Motorbike touring in Spain & Portugal

Spain & Portugal is a spectacular region for motorbike touring and just a stone’s throw away!

With a wide range of climate and terrain, you’ll find a region to suit you at any time of the year: the mild Summer in the verdant north makes for ideal touring, whilst the high plains of the interior give a warm welcome in the Spring and Autumn. Winter riders will find conditions ideal in the southern latitudes of Andalucia and Portugal’s balmy Alentejo.

Fly or ferry, alone or in a group, our tours are designed to let you ride at a relaxed pace, take time to discover each destination and stay in comfort in our selected small hotels and guest houses.

Safe hands, but with a lighter touch…

Without a guide or a rigid tour itinerary not only will you save money but you’ll enjoy total flexibility both at the planning stage and whilst ‘on the ground’.  At the same time you’ll benefit from expert personal guidance with the itinerary design and arrangements as well as helpline support from our locally based team whilst in the region – the best of both worlds!

Whilst we don’t offer a full ‘concierge service’ we are happy to arrange key meals (usually dinner on arrival at each stage) and milestone visits along the way.

Northern Spain and Portugal – the perfect backdrop for the bike road-trip of a lifetime!

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

  • Fantastic service from start to finish. The team was very helpful from the first point of contact and helped us shape our holiday to Northern Spain, creating the holiday we were looking for.  Bikers group 2019
  • Everything: Excellent hotels with good locations, facilities and staff. Good suggestions about where to visit. Very useful advice in advance documentation that we could download – an excellent system.
