Christopher Columbus Tour CCC

Portugal   |  Spain

Discover the home of Flamenco & Fado, of Tapas & Port. Come & experience Spain & Portugal.

On this breathtaking motorcycle tour through Spain and Portugal we will find the origins of Spain’s national dance and the best port in Portugal. But obviously there’s more, like tons of stunning motorcycling roads along the coast, over mountains and around softly rolling hills.

From Málaga, we’ll carve the twisty roads of the Costa del Sol to the Algarve, a spectacular coast that invites you to take a dip. Lisbon is a work of art, with streets so steep that instead of our bikes we have to use our feet to climb them, so bring some comfy shoes!

A long but rewarding riding day takes us across the Extremadura, to Zafra, where we find the time to unwind. The endless curvy roads of the Sierra Morena sweeten our ride to Córdoba, our last stop before we reach Málaga again. With port in our luggage, flamenco in our ears and countless curves under our belts we have to say goodbye. Unfortunately. For now…
