Start the year as you mean to go on with this five-day tour riding under the winter sun, and welcome in the new year in style in Malaga! Enjoy smooth coastal roads that hug the shoreline, stunning views of the undulating landscape, and a taste of the local culture, food and hospitality.
The tour starts with a warm-up ride on the outskirts of the city of Malaga, el Puerto del León. In the evening, discover the bustling city centre and some of the best local bodegas with a wine and tapas tour. On day 2, after a short transfer out of the city to delve further into the region, ride the meandering rural roads and witness a local man-made wonder, the Caminito del Rey, a wooden walkway pinned to the face of the El Chorro Gorge! The ride offers spectacular views of this area and some more beautiful climbs. The ride on day 3 will head out directly from the hotel. After a hearty buffet, ride east along the coast, the sparkling Mediterranean Sea accompanying you along the flats, until you turn inland and begin the first steady climb. This near 100-km ride offers stunning views of the coastline from way up in the hills surrounding Malaga.
A natural marvel awaits on day 4 as, after a short transfer, the route winds through the countryside towards the natural park of El Torcal de Antequera, home to awe-inspiring, milennia-old rock formations. Then, on day 5, the final ride of the Classic Climbs of Malaga tour will start after a transfer to Alfarnate. The ride snakes southbound through the Malaga hills towards the coast and back to the city.
Spend 5 days soaking up this beautiful coastal region of southern Spain by day and welcome in the new year in style! Stay in the 4* NH Málaga hotel, just a few minutes from the old town and a 15-minute walk to the beach, ideal for exploring the city centre and stretching your legs after a long ride.
