Camino del Cid

starting at Albarracín

CAMINO DEL CID

8 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS / 5 DAYS CYCLING

 
Tour Summary

 

The Camino del Cid is a cultural route based on a historical character from the Middle Ages (knight Rodrigo Diaz) and a literary classic (El Cantar de Mio Cid). It crosses a great part of Spain.

 

 

During 5 days we ride a part of the route, from Albarracin to Valencia, where you stay 2 more nights to explore the city. Along the Camino you stay in medieval villages and cross the picturesque interior of the provinces of Teruel, Castellón and Valencia.

 

This completely organised tour starts and ends in Valencia City.

The route partly runs through sparsely populated area. The number of places to stay or eat is limited. That's why we have selected the most suitable hotels for you and provide a number of days your lunch. And what if you find a great 'jamon' (ham) or ceramic bowl as a souvenir? No problem!

Because we carry your luggage every day to your next hotel.

 

The tour is self guided.

You just follow our itinerary (or optional GPS route) from one hotel/B&B to the next.

 

The difficulty of this tour is 3 (on a scale of 5). There's some abrupt ascents or descents.

An e-bike (optional) is perfect to enjoy this tour at ease.

By combining these routes with the bike tour  'Land of Contrasts' (the same difficulty level) or Via Verde Ojos Negros (much easier, almost all the way donwhill) you can make a bike tour up to 15 days.
