Forget overpriced rental cars. Forget stuffy buses. Forget crowded trains. Allow us to introduce you to a 125cc Vespa, the BEST way to travel across rural Spain and all its sunbaked beauty. Picture this: you’re zooming along golden country lanes on your retro Vespa, revving full throttle forwards, dust in your wake. Canyons laced with fields of sunflowers to your left and hazy mountains to your right. But hold up, there’s a medieval village up on that hill, a tapas bar and oh yes, a jug of sangria with your name on it. If that sounds truly perfecto, we’ve got just the ticket – a four-day Spanish escapade complete with training, delicious pitstops and luxury accommodation (plus a newfound Vespa obsession…) *Click to see what The Guardian & Marie Claire had to say about this one*

Itinerary

Day 1: Your first flavour of vespa life

Today you’ll touch down in Madrid, where you’ll meet your guide and fellow Flashpackers before hopping into a private car for the hour and a half journey to Tamajón. Here, you’ll enjoy your first taste of Guadalajaran cuisine in a local restaurant, before meeting your new retro companion: a 125cc automatic Vespa. Your bilingual tutor will go through a safety briefing and teach you how to drive a Vespa, so you’ll soon be zipping down quiet country roads on your cult classic bike. Now you’ve got the Vespa vibes in hand, it’s time to refuel over dinner with a smooth glass of Rioja, before settling into your authentic abode for the night.

Day 2: Scenery fresh from a Spanish postcard

You’ll be feeling like a Vespa pro by now so today heralds a 115km trip with spectacular scenery. With the help of your speedy Vespa, you’ll be slaloming through thick beech forests, past rivers and jagged peaks as we work our way towards the medieval town of Riaza. We’ll then rev west in search of Castilla’s sunflower-strewn plains and wind our way through the typical ‘pueblos rojos’ (red villages) enroute to Sepúlveda. This charming hilltop town is bursting with golden fields and striking canyons, and its medieval core features Romanesque architecture and cobbled streets. You’ve earned a break, so we’re pitching up at Sepúlveda for the night and spoiling you with another traditional Spanish dinner, followed by a night at one of our all time favourite hotels.

Day 3: Rev along the un-beaten track

Rise and shine, it’s your last full day on the road and it’s going to be a 110km showstopper. Fuel up on breakfast – we’re revving off in search of a special Spanish secret, the Duratón Canyon Nature Reserve. This staggeringly beautiful park is well off the beaten track, complete with emerald forests and a glittering river that snakes through sheer cliffs and castles. A quick pitstop sees us investigate the ruins of an ancient monastery, the Ermita de San Frutos, which is characterised by griffon carvings with huge 2m wingspans. From up here, you’ll find yourself in one picturesque panorama of the canyon. Come afternoon, we’ll arrive at Pedraza, a charming walled medieval town. It’s then time to spruce up your helmet hair with a decadent dinner with your Pedraza pals.

Important notes

Fly into and out of Madrid International Airport (Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport)

You do not need any previous Vespa experience to zoom off on this weekend adventure. However, you do need to have held a driving license for 3 years and must be able to ride a normal bicycle! We have also included your Vespa insurance in the cost of your trip so there are no sneaky hidden costs when you arrive! Give us a ring or email if you have any questions.

If you are flying in for our Spain Vespa adventure, please make sure you are ready to be picked up at Madrid airport by 12pm on Day 1. On Day 4 you will be dropped off at Madrid airport at around 4pm so it is best to book a flight that leaves around 2 -3 hours later, or you can extend your stay and head to the beautiful capital for some more tapas.

Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change. These changes can happen with little notice due to availability, poor weather, seasonal changes, or other circumstances beyond our control. From time to time we may also make changes to your itinerary to try out new ideas and keep things fresh.
