Spain by bicycle

Spain, claro que si!

Ah, Spain! Let yourself be lulled by the magic of the Spanish lands, from the peaks of the Pyrenees to the Catalan beaches. Rich in history, culture and beautiful landscapes, the southernmost country of the European Union is ideal for an exceptional cycling trip. Meet the legend in Santiago de Compostela, immerse yourself in the Mediterranean atmosphere of the island of Mallorca, taste the pleasures of the Costa Brava; all choices are good!

Tranquilo, but not too much

Spain is a country of contrasts: you will be surprised to see the cities and villages empty at 2 pm, time for lunch and especially... for the siesta! On the contrary, you will be surprised if you wake up in the early hours of the morning and hear the streets still full of joy and shared happiness. Spaniards love to party, and they know how to rest!

It's harder to adopt this lifestyle when you have dozens or even hundreds of kilometers to cover in a day. Still, you'll take the time to taste the best tapas you can find in the carrer de Barcelona, those huge street blocks typical of the Catalan capital, and you'll have the opportunity to catch your breath on the majestic rocky peaks of the island of Mallorca offering an unobstructed view of the big blue Mediterranean.

Whether you choose the Costa Brava and its Catalan charm, Mallorca and its exceptional panoramas or a crossing of the Iberian Peninsula towards Portugal from the mythical Santiago de Compostela, Vélo Québec Voyages offers you the best of Spain!
