The trans-Pyrenean route

The route that

crosses the border between Spain and France

has many possible variants, depending on the kilometers that we are willing to cover.

However, there is no wrong option: it is one of the star routes for motorcyclists.

One of the possible ways to do this route is

to start in the Cabo de Creus Natural Park, in Girona

After passing through the region of the Arán Valley and enjoying its beautiful villages (Vielha, Bosost, Salardú...), where you can stop as long as you like to contemplate the contrast between the valleys and the mountains.

The route ends in the Basque Country, for example, in the municipality of Hondarribia, which has

the best preserved walled city in Guipúzcoa


In total, more than 600 kilometers perfect for escaping the heat, being surrounded by nature and enjoying well-paved roads and heart-stopping views.

Picos de Europa and the lakes of Covadonga

the Picos de Europa National Park

, which extends through the communities of Asturias, Cantabria and Castilla y León.

Mountain road, ports, viewpoints, gorges

and, in conclusion, a landscape that will delight any nature lover.

The most classic itinerary is the circle that runs through the roads between

Riaño (León), Unquera (Cantabria) and Cangas de Onís (Asturias)

and which passes through some such emblematic places as

the Hermida gorge or the Covadonga lakes.

Although it depends a lot on the itinerary chosen, it can be around 200 kilometers.

Los Muertos beach.

The essential tour of Almería is the one that covers the AL-3115 road, which crosses the natural park until it ends at the beautiful

Cabo de Gata Lighthouse

San José and Las Negras

Cliffs, lighthouses and beaches are the keys to this route that

ends at the end of the world

Starting from the A Coruña municipality of Arteixo, it is a road that, bordering the coast, can add up to 200 kilometres.

To cross the Costa da Morte is to enjoy good gastronomy and contemplate its beautiful villages and fishing enclaves, such as Caión, Corme-Porto,

Malpica, Camelle or Camariñas


An essential for those seeking the tranquility of the Galician region and its mild temperatures this summer.

The oasis route (Aragon)

It runs about 80 kilometers in the community of Aragón.

It is a journey of contrasts, in which

the Aragonese steppe plains are mixed with authentic oases

, since the central points of this route are the three most important reservoirs of lower Aragon.

The Silver Route

One of the longest, perfect for those who want to spend several days on the road.

Almost 1,000 kilometers that cross all of Spain, from Gijón to Seville, and that

follow the same route as the old Roman road, the Via de la Plata

, which went from Mérida to Astorga.

cross four communities and seven provinces

, with a great variety of different landscapes, and both curves and straight lines.

It allows you to visit some of the most beautiful cities in Spain and enjoy landscapes as spectacular as those offered by the

Jerte Valley in Extremadura.

(declared of cultural interest), or the beautiful Asturian mountains and valleys.

Among the obligatory stops are Astorga, Salamanca, Béjar or Plasencia.

, just one hour from the capital, is a place to come and take refuge this summer.
