Sierra Morena

Welcome to southern Spain and the Andalusian mountains! The Sierra Morena is the ideal place for winter riding for some much needed sunshine. Come and explore these beautiful and unspoilt mountains with us, with gravel trails as far as the eye can see. Sunshine, tapas, sangria and gravel, what more do you need?!


Welcome to Andalusia and the Sierra Morena, a well kept secret only a stone’s throw from Seville. Tourists here are few and far between, you’ll only find locals out on an adventure.

We’ve got 3 and 5 days trips to help you make the most of the precious winter sunshine between October and March each year.

Immerse yourself in nature in this incredible area - on the plains and prairies tucked between peaks (known locally as Dehesa) and the typical “pueblos blancos,” white painted hamlets perched on the hillside.

The wide smooth gravel trails make for the ideal intro to gravel riding, and the extensive network is the perfect playground for those with a bit more experience. Whatever your level, a real sense of freedom is all but guaranteed with kms and kms of paths to explore without a car in sight!

Here are several reasons why you should come ride with us:

  • Everything is included, within a small group of 8 to 10 riders max.

  • You have a local guide for the entire trip.

  • Quality bikes to hire, either standard or electric.

  • Experience Andalusia like never before with yoga, wellbeing and local wine/food tastings.

How can you resist the Andalusian gravel in the middle of winter?!

Ride through the heart of the Sierra Morena Natural Park on our five day adventure from Seville. Discover the best of Andalusia by bike and make the most of the winter sunshine.

I will be travelling again with GravelUp and highly recommend the experience. The program was a good balance of scripted and flexible, not too full, but with beautiful offerings.

This GravelUp trip was awesome...! An incredible experience of riding under the blue sky and close to the mediterranean sea with passionate people! Clearly the perfect break to disconnect and recharge the batteries!

We had a lovely time with the Gavel Up team. Really nice people, fun, strong....!!!! The riding was great, bikes too, food and wine was always top. Meeting like minded bike people was also superb and everyone thoroughly enjoyed, laughed, complained at the hills and always smiling each day. Highly recommended.

The Sierra Morena, a welcome dose of midwinter sunshine

If, like us, you have a real need to prolong your short-sleeve riding season or to get some welcome vitamin D during winter, then you’ll be pleased to know that the GravelUp team invites you on a special trip to the winter sunshine. We’ll be heading to southern Spain and the Sierra Morena Natural Park, just to the north of Andalusia. Far from the resorts of the coastline and the crowds you’ll find yourself in the heart of a unique and protected landscape, riding top notch gravel.
