SELF GUIDED ROUTE WITH GPS
BARDENA NEGRA MTB | GRAVEL
Located on the southern edge of Bardena, La Negra could also be called the Unknown Bardena. Usually, visitors frequent the most popular areas of the BARDENA BLANCA such as Castildeterra and El Rallón, thereby ensuring that the rest of Bardena maintains its "semi-desert" status.
BARDENA NEGRA PUNTO BIKE is therefore a 2-stage route proposal which allows us to explore the most authentic and lonely corners of this inhospitable region in an intense weekend.
With base points in Tudela and Tauste the track runs West - East the Bardena navarra first and the aragonesa later in stage A. In stage B we first cross from south to north the hidden and somewhat technical paths of the Aragonese Bardena then turning West to head back to Tudela making the last kilometers of the route through the BARDENA BLANCA.

In the surroundings of Cabanillas more than in "La Negra" it will seem to us to be in the Bardena Orange.
National Park environment in the Natural Reserve of Las Caidas de la Negra from the vicinity of Cabezo de Sancho Abarca.
Typical constructions of Las Bardenas, Corral de Farrique. We are on the border with the Bardena Aragonesa.
Cabezos de Sancho Abarca (left) Peña El Fraile (center) and Punta del Aguilar (right) are the last formations of the Bardenas in the South. We rest at the top of Sancho Abarca and then start a long descent to Tauste.
From Sancho Abarca, the typical Bardenas territory is diluted in the Ebro Basin.
Amazing scene of locals planting melons on the "roof" of their house/cave on our arrival in Tauste, a "Desert City".
Apparently, in Tauste, nature gave ready-made houses.
Pyrenean Range seen from the slopes of the summit of La Negra in the first section of the day.
Memories of the past in the Plana de La Negra.

The base of PIRINEOS PUNTO BIKE in Tudela 3 star establishment strongly linked to the world of cycling in all its styles. In its vicinity we will have cleaning boxes to remove dust and mud from the Bardenas of our bicycles, and inside all the comforts that cyclists and their bikes need.
At this stage, which ends in the south of the Bardenas we can decide whether to stay in Tauste, which will be easy to perceive as a city that receives us on our trip through the desert or stay to “live” one night at the top of the Cabezo of Sancho Abarca in the hotel of the existing Sanctuary at the top. An experience, the latter not without isolation but certainly enduring in our future memory.
This option reduces the length of the stages by approximately 16 kilometers.
