The Ténéré Gorafe Desert Tour is  a mix of road and off-road the amount of off-road and on-road will depend on many factors, these predominately being the riders experience levels and the weather. You need to be over 25 to participate on these tours with a Full category ‘A’ licence and have off-road or adventure bike experience..

We can arrange airport transfers or you can hire a car to get you to the Redtread Country House from Malaga Airport. Whichever way you choose, it takes approximately 50 minutes to get to us here in Nerja.

Upon arrival, we will show you around the property and its facilities, you may want to detour into our bar for complimentary sandwiches; we will then get you kitted out in protective gear and show you to your room and leave you to settle in. Depending on your arrival time we will get you kitted out in your riding gear to help speed the morning up.

The whole evening is yours to enjoy.


Day 1 

In the morning, breakfast is served at 8.30am. We will go through the safety briefing, get you fully kitted out in your protective riding gear (if not done the day before) and also talk you through the “corner man system” used here at Redtread. This will help you to fully understand the benefits of using this technique so you will feel more comfortable riding out with us. All your overnight bags will be loaded in to the support vehicle so there is no need for you to carry anything in addition to your normal day bag.

At approximately 10am we will head off for the day heading over through many picturesque villages and over mountain tops to the delightful village of Trevélez – home of the famous Jamon de Trevélez or Trevélez ham. Where at approximately 1 pm we will stop for lunch, this is included in the cost of your riding, we will eat in a typically Spanish Restaurant and enjoy a laid back lunch of approximately 1hr whilst chatting about the mornings riding.

In the afternoon we tackle some technical sections before making our way to the next hotel

We will get to the hotel in La Calahorra at around 5pm so you have time to relax, enjoy a beer, and take a swim before dinner.

Day 2

For your second day, breakfast will be served at 8.30am and we will be away from the hotel straight onto the roads and trails for 10am after a hearty breakfast.

Today is the longest and arguably most spectacular day, we head up to the Gorafe desert, and los Colorados, before stopping for lunch.

The afternoon has some amazing riding, riding down the amazing switchbacks of velifique. Then over the tablazos desert, and Cabo del gato we head to our hotel. Where you have time to relax and to enjoy a beer, take a swim, and chill out before dinnertime.

During the day we will stop at intervals so you can take drinks onboard and we take photos throughout the day, we will also check you’re ok!

Day 3
Breakfast is at 8.30am, we will leave the hotel at 10.00am again, heading back through the mountains, with up hills and descents in deep shale and hard packed rock you come to the probably the best view in the world. We then head down in the direction of the coast, stopping for lunch and fuel in a typical Andaluz white pueblo.

After lunch we start our return back to Nerja

Normally we will be back at base for around 5.30pm so you have time to relax and top up with a complimentary piece of homemade cake, enjoy another beer, take a swim and chill out.

Day 4

Breakfast on day 4 is from 8.30am or earlier if you required. You’re free to take it easy before heading back to Malaga Airport or maybe do a little sight seeing if you have an evening flight. We don’t put a check out time on our rooms so you’re free to keep the room as long as you like*.

*unless we need the room for the next tour then the checkout will be earlier for cleaning, however you can keep your luggage at the base and use all the other facilities
