Tour Route

Our route has been designed by tour manager and Guide Jay, who spends the season working in Spain. And has spent many years working and riding with local riders in the Pyrenees Mountains and will be on hand to help with any questions.

Riding conditions:

Riding conditions are normally excellent throughout the Pyrenees with good quality road surfaces and little traffic, which suits novice to experienced riders, many riders even prefer to ride abroad.

This is a 99% sealed roads tour, there might be the odd car park or layby which is unsealed.

We ride many of the famous high mountain passes and would recommend that you have a good head for heights.

Self-guided tour info

We are located in Barcelona – Just 2 minutes walk from a main station near the center. So very easy to get to from the Barcelona Airport El Prat (BCN)

Before the tour, we will send you the link and password, to the Rider Information page. We also send via email the tour satnav GPX files and tour PDF, which contains hotel info, and also information on Riding in Europe and what to bring/pack.

On arriving in Barcelona we recommend the NH Numancia hotel which is a good choice as it’s near the center and easy to get to from the airport plus only a short from our base.
We also recommend the Ibis or the Holiday Inn. Both are located in Molins del Rey, which is outside the city but has a line into the center and not too far from the airport 15 minutes by taxi. Also, there are a few good restaurants/bars which are open until late nearby for something to eat in the old town center.

The hotels in Barcelona are not included before the start of the tour and after the tour finishes. As it depends on when you would like to arrive, the length of stay and your budget plus distance to the center of the city.

Our tour guide, Jay, made our trip memorable. We had a wonderful time. We rode a wide variety of routes with breathtaking scenery, fun and challenging roads. The selection of restaurants for our daily lunch stops was excellent. The food was great and very reasonably priced. Our nightly accommodations were all in great locations and met all of our needs. We stopped at a variety of interesting places during the tour which enhanced our experience and increased our understanding of the region. Jay has done considerable research on the region, its roads and places to visit. We highly recommend this tour!

Overland Motorcycle Tours guided us along the best roads the Pyrenees have to offer. All the hotels were excellent with consideration for secure parking. GPS routes are provided so you can find your own way if you prefer. Lunch stops away from tourist areas and interesting visits along the way enhanced the experience. You do need to be ready for some fairly long days in the saddle but it is well worth the effort. Thanks to Jay and Alan. Recommended.

Fantastic tour organised by Jay. Excellent coordination and planning resulted in a thoroughly enjoyable 8 days riding through the Pyrenees across numerous, beautiful mountain passes and flowing valley roads. All the hotels we stayed in were excellent with secure parking for our bikes.
Two of our group (including myself) opted to go via Brittany Ferries on our own bikes, which worked really well with a relaxing night in a comfotable cabin. Fly & ride also an option.
By far the best and esiest way to enjoy the best roads in the Pyrenees thanks to Overland’s choice of routes, which Jay has gone to great efforts to perfect!

My friend Marc and I just returned from this tour. We went for the self guide option.
Everything is said in the title of the tour and when Jay says ‘mountains all the way’ he isn’t kidding. Every day you are treated to amazing roads, peaks and spectacular views.
If you love riding your machine you will love the switchbacks, gradients, mountain passes and summits.
The selection of hotels was good and we enjoyed a comfortable stay in each location.
Best of all is Jay’s attention to detail. In advance of the trip he prepared bespoke Sat Nav routes for us using the Harley-Davidson online ride planner and these routes worked flawlessly. From point A to point B each day and never missed a beat.
At any point during the trip when we had a question Jay was there on WhatsApp within minutes to provide immediate assistance, it was like the ultimate ‘Phone a friend’ ?.
We both thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would definitely book again with Jay without hesitation.

Tour Leader Jay has clearly invested many hours developing fantastic tour routes and selecting a neat variety of hotels. The small group size and Jay’s logistical planning resulted in efficient travel and enabled everyone to ride at their desired pace. Most importantly, Jay’s positive attitude, helpfulness, and constant smile made for a most pleasant experience.
