How Much Experience Is Needed For Riding In The Landscape

To start driving a quad (four-wheeled off-road motorcycle) you do not need previous experience with this type of vehicle. Just get the B1 driving license. With the same in force, you can take advantage of the orography of the Monegros. This region, located in eastern Aragon, between Zaragoza and Huesca, has more than 1,000 kilometers of roads to travel in off-road vehicles. You can choose between different routes, depending on the degree of difficulty you want to experience.

Some of the most frequented are Torrollones-Fertilidad, Barranco de la Valcuerna or an ornithological route to discover birds. Monegros Aventura offers a wide variety of routes and levels, so you can design a route tailored to any need. On the path of Lower Spain Aragon 4×4 vehicles are also very suitable for this type of terrain. Los Monegros is a region as abrupt and desert as unknown. For something, it is the scenario of Lower Spain Aragon: one of the toughest tests on the world raids calendar.

  Alfajarín is the starting point of a route that leads through the desert through tracks in good condition, in which the whitish plaster of the stones is mixed with the reddish of the ribazos and with the colors of the crop fields in the landscape. The road from Perdiguera to Bujaraloz runs through the Sierra de Alcubierre, full of ravines like El Buccal. From the sanctuary of the Virgen de la Sabina, in very good condition, a track allows the return to the mountain landscape, where La Terraza is located, a 13th-century watchtower.

And Finally…

The final part of the tour leads to the hermitage of San Caprasio and, subsequently, to Perdiguera and its Mudejar church. An ecosystem that is not only desert The fame of desert and arid and unattractive area of Los Monegros collides with a much richer reality, once its tracks and corners are known with some depth. Bird protection areas, for example, allow you to see raptors, such as the caraway, the owl and the golden eagle, or the bustard.

  Another of the inhabitants of the area is the Sabina, a tree rooted since the era of dinosaurs, which acclimatizes to drought conditions and night frosts. The region also offers other active tourism initiatives, such as those proposed by La Gabarda Park and the Tardienta Aerodrome Leisure and Adventure Center apart from stunning landscape. However, it is best to think about where they are going to regain strength with any of the dishes of the region, such as the chains, the Monegrine stew, the Penasco or the white beans with ear and nose. Throughout the area, there are good restaurants.
