SHP Bicycle Adventures  
Spain and Portugal

Cultural exploration, language, food, sun, surf, and fun

After flying to Madrid and catching the overnight train to Lugo, you’ll step into history as you bike along ancient Roman walls, over arched stone bridges, and past medieval walled towns. You’ll cross into Portugal for a few days, then head up Spain’s gorgeous Atlantic coastline to the ferry for Isla Cies, a spectacular island national park where cars are not allowed. You’ll get to try all kinds of tasty empanadas and Spanish treats in Santiago de Compostela, where narrow medieval streets recall pilgrims who walked hundreds of miles in the Middle Ages to the ancient cathedral that you visit.

For the last week of the trip, you’ll store your bike in Madrid while you explore two of Spain’s most vibrant cities. In Granada, you’ll explore this city’s historic Arabian influences on a tour of the impressive Islamic architecture of the Alhambra. You’ll also catch a flamenco show before traveling by train to Barcelona, the fourth most visited city in Europe. You’ll take in the city’s history and culture, and you’ll also relax on the Mediterranean beaches that are perfect for picnics and swimming. Your last stop is Madrid, where you’ll eat lunch at outdoor plaza café and see all the famous sights, including the Prado Museum and royal palace, before catching your flight back to the States. This trip offers a great balance of biking and sightseeing in a location famous for its history and beauty.
