We start our route in Sebulcor, a small town that allows the most direct access to the Natural Park of “Las Hoces del Río Duratón”. Riding between pine groves, forests of shore, sabinas and junipers, we traverse the Park and enjoy a precipitous view of the meandering S bends of the Duratón river. We ride in the habitat of hundreds of leonados vultures and some Egyptian vultures, kites, eagles, sparrow hawks, and if we are really fortunate we will see the only pair of Real Eagles that nest in the park. Otters, genets and other species are prevalent. Upon arriving in the small town of San Miguel de Bernuy we stop for a wonderful lunch in a restaurant. After our siesta we head down the river Duratón to Fuentidueña and the end of our first day. Dinner and lodging in La Cerca Blanca or Posada del Duratón or similar.
Riding along the Duratón river we find the point where it joins the Duero River, we head towards Peñafiel with its majestic Castle (Tenth century and reconstructed in the fourteenth century and the National Historical Monument) and the Provincial Wine museum both of which we will have the opportunity to visit. We stop for a picnic in Peñafiel. Dinner and lodging is in the hotel Posada Real Castillo de Curiel or similar.
