Riding through the remote Karoo semi-desert, and specifically the ancient Tankwa Karoo basin, is a unique experience not available to many. This is a harsh place with temperatures that can soar as high as 40℃, and drop well below 0℃ at night. Towns are generally at least 100 kilometres apart and connected by a network of varying quality dirt roads. Expect everything from super-smooth, hard-packed gravel, to loose sand, tyre-shredding rocks, and badly corrugated sections. The roads are largely unmaintained, and left to the mercy of the weather. The region is very sparsely populated, and it is not uncommon to ride for an entire day without seeing another person. Your typical Karoo town is very small, but the people who live there are known for their generous hospitality and warmth.
On this trip we will draw a unique tour of Andalusia, the northernmost region and probably with the most contrasts in Spain. We will depart from Seville which, together with Venice and Genoa, is one of the three cities with the largest historical center in Europe, a special city. We will start by touring the peculiar marshes of the Guadalquivir to get closer to the foot of the Sierra: the Subética Mountain Range (whose morphology was caused by the same forces that originated the Pyrenees). This mountainous system acts as a barrier to winds loaded with water that arrive from the Atlantic Ocean. Its height, humidity and location create a surprising territory that houses subtropical forests, a set of small villages with great history and charm and ... an incredible network of roads and paths that will allow us to cycle through each of its corners. We will cross three of the eight Andalusian provinces on our trip: Seville, Malaga and Cádiz.
Lanzarote, the most pristine of the Canary Islands, with its 400 volcanoes, wild nature and its eternal spring climate, is the perfect place for those who want to spend an "active" holiday on the pedals in winter.

Lanzarote is famous, in addition to its sometimes lunar landscape, also for its vegetation made of cactus, aloe and colorful bougainvillea that contrast with the black of the volcanic rock and the blue of the sky and the sea.
The Atacama Desert is the driest in the world, being protected from humidity on both sides by big mountain ranges, as the Andes along the interior and the Coastal Range towards the Pacific Ocean. We will travel through this territory with our bikes to enjoy the beauty of its geologic creations and natural phenomenon. We will ride about 700 km starting at the sea level and gradually reaching 4.000 mt to get a final altitude of 4.500.

Take a plane anywhere in Europe, and in 2 or 3 hours you will be in Marrakech, ready to head down to the desert where a completely 19th century lifestyle still exists. Sandy (but rideable) gravel roads, clay huts and smiling kids awaits fro you on every small village, and for 3 days you will be living in a different world...
