Enduro Mountain Bike in the Pyrenees
Big mountains await at Benasque. Our more demanding physical and technical Mountain bike adventure will take us to ride on lost trails over high alpine hillsides that will make us feel tiny.
Peaks, ridges… everything in Benasque is huge. Let’s enjoy true All Mountain riding unreal trails and enjoying the spirit of the Spanish Pyrenees.
It was until 1916 when the road by Congosto del Ventamillo (a deep canyon) was finished you’d spend a whole day by feet to get out from Benasque, not strange they call it the hidden valley.
In the hearth of the Spanish Pyrenees bordering with France the Benasque valley rises vertical and untamed. Its trails, formerly used to take livestock to pastures, go over 2000mts over the sea level and go down by alpine hillsides with red loam, narrow steep singletracks and deep green woods.

Warm up with a short 3 hour ride around Castejón de Sos and enjoy our tour briefing while you enjoy dinner.
Gear will suffer its toll also. It’s highly reccommendable that in case of bringing your bike you perform a full maintenance, with new brake pads and bring with you some spare parts like a hanger. Also bring protection for your knees and elbows and a good hydration backpack.
We’ll enjoy a couple of fun, varied descends and will finish with a good glass (or two) of cold beer!
