  • Day 1

    From the Capital to the Wild Mountains

    Meet your guides in Seville, the vibrant capital city of Andalucía. We’ll kick off our trip with a van transfer to the town of Montellano, the starting point for a scenic climb up the western slopes of the Serranía de Ronda mountains. Encounter plunging gorges, white-washed villages peppered across the horizon, and majestic griffon vultures and eagle owls as they swoop playfully across the sky. After lunch at a posada in the village of El Gastor, we’ll give our bikes a break and hop into a Land Rover for a safari-style drive to our luxurious eco-retreat, Finca La Donaira. This award-winning property is like nowhere you’ve ever stayed: swim in refreshing mountain water, meander the meadows and organic gardens, or visit the stables of La Donaira’s Lusitanos, the world’s oldest breed of riding horses. Tonight’s dinner is a beautiful spread of organic ingredients and biodynamic wines—all from La Donaira’s farm and winery.

  • Day 2

    A Spectrum of Villages

    Get a lift from La Donaira to the village of El Gastor—our bikes are ready and waiting to begin an epic ride north into the hills. We’ll coast downhill, then spin across a rolling landscape interspersed with golden wheat and silver olive groves. Then comes a gradual climb to Olvera, a pueblo blanco historically inhabited by Celts, Romans, Visigoths, and Moors—all influences evident in its architectural identity. Continue riding to Setenil de las Bodegas, a funky town full of bright-white bars, restaurants, and homes carved from troglodyte cliffs. Take the van the rest of the way to La Donaira or choose to round out the day riding all the way back. Dinner will be lovingly prepared for you at La Donaira.

    Meals: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

  • Day 3

    Sierra de Grazalema and Ronda

    Our last day of cycling is the most challenging, but also the most beautiful: starting once again in El Gastor, we’ll ride south into the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park on roads frequented by pro cyclists like Bradley Wiggins and Alejandro Valverde. Stop in the beautiful village of Grazalema, known for its uniformly gorgeous white buildings and unique micro-climate. Our ride continues to Ronda, one of the oldest cities in Spain and a place beloved by American creators like Orson Welles and Ernest Hemingway. Of course, we’ll visit the iconic Puente Nuevo bridge that spans the El Tajo gorge and perhaps even fit in time to shop for souvenirs. Call it a day and take the van back to La Donaira, or seize the opportunity for extra miles on the return ride. We’ll regroup this evening for an apéritif, followed by a gastronomic feast that celebrates the end of our time together in Andalucía.

  • Day 4

    Adios Andalucía

    One last breakfast of homemade muesli, organic eggs, and robust coffee, and we bid farewell to La Donaira. Transfer by van to the place where it all began in Seville (or we can arrange a drop off in Ronda for a little more time in one of Ernest Hemingway’s favorite cities).
