Spain, dream destination for motorcyclists
The Iberian Peninsula is a paradise for motorbikers: breathtaking landscapes, relaxed atmosphere, varied nature and above all well-kept roads make a motorcycle trip in Spain a very special experience.
Discovering Spain by motorbike means first and foremost fun on winding roads that offer fascinating panoramic views of wide valleys, imposing mountain ranges, the Mediterranean Sea or the Atlantic Ocean. Small bodegas, which offer tasty tapas and other Spanish specialities for the hungry rider, can be found in almost every village and offer great opportunities to get to know the real Spain and its inhabitants.
A motorcycle tour through Spain seeing everything would take a few weeks. Great if you have the time, but if not, choose one of the many great regions of the country first. In any case, you can be sure to ride through spectacular landscapes which all have their charms.
If you love the mountains and like narrow roads with many bends, a tour through the beautiful Pyrenees on the border with France is highly recommended. If you are looking for unique views of the idyllic Mediterranean, the Costa Brava coastal roads in Catalonia are your best choice. The sunny Andalusia in southern Spain and the islands of Mallorca and Tenerife offer a great mix of picturesque coastlines and a mountainous hinterland.
Due to the mild climate, you can also go on motorbike tours in Spain in the months of March or October, in the south even throughout the year. The south is an ideal terrain for winter escapes of all kinds. Extend your season with a motorcycle trip in Spain and experience exciting days on the road.
Of course you can enjoy wonderful motorcycle tours in Spain in spring or summer, but the beginning of spring and late summer are ideal, as it's usually not too hot in these seasons. The best surprise, you'll be wondering if someone has closed the roads just for you and your motorbike. No, it’s not a trick, low traffic does exist and it is found here.
You can enjoy challenging routes and a mountain world in the Pyrenees, which are in no way inferior to the Alps - but only riding in the warm months are recommended here. Extremely winding pass roads, where you only see other vehicles occasionally, characterize this mountain range and make motorbike tours in this area a real pleasure. An almost untouched wilderness with a varied vegetation in the midst of mighty peaks, many of which are more than 3000 meters high, create a very special atmosphere.
The route from Sant Feliu to Lloret de Mar is just one of the most beautiful routes along the Catalan Mediterranean coast. You will encounter secluded bays where you can bathe in the warm Mediterranean Sea even in October, and extensive pine forests and traditional villages where hectic is a foreign word. In the beautiful hinterland of Catalonia there are also places worth seeing such as the old Montserrat Monastery, spectacularly situated in the mountains, which also promises an exciting journey simply getting there.
