The 5 Fronteras (From hotel to hotel)

In Andalusia, especially in the province of Cadiz, many villages have ‘de la Frontera’ in their name. This originated in the 13th century when the Moors (Arabs) fought the Christians in Andalusia. Many towns were on the border (frontera) of both their territories. We discovered that it is a beautiful region for cycling, partly through Parque Natural los Arconales. And did you know that many ‘de la Fronteras’ belong to the famous Andalusian pueblos blancos (white villages)?

The 5 Fronteras , the showpiece of our cycling holidays is a 7-day round trip with an average of 90 Km per day . You cycle in small groups throughout the province of Cadiz . Highlights include the climb from Grazalema to Puerto de las Palomas (1183m) and the ride from Castellar de la Frontera to Grazalema . Our support vehicle is equipped with the necessary facilities for the road and also luggage transport . You cycle along quiet roads and pass the famous white villages of Cadiz ( Grazalema, Arcos de la Frontera, Vejer de la Frontera, Castellar de la Frontera ). After cycling, take the opportunity to discover any village or town , like the Sherry bodegas in Jerez de la Frontera , or enjoy a beach day (El Palmar) during the rest day in Vejer de la Frontera.
