Road Tour of the Cazorla National Park

This dramatic and challenging 650km Road Tour of the National Park of Cazorla, Seguras y Las Villas takes in the most breathtaking and remote areas of the park.  From the high scrubby peak of "El Yelmo" (an HC climb), through the lush verdant forests of Pine that are home to the abundance of wildlife in the park, to the fecund valleys that support the millions of Olive trees that make Andalucia so unique.

The route circumnavigates the park, taking in all three ranges, staying at several hotels dotted around the park.  We ride for three consecutive days, taking in the bulk of the climbing, including the Queen stage, with two major Cat 1 climbs and an HC, (totalling some 3,000m in 125km with an IBP index of 204!).  We include a rest day on Day Five, when a short ride is optional, depending on the fatigue level of the group.  Or indeed, relax and enjoy the Spa facilities of the hotel or explore the local town of Cazorla.  Thursday (Day Six) we are back in the saddle with a loop around the Las Villas range and Friday we head back to our starting point and a well-deserved treat at the luxury boutique hotel we started from.

 

 

A support vehicle ensures any mechanical issues in the remote areas can be dealt with swiftly, that food and water is on hand (no cafes or garages to refuel here!) or indeed if the terrain proves too challenging, that there is the comfort and safety of a lift for you and your bike to the next overnight stop!  All luggage is carried to the next hotel on the tour and airport transfers from Murcia International Airport are included.

 

 

650km and 12,000m of ascent, depending on an optional day off... and minor route variations.
