Today’s journey left the beautiful town of Luchon in France and went through the Val D’Aran to Llavorsi, Catalunya, Spain.
A picture is worth a thousand words…
The open gravel track at the ski resort of Baqueira Beret narrowed through pine forests.
After a day of breathtaking scenery and a siesta by the babbling River Noguera Pallaresa, we bimbled down the valley and set up camp for the night at Camping Riberies, Llavorsi.
This is an ideal location for those with an adventurous spirit who want to explore the additional activities in the area e.g. white water rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, horse riding and hiking trails.
For your information, our next 4×4 tour in this region starts on Saturday 4th August 2018.
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.

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.

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.
