On the Road in Rías Baixas: 4 Motorcycle Routes for an Exhilarating Regional Experience

One of the most unique ways to experience Rías Baixas is via motorcycle. Heading out on the open road paves the way for an exhilarating experience. It provides an opportunity to connect with the region’s unforgettable people and places. There are four main driving routes recommended by the representatives of the Rías Baixas tourism organization. They include: the Long Coast Route, which runs from A Guarda to Catoira; the Short Coast Route, from Baiona to Pontevedra; the Inland-Coast Route, from A Cañiza to A Guarda; and the Inland Route, from Silleda to Combarro.

The Long Coast Route is a particularly popular option since it covers the region’s entire coast, providing breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way, riders can stop at several landmark towns including Cambados (considered the “Albariño Capital”); Pontevedra (the capital of the province and one of Galicia’s most well-preserved old towns); and Vigo (Galicia’s largest city that features cultural remains from the II century BC and III AC). Of course, there are also plenty of wineries to visit throughout your trip, get your winery guide here. Just remember to drink and drive responsibly during your journey.
