The Bardenas Reales is a arid desert region that was named a Natural Park in 1999 and incorporates 45,000 hectares of landscapes whose vegetation and rock formations are unique in Europe. The most famous landmark is the Castildetierra. It's...more
I hugely enjoyed a ride around Bardenas Reales. What a landscape!! I had no idea a place like this exists in Europe.
It is perfectly OK to drive in a normal car, no 4x4 is needed, if one sticks to the main circular road.
Visited with a group from the Camping & Caravanning Club during a tour of Northern Spain. There are some real ‘foodies’ in the group and everyone without exception said what a great atmosphere and how much they enjoyed the meal.
Would definitely go again.
Do not pass by without visiting Bardenas Reales; this semi-desert landscape is likely to surprise you with its rough beauty!
On the website of the reserve you will find various well signed routes (on foot, by mountain bike or by car).

The landscape is indeed worth the dust on your car at the end of the ride, but observe the speed limit if you want to finish your tour without tire puncture.
Prefer the recommended routes if you are not driving a 4 wheels drive car....More
This was well worth a visit today as the landscape is stunning and there are many opportunities for some amazing photographs. We are a family with teenagers who were amply entertained and interested in a place which has been used as film locations for Star...More
Surrounded by areas with grapes, cereal and, nowadays, even rice fields is the semi-desert 41,000 hectares of Las Bardenas Reales. It gives the sense of visiting Mars millions of years ago when it was becoming the barren ground it is today. The entire zone used...More
This is our earth, and this is erosion. We spent two full days in Bardenas under various weather conditions.. Bright sunshine, overcast, and torrential rainstorms. Under all conditions the park is worth visiting. There is a 34-km paved road that takes you through the best...More
Hard to believe you'll encounter this kind of landscape so near home. We passed through the badlands of Navarra while on bicycle vacation in july and stayed a few days to explore the area. No need to tell it's a rather arid environment especially in...More
Very enjoyable few hours.
Track is passable with care by motorbike. Mixture of loose stone and fine dust. 34km lap around bardena baja, the nicest area according to the lady in the information centre. Lots of scenery.
We drove into the park- the paved entrance is just south of Arguedas, off Calle Real- look for the small brown sign. Otherwise you'll find it very difficult to get into the park by car.
This route takes you to the tourist info office, and...More
