White Village Mini Cycling Tour

4 Days

A 4 night cycle tour (incl first and final nights in Ronda) in Spain, with 3 days of cycling - a perfect taste of this beautiful region.

Your first day's cycling takes you out to the unusual white village of Setenil de las Bodegas for lunch, where the large overhanging limestone cliffs have provided shelter from the elements for many centuries. To this day, "cavehouse" dwellings, built into the rock overhangs, form the basis of many houses, shops and cafes. You wil spend the night in the village.

The next day of your cycle tour takes you up out of Setenil to the Roman hilltop settlement of Acinipo, also known as "old Ronda". The town was built to house retired Roman soldiers and thrived in the first century AD. It is worth taking a walk up the hill to visit the remains of the (partially rebuilt) amphitheatre and to catch the views from the high escarpment across to the valley below.

From Acinipo you descend the hill, passing bodegas, vineyards and wheatfields - the two main crops grown here since Roman times. You then climb again to reach the village of Montejaque, nestled into a nook of the surrounding limestone mountains. On the way you will pass through cork oak forests, where the bark is harvested annually to provide the corks for '000s of bottles of locally and nationally produced wines.

After a night in Montejaque, the final day of your cycling tour takes you down the mountain via the Guadiaro river valley and the Cueva del Gato (Cat Cave). Then it's a final segment back up to Ronda in time for tapas and sightseeing on your final night in town.
