Vias Verdes – Cycling Routes in Andalusia
Vias Verdes (Green Ways) are disused railway lines, which were converted to bike and walking paths. On the routes of the Vias Verdes you drive through the Andalusia countryside with beautiful landscapes on well-marked trails. For the bike trails that we have tested by ourselves, we recommend primarily our trekking bikes or mountain bikes.
The Vias Verdes you can either reach by public transport or you can order a private transport service directly from us. You have two possibilities to explore the Vias Verdes. Either we bring you with our minibus to the beginning of the bike route and pick you up at the end of the trip. So you can explore the Vias Verdes by yourselves. Or, if you prefer to do a guided tour, will one of our guides accompany you and lead you along the disused railway lines.
