Destination Sport Experiences are your Official Tour Operator for the 2022 Vuelta a Espana which takes place from Friday August 19th until Sunday September 11th.

La Vuelta a Espana will start in the Netherlands in 2022. On Friday the 19th of August, Saturday the 20th and Sunday 21st, the last Grand Tour of the year will have stages in Utrecht, Den Bosch and Breda. Utrecht is also known as little Amsterdam with its canals and this great city will become the first foreign city to have hosted all 3 Grand Tours. The Giro came here in 2010, the Tour de France in 2015 and now the Vuelta in 2022.

On Friday 19th August the 2022 Vuelta a España opens with a team time trial of 23.7 kilometres and a start and finish at the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht. Stage 2 starts in Den Bosch but the stage finished in Utrecht on a city circuit before finishing in Utrecht's Science Park. Stage 3 starts and finished in Breda which is within easy reach by train from Utrecht.

  • Start Village in Utrecht, Den Bosch ('s Hertogenbosch) and Breda
  • A day on the course in an official Vuelta Car on all 3 stages
  • Finish Hospitality in Utrecht for stages 1 and 2 and in Breda

Our city centre Utrecht hotel is available to book with your tickets and it is within walking distance or a short journey on public transport away from stages 1 and 2. Stage 3 starts and finishes in Breda, an easy train journey away from Utrecht.
