Born and raised in Madrid. Clara moved to England in 1991 after having graduated in History of Art at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid. In 1995, with a perfect English accent, she came back to her roots and worked as a guide, leading small groups from the USA on biking and hiking tours all over Spain & Portugal.
Inevitably, after living as a semi nomad for several years, she decided it was time to put her experience to a more organizational role, and for the last 12 years she has been part of our team at Madrid & Beyond.
We, and particularly our clients, are the grateful recipients of Clara's vast knowledge and experience of the Iberian Peninsular. She is undoubtedly one of the very best travel planners in Spain and takes such wonderful care of her clients.
She loves her bike. As well as exploring much of Spain in two wheels, she also goes well beyond the borders. Among her adventures she has cycled across the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean side, has crossed the Alps from Geneva to Menton, cycled all around Slovenia and each year takes on a new route. Recently, she’s pedaled from Budapest to Krakow, Turin to Tuscany, Basil to Rotterdam.
She has also travelled extensively throughout North America, Asia and North Africa.
