Overview

Cycle Tourism trip for the first week of the Vuelta a España on its journey through the mountainous north of Spain.

Experience the passion of the first week of the Vuelta during your tour of Rioja, Euskadi, Cantabria and Asturias. From Madrid or Bilbao we go to Rioja to see the first stage in Spain after the 3 days in the Netherlands, and we stay in Bilbao to continue following the race in the 6 stages through Asturias. Each day there are exciting climbs, unique landscapes near the sea and we’ll see a great fight in a full peloton of cycling stars.

There’s nothing like pedaling on the same roads as the professionals just a few hours after, and enjoying access to the VIP area to see the end of the stage from the best position. With front-row seats at the finish line in the exclusive VIP area, all you need to do is sit with champagne in your hand and wait for the professionals to arrive.

We promise a spectacular cycling trip that captures the beauty of these routes and the highlights of the race. The relaxed atmosphere and accessibility to professional cyclists and their teams during the Vuelta make this trip a very special experience. Accommodation in 4 and 5 star luxury hotels, VIP access to the race areas and bicycle rides along spectacular routes with logistical support at all times in addition to the presence of our experienced guides, we can guarantee that it will be one of the trips of your life!
