Cabo de Gata Route

Crossing The Parque Natural del Cabo de Gata, is certainly one of the most special we have done. The environment is not the usual the bikers are used to see, arid landscapes as a result of a past volcanic seaside. Pedaling to visit the different coves will make this route a unique experience. The Cabo de Gata Route starts in the city of Almeria, from the seafront riding a few meters from the beach. Thus, the biggest risk of the route is the time you can spend between coves and creeks The arrival at Cabo de Gata lighthouse is the entrance to the natural park. From that moment magnetism and energy of volcanic rock will combine with the presence of a crystalline and impressive sea a few meters from our bike. We have designed two coastal stages and other interior (which enters even in an old crater) with a total distance of 130 km through which you will know in depth the whole park.

  • Stage 1: Almería – La Isleta, 56 km y 570 m climbing
  • Stage 2: La Isleta- La Isleta, 30 km y 630 m climbing.
  • Stage 3: La Isleta – Las Negras, 44km 1010 m climbing.

In this route we also want to offer you the opportunity to meet another major attraction of the park, its maritime part. You can make any kind of water activity, whether at the sea kayaking, paddle surfing, diving baptism, or courses of kite surfing and windsurfing. They can be made by combining with mountain bike routes in the most appropriate manner. Physical preparation is required to face successfully the finalisation of the entire route.
