Let's talk about Spain
Hello to our friends on the other side of the Ocean!
We’ve missed you and we are so excited to welcome you back to our sunny shores.
Good news we hear, you’re all vaccinated up and Spain is well and ready to open its arms and borders for your visits.
Passport and credit card out already? But can’t decide where to go? We’ve got some great options and suggestions to get you started.
We know you probably aren’t looking for next weekend. After all, you still have to secure some time off from telecommuting and find those flights. Really it’s perfect as the end of summer in Spain is ideal for those slow days on the bike, followed by a glass of local red, a seaside dinner, or a mountain feast, when the light lingers long enough still to have the most hours of the day.
Keep on reading for our suggestions on some great cycling destinations, for you and your two wheels, to celebrate being outside after a long 18 months.
Visit Calpe for the perfect coastline and the ideal hills behind. This area is famously the pro cyclist’s winter training ground for a good reason. The region has a few great cycling themed cafes, great bike shops, hotels and food. Try the famous Val d’ebo climb loops for a good challenge, or book onto a fantastic 6-day tour.
VUELTA CAMP MURCIA
Fan of pro cycling? Check out our partner, Etiquette Cycling’s well-timed Vuelta Camp in the quiet region of Murcia. Go with these experienced local guides to watch the world tour pros take on the last grand tour of the year, whilst testing your legs on the same roads.
This one is a unique one for anyone looking for an intensive 3-day itinerary, with the opportunities to see the amazing city of Barcelona and end at the cyclist’s paradise of Girona. Take in Montseny, Rupit, and the legendary Rocacorba, of course.
7 days or 10 days? We could even say stay for that many years! Mallorca, the Balearic island, is host to famous climbs like Sa Calobra, gorgeous beaches and year-round sunshine. Book now and head over in just a few weeks. Stay in seaside hotels and enjoy the shopping and cafes on the secure and quaint island.
Looking to book later in the year? Try the Andalusian region in October, for weather that still feels like summer, and take in the famous white painted villages along the mountainsides the region is famous for. See the beautiful city of Ronda, with its breathtaking bridge, and cycling through olive groves, hazy fields and lush mountains all in the same day.
And don’t worry!
With epico’s zero risk booking policy, you can receive a 100% refund on your deposit if you have to cancel your trip due to covid.
