS and maps. Would I recommend this tour? Absolutely. Would I travel with Motoadventours again? Definitely. Thanks for such a memorable trip!!!

    Hana and David are a great team that can put together a memorable experience wherever they take you!

    Amazing vacation.

    This is the second time I join Hana and David for a motorcycle tour. First time I joined them for a “Green Spain” tour in 2016.
    Hana and David are the most gracious hosts with perfect organization. Hotels, food and of course the actual riding. Winding road and spectacular views.

    The BMW bikes are new and perfectly maintained. Pure pleasure to ride.

    Perfect vacation for clearing your head. You just focus on the next bend. Everything else, really everything else, is taken care for you.

    Hana and David thank you again!

    This was our third tour with MotoAdventours and we enjoyed it a lot, as we did the previous ones! Everything is well organized, food is great (don’t fear of starving!) and the hotels are wonderful. We had excellent weather, excellent scenery, and excellent tour guides. Thank you Hana and David!
