Start in Roncesvalles and end in Leon, the trip "Spanish Camino By Bike: The Pyrenees To Leon" is a self-guided bicycle trip that takes 10 days. You will travel through Leon, Burgos, Akerreta and 10 other destinations in Spain. "Spanish Camino By Bike: The Pyrenees To Leon" is a private trip which includes accommodation in hotels, meals and others.

Cycle from Roncesvalles to Leon as you ride back through history along the Camino de Santiago. For more than 1000 years the Camino de Santiago (or Way of St James / Compostela Trail) has represented the adventure of a lifetime for pilgrims and history buffs alike. While the 790km French route from Roncesvalles to the Cathedral of Santiago has been well trodden by hiking boots and horse hooves through the centuries in more recent times the pilgrimage route has become a natural magnet for cyclists seeking out iconic routes. Beginning in the foothills of the Pyrenees and continuing along the Camino to the historic cathedral city of Leon, this exhilarating ride, which is the first half of the full cycle route along the Spanish Camino, takes in some of the most breathtaking landscapes, unique monuments and typical villages of northern Spain. En route, step out of the saddle to savour the rich Spanish gastronomy, experiencing traditional regional cuisine and excellent wines. Each night you'll stay in atmospheric hotels offering comfort at the end of a hard day's cycle which is intrinsic to this historic adventure.
