Mountain bike holidays in Spain The Sierra de Castril

A Mountain bike holiday in the the Sierra de Castril can be varied and challenging. There are easy rides like the circuit of the Valley de Castril and many harder outings which tackle the mountain passes and summits on super single track. Also further afield (within half an hours drive) there are many more excellent routes to be enjoyed. Check out our Photo Gallery.

The Sierra de Castril and the surrounding area provide excellent mountain biking. You can tackle the challenging hills, exhilarating descents, or just take it easy on the flat Altiplano. Click here for a map of where we are
