Spain: Andalucia

Cycling in Andalucia: Seville to Cadiz

  • Striking Moorish architecture, historic hilltop towns and sizzling local tapas
  • Authentic accommodation in Parador hotels and an Andalucian hacienda
  • Tapas and traditional flamenco in the streets of Jerez
  • Spectacular sandy beaches of Cadiz
  • Exhilarating cycles on undulating terrain that follow the river Guadalete

It could be argued that Andalucia is the most quintessentially Spanish part of the Iberian Peninsula. Defined by its Moorish architecture this land of contrasts boasts fertile land, historic hilltop towns, stunning beaches and excellent local food. This self-guided cycle takes you from the magical city of Seville, along small country roads and through Mediterranean woodland to the town of Arcos, one of Andalucia's most dramatically positioned pueblos blancos (white villages). From here you take a journey into the heart of the Flamenco traditions of Jerez - famous for its sherry wines, before ending in Cadiz; thought to be the oldest city in western Europe. The accommodation is in spectacular traditional and modern hotels of the region, and the food is plentiful, fresh and delicious.

Day 1: Arrive Seville

Make your own way to Seville. We recommend arriving early or arranging extra nights to ensure you spend as much time as possible in this magical city of international fame. Its culture, history and folklore make this an exceptional tourist destination. Legend tells us that the city was founded by Hercules and its origins are linked with the Tartessian civilisation. Now it is the capital of the Andalucian region and most widely known for its ornate Alcazar castle complex, built during the Moorish Almohad dynasty, and its 18th Century Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza bullring. The Gothic cathedral is home to the tomb of Christopher Columbus and a famous belltower; the Giralda. The birthplace of Flamenco is generally accepted to be this area of Andalucia, and Seville is the perfect place to enjoy an evening show alongside your traditional cuisine.

Day 2: Carmona 50km/31mi

Leave the city using its extensive network of cycle tracks. Head north-east to reach a dedicated cycle route on a good dirt road beside the river Guadaira. Cycle amongst flat landscapes of cereals and sunflower plantations, you will pass several small towns before you reach the historic walled town of Carmona, which boasts several churches, palaces, and an imposing Arab fortress.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3: To Montellano 68km/42mi

Leaving picturesque Carmona you ride south, a delightful route along quaint country lanes overlooked by sunflowers and olive groves. Today's ride takes you through several small, traditional towns where you can enjoy a refreshing drink in one of the many bars along your route. Finish in the small town of Montellano with its pink marble buildings and natural monuments; perfect for an evening of relaxation.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 4: To Arcos de la Frontera 60km/37mi

From Montellano you can see the mountains of Grazalema far in the distance. Today you will experience some hills, but not mountains, as the cycle takes you into pristine Mediterranean forest. Most of the cycling is along very quiet country roads, except for a section (about 8km) along a 'Via Verde' (a disused railway line now used as a cycle lane). You will cycle past the typically Andalucian town of Puerto Serrano; a good place to stop for lunch. You end in Arcos de la Frontera; one of Andalucia's most dramatically positioned pueblos blancos (white villages).
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5: Follow the river Guadalete 56km/35mi

From Arcos you pedal across undulating terrain, following the river Guadalete downstream along quiet country roads. Mediterranean woodland and agricultural land characterise the landscape. There are many small villages to stop along the way for a welcome break! The town of Jerez holds worldwide acclaim for its sherry and brandy production, but is equally famous for its fine horses and Flamenco music and dance.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 6: To Cadiz 62km/38mi

Heading south today, you reach the sea and the ancient city of Cadiz. The ride will take you into the stunning small town of El Puerto de Santa Maria, where there are many restaurants tempting you with the fish catch of the day. Cadiz is the oldest city in western Europe, with monuments such as the grandiose structure of the Cathedral Nueva, and the red brick building of the Gran Teatro, along with the stunning beaches are enough to encourage any visitor to fall in love with it. Your ride will end along the beach cycle paths, and lead you to your last Parador for one final night of luxury.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7: End Cadiz

You trip ends after breakfast in Cadiz. If you have time it is possible to arrange additional nights here, or there are regular trains back to Seville taking around 1h 35mins.
Meals: Breakfast

Paradors & Hotels, Seville to Cadiz

On this trip you will stay in 3 different Paradors. A Parador is defined as 'luxury accommodation in a traditional building' and Andalucia is an excellent place to experience some truly stunning accommodation. Highlights include an impressive Arabic castle from the 14th Century in Carmona and a historic noble house in the centre of Arcos. In Seville, Jerez and Cadiz the centrally located hotels are 3/4-star, and in Montellano you spend the night in an authentic relaxed Spanish hotel with swimming pool and excellent views of thwe surrounding countryside. Your final Parador is in Cadiz, its modern architecture offers excellent views of the bay. Most of the accommodation have pools, but please be aware that these are open on a seasonal basis.

All prices are based on 2 persons sharing, so if there is an odd number of people travelling in your party or you are travelling alone, there will be a compulsory supplement for a single room for the tour duration. For a solo traveller there is an additional charge to cover transfer costs.

Eating and Drinking

All breakfasts included.

Food is a hugely important part of southern Spain and a key part of Andalucian life is eating out. Dishes will comprise of some of the best locally grown produce. Olives, almonds, lemons and oranges are used in cooking, or in refreshing salads. Along the coastline you can be sure of fresh seafood and fish and the Serrano ham is a speciality from the mountain villages. Tapas originated in Andalucia, and in many places you will often receive small snacks served free with your drinks in a bar. Typical Andalucian dishes include; Gambas al Ajillo (prawns in garlic and chilli oil), Paella/arroz, Coquinas (clams) served with garlic, parsley and white wine, Calamares (squid), Tortilla Espanola, and churros (strips of deep fried dough) which are often eaten with hot chocolate, perfect in the early hours after a night out!

For this trip there is the possibility to upgrade to half board in some locations.


Extra nights: Please contact us for details.

Reviews

Everyone who goes on a Headwater holiday will be emailed a link to our post-holiday questionnaire where they can give us an honest assessment of all aspects of their holiday - everything from how quickly we answer the phone to how clean the hotels were - plus an overall rating and comments about their holiday.

Any feedback collected is posted to our website, so that people can make an informed decision based on past experiences before heading off on holiday. We don’t edit the reviews, the only thing we do is proofread them and alter any typos, where necessary, to ensure they are easy to read for everyone. All reviews will be published (except in certain extreme circumstances), and a member of the Headwater team will respond to any constructive criticisms/comments under the reviews, at their discretion. So, for the real tales, twists and turns of our holidays, look no further than the reviews from our previous travellers.


Mr HARRISON, 25/06/2022

This was more of an adventure than a relaxing holiday and had the potential to be a real health and safety issue.The attention to detail was not there.The first day of 40 miles was tedious and contained miles of dusty pot holed dirt tracks .It would have been much better to start the ride in Carmona .A pity but the worst organised Headwater hoilday we have been on it needs looking at again .


Mrs Murdoch, 25/05/2022

Superb accommodations, excellent app guide, interesting cities but a misconceived holiday. Cycling into and out of big cities through the inevitable busy and sometimes scrappy outskirts is not enjoyable. Most of the tracks were difficult and uncomfortable apart from the Via Verde. Our advice is to go for a city break to visit cities and stay for a few nights then go for a cycling holiday in more interesting and scenic countryside. Senderos y Pueblos fine, Senderos y Ciudads not good.


Mrs Reilly, 02/05/2022

Excellent organisation and support, all hotels were fantastic in superb locations, navigation app was brilliant. Would definitely recommend this holiday.


Mr Ford, 05/04/2022

The Seville - Cadiz route provides a great cycle through this part of Spain. Not to hilly and last couple of days pretty flat. Lunches can be a bit basic, but evening meals were excellent with a bit of searching and waiting until 8pm. Seville, Carmona, Arcos, Jerez and Cadiz all have lots to offer.


Mrs Bowring, 03/10/2019

N.B. Will send this separately. Thanks.


Ms Bailey, 19/09/2019

Interesting location and places stayed. Parador hotels in particular fabulous character and hilltop locations gave spectacular views. Bikes good quality which was just as well as note of caution some of the off road tracks very rough sharp stones potholes. The first day while shorter mainly off road so took a lot longer and left us exhausted luckily roads better after this.
