What you'll do

We will go in my car to the start of the route in Olvera where we will take our mountain bikes (electric ones also available – supplement 10€). We will be 6 hours on the route which is very gentle and suitable for everyone. We will pedal along the old railway, now a cycle track, as I explain all the secrets of the route. I’ll tell you about its construction, history and surprising engineering as we go through long tunnels, over fantastic viaducts and through restored stations. Flora and fauna will be at the forefront and I’ll take you to see el Chaparro de la Vega (a 400 year old oak tree) which is the destination for a local pilgrimage; we’ll see the fighting bull in its natural meadow habitat; and I’ll introduce you to María del Carmen, an expert ornithologist, who, by using special cameras, will show us one of the largest European colonies of griffon vultures at the Zaframagón outcrop and fascinate us with her expert explanations. Don’t forget your camaras for those lifelong memories! This is an activity which goes beyond a simple excursion to become a complete immersion in rural Andalucia.

I’m a responsible, organised economist who has always been passionate about travel and getting to know new cultures and people and I retrained as a Tour Manager. I have been working for seven years for British and Spanish companies leading tours in Spain of up to 40 people. 4 years ago, together with a colleague, I set up a company which arranges one day theme based excursions around Seville, sharing my knowledge, experience and my passion for Andalucia. One of the most successful has been this Green Way through the Mountains which I would love to share with all of you.

Where you'll be

We will travel in my car for 1 hour to the Green Way through the Mountains. There we will cycle through tunnels, over viaducts, see different restored stations, admire a 400 year old oak tree which is a worship point for the locals in their pilgrimage of Fátima. We will visit the visitor centre for the route where we will see the largest colony of griffon vultures in Europe. Rest areas and water fountains will let us relax and refresh ourselves
