Certified BMW Motorrad IIA Instructors

All the instructors at the Enduropark Andalusia are certified BMW Motorrad IIA Instructors. Many of them are former GS Trophy Marshals and / or have ridden through various parts of the world. Their experience makes them great instructors with a keen eye on off-road riding techniques as well as tips and tricks that only extensive experience in off-road riding can provide.

Limitless off-road Riding in Andalusia

Unlike other European countries, Southern Spain still has a lot of off-road trails and tracks to offer and gives you the possibility of exploring the area on a GS! After the first training day at the Enduropark, our instructors take you for an off-road ride with some section training.

Ride during European wintertime in Andalusia!

With 300 days of sunshine per year, Andalusia’s prime advantage is its climate, offering ideal weather conditions for off-road riding all year round, especially during the European winter season. In Andalusia we are riding from October to May!

Day 1

In our Train & Ride course we will start the first day with a training day in our Enduropark. The day starts with slow-speed handling training at our Enduropark. You will practice the basics of enduro riding through slaloms, u-turns and braking.

Day 2

The second day consists of a riding day with section training. We ride an off-road loop through the Sierra de las Nieves. Our instructors will add single trails, easy river crossings and small up- and downhills putting your learnt skills into practice and preparing you for your next off-road ride. Some challenges like small rivers and single trails will be new and always optional on this day.

Day 3 (optional)

After your 2 days training program you can add another riding day to enjoy the Andalusian backcountry and put your learnt skills into practice. Your instructors already know the skills of the group and will select the routes accordingly. It is a great fun to finish off a fantastic off-road riding weekend.
