Gastronomic Experience - TONDELUNA -

For the arrival to Logroño we have proposed a "meeting" with the Riojan gastronomy by Luisa Barrachina and the well-known Riojan chef Francis Paniego (3 Michelin stars).
Tondeluna is a modern, informal and fun place that has prepared a FUENTES del VINO menu to introduce cyclists of the route to some of the secrets of modern Riojan cuisine.

Logroño is the "City of tapas". We have left the night free for everyone to visit the different establishments tapas in town on your own. However, if desired, you can choose (at the time of booking) to replace the food (kitchen closing 15h45) for dinner at Tondeluna.

  • Best time to go: The route can be done at any time of the year as long as there is no snow, something unusual in La Rioja.
       Spring and Autumn are usually the most pleasant seasons; in Summer it can be very hot and we must take more precautions.
  • Philosophy: The tour is designed so that the stages can be completed and we still have a large part of the day to enjoy the place where we are.
       However, if you want more hardness, all stages have their PLUS option.
  • Provisioning: La Rioja is not a desert. We will find towns with water and other services without too many difficulties.

We will send you options and alternative routes for these or any other variable you can think of.
