Other Travels

Spain is More offers a unique experience: the Camino de Santiago on a rental Harley-Davidson or BMW Motorcycle. As you tour around Northern Spain you will experience mountains, fantastic beaches, cliffs, idyllic villages, impressive cities and last but not least, delicious cuisine.

This Camino often winds along small, rural roads making this an ideal, laid-back way to enjoy the Camino close up. Spain is More offers a unique Camino experience on a Harley-Davidson or BMW Motorcycle. There are so highlights that make this trip unique. You can travel whenever you want and you are as free as a bird during the entire trip. Your comfortable and picturesque hotels will be booked in advance. And, after breakfast, you have the whole day ahead of you to enjoy and personally create memories mounted on one of the five styles of motorbikes available.

The tour always starts in León, where you arrive from Madrid on the high-speed train. Here, you won't want to miss visiting one of the most beautiful and largest cathedrals in Spain, as well as a number of impressive monuments that bear witness to the city's more than 2000 years of history.


Note: The trip can be planned according to length, route and desire as long as the trip begins and ends in León. Shorter day trips, more nights, specific places, other itinerary than the intended .... everything is possible. Get more nspiration on this page.


Old Town, León is a splendid example of the genuine Spanish atmosphere that you will experience throughout this trip: lively, cheerful and filled with cosy restaurants, bars and squares where people can sit back and enjoy life. It is exactly what you can expect for the next few days - an opportunity to just enjoy life.

The different stages have been planned for shorter direct routes, as there are still lots of possibilities for scenic landscapes and fantastic experiences every day. However, if you'd like longer daily journeys, it is possible to plan the route according to your preference.

On the road - head west along the most interesting stretches of the famous Camino Francés. You will receive maps, route-suggestions and guide materials before your departure.

You will have time for some very scenic detours, so the length of your journey can be suited excatly to your wishes.

It's an ideal motorbike holiday.

The day ends in the beautiful village of Villafranca del Bierzo, where you have the opportunity to visit one of the local wineries in the emerging wine-growing areas of El Bierzo. Step inside one of the two beautiful churches in the town, or perhaps just enjoy the charming square.

In the morning, right from the beginning, you start climbing up towards the stone village of O Cebreiro, which is a natural place to stop. There is a monastery, trails that lead through the forest and a somewhat hilly and beautiful landscape that provide the setting for the remaining part of the trip to Sarria.

If you want to spend more time on the road, we recommend visiting the town of Lugo, where you will find the best preserved Roman city wall in the world. Here you need to park the motorbike and go for a walk along the wall around the ancient part of town.                      

If it were not for the Camino, this region, famous for its octopus and numerous decorative Camino motifs, would be entirely hidden away from the eyes of tourists. Luckily, the Camino gives travellers the opportunity to experience this enchanting region which is one the most idyllic and authentic place you will ever visit.

You suddenly find yourself in Santiago de Compostela, with its majestic cathedral. You immediately fall in love with the town’s charm: The cosy maze of streets, the well-kept buildings and the international atmosphere that is partly due to the many students and partly to the thousands of pilgrims which each year end their pilgrimage here make up Santiago's unforgettable atmosphere .

Here you have the chance to visit the small town of Muxía, which is situated a little to the north, where you will see the church and can admire the natural landscape.

Day 6.- Day 5: Santiago de Compostela - Llanes (380 km)

The tour starts from Santiago de Compostela and goes north/west along the Camino del Norte, also known as the Coastal Route, as it follows the Spanish North Coast. Various roads lead to Ribadeo, either following the Camino itself or along the beautiful Rias Altas coast.

You can also choose to travel inland along the mountainous Camino Primitivo to Oviedo. Oviedo is an ancient city of kings which continues to be majestic with impressive palaces, squares and lots of charm. 

The day end in Llanes, which is one of the coziest villages on the Spanish North Coast. In the summertime it's a town full of athmosphere with great beaches and restaurants. What else could one wish for?

Some of the most beautiful beaches in Spain are also found on this coast.

Bilbao is in a category all its own. While here you should definitely visit the famous Guggenheim Museum and try tapas in many bars in the Old Town.
