I hugely enjoyed a ride around Bardenas Reales. What a landscape!! I had no idea a place like this exists in Europe. It is perfectly OK to drive in a normal car, no 4x4 is needed, if one sticks to the main circular road. The...More

Visited with a group from the Camping & Caravanning Club during a tour of Northern Spain. There are some real ‘foodies’ in the group and everyone without exception said what a great atmosphere and how much they enjoyed the meal. Would definitely go again.

Do not pass by without visiting Bardenas Reales; this semi-desert landscape is likely to surprise you with its rough beauty! On the website of the reserve you will find various well signed routes (on foot, by mountain bike or by car). We choose to drive...More

Surrounded by areas with grapes, cereal and, nowadays, even rice fields is the semi-desert 41,000 hectares of Las Bardenas Reales. It gives the sense of visiting Mars millions of years ago when it was becoming the barren ground it is today. The entire zone used...More

This is our earth, and this is erosion. We spent two full days in Bardenas under various weather conditions.. Bright sunshine, overcast, and torrential rainstorms. Under all conditions the park is worth visiting. There is a 34-km paved road that takes you through the best...More

Very enjoyable few hours. Track is passable with care by motorbike. Mixture of loose stone and fine dust. 34km lap around bardena baja, the nicest area according to the lady in the information centre. Lots of scenery.
