Tour Description

Since ancient times, there has been a route through the mountains, valleys and plains that unites the north and south of Spain, when the Romans invaded the Iberian Peninsula in 218 B.C.  They gave great importance to the  roads  covering the whole territory,  especially  the Silver Route . (The Vía de la Plata). We will ride along parts of the old route enjoying the historic cities , incredible mountain roads and delicious cuisine. Exploring Extremadura is a journey into the heart of old Spain, from the country’s finest Roman ruins to mysterious medieval cities and time-worn villages.

  1. Jonathan

    Hana and David are wonderful hosts and the tour was fantastic. My son and I rode the 1250’s and were very happy with the choice and nearly new motos which were all in perfect condition.

    Our tour was in October of 2021 and though the travel anticipation from the US was anxiety ridden, it turned out to be a non-event with plenty of time for connecting flights to Malaga. We were met with smiles and hugs at the airport and our arrival hotel was very convenient and comfortable. I would recommend the offered upgrade at the front desk which offers a welcome snack, champagne and pool view.

    The road selection was a good mix of highway, sweepers and tight-twisties over several mountain passes. I think they saved the best for last! The roads in the vicinity of Ronda were fantastic!

    After the first night, all of our hotels were Paradores which I believe are historic properties owned and run by the Spanish government and each incredible for its own legacy. The menu in each of the hotels had a common page and a regional page of offerings, so your favorites were available each night with the ability to be adventurous too.

    As restored castles and fortresses, each one was located central to the village or town and most were within the walled section, with cobblestone streets. It was great riding through the narrow streets and archways on the way to home for the night!

    We had a fantastic time and it was a life-adventure to share with my son.
    Thanks H and D!
