DAY 1: Aracena – Riotinto

46 km – 800 meters climbing

Our adventure begins in the town of Aracena; known for its Caves of Wonder, caves of such magic and fascinating beauty that it will plunge you deep into a dream world. The trip continues through luscious green fields dotted with ancient holm and cork oaks that feed the world renowned Iberian pig and give it its singularly magnificent taste.
Next we journey to the mining region which will surprise you with its Martian landscapes and vast expanses. You will have the chance to look into the center of the Earth at an open pit at the disconcertingly enormous Rio Tinto mine, a copper mine once worked by British miners in the early 20th Century.

DAY 2: Riotinto – Linares

47 km – 960 meters climbing

This is much harder than the previous day as we have to climb back up the mountain that we came down yesterday.
After peeking into the center of the Earth in the mine that became the largest open-cast mine in the world, we will cycle on the former railroad used to transport the ore through these parts in times of yore. We will descend (on foot and with difficulty) a ramp where long ago a train ran, crossing ghostly abandoned mines.

DAY 3: Linares – Santa Ana la Real

30 km – 950 meters climbing

Finishing the greenway come the first ascents, which will test our endurance. A long time before reaching Jabugo we will start to feel the coolness of the Sierra the shade of the oak trees. The narrow cobbled streets will also offer us rest as they are the main attractions between towns.

DAY 4: Santa Ana la Real – Cortegana

45 km – 1100 meters climbing

We will reach the top of the mountain with slopes that make us sweat but at all times we will enjoy the rich environment. Not only in Jabugo we can make a break for “tapas” since any village we passed provides a rich cuisine. It is an “up and down” day riding trails and roads.
The final part of the route goes into forests of ancient ferns that we will pedal, with tired legs crossing dizzying paths. The chestnut tree becames protagonist, green in summer and bare during the winter. It reminds us the diversity of the Sierra de Huelva. We will arrive at the starting point having traveled through some of the best Martian and serrano landscapes, quite an experience!
