Two days on tough tracks

Think of this combined with terrific food and great company, and you have a perfect, highly charged experience.
Join us on this two-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-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. 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 in the afternoon and the next day.
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 group outing
The minimum number of participants is four (two cars), the maximum 10 (five cars), making it a perfect group outing for people 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.

The vehicles we provide are Nissan Patrols modified to perfection. The cars have been raised and are equipped with a very sort short range low gear box to make maximum use of the torque of the engine. These are very reliable cars, perfectly suitable for the kind of tracks we drive on these tours.
Catalonia is a gastronomical heaven. Its climate and the care people put in preparing the food provide an intense taste to fish, meat, vegetables and fruits. In recent years traditional cooking has been infused with innovative combinations of flavours and sophisticated recipes, further improving the gastronomic experience.
You will enjoy these tastes with a barbecue in the mountains, good tapas in Barcelona and excellent cooking in the restaurants we visit.

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.
