Biking Andalucia - the best mountain biking in Spain

Mountain biking

We offer a one week programme of guided mountain bike rides, using our local knowledge to show you the best of the area can offer.

Alternatively, the cortijo can be booked for a week, with the guide booked when required.

Type of terrain

The area is without doubt a mountain biker's paradise, offering all types of trails including technical single track, long climbs on jeep tracks, forestry tracks up to 2000m, or testing rides up to the Pico Veleta Pass at 3400m.

Details descriptions of some of the rides that may feature in a typical 7 day programme can be found on the Ride profiles page.

Level of fitness required

Little off-road cycling experience is required, though a reasonable level of fitness is necessary due to the nature of the area.

Daily distances vary, normally somewhere between 35 to 60 km /day depending on the trip.

We will always attempt to tailor our routes to suit the requirements and abilities of our guests.

A typical riding day

We normally aim to be ready to begin the ride around 10.00 am. Some routes will begin in Orgiva, whilst other will involve vehicle support. The weekly programme can include a two day excursion, with an overnight stay.

Routes are planned to include photo and refreshment stops and we normally aim to return to Orgiva by 5.00 pm.

We can also include a guided night ride in your programme (we provide the lights).

Why guided rides

The Alpujarras has a myriad of trails, which are not well mapped. Our local knowledge ensures that you get to ride the best of these routes.
