Madrid, the adventure begins
Our guide service will come to pick you up from the hotel, airport or train station of your choice. The main goal of this stage is to bring everyone together, all of those who are going to be part of the group and offer a tour orientation. During this session, we will be able to start get to know each other, as well as review every last detail of the tour with the guides. And as a final event, there will be a welcome dinner.
Gredos ¡Here we go!
Ready, set... go! And so it begins with an adventure stage through the mountains. With everything you need in the cases on our BMWs, we start our motorcycle tour from Madrid and get moving north. This is where we’ll put our bikes to the test for the first time, the Guadarrama mountain range, natural boundary between the Region of Madrid and Castile and Leon. Having warmed up after the first few kilometers, we will make a stop in Segovia. There we will get to enjoy one of the most famous dishes in the local traditional cuisine, the cochinillo (suckling pig). And for dessert, as the grand finale, we’ll cross our guide’s favorite mountain pass and finish the stage in the Gredos mountain range.
A new day dawns. Nature lovers are in luck. After a full night’s sleep and an energizing breakfast, we get underway towards the Jerte Valley. Under our wheels is one of Spain’s natural havens. Newly asphalted roads and a unique landscape, populated by mostly cherry trees, this place asserts itself as a formidable location for motorcycling lovers. Behind every curve of the winding mountainside, lies Plasencia and its reservoir. The end of the stage will be in the city of Cáceres.
Mar da Palha
At day 4, we’ll leave behind Spain and this is where our Portugal’s Motorcycle Tour will take place. We will be riding our BMW bikes from Caceres to the river Tagus. Its riverbed will be our guide when the comes of crossing the geographical boundary that divides the Iberian peninsula in two, Portugal is before us. We’ll cross the country, east to west, following the course of the river until we get to the Tagus Estuary Natural Reserve, located at its mouth. Just a few kilometers later, we’ll reach the capital. The arrival in Lisbon crossing the Vasco da Gama bridge, more than 12 kilometers long, will be one of the magical moments of the tour.
Rest day or not. Those who wish may enjoy a special extra trip that our guides will plan for them. The area of Sintra, Cascais and Estoril is great for a joyride. However, if what you need is some rest, Lisbon offers a wide variety of possibilities from a day at the beach to leisurely riding the tram along its avenues.
Back on the bike. This time we’re headed north. The Peniche fortress will give us a perspective of Portugal’s shipping past, as well as a panoramic view of the Atlantic. Possibly one of the best locations for a once-in-a-lifetime photo! The inland roads in this part of the country, more fun for a motorcyclist than those on the coast, will take us to Coimbra. In this old medieval town, birthplace of the Portuguese culture, we will make camp for the night and the next day we’ll ride on to Porto.
A new day before us of rubber-burning fun. Eager to continue on the road, we’ll race down the road. We will climb from Coimbra to Aveiro. There’ll be a stop to eat. The beauty of its water channels, so similar to those of Venice, are a joy to behold. After enjoying the local cuisine and taking a picture in the old town, we’ll be back on our way. The final part of this stage will take us to Porto, second largest city in the country. Once the our motorcycles are parked, we’ll have a glass of Porto’s famous wine, named after the city.
Crossing the border
Last kilometers in Portugal. This day we will ride through history. We’ll glide through the curves that make up the border that has divided the Iberian Peninsula in two for centuries. Lunch almost before the border, and then we’ll ride over the imaginary line that separates us from Spain. The end of the stage has a hidden surprise that only those who join the tour will discover.
The end, see you soon!
Time to say goodbye to the rest of the group after this great adventure. It is the time pack our suitcases, take our memories and say goodbye. See you next time!
