"A charming part of this tour takes us along a stretch of light gravel. If anyone feels a tad uneasy about riding on such terrain, no worries at all! You have the option to take the scenic road for about two hours, and you'll effortlessly reunite with us on the other side.

Your comfort is our priority, so if gravel isn't your cup of tea, we'll gladly steer clear of that section. Let's keep the ride smooth and worry-free for everyone!"

Tour Highlights

Picos de Europa
The Picos Mountains

Embarking on a motorbike journey through the twisting hills of the Picos Mountains is an exhilarating experience that seamlessly blends thrill and scenic beauty. As you navigate the serpentine roads that wind through the undulating landscape, the rhythmic hum of your engine harmonises with the natural symphony of the surroundings.

The Picos Mountains, rising majestically around you, present a visual spectacle as their peaks, adorned with a timeless touch of grey, pierce the sky. The hills unfold before your eyes, revealing a tapestry of verdant slopes that create a stunning contrast against the rocky outcrops.

The road, a ribbon of asphalt laid meticulously along the contours of the land, invites you to lean into each turn, feeling the subtle gravitational pull as you carve your way through the twists and turns. Every curve brings a new panoramic vista, a breathtaking glimpse of the valleys below or a distant mountain peak shrouded in mystic allure.

As you ascend through the mountainous terrain, the air becomes crisper, and the scent of pine needles and mountain flora envelops you. The journey is punctuated by the occasional glimpse of quaint villages nestled in the valleys, seemingly untouched by the passage of time.

The Picos Mountains provide a sensory feast, with the sound of your motorbike's engine echoing against the rugged cliffs, the sight of the ever-changing landscape, the scent of mountain air, and the feel of the wind rushing past. Riding through these twisting hills is not just a journey; it's a symphony of nature and machine, a dance between the curves of the road and the contours of the mountains—a thrilling ode to the freedom of the open road.
