A bicycle leaning against the Roman bridge of Cordoba


1001 Nights in the Occident

8 Days / 7 Nights
A bicycle leaning against the Roman bridge of Cordoba

Expect vast expanses, rolling hills and impressive Spanish coastline. Expect picturesque cities and Moorish influences in architecture and lifestyle. Vast and fascinating, this is Andalusia! You cannot get any closer to the impressive region in southernmost Spain than by bike. On the nine-day bike tour you will soon feel how harmoniously European and Arab culture merge here. Almost every day you hop onto your bike and immerse yourself in the world of bullfighters, fiestas and the world-famous flamenco. Of course, there is enough time for your own explorations. It’s also practical that you don’t have to worry about your suitcases during a cycle tour without luggage.

Learn a little more about Andalusia every day: you can do this on a cycle tour with Eurobike. The southernmost region of Spain shows off its beauty when you get very close – and you will definitely be on the bike. For nine days, you will explore the fascinating landscape with its famous cities of Malaga, Granada, Seville and Cordoba. With the bike you are wonderfully flexible and can stop wherever you like. Maybe between shady olive trees? Or do you prefer the winding streets of the Moorish city of Carmora?

  • Urban life in Seville: Modern architecture meets traditional Andalusian architecture in Seville.
  • Córdoba and the Mezquita: The second largest Moorish building in Europe after the Alhambra enchants with numerous details such as the ‘Forest of a Thousand Pillars’.

 A good physical condition and experience with longer day tours are recommended, because the routes a hilly. The Eurobike luggage transfer service ensures that your heavy bags are always waiting for you at the hotel so you can reach your destination relaxed. This leaves more time for the really important things on your cycling holiday.

Itinerary at a glance

In Seville, Andalusian art meets modern architecture, and, in Cordoba, you will admire the "Forest of a Thousand Pillars" in the Mezquita Cathedral. In between, you will enjoy tapas, red wine and rest in the olive grove.

Walk through the historic centre of Antequera with its 30 steeples.

Hotel (example): Hotel Parador


Welcome briefing and bikefitting in the morning.The bike tour will begin with a ride on the old railway line through the beautiful countryside to Lucena. In one of the most important olive oil-producing regions of the world, the famous oil is pressed in the mills.

Hotel (example): Hotel Los Bronces


You will continue your journey along an old railway line passing vast olive groves. Wonderful views over the hills accompany the cyclists. The inhabitants of the region live mainly from agriculture and are very tradition-conscious people. This is also reflected in towns of Cabra, Zuheros and Dona Mencia.

Hotel (example): Hotel Mencía Subbética


The Sierra Morena with its foothills frames the former European Capital of Culture. This romantic area is surrounded by pine forests and an impressive solitude. The route leads on almost empty streets mostly hilly towards Córdoba. Every now and then, you will pass farms, which specialize in the breeding of fighting bulls and enjoy a special reputation in Andalusia. In Córdoba explore the witnesses of the dazzling cosmopolitan past. With the Great Mosque Moorish architects created one of the most powerful Moorish building in Europe

Hotel (example): Sercotel Selu

In the wide valley of the Guadalquivir, you will leave Córdoba on an old Roman connecting road. Ecija is the capital of horse breeding. From once important Franciscan monastery in Palma del Rio, the monks journeyed to America to proselytize.

Hotel (example): Hotel Monasterio San Francisco


Also today, the Guadalquivir is the first companion. You will continue your tour through the Campiña of Seville, a gently rolling landscape of fertile farmland to the west. Carmona is a city that has not changed for 150 years, it has Baroque palaces, churches and monasteries and is surrounded by intact Moorish town walls.

Hotel (example): Alcazar de la Reina


Today, you will cycle over the gently rolling plateau of Alcores to one of the most fertile agricultural areas in Andalusia. For centuries, Alcalá de Guadaira supplied Seville with bread and water and it is considered to be one of the cradles of flamenco. Former haciendas of the Kingdom of Seville, today just as large farms as in former times, line the road. Our destination is Seville, where three of the most important operas are performed: Don Juan, the seducer; the cunning barber Figaro; and Carmen, the femme fatale, who lost her life somewhere between the tobacco factories and the bullfight arena. Two international exhibitions helped the city to futuristic buildings and great green parks.

Hotel (example): Silken Al-Andalus Palace
