Motorcycle Tours - White Rose Tours 2017
White Rose Tour 2 Extremadura
Mapsman have teamed up with fellow adventurers and motorcycle touring company White Rose Tours to provide a suggestion of additional maps and guides to accompany their tours for 2017.
To be expected from a quality tour operator White Rose Tours do provide detailed turn by turn instructions and GPS maps for the tour but we believe it is always useful to have a map as well.
Our suggestions for this tour are a map bundle of Michelin Maps 572; 575 and 576

A new tour to Extremadura - the land of the Conquistordors
New tour - This is an exploratory tour to Extremadura in Spain. - Customers should be aware that although we have researched the area we have not ridden sections of it. We will, as usual, supply a full tour pack; however you should be a competent navigator and be prepared to use your own initiative. If you think this describes you, then we would love you to join us.
All the accommodation will be to our usual standard, and will be mainly Paradors plus a 3 & 5 star hotel.
To save time, our tour starts with an overnight ferry from Plymouth to Santander. On arrival, we head southwards into the La Rioja region of Spain before turning south-westwards to pass through the Sierra de la Demanda National Park. Passing north of Madrid we cross the Sierra de Guadarrama Mountains to our next overnight stop in Segovia.
Continuing southwards we enter Extremadura for a 3 night stay giving us the opportunity to unpack and explore the area in more detail.
Crossing back into Northern Spain we re-enter the Picos De Europa for a final night’s stay before taking the Brittany ferry from Santander back to Portsmouth.
This is an Escorted Tour which means that although the guide will be with you, you are responsible for doing your own navigation. We provide a Tour Pack which will include a full itinerary, suggested route directions, Gpx waypoints and hotel location. This system suits many people, as it allows them to ride at their own pace and style, either alone or in small groups.
As this is an exploratory tour we would prefer only experienced riders who have ridden on the continent before and are able to ride with a high degree of independence.
