1 hour tour takes you on a circular route with a view of the lake in the distance.
2 hour tours are the most popular as this tour takes you to the lakes edge and allows time for a swim, (Most of the year)
3 hour tours take you to different view points taking in the stunning views, to the lake and a swim if wanted (at the right time of the year.)
The tours that we operate are not about speed (by law we cannot exceed 20kmph) , its about taking in the beauty of the surrounding areas where you will discover real Spanish villages (Winter tours), plunging valleys and so much unspoilt terrain.
We never ask you to drive faster than you are happy to drive, fun is our intention, experience the adventure at your pace, the sheer enjoyment and the beauty of the great outdoors.
If you think that you are going on a quad bike tour and are going to be recklessly riding our quads at breakneck speed on a nature reserve please do not book as you will be disappointed.
If for any reason we do not have enough quads on the day (I.E. because of breakdown or maintenence etc) we offer buggies at not extra cost as an alternative, if you decide against buggies and do not take the tour we refund all monies paid)
IF you have an afternoon tour, we ask you to arrive for 1pm for lunch, we then start the tour after lunch at around 3pm.

We offer gentle guided quad bike tours on a Murcia regional nature reserve/park "The Sierra Espuna" and THE BADLANDS (Barrancos de Gebas) a stunning Badlands area with mountainous tracks that are wide and easy to manouver, this is a fabulous activity for beginners and experienced "Quaders" of all ages (although legal requirements do exist for the young unless you opt for a totally off road tour and then it is up to the guides discretion, its not so much the age as the size and strength of the person riding the quad)
Our unique tours take you on tracks and trails (and quiet roads) that would be difficult to walk or drive by car so gives you the opportunity to see parts of the Espuña that you would not normally see, through forests, along canals and with stunning views of a blue lagoon lake which will leave your jaw on the floor!
No previous experience is necessary as all of our quads are very easy to handle as they are all automatic and "simple"...We will provide you with full guidance and tuition by experienced guides.
All tours are gentle affairs.
More like a nature ramble on wheels.
By law we cannot go at speeds in excess of 20km per hour.
This is LAW if you do not accept this then please do not book the tour.
ABSOLUTELY NO ALCOHOL TO BE CONSUMED PRIOR TO THE TOUR!
All guides have a huge amount of Patience and are always happy to give extra tuition where needed for the nervous ones in the group.
We try not to mix groups but sometimes it may be necessary I.E.... 2 small groups but we would rather all members of the group know each other, this is not always possible though during high season.
OBVIOUSLY there is a weight restriction on all quads, we cannot put 2
very large people on one quad. If you have booked 1 quad and are obviously too large then we would ask you to have a quad bike each (the extra quad will have to be paid for).
We have a zero tolerance policy for anyone who we consider is putting their own life in danger, other peoples lives in danger or is abusing the equipment IN ANY WAY.
All damage has to be paid for NO EXCEPTIONS.
We do not allow any snaking, broadsiding around corners or acting in an inconsiderate or dangerous manner, our guides have seen all types of scams and idiots, please do not add more to the list!

All of the Espuña Adventure tours are fully guided, this gives the rider an opportunity to see parts of the nature park not normally seen, places of interest etc, there are many chances for photos e.t.c. on every tour.
Please be aware again that these are tours and not a race around a nature park, we respect the area and we expect you to respect the area.
We also arrange just off-road tours on the Barrancos de Gebas which gives us stunning views of a blue lake that you have probably never witnessed anything similar before, bring your costumes as we may have time for a dip!!, (2 hours or more) the tour is all off road so licenses are not necessary if the younger riders want a go, it depends on the guide on the day as to whether a young rider is capable of riding a quad on his/her own, taking into account the size and maturity of the rider.
Minimum number for any tour is 2
A one hour tour takes you to the Barrancos de Gebas with a view of the badlands (Lunar landscape) and views of the beautiful lake.
A 2 hour tour takes you through the badlands and to the lake with stop offs at various points to take in the stunning scenery and if you wish a swim in the lagoon....simply stunning!
A 3 hour tour takes you through the badlands on different tracks, to the lake a swim and much much more!
You will be asked for credit or debit card details at the time of booking, this is NOT for pre-payment but for security against your booking, I.E. no show, late cancellations or damage to the equipment ETC.
