Motorcycle holidays: Andalusia
Time to relax, discover und enjoy.
Ride through Andalusia on a bike, follow long coastal roads. Let the gravel fly on your way into the impressive mountains of Málaga. Explore olive oil plantations and enjoy an impressive landscape.
The ideal starting point for your journey on two wheels is the coastal town of Málaga in the south of Andalusia. Málaga is located in the heart of the Costa del Sol. For a quick and uncomplicated start into your vacation we recommend the airport of Málaga. Direct connections are offered from many European airports with flight times of just some hours.
Tip: Only a few taxi minutes away from the airport is the DRIVING AREA motorcycle rental station. The adress is Avenida de la Americas, Nave 8, ES 29130 Alhaurín de la Torre (Málaga) (find the location on Google Maps). You can also book a BMW Navigator with pre-programmed routes along with your BMW bike.
The Hotspots in Andalusia
Among the „must-sees“ in Andalusia is the moorish architecture in Córdoba. You should visit the Alhambra in Granada, the white villages near Ronda and the tomb of Christoph Columbus. Sevilla also holds a number of highlights you should not miss. Explore the national park Las Alpujarras in the Sierra Nevada – it is the second highest mountain ridge in Europe!
Another must for motorcyclists is the back country of Andalusia with all its mountains, which is a highlight for curve-loving bikers. Fantastic panoramic views and a beautiful landscape animate to drive on and on and climb even the highest peaks. The Sierra Nevada is a paradise for motorcyclists with countless curves and bends and high alpine peaks. You’ll never want to dismount here from your bike.
Our tip: Experience the back country of Andalusia with one of our guided tours on our BMW GS models. Information can be found here.
Another must-see are the Alhambra and the Nasriden-palace in Granada, which will leave a lasting impression. Be advised that a spontaneous visit is not possible! Order your admission tickets online and collect them on site.
Besides the cathedral the Alcázar-palace is one of the sightseeing-highlights of Sevilla, the capital city of Andalusia. The medieval royal palace is located at the border of the old town and has moorish influences. By the way, in the palace gardens several scenes from the TV series „Game of Thrones“ have been shot – don’t miss it ! Yet another highlight, which you should include in your motorcycle trip route.
Way younger is the Plaza de Espana in Sevilla from 1929, another touristic highlight you should visit. This site has also served as a movie set: scenes from „Star Wars“ and „Lawrence of Arabia“ were shot here.
Special insider tip: During the Holy Week (Semana Santa) processions take place all over Andalusia. Relics and statues of saints are carried through the streets by a colorful crowd. If you happen to visit Andalusia in this period, you should not miss this event.
It does not matter which city or village your path will lead to, everywhere is a lot to learn about the local history. Breathtaking landscapes complete your experience while you discover one andalusian hotspot after another. And what would be more fitting to travel with than a BMW bike, which can be rented directly at the DRIVING AREA office, located only 5 min away from the airport?
We wish you a pleasant journey, a safe ride and an enriching experience!
