Asturias, Cantabria the Basque country & Galicia offer quiet roads, lush green landscapes, beautiful routes along the Costa Verde and hardcore stage finishes for the Vuelta España. The people of Northern Spain are open and friendly, the food hearty and delicious, making this unique region perfect for a cycling tour.
The Vuelta España passes through Northern Spain every year and every year riders complain about the brutality of the finishing climbs: test your legs against the steep slopes of El Angliru and Los Machucos. Climb the Peña Carbarga, the Alto de Ermita, the Lagos de Covadonga and more.
The cities of San Sebastian & Bilbao in Pais Vasco also offer a fabulous mix of cycling & culture. Tuck into gourmet food, lounge on La Concha beach and climb such delights at Monte Igeldo, the Jaizkibel, Monte Oiz & the Sollube.
