Description

Highlights:

Unique motorcycle tour in one of Europe's last natural paradises, Extremadura, in the heart of Spain. In the historic towns of Zafra, Trujillo, and Plasencia, you will follow in the footsteps of the Latin American conquistadores who came from here.

Maximum riding pleasure awaits you in the mountains of the Sierra Morena and Sierra de Gredos.

The extraordinary flora and fauna of the Monfragüe Natural Park and the Jerte Valley. Here you follow the course of the Vía de la Plata, the old Roman trade route across the Iberian Peninsula.

You will visit the legendary Guadalupe and its monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Romantic overnight stays in historical palaces and monasteries (Paradore) provide a very dignified ambiance in the evening.

You stop in Merida, the Roman capital of Lusitania founded by Emperor Augustus 2000 years ago.

Cáceres is a place where you could stay even longer, but there are still many beautiful things to discover, such as Monfragüe Nature Park on the way to Guadalupe. The natural park was already protected in 1979 and is home to one of the largest and most representative Mediterranean forest areas.
