Northern Spain’s provinces are far from its usual clichés because their roots are more Celtic than Iberian in culture. For sure, the highlight of this trip is the majestic Picos de Europa, the highest Cantabrian mountain chain, this motorcycle tour will also take you to the most beautiful sites and motorcycle roads of these regions too little known: Asturias and its unspoiled nature and wild coasts reminiscent of Brittany, Cantabria and its peaks of the Picos National Park, Burgos and its medieval architecture, Euskadi, Spanish Basque Country, so attached to its culture and its traditions and finally Navarre and its famous Wild West landscapes of the Bardenas Reales

You will fall in love with the diversity and beauty of these regions so appropriate to motorcycle tourism. You will end this motorcycle journey where it started, on the wild coasts of the French Basque Country.
