Crossing the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata in Alemría, 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 volcanics easide.
Pedaling the 130 km you will visit the different coves and will make this route a unique experience.
The trip begins in the city of Almeria, leaving by its promenade, pedaling just a few meters from the beach, makes the greatest risk of the route, is the time you can spend between cove and cove. The arrival at the lighthouse of Cabo de Gata, is the entrance to the natural park, from that moment, the magnetism and energy of the volcanic rock will be combined, with the presence of a crystalline and impressive sea few meters from our path.
We have designed two coastal stages and an interior (which goes into an old crater) with a total distance of 125km through which you will get to know the entire natural park in depth.
