  • If you want to be disoriented, offer a ride in a real desert without breaking the Bank by taking the plane to cross the Atlantic, then, go to the Bardenas. To the South of Navarre, the place is magical abosulument. A true desert, true true, with fireplace of fairies, dusty canyons, tabular mountain... We just need the Cheyenne or Clint Eastwood on a binge. The landscapes are stunning; side naturalist, it is spoiled: a stunning and unique flora, a unique bird life. Be careful not to go out the trails to avoid the disturbance of wildlife. A downside: planes at the military base, el Poligono, in the middle of the desert. There are days where it really hit the system. Other than that, the dream, when you love wide open spaces and solitude of course.

  • A good choice with guide and a good all-terrain, good sandwich and not miss the best wine or a cold beer is summer, advisable in this case to make the heat visit early almost to dawn is hard. ,

  • Although is can visit in car, for me it ideal is to do it in bike. Go up to the hills or stroll along the inside of the ravines. A special place. a desert where no one expects to find it. The shooting range which has in its interior can be a problem because that part of the Park will close if there are military maneuvers. If it happens, the tranquillity of the desert is disturbed by the sound of war hunts and bombs that explode.
