Join us on this two and a half day 4×4 event near Barcelona: you’ll be using our cars, so just fly there, we’ll pick you up and take care of everything.
A trial for real
This is a two and a half day fun event for those who like to feel the rush of adrenaline while sitting behind the wheel of a 4×4 car. Carles Celma, our experienced and professional driving instructor and tour guide, takes you to our closed-off site for half a day of training on Friday afternoon. He will teach you the ropes of how to control a 4×4 car in technical driving conditions. You will feel safe and confident when we go out into the mountains.
You will be driving in the Penedès mountain area along tracks that offer fantastic views, are sometimes easy and sometimes really difficult and technical, like a trial for real. You will be able to exercise all the skills you learned in the morning of the first day.
Perfect outing for a group of friends
The minimum number of participants is four (two cars), the maximum 10 (five cars), making it a perfect outing for a group of friends who like to do something different and exciting. Working together to conquer obstacles, the feeling that you have overcome a challenge, combined with picknick lunches, great food and a drink afterwards combine to create an atmosphere of camaraderie that will stay with you for a long time.
4×4 driving needs to be safe. That’s why we train you first before we go out into the wild. All the time Carles will be there to guarantee a safe adventure for everyone.

The Penedès region
Penedès is located in the south of Catalonia, between the pre-coastal mountain range (Serralada Pre-litoral) and the Mediterranean. It is a wine-producing region, framed by the coastal hills of the Serra del Garraf and the higher inland mountains which skirt the Catalan Central Depression. Long considered one of the country’s best wine-producing regions after the Rioja area, it is also one of the most ancient viticultural areas in Europe. Perhaps best known for its Cava production, a sparkling wine which has had its own Denominació d’Origen since 1991. White grape varieties predominate, although the region also produces some highly regarded, oak-aged reds.
The climate is mild and sunny.
