Spain & Portugal

Douro Valley, Portugal, Europe

Ride the Star Mountains of Portugal and the Picos de Europa

New Routes - This tour has become a firm favourite with our customers, and it is difficult to know how to make it better, however, we believe we have by tweaking the routes to keep in old favourites whilst finding new ones that we know you will enjoy. This as also given us the opportunity to try new accommodation and we are giving you the very best in the form of Spanish Paradors and Portuguese Pousadas. Our tour starts with an overnight ferry from Plymouth to Santander. On arrival, we head southwards into the Castilla y Leon region of Spain before turning westwards to pass through the Montezinho and Peneda -Geres National parks. The beautiful Douro Valley is next, its terraced river banks covered with vines that have made this the Port wine capital of the world. Cockburns, Taylors, and Sandeman are just a few of the famous names you will see along the valley walls. Our next destination is an old favourite, as we head for the Serra da Estrela Mountains, the highest in the country; they offer not only stunning scenery, but traffic free roads that our customers tell us are some of the "best they have ridden". Crossing back into Northern Spain we re-enter the Picos De Europa. What this area lacks in size, it makes-up for with attitude, with its jagged peaks, mountain valleys and beautiful coastline. Our journey is completed as we take the Brittany ferry back to Portsmouth.
