Tour Details

Welcome to Hooked on Cycling holidays and our cycling holiday in Spain. This biking vacation in Asturias (the north coast of Spain) we have graded as a level 2 cycle tour. The green north coast of the Iberian Penninsula makes the perfect setting for a cycling holiday. In the distance you see wonderful hills and some more mountainous terrain, you cycle past the coastal ranges of El Cuera and El Sueve in the shadow of the impressive snowy peaks of the Picos de Europa. Passing tiny coves and charming coastal villages, you ride from Cantabria into Asturias.

Some of your routes follow sections of the Pilgrims’ Route to Santiago de Compostela (Saint James’ Way) so you will find ruins and Romanesque chapels along the way. The cider-making capital of Villaviciosa makes a good introduction to Asturian gastronomy before sending you off to the friendly city of Gijon for a tapas feast to celebrate the end of a satisfying journey. Extra nights can be booked to enjoy the beach in Gijon or to visit the outstanding Gothic gem, San Salvador Cathedral in nearby Oviedo.
