Summary

Pedal along quiet country roads, admiring ancient villages and natural parks in this 8-day cycling tour around the UNESCO World Heritage city of Segovia. Visit the fascinating Royal Palace of San Ildefonso to explore its lovely gardens and cycle along the spectacular Duraton Canyon Nature Reserve. Stop by the medieval towns of Pedraza and Sepulveda for a chance to see the Romanesque churches and the breathtaking sunflower and wheat fields, which paint a wonderful hue across the land.

Itinerary

Day 1, Arrival in Segovia
This bike tour begins in the monumental city of Segovia, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. You will spend the first night in the city and have a chance to explore its many historic jewels like the towering Roman Aqueduct, a veritable marvel of ancient civil engineering which still provided water to the city only last century. Take time to enjoy a chilled glass of wine in the exquisite 'Plaza Mayor' while contemplating the magnificent cathedral, then take a stroll to the fairytale, ornate Alcazar, where Queen Isabel sent Christopher Columbus on his exploration of the Americas.

Day 2, Segovia to Collado Hermoso - 26 miles (42 km) - Climb: 349 m
Small country roads and pretty rural countryside will bring you to the charming village of Collado Hermoso. You will have a chance to stop at the famous Royal Palace of San Ildefonso and visit its fabulous fountains and gardens. We recommend you eat along the way in one of the many excellent restaurants at Torrecaballeros.

Day 3, Round trip to Turegano - 23 miles (36 km) - Climb: 227 m
Today's route takes you away from the mountains to reach the little historic town of Turegano, home to a medieval castle worth a visit. This extraordinary castle towers over the village, incorporating an earlier Romanesque church in its construction. Why not stop in the plaza to enjoy an aperitif or a delicious traditional meal!

Day 4, Collado Hermoso to Pedraza - 19 miles (32 km) - Climb: 227 m
This morning, cycle through small villages and wooded landscapes to reach the beautifully preserved town of Pedraza and its medieval castle. Considered one of the most beautiful walled cities in Spain, this place will surely be a highlight of the trip! Take time to wander through the cobbled streets and to browse the interesting artisan shops. There is a photo opportunity on every corner!

Day 5, Round trip Pedraza - 18 miles (29 km) - Climb: 250 m
Today, explore the countryside around Pedraza. You will come across incredibly quaint villages anchored in a time warp! You will witness rural life as it was many years ago. The rustic style is ever present with perfect examples of rural Romanesque churches set in stunning countryside.

Day 6, Pedraza to Sepulveda - 19 miles (31 km)  - Climb: 379 m
Today, cycle from the foothills to the plains of Castilla. This route takes you through fields of sunflowers and wheat. Eventually it will lead to the hill top town of Sepulveda, where you can have a picnic near the natural spring or take a dip in its crystal clear waters! As your destination looms in to view you will marvel at this medieval jewel with its narrow winding cobbled streets and historic noble houses. Take time to discover the hidden treasures that Sepulveda shelters around every corner.

Day 7, Round trip Sepulveda: Duraton Natural Park - 22 miles (37 km) - Climb: 607 m
On this your last cycling day, enjoy the highlight of your trip, the spectacular Duraton Canyon Nature Reserve.
