8 Day Guided Magical Off-Road / Enduro Motorcycle Tour in Granada, Spain

Granada, Andalusia, Spain

Spectacular Motorcycle Tour Spain

Without doubt, what really make a unique and memorable enduro / trail tour are its terrain, landscape, and scenery. Good organization, comfortable accommodation, reliable bikes, and expert guides should come as standard, but in addition, Sacromonte off road offers some of the most spectacular routes you will ever experience. Why not fine tune your riding skills along the same routes covered in the ISDE competition of the year 2000?

The tour starts and ends in one of the world’s most popular cities, Granada. You pass through rich, lush valleys on route down to the Mediterranean coast, where you can enjoy the sunset in a pretty beachfront hotel. Then, there are the amazing semi-arid desert landscapes of the Gorafe badlands, where you will get to see a little known megalithic site, before heading up to one of Europe's highest mountain ranges for some spectacular views. This tour is for real Enduro enthusiasts and takes in the original trails of the Granada 2000 ISDE. Enjoy!

El Cortijo or Las Villas in Granada

On your three nights' stay in Granada, you will have two options of accommodation. You can stay in the private rural “cortijo complex” just three kilometers from the center of Granada, or alternatively at Las Villas.

El Cortijo provides an authentic rural environment for relaxation close to the heart of the city. Those wishing to upgrade to a more luxurious experience have the option of staying at one of the four spacious, modern villas with easy access to the center of town.

  • Option 1: El Cortijo

The Cortijo, located in one of the oldest, emblematic districts of the city, lies within over 50,000 square meters of private grounds. The center of town is accessible on foot or by bus at just three kilometers from the town center. It is recently renovated with central heating, parking, barbecue, and Wi-Fi provided throughout.

There is a common room with TV and videos, pool table, table football, and a breakfast room. The complex has three pleasant patio areas and a terrace with views, where you can relax with a good book or chat away watching the sunset. The ideal place for off road riding and nature enthusiasts in a peaceful, natural environment.

  • Option 2: Las Villas

Convenience, comfort, and relaxation is guaranteed with the use of a swimming pool, jacuzzi, underfloor heating, private garage, and a patio for sunbathing. It is a great place for resting after a day of off road touring. Why not treat yourself? Each of the three incredibly spacious villas are located in a quiet residential area, far enough from the bustle of the city center, but close enough for the convenience of getting there.

The area is easily reached by main road connections and served by regular bus services. Its south facing aspect provides magnificent views of the snow topped Sierra Nevada.

Casa Blanca in Almuñécar

On one night of the tour, you will stay at Casa Blanca. It is a beachfront hotel in the pleasant semi-tropical coastal town of Almuñécar. It is great for views of the Mediterranean sunset while sipping a long cold drink.

Cortijo Berchel in Gorafe Desert

On three nights of the tour, you will stay at “Cortijo Berchel” in Gorafe Desert. It is an amazingly unique desert cave hotel with swimming pool. It will be a spectacular and unique accommodation experience in the heart of the desert. Private, beautiful, and well away from it all. Enjoy the afternoons relaxing by the pool.

Daily itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Granada

Upon arrival in Granada airport, transfer to the accommodation and enjoy a welcoming dinner in a restaurant opposite the Alhambra Palace. Get to know fellow riders and discuss details of the tour.

Day 2: Granada - Almuñecar (160 kilometers / 100 miles)

Ride on the spectacular route to the coastal town of el pueblo de Almuñécar, stopping off at the renowned wine cellar “Bodega Señorio de Nevada” for a taste of some fine local wines and then, on to the mountain village of Albuñuelas, in the lush country region of Valle Lecrin. Here, you will be trying out some delicious traditional local cuisine, and get the chance to admire remnants of its medieval architecture and spectacular views of its gorge and surrounding snow topped Sierras.

You will then continue your quest towards your destination along a route once taken by such illustrious X and XI century travelers as Al Idrisi, the world’s first geographer, and the Berber Andalusí diplomat Leon el Africano, who frequently traveled to Granada from the Sahara. On arrival in Almuñécar, we’ll chill out on the beach with a G&T and bed for the night in a beach front hotel.

Day 3: Almuñecar - Gorafe desert and badlands (150 kilometers / 94 miles)

Rev up for a pure KTM desert raid to the Gorafe desert and Negratin badlands area. A route that is singular, extreme, well off the beaten track and even takes in a forgotten ancient archeological site. Consider it a mini Stonehenge without the tourists, fences, and ticket offices. Lunch is at Restaurant Tio Tobas for a leg of lamb and then a ride towards the town of Baza, before spending the night at the incredible desert hotel “Cortijo Berchel”.

Day 4: Gorafe desert and badlands (210 kilometers / 131 miles)

After breakfast at Cortijo Berchel, you are roaring off again in direction Almeria, through terrain that could be described as the “Cappadocia” or “Grand Canyon” of Spain. The very singular landscape in this region has been created by what the Moors called “Wadis” - dry river beds that become torrents during periods of rain, cutting their way into the land to form an endless horizon of deep ravines. The result is like some kind of extraterrestrial scenery with a tinge of red, just to make you feel you are somewhere faraway, like planet Mars.

Of course, Mars as it may seem, you will not be left without fuel for the body, so you will be making a “pit stop” in Quemada for a selection of fine wines and cold meats, before heading back to Cortijo Berchel for more local gastronomy and a well-earned rest.

Day 5: Gorafe desert and badlands (190 kilometers / 119 miles)

After breakfast at 10:00 a.m., you will be revving up for further incursions into the desert for another day of exploration and quality enduro riding. By now, you will be more used to the terrain and will have the confidence to push your riding skills a little more to the limit. As before, you will be stopping for food and drink before returning to Cortijo Berchel for your final evening of rest and relaxation at.

Day 6: Gorafe desert and badlands - Granada (220 kilometers / 137 miles)

The final route of the tour takes you through a landscape of stark contrasts of semi-arid plains, mountain terrain, and fertile valleys. You will be making your way up to the “Sierra Nevada” mountain range, one of the highest in Spain. Up there, very often it’s the freshness of glittering snow and bright blue skies, lasting sometimes right up to the end of May, and enjoy some pretty spectacular views.

Down the other side, you will head down to Quentar for lunch, then Dudar and Guejar Sierra, on route back to Granada. Your final night will be spent at the “Cortijo”, where you will be presented with a token of a very memorable experience and a farewell party.

Day 7: Rest Day

You are free to do as you please and take the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Granada under your own devices. Sacromonteoffroad is happy to advise you on the best places to go and what to do.

Day 8: Departure from Granada

Today is the day you say your goodbye.
