If you are looking to spend your next motorcycle touring holiday on some of the very best roads in Europe, both over mountains and through valleys and gorges, then this motorbike tour will provide you with everything!

We take an overnight mini cruise to Spain arriving in the early afternoon so that we can enjoy our riding route through lush countryside to our Parador Hotel in the heart of the Picos de Europa national park, where we include complimentary local wine with dinner. The Picos is one of the truly unspoiled areas of Spain still unaffected by large numbers of tourists. Traffic free roads through the mountains - yes please! The contrasts within these 300 square miles of spectacular natural beauty linking Cantabria and Asturias are amazing. Looking up you will see dramatic rocky mountain peaks rising up to over 8000 feet, small isolated mountain villages are tucked away in the higher mountain slopes almost completely isolated, deep gorges plunge down vertically into deep river valleys, sparkling lakes and magical forests make this an adventure playground just waiting to be explored. And your motorcycle is the perfect instrument upon which to play!

After three nights exploring the best roads in the Picos de Europa we continue our motorcycle tour in Portugal to ride the verdant wine-growing area of the Douro Valley. Our base for three nights is four star hotel near the Douro river and a great place from which to explore the unspoilt countryside of this beautiful part of northern Portugal, appropriately described by writer Miguel Torga as "geological poetry". We will enjoy a ride-out following curves along the river, through undulating terrain, past Moorish castles and what seems like endless vinyards. We will also visit the UNESCO heritage site of Porto, where tall-masted ships still anchor at the dockside with their traditional cargo of Port oaken barrels. Our prepared routes will take you out on uncluttered roads where you are more likely to encounter cows and sheep rather than oncoming traffic - enjoy the views, enjoy the ride and enjoy the friendly hospitality of the locals for this is really what this tour is all about!

We take a cross country route to our last hotel night at another four star hotel in Burgos, and the following morning we will ride down the Ebro river canyon and past the Ebro reservoir before dropping down into Santander for the return overnight ferry.
