El CAMINO Tour

This long-haul tour will give you the opportunity to ride one of the BMWs in our fleet for 15 days throughout the roads of northern Spain; the cultural and historical birthplace of the country.

The first week we’ll ride from the Northwest end of the peninsula up to almost the border with France. More than 1000 km on mountain roads with the sea on the clutch side as a companion. The stages corresponding to these days go through the midst of the greenest part of Spain, the perfect place for those who enjoy the landscapes that nature provides.

Once this route is done, great food and the beach await us! We will have a day of rest in the Basque country. There we will enjoy the local cuisine, the world-famous "pintxos". Additionally, the region is located at a strategic geographical point from which our guides will be happy to improvise an extra trip, for example, to one of the French villages close to the border.

Once the first half of the trip is complete, the trail after which this tour is named begins. The Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James), which together when combined with a two-wheeler makes for an ultimate experience.

During the second week there will be a motorbike pilgrimage of sorts, through a series of stages that will take us to Compostela.

This part is also intended, to introduce to you to some of Spain’s cultural relics from the middle ages. The gothic cathedrals in Castile and Leon, as well as the surrounding cities, are an architectural treasure worthy of admiration.

Just before reaching the Galician Region, we will race through and area full of valleys. The green landscapes of the North will appear again before our eyes.

The highlight of our expedition, after traveling the route that leads to Santiago, will be our arrival to the Plaza del Obradoiro. The starting point of the Camino, the place where the Cathedral and the remains of the Apostle lie, is the last step before the Pilgrim's Mass and witnessing how the giant botafumeiro spreads incense through the interior of the temple. It is place of peace that will allow us to mentally review every moment of the journey.

  2. Day 2 The expedition begins

    First day on the road. After a good night's rest and a hearty breakfast, the journey begins with our well-packed luggage and a full tank. On this first leg of the journey we head for the northern part of Galicia. Curves, cliffs and more curves will take us to Estaca de Bares, the northernmost point of the peninsula, where the waters of the Atlantic and the Bay of Biscay meet. An endless mass of water can be seen from the lighthouse, making it one of the best places of our trip to get an award-winning photo. We then head towards the south, to the village of Ribadeo. The end of this stage is at the border with Asturias, where we will continue the journey the next day.

  3. Day 3 Rise early and back on the bikes!

    On this second day we'll head into the Region of Asturias, one of the green havens in Spain. With a third of its territory occupied by vegetation, this area will be a favorite for nature lovers. The route designed by our guides will cover the ancient Kingdom of Don Pelayo from west to east. Our final destination will be Covadonga, on the edge of the National Park of Picos de Europa. The region is known for being the place where the Reconquista began, a seven-century struggle between Christians and Muslims for Spain’s territory.

  4. Day 4 We return to the sea

    After a highland stage, we will go back down to sea level. The Picos de Europa will be the hightlight of the first part of the journey. Later, we will continue riding towards Cantabria on the road that runs along the coast. Expect a second leg full of curves and stretches overlooking the sea.

  5. Day 5 Beach of la Concha

    Fourth day on the road. After a good night's sleep, we get back on the bike once more. This stage will take us to the Basque Country, a mountainous stronghold that maintains its pre-Roman culture in aspects such as language and traditions. We will make a mandatory stop to eat in Bilbao. We'll, afterwards, resume the ride towards San Sebastian. Tire and road will be one covering the distance between Bilbao and the Beach of la Concha.

  6. Day 6 Day off, or not

    Our first day of rest will be in Donostia, San Sebastian in Basque. This city was named European Capital of Culture in 2016. The place offers a wide variety of leisure possibilities such as its famous cuisine and beach. It is located in a bay, La Concha, which is more than a beach, it is the soul of the city. After our visit, the old town is the perfect place to recharge. The most representative local and traditional cuisine is the "pintxos". If you’re the restless type, our guides will be happy to organize an extra trip to France, for example, on this day of rest.

  7. Day 7 The road awaits

    Our first day of rest will be in Donostia, San Sebastian in Basque. This city was named European Capital of Culture in 2016. The place offers a wide variety of leisure possibilities such as its famous cuisine and beach. It is located in a bay, La Concha, which is more than a beach, it is the soul of the city.

Before the end of the day we will have had the opportunity to glimpse a new group of mountains. Following the trail of our guides, who remain determined to avoid straight lines that connect the stages, we’ll be able to enjoy the Natural Parks of the province of Burgos.

  9. Day 9 Picos (III)

    The day begins. The anticipation of knowing that we return to the Picos de Europa is made palpable. A route that ends on a high point, on of those challenges we like, awaits us. This third day, through the green mountains of the North, will provide us with a new series of natural landscapes and quality roads for our eyes and motorcycles.

  10. Day 10 A well deserved rest

    We'll rest on the highland of the Picos de Europa. This day of rest will allow us to team build, share our impressions and experiences with each other and, above all, rest and get ready for the end of the journey. There is also a trip planned to the caves of el Soplao.

  11. Day 11 Leon

    Good morning! Orange juice, toast, coffee, gas and back to riding. On this stage we'll be going down the slope, the best time to enjoy the mountainside. After a few small villages, the road breaks through with plenty of curves ahead. At the end of the journey, we'll reach León. Such is the cultural importance of this city that our usual tourist visit will be longer than usual.

  12. Day 12 The asturleonense mountains

    The penultimate stage, the last bend in the road. We'll make this mountainous natural border between Asturias and León our own playground. Almost reaching our starting point, close to the natural landscapes that we saw on the first kilometers of our tour, is the border between "old" Castile and Galicia, known for its traditional cuisine, based on cattle farming and hunting.

  13. Day 13 Santiago, The Patron

    Our pilgrimage ends here... We’ll begin the day, for the last time, crossing the border of the Region of Galician. We have come to the end of the road. Two weeks of pilgrimage have gone by, from the mountains to Castilla. We will ride on, through the same countryside that the pilgrims have travelled throughout history. Finally, we’ll arrive in Santiago, thus reaching the climax of this adventure. The entrance to St. James’ City, the resting point for all pilgrims, the Plaza del Obradoiro. Serenity reigns in the air.

  14. Day 14 Flight back

    After two weeks of riding together, it's time to say our goodbyes. The group will split up and everyone will get back to their points of origin. Needless to say, you can count on Beebiker to be at our clients’ service until the last moment to help them get to the airport or train station.
