The Real Spain
Discover "The Real Spain" from a KTM enduro dirtbike.
TrailbikeTours started running tours from Andorra in the Pyrenees in 2002, and a few years later we moved to north-east Spain. Every move since then has been to an area where the offroad riding is better than before. Here in Aragon we think we've found the ultimate offroad paradise - and it's not only because of the riding that we say that.
We're based in Valderrobres, a perfectly restored rural town on the edge of Els Ports Natural Park. In the heart of the scenic Matarraña district, and on the eastern side of Aragon, we ride in every direction from base.
Matarraña is an agricultural area producing many types of fruit, particularly olives and almonds, and for what's left of it, some small-scale free-to-roam animal farming. For this, there are dirt trails spidering the region, out into the mountains and the Natural Park in one direction, and into the desert-like Aragonese plains in another.
Matarraña is a comarca (district) in Teruel Region, the least inhabited region of Spain - the official motto for Teruel being simply "Teruel Existe". Although it was well-populated in past times, the move to more intensive farming elsewhere in Spain has dispersed the country population, leaving vast areas of Teruel uninhabited.
However Matarraña, the district in Teruel we're based in, is a living, working and thriving rural environment. Very popular with domestic tourists, but often overlooked by foreign tourists, it's commonly known as "The Tuscany of Spain". The economy revolves around tourism and agriculture - very small-scale agriculture, and still done in the old traditional ways, generally by very old Spanish farmers. This way of life is slowly disappearing from Spain, so to see it in such majestic scenery, from astride a KTM, will leave impressions rarely held by "normal" tourists to Spain.
