Fez to Cordoba - or join either stage

Explore the history of the Moors as we cycle first in Morocco from Fez to Tangiers. We then cross the Mediterranean to the Iberian peninsular and ride from Silves (Portugal) to the old capital of Al- Andalus - Cordoba (Spain) on a tour that provides a wonderful insight into the legacy left by 700 years of Muslim rule.

Our Conquest of the Moors Tour is split into two stages. The first stage is in Morocco and gives us chance to explore one of the ‘countries’ from where the Moors originated. This National Geographic 2-minute read gives a succinct take on what that area was, before the creation of the modern-day state system. Our ride in Morocco starts in the remarkable Fez medina and takes us north to the enchanting port city of Tangiers.

At the end of our Moroccan stage, we then head across the Mediterranean to Iberia and cycle through Al-Andalus from Silves (Portugal) to Cordoba (Spain). The Moorish occupation of the Iberian peninsula began in the year 707 and lasted over 700 years and has left an indelible mark. Our 15 day journey gives us a chance to explore this remarkable period of European history with the Islamic influence still very much apparent across southern Portugal and Spain.
