You will ride the very best enduro trails of the province combined with gorgeous landscapes, good restaurants and a millenary history spotted everywhere.
We will go ride to our mini-Whistler. This location is a dream for any enduro rider. It is not strange to find an Enduro World Series team preparing the season here. First time we didn't know who worked on the trails but we give thanks to them. This is a magic place, sometimes you won't believe what you are seeing. It reminds the scenery of the "Planet of the Apes" film. The mountain is full of young pine trees and enormous round rocks that sometimes you will ride around and some others you must ride over. PLAY VIDEO.
Ancient vineyard terraces rounded by the past of time will make you wonder "what's doing a pump track in the middle of the forest?". About 21 trails with a name and some others unnamed. Uphills are mild and descents are not steep enough to be difficult but easy is not the word. The word is fun. A good place to start your enduro mtb holidays and setting up your bike and your soul. VIEW IMAGES.
Trails over the sea. You will be smelling the salt and watching one of the best Costa Brava landscapes in a 20km round area with no population. This is the biggest almost virgin coastal area of Catalonia. Most of the trails were built by charcoal manufacturers long time ago and now became a technical single-track with Moab-style slick rock passes starring the routes.
During the rides you will see several ancient monasteries and churches and you could figure that such a remote place was full of history and not so lonely in the past. VIEW IMAGES.
We ride across the virgin landscapes of Cap de Creus Natural Reserve. Coastside charming villages like Port de la Selva and Cadaques, hometown of surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, will open the way to the wilderness of the rock modeled by the wind and the sea in an out-of-the-world panorama that inspired his paintings. That will be rocky, no extremely technical going down but it will be tough going up because of the rough terrain. You cannot forget this day. PLAY VIDEO.
We are at the base of the Pyrennes, slopes are higher and you will see the transition between Mediterranean and Continental forest. We ride across the mountain Massif of Salines touching the French border at the top. This is one of the training playgrounds of mountain bike celebrity Cedric Gracia and Enduro World Series vice-champion Damien Oton. Natural trails, not very rough, combined with challenging rocky sections. Long uphills and long descents and a very good place to recover energies in the nearest town of Macanet. PLAY VIDEO.
We go back to the day one spot, everybody riding here once wants to come back. We could spend the whole week with an enduro bike in this place. We will ride some of the trails that we leave in day one and after that we climb to 1000m to ride the reknowned DH-marathon trail of La Trona del Rei. More than 30 minutes of natural, technical descent to finish the rides of the week with some beers and barbacue. PLAY VIDEO.
