Experience breathtaking alpine scenery and endless single tracks through the ancient forest on our Berga Mountain Bike holiday in the Spanish Pyrenees.
Nestled in the Spanish Pyrenees you’ll find this hidden mountain bike gem, Berga. Thanks to the heritage of hard work and toil in the mountains, over 100,000km of trails exists shaped by nature on old railway tracks and other transport routes. Add in the easy and convenient access from Barcelona, Berga and its surrounding areas is on the rise to become a mountain bike sanctuary…
While not yet established as a mountain bike destination, the area is already well known among the local riders, for its beautiful alpine terrain and flowy forest trails. This is a destination that is simply too good not to include as one of our adventures which is why we created the Berga Mountain Bike holiday in the Spanish Pyrenees
Berga’s location in the eastern Pyrenees provide a huge variety of trails from breathtaking alpine, rocky south-faces to endless single tracks through the ancient pine forest.
The climate in the Pyrenees and Berga allows us to mountain bike here all year around and is the perfect escape during those cold and rainy autumn weekends.
Itinerary for our Berga Mountain Bike holiday in the Spanish Pyrenees
You will be met at Barcelona airport by a LeRipp representative and driven to your accommodation in the mountains. Upon arrival you will have time to settle in and make sure you have everything for the first day of riding.
We usually invite the guide to join for breakfast to get to know the group and explain the plan for the coming days. Our first day is normally spent close by to test the level of the group and to adjust the itinerary to be best suited for the whole group. After a full day of riding, laughing and sweating, we will head back to the chalet.
Day 2 (or Day 2 & 3 on week-long trips)
Based on the first day we start exploring more of the hundreds of combinations of daily tours on both the spanish and french sides of the border. To ease into it, day 2 includes more shuttling to cover more descents.
Day 3 (or Day 4-6 on week-long trips)
Big mission days. Normally, we will doing an alpine crossing covering a few valleys at least one of the days (weather permitting). This day will involve more pedalling to get access to some of the more remote areas which promise magnificent views and less explored trails.
Towards day 6 we can either go back and re-do some of the favourite trails from the previous days or continue exploring - it is completely up to you!
On our last day there is flexibility, either we will continue to explore the combinations of trails available at your doorstep or we take it easy in the morning, round off the trip and return back to the airport.
