Routes to go by mountain bike in the province of Salamanca

Salamanca offers the Mountain biker Very diverse scenarios for your routes. From the Castilian plain near the capital to high mountain such as the Sierra de France or Béjar. Likewise, they cannot stop visiting villages as picturesque as the pool or Candelario, localities such as Ciudad Rodrigo or the city of Salamanca itself, with its Plaza Mayor and Cathedral as main claims. We recommend making the routes that we propose in autumn or spring. In addition to the weather is softer and more benevolent, you will enjoy the typical landscape of Saltamantino pastures in all its splendor.

Villagonzalo Channel Route

Circular route around the city of Salamanca, specifically through the southeast zone, touring flat landscapes of the Castilian plateau in the Tormes River Valley. The tour is broken in its first part. But after the hard ascent to the castle of Carpio Bernardo the land softens, coinciding with the descent to the Tormes River and at the beginning of the Villagonzalo Canal. An affordable route in the physical and technical in which we will visit not only the city of Salamanca but also villages such as Calvarrasa de Arriba, Carpio Bernardo or Villagonzalo de Tormes.

Peña de France route

To the south of the province, on the border with Cáceres, there is the town of La Alberca. A picturesque people of medieval origin with a historic center of typical mountain houses declared historical-artistic set in 1940, the first town of Spain that obtained such a distinction. A few kilometers from the town is the Peña de France, a mount of 1,727 meters of altitude that we crowned during this route through the Siermantina Sierra. After the Peña de France, a descent begins on a stony road but not very steep to later link with a path between forests, looking for the pool again. This route will make you discover the landscapes and the mount of the region of the Sierra de France. Recommended to do it in spring or summer.

Route of the Arribes del Duero

In an area further from the provincial capital and not so exploited, the west, on the border with Portugal, is the Natural Park of the Arribes del Duero. In it we can visit the throats of the tributaries of the Duero, such as those of the Águeda River. The route is broken, with constant repeches and small declines, sections in which a stream must be waded and overcome stony paths, both up and down.
