Trip details

We run this trip together with our partner in the Sierra Nevada. The focus of the trip is having small groups and providing quality in every aspect of your trip. The trails were selected during years of exploring the surroundings. mtbAdventures only works together with qualified guides and who know the area very well.

Holiday itinerary – a typical mountain bike day

Depending on the weather, the group and some other factors we decide which trails we will pick for the day. You can expect the following from during a typical day. The day starts with a delicious breakfast served on the terrace at 9 am . After fueling up, you’ll set off on your bikes directly from the farmhouse’s front door at 10 am. Expect some challenging climbs during the morning ride.

Around 11:30 am, you’ll take a refreshing break and recharge with tea, coffee, cold drinks, and snacks. Then, get ready for exhilarating singletrack riding until lunchtime.

Lunch will be a picnic in a scenic and shady spot, where you can enjoy the delicious food and drink provided (see Food & Drinks). After lunch, the fun continues with more amazing riding from 13:30 pm to 15:30 pm, usually culminating in an exciting descent to the valley bottom. From there, you’ll get a lift back to the farmhouse for a refreshing beer, tea, and cake.

In the evening, you can unwind on the terrace while watching the sun set with a drink or two, before indulging in a hearty dinner accompanied by plenty of vino tinto and blanco.

If it’s particularly hot, the schedule may be adjusted so that you start and finish earlier. And don’t worry about climbing during the hottest part of the day; the majority of the ascent will be done during the cooler hours.

Food & Drink

All the meals and drinks you have at the farmhouse are already included in the cost of your trip. However, dinners and drinks outside the farmhouse are not covered but there are plenty of nearby bars and restaurants with reasonable prices to choose from.

For breakfast, you have two options: either dine in the dining room or on the south-facing terrace. You can indulge in a variety of choices such as porridge, toast, cereal, fruit salad, eggs, freshly-squeezed orange juice, fruit, yogurt, cheese, tea, and coffee.

During lunchtime, our driver will set up a picnic table with an array of food such as bread, local cheeses, tortilla, ham, chorizo, salad, hummus, olives, nuts, cold drinks, and tea or coffee. We also make sure to take a break for tea and coffee during the day’s ride. And of course, folding chairs are provided for your comfort.

When you return to the farmhouse, you can opt for tea and freshly-baked cake or a refreshing cold beer, or both.

Our cook will prepare delicious and hearty dinners using fresh, local ingredients for the evenings you eat in. We also cater for special dietary requirements. On other evenings, you’ll get to experience local restaurants for dinner. Please refer to our included / excluded for the number of dinners you will eat in and out.

Included in the cost of your vacation is unlimited beer and wine at the farmhouse. You can also try the locally brewed real ale when it becomes available. The house red wine is a robust Spanish tinto, and the white is typically a Rueda from the north-west of Spain.

The farmhouse – the perfect mountain bike accommodation

Experience simple luxury during your stay at the off-grid farmhouse, situated within the environmentally-protected Parque Natural de Sierra Nevada, at an altitude of 1,650 meters. Enjoy panoramic views of the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada, the Mediterranean, and the Rif Mountains of Morocco from the comfort of your own room. The spacious guest rooms are light-filled and open onto a beautiful cloistered Moorish patio with a central fountain. Each room has its own bathroom and guests can request twin or double beds. The farmhouse is registered with the regional tourist board as a casa rural (country lodge) ensuring high standards of comfort and safety.

Meals are served in the open-plan sitting/dining room or on the terrace during warmer months, while guests can relax in the patio, gardens, or sitting room. For cooler evenings, there’s a powerful wood-burning stove. With abundant Andalusian sunshine and solar panels, electricity and hot water for showering are never in short supply, and a generator and gas boiler are available as backup. The farmhouse also has its own spring, providing an ample water supply. Free WiFi is available for all guests.
