Long tours combine two or three medium tours or extend one of them to reach more remote areas. This tour combines our two tours in northern Spain with the northern part of the Portugal tour, making it an excellent way to get to know the north of the Iberian Peninsula in depth.
On the biker side, the tour is wonderful, with fantastic and perfectly paved secondary roads, a huge amount of curves, (16,254 on the basic route), and very little traffic.
As for landscapes, this tour combines medium and low mountain roads, but many of them surrounded by high mountains, a good number of canyons of great beauty, green meadows, and the beautiful Cantabrian coast.
In terms of accommodation, on this tour we can offer you some truly exceptional hotels, some of them on the edge of the beach, combined with historical buildings and even a hotel in the middle of the Picos de Europa natural park, with a cable car at its side that will allow you to comfortably climb to the top of the mountain where there are spectacular views, (and being in Spain, of course, a bar).
In the cultural aspect it is also a very complete trip, with visits to very interesting cities such as Porto and Santiago de Compostela and also includes other attractions such as Roman mines from the 1st century that 2,000 years later have left amazing landscapes, or a visit to the famous Guggenheim museum in Bilbao.
And finally, in the gastronomic aspect, this tour is simply a marvel that will allow you to enjoy the excellent products that we have in the north of Spain, and one of the best gastronomies in the world.
As you have seen, there are more than enough reasons for this tour to be our client's favorite.
