Cycling around Alhama de Granada

To: Alhama de Granada!

Tours starting there: Quiet Paths/ Lakes, Mountains and Sea / Alhama Training /

There are a couple of different ways to get to Alhama which is actually a small town.

You could fly from Madrid to Granada, take a taxi/or local bus into Granada bus station and then get a bus to Alhama (there are 3 a day). We do airport pickups in Granada for 55 Euros (Granada airport to Alhama) is the website for internal flights to Granada.

You can take a bus from Madrid to Granada and then on to Alhama (very long trip but economical and comfortable coaches – about a 7 hour trip though) – see for bus schedules, etc.

“I assume we could take a train from Madrid to Alhama, do you know how much that costs?” Sorry there isn't a train connection. There is a train station in Loja-San Francisco (which is our closest point about 30km away and we do pickups there for 35 Euros). Again, please see the train website, but there is 1 train a day from Madrid to Loja leaving at 17:05, going via Cordoba and Antequera and stopping at Loja at 20:56 (end destination is Granada with arrival at 21:37). The cost per person is 68 Euros and the trip to Loja from Madrid is 3 hours and 51 minutes.

You can also go back to Madrid from Loja (again 1 train a day) leaving at 9:47 and arriving in Madrid at 13:35.

“We fly back from Malaga, how do we get there from Ronda” You have a couple options, the train, bus or hiring a private taxi.

There is a train at 16:55 arriving at Malaga train station at 18:47 (1 hour 52 min – price 14 Euros per person) – see for more information.

The train and bus station is easily accessible and on your last day into Ronda you pass both of them coming into town. The Ronda bus station, is only 4 blocks along the Avenida de Andalucia from the Ronda Train Station. The bus service which operates the main bus routes in and out of Ronda is the Los Amarillos bus company( Los Amarillos means "The Yellow Ones" and this is the colour of the buses in this fleet. Roughly they run quite regularly to Malaga, 08.00, 09.00, 10.00, 13.00, 16.00, 17.00, 18.00, 19.45. but I would always check at the bus station on online before counting on these times. Timetables can change very quickly here!

By taxi, please contact us for prices for this 2 hour ride which we can organize for you.
