Our 4×4 Adventure in the Sierra de Guara, Aragon.

Our American clients, Nathan and Susannah, were eager to make tracks from Camping Castillo de Loarre to explore the Aragon region of Spain, as it was their last day off road before heading back to Paris.

The newly built tunnels and Autovia took us north from Huesca towards Sabiñánigo to a height of 4379 feet, giving us spectacular views of the Pyrenees mountain peaks. We headed east towards the remote village of Laguarta, in the heart of the Sierra y Cañones de Guara Natural Park.

Imposing rock bordered the narrow, winding road which climbed through varying terrain and followed the path of the Rio Guarga.

We resisted the guidance of a local cow, who was keen to encourage the use of local facilities…

… but our next helpful guide wasn’t kidding around when directing us off the beaten track!

A dusty forest track, river fording and a long rock crawl climb added excitement to the journey. The tall pine trees provided some cover from the scorching sun.

We passed the ruins of the abandoned village of Torrolluela del Obico.

After a picnic near Alquézar with views over the canyon we moved on to our final few trails. Once again, climbing steep rocky tracks with olive trees alongside.

The Ermita (chapel) de San Benito provided a high point with stunning views over the striking blue waters of the lakes in the valley below.

A steep descent to the base of the valley proved challenging with many sharp bends and a loose surface.

It was time to bid farewell to Nathan and Susannah, great travelling companions who take away new experiences and memories from their off road adventure.

Hasta la vista.

The Pyrenees 4×4 Adventure tour begins

36 hours at sea on Brittany Ferries Cap Finistere with fellow adventurers on the way to Bilbao.

Enjoyed a gourmet meal while being entertained by dolphins leaping alongside our ship.

An early arrival in Bilbao and being one of the first off the ferry meant a quick departure from this industrial port town. Within an hour we turn off the Autovia and head east into the foothills of the Pyrenees.

The winding roads and crystal clear rivers guided us on our adventure through the breathtaking mountains which were shrouded in low cloud. As the roads narrowed, the village of Erratzu displayed the stunning alpine style scenery and traditional Basque homes.

The hairpin bends climbed to the Col d’Ispeguy at 672 metres and the border between Spain and France. What an ideal vista to admire over a spot of lunch! Can you spot our sticker?

The long steep descent took us into the beautiful village of St Étienne-de-Baïgorry.

…and on to our first campsite in St Jean Pied de Port. Camping municipal Plaza Berri perfectly located within a 5 minute walk of this medieval town and citadel in the middle of the Basque Country.

St Jean Pied de Port is a popular resting place for pilgrims from the north following the Camino de Santiago de Compostella.

A walk around the walled town with its cobbled streets and a climb to the citadel viewing points revealed a wonderful panoramic view of the valley and surrounding mountains.

Plenty of places to stop off for delicious crepes and strong local cider!

Bonne santé

Did you miss our Wild Wales 4×4 Explorer weekend June 2018?

So, we had a great group of clients join us for the weekend. We got to drive some new routes for many and some of the old favourites that Wales has to offer : Strata Florida, Lower Claerwen, Rhayader golf links (anyone know why it’s called that?!) and Soar y Mynydd to name a few.

Of course, the mighty Toyota Hilux led the group through fantastic scenery and challenging routes.

Our group consisted of a Land Rover defender 90, defender 110, Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon, Mitsubishi Shogun and the Discovery 3 (with all the kit!)

We love all of our tours across Europe, but Wales still has something special to offer. Ideal for novices and more experienced drivers alike.

If you want any details or would like to book on our next tour then contact;

or email adam@offroadadventuretravel.com

Don’t forget we’ve got upcoming tours in the Pyrenees, Galicia and a great autumn/winter schedule in Wales, including a New Year’s Eve full package!

Heading home after the Adventure Overland Spring Show

Really enjoyed the show with our friends @allterrainservices

Interesting people, a varied selection of vehicles (although I didn’t get the time to look around properly!) and a great venue.

Looking forward to the autumn show! And all of our tours and treks in between.
