Off The Grid: Cabo de Gata

Leave behind paved roads and your daily business and discover Andalusia’s most beautiful off-road trails and tracks.

Experience

Off The Grid: Cabo de Gata

5 days pure adventure riding
We take you to an Andalusian gem, which has been forgotten over the past decades: Cabo de Gata and its mind-blowing off-road trails towards deserted mines. On our way to the East, we hit incredible off-road tracks along the Sierra Nevada in order to reach Guadix, where we will stay in an historic hotel. We take you to Cortijo del Fraile, a well-known and abandoned Cortijo with countless stories. Discover Tabernas, known as the only desert in Europe and an iconic film location for many Western movies and series, such as the Games of Thrones.

This is what is waiting for you

The tour in a nutshell

This special off-road tour is only available twice a year. Why? Because this tour covers everything from sea level to an altitude of 2,160 m – meaning during winter time there is a high probability of snow! The highlights are uncountable: Starting from awesome river beds that challenge our off-road riding skills, beautiful landscapes showing the snow-covered Sierra Nevada mountain ranges, incredible trails through the Desert of Tabernas and of course the amazing beaches of Cabo de Gata.

Limitless Off-Road Riding

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 on your selected off-road tour.

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.
