Las Hurdes two-day off-road trip along this spectacular Spanish region.

After a couple of trials, finally came the awaited weekend. We had a couple of days and about 250 km of forest roads and firebreaks throughout the Spanish region of Las Hurdes.

Late on Friday, was a mystery if weather would allow us to enjoy the route a hundred percent. The scenery was an importan part of the ride. We needed good weather.







The chosen place as a base camp was finally Las Mestas (Careces). Fortunately, over breakfast we could see the sun shining.



Typical pic: Meander Melero.



First ramps to be warming up.





Sometimes tracks are not in good condition or have a excessively high slope.









Here is a 350 with all the KTM power parts.



Not for fat bikes.







My Tenere is missing an anchor and another gear ... reverse!



This was really steep!!! With no other choice I had made the effort to climb to the top, but there were too many ways to go...



The Sierra of Bejar at the background.



This is what I meant about of the options. Two tracks and a firebreak to get around this mountain.





Stop and beer before we start looking for somewhere to eat.





After a hard climb, tired and hungry, we found a nice surprise: the guys and girls of the 4WD.
They do know how to do it and they kindly invite us to have lunch. THANK YOU ALL!!!





Again the Sierra OF Bejar at the background. An endless track over a firebrake was waiting for us.



Not much snow. The highest point was about 1400m.









The UTV was not far behind.



Another KTM Team member, still running-in the engine.
The first day ends.

We´ll be back. Sure that next time will not repeat any track.
I hope you enjoy.
