You’ve booked your dirt biking holiday. You have the tickets and the basic information, but you’re not quite sure what the trip has in store for you. Well, our dirt biking tour is an adrenaline-fuelled ride through the Andalucian countryside, teaming you up with our expert riders to provide the best experience possible. Why is it the best experience possible? Because Southern Spain is the ideal place to try your hand at one of the wildest extreme sports.
Our base is located near the coastal town of Nerja, Andalucia. Sitting between the Alboran Sea and the Sierra Almijara Mountains, Nerja provides the perfect terrain for a full on dirt bike assault.
Your first day on the bikes will be split between training and riding. If your group is already experienced in motorcycling then there will be more emphasis on the second part. We want everyone on our tours to feel comfortable riding with us, so we won’t set off until we are sure you that are ready.
Once you’re settled, the day really begins. We try and get in 4 hours of riding before lunch, in order to make the most of your time with us. Andalucia is a vast, capricious region of Southern Spain, so you can expect a series of challenging environments — from old river beds to mountain trails. After lunch there is the chance to cover even more ground, with the average tour covering around 100 km of this panoramic wilderness.
Day two is all about the ride. We will aim to travel around 120 km, through forest, rocks and rivers to give you the greatest possible tour of Andalucia. Although these areas are testing, they are certainly defeatable and Redtread will offer you all the guidance you need.
For those of you who have never visited the South of Spain before this is a fantastic chance to really take in the beauty of Iberia.
Once you’re back at the ranch, there is also an opportunity to check out more Spanish culture. Nerja is only a short distance from base camp, so authentic Spanish cuisine and nightlife is always just around the corner.
Day three is the day we reach the peak of our journey. The Sierra Almijara mountains are some of the most breathtaking geographical landmarks in the country and we attempt to ride to over 6000 ft above the Andalucian landscape. This series of mountain trails offers some of the best riding on the continent and some of the best views in the world.
For a short motorcycle tour this is unfortunately where the fun ends, but we also offer longer full week tours with a further two days of riding! For more information about any of our tours check out our website and get in contact with us to book your trip of a lifetime.
