Hiking and Cycling around Sevilla
The many mountainous regions within Andalucia plus the fact that it is home to more than eighty protected areas make hiking a popular activity in the province. The number of small roads, bike routes and forest trails that link villages also make it the ideal place for a bike ride.
There are a number of different routes in the province of Sevilla. You can ask for maps and guides with suggestions, tips and descriptions in the Diputación de Sevilla (www.dipusevilla.es). In particular ask for the guide BTT (mountain biking). Similar information is also available for other Andalucian provinces.
Cazalla de la Sierra:
We suggest going to the Sierra Norte, which is located approximately 90 kilometers north of Sevilla, by train or car (A-432 and 421). The route starts in the center of Cazalla leaving the Plaza de la Feria in the direction towards Alanis. The first seven kilometers are rapid and downhill. When you get to the bottom, cross the Via Verde and head into the countryside. You’ll see a lot of nature, including several different species of animals, trees and medicinal plants such as rosemary and wild mint. We strongly recommend making a small detour for lunch in the village of Constantine, well known for its architecture. The last part of the route is a tough climb of three or four kilometers, made more difficult by loose stones, but it is worth it due to the sights along the way. Some 70 kilometers southeast of Sevilla is Moron de la Frontera. Leaving this village is a 38 kilometer route that requires a great level of physical strength. There are a lot of mines and quarries along the trip mixed in with the beautiful landscape. Aznalcóllar is about 40 kilometers to the northwest of Seville and is a route that takes travelers through the woodland. It is about 50 kilometers long and requires a medium level of fitness. For other routes, check out San Nicolas del Puerto and Las Navas de la Concepción.
We hope you have a great time in Sevilla!
