1. Motorcycle route along Costa da Morte
If you are a fan of lighthouses, beaches, cliffs and inlets, this route is made for you. We suggest you start in Arteixo, very close to A Coruña, and visit fishing villages such as Malpica, Muxía and Camariñas. You can also get to Finisterre and mingle with the pilgrims; you cannot leave there without visiting its lighthouse.
The route through this Galician enclave covers more than 200 kilometers that you can do in a couple of days; Therefore if you like to explore, we recommend doing it calmly and not forgetting to visit each beach or corner that catches your attention.
2. The Camino de Santiago by motorcycle
This pilgrimage route, one of the most famous in the world, can also be done in mode. It is a unique opportunity to get a feel for the pilgrimage culture, the landscapes and the gastronomy of the north of the peninsula. On the back of your motorcycle, you can travel the so-called French way in about 8 or 9 days.
3. The Trans-Pyrenees Route
It is a well-known motorcycle route that runs through the Pyrenees and it consists of an extension of 500 km, from Cap de Creus, in Girona, to the Cantabrian mountain range. In this way, it runs through the autonomous communities of Catalonia, Aragon and Navarra, while to the north, it borders the French regions of Occitania and Nueva Aquitaine. It takes typically 2-4 days, although some riders need slightly more time.
4. Around the Cadi Moixero Park
On this occasion, the motorcycle route crosses the provinces of Barcelona and Lleida with a distance between both points of 70 km one way and another 70 km back. The time you must invest will be about 4 hours without stops to go and return. You can start by skirting the southern part of the natural park, which has 727 hectares with many protected species.
5. The towns within Alicante by motorcycle
Perhaps a lot has been said about the coastal towns of the Alicante coast, but not so much about how picturesque and authentic its inland is. The Natural Parks of Carrascal de la Fuente Roja and Sierra de Mariola cherish incredible routes and landscapes that you must travel hand in hand with the culinary specialties of their populations.
If the routes that run through the parks are complex and winding, the road that connects Alcoy and Jijona is not far behind. There are many secondary roads through the interior of the province that hide wonders such as Guadalest and its reservoir. Don’t stop exploring them.
6. On route through the Alpujarra
La Alpujarra is perhaps one of the most beautiful and bohemian areas of Andalusia. Touring the eastern towns on a motorcycle, from The Puerto of La Ragua —at 2000 meters above sea level— to the Lecrín valley will take your breath away. Take the A-4130 and let yourself fall in love with the magic of towns like Mairena, Válor, Yegen up to Trevelez. In this high-altitude municipality – at more than 1400 meters – you can taste its famous ham.
