Create an itinerary including Bardenas Reales
Entering Bardenas Reales, you'll see why it was famously chosen as the backdrop to the Spaghetti Westerns of the 1950s. This national park is unique in Europe for a landscape reminiscent of the American southwest. Drive past stark plateaus, canyons, and cabezos--pointy rock formations rising high above the desert--and relish the feeling of expansiveness unique to these badlands, located just around an hour's drive from the rich greenery of Basque country. Guides are also available if you're traveling sans car. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Valtierra using our trip planner.

  • Stunning place!! We explored the Bardenas on bikes. Recommend to go early to beat the crowds and avoid the afternoon heat.
  • Worth a detour if passing by. Drive 200m past the information centre and park at the viewing platform.
  • Cool to see, specially if you recognise it from game of thrones. We didn't spend too much time here. You can drive quite close towards the peaks.
  • Great views even to take into consideration it is Europe. On much smaller case it could remind you Death Valley or other Nevada plains, but it's definately worth to see even if its up to 100 km detour from your way.
  • Such a picturesque. All the beautiful sights to see are naturally made after wind and water erosion. I advise to use a 4 wheel vehicle. Also it's a great place for bird watching.
