Details of the Cabo de Gata trip

Try this mountain bike adventure and pedal through Cabo de Gata by bike. Discover its volcanic past through an arid landscape of great beauty.

It is an experience to pedal through such a terrain next to the sea and discovering unique coves.

There are 3 stages of moderate level for those who want to live a different experience.

Day 1: Arrival at the first hotel in Almeria

The first hotel will be the starting point of the trip. This is where you will arrive the night before you start pedaling.

Day 2: Almeria – San Jose, 44 km and 430m+44 km

The first stage will take us along the coast to San José. We will pass through the marshes and along stretches of track to the town of Cabo de Gata. Get to know the Cabo de Gata Lighthouse before ascending to enjoy one of the most special panoramic views of the Park. After a nice descent, we will see the Genoveses beach before arriving at our hotel.

Day 3: San José – Las Negras, 44 km y 840m+44 km y 840m+

After a good breakfast, we will leave San José heading north along roads, tracks and some stretches of road to Los Escullos. We will see little towns like Isleta del Moro, a small town with a lot of charm on the seashore, wonderful coves like Playazo or Cortijo del Fraile, famous for the “Crime of Níjar” and a source of inspiration for Federico García Lorca in the work Blood Wedding. At the end of the stage we will pass through Rodalquilar and its old gold mines in the mountains

Day 4: Las Negras – Agua Amarga, 46km 900m+37km 680m+

During the last stage you will enjoy the interior landscape of the province of Almería until arriving at one of the most beautiful and well-known towns on the Almería coast, Agua Amarga.

During the first kilometers you will go up the boulevard towards Hortichuelas along the old road and you will pedal without traffic. It is the longest climb on the route, but when you reach the highest point the effort will be worth it. This stage also passes through several coves between wide and well-maintained tracks, until reaching the town of Agua Amarga with hardly any difficulties.
