Berchules, Granada, Spain



The Alpujarras are a challenging area for the cyclist.  If you like mountainbiking there are routes for every ability. You can enjoy long climbs over wide gravelroads or if you like to improve your technical skills there are trails that don't seem to end.  From where we are in Bérchules, you can climb off-road to 2.600 meter, where you find cooler air in warm summer days and even to 3.480 meter at the top of Mulhacen. .  In the Alpujarra winter, when the high "pistas" are covered with snow, you can go riding in the lower valleys to find comfortable temperatures.  The picture below was taken between Christmas and new year 2012.

We guide tours, rent mountainbikes and roadbikes.  Inquire for our special packages at
