Tour Highlights
2024

Sun Sept 15th - Friday Sept 27th 2024

Day 1 and 2

Sunday: We use a very convenient ferry departure from Plymouth, which leaves in the afternoon. This allows for a leisurely ride down over the weekend from wherever you are in the country.

The modern ferry boasts live music, quizzes, choice of dining, seasonal swimming pool, cinema and whale watching. 

Monday: Santander to Potes. 75 mile ride. Welcome to Spain!

Stunning roads, twists and turns, Hermida Gorge, hotel base-camp in Potes.

Day 5 and 6

Thursday: Potes to our hotel in the Asturias mountains. 170 mile ride, hugging the banks of 3 lakes. The views and lookout stops are gorgeous.

4 peaks climbing more than 5,000 feet! Changing scenery here, including another gorge.

Friday: Mountain Hotel.

We go in search of 10 amazing Graffiti works of art, some in very obscure, hidden places, a bit of Hide'n'seek!

Day 9 and 10

Monday: We head a little way down the Hermida Gorge before turning off and climbing the hairpins to a little-known look out

point, with views over the gorge. After a short stop we head back to Santander and board the Ferry.

Tuesday:  THIS TOUR HAS BEEN EXTENDED BY 3 DAYS! We now arrive back in the UK Friday 27th from Santander. Updated info coming soon. 

Day 3 and 4

Tuesday: The Picos Triangle and bends galore, stopping for the classic deer and bear statues. This then leads us, following twisty, fast roads, to beautiful Riaño and its stunning lakeside stops, to Covadonga and a monastery built in to the cliff wall.

Wednesday: Taking in breathtaking views, virtually empty roads and a dam along a cliff-lined road. We climb to 6,000 feet in the mountains to gaze upon jaw-dropping scenery, with valleys and rivers. These days will stay with you forever.

Day 7 and 8

Saturday: We leave the Hotel and ride back to Potes, taking in a different route with a stunning gorge, lake views and mountain backdrops.

Wednesday: We ride the Hermida Gorge once again, but in reverse, giving a totally new experience and visiting a magical place where we have an optional gorge walk and not-to-be-missed viewpoints.
