“Get Some Winter Sun While Enjoying A Fantastic Enduro Mountain Bike Holiday
Are you looking to escape the winter and ride some fantastic trails in the Pyrenees, with around 60% uplift? Look no further! Our Winter Enduro trip is the perfect way to escape your muddy or snowy trails and enjoy a fantastic mountain bike holiday, riding the foothills of the Pyrenees where the winters are crisp and dry. Using vans and specially arranged uplifts we will ride some of the best trails in Zona Zero, home to the Enduro World Series, and the surrounding areas over the course of a week. This is what the guides at basqueMTB do during their off season and now we want to open it up to guests for a special week this year.

Zona Zero is a natural trail center, sitting in the southern foothills of the Pyrenees, and is regularly touted as one of the best areas in Spain for mountain biking. The climate is very dry with over 300 sunny days a year, and winters are generally dry with cold nights which give way to cool days. Typically we would expect to start the day with a warm jacket and by 10:30am be riding in short sleeves. The trails in Zona Zero are fantastic with long, flowing singletrack descents ideal for mountain biking.
BasqueMTB have been involved with Zona Zero since it´s start and are official guides for the area, with our local connections you will really see the best the area has to offer in a way you never could by yourself. We use our vans to link up the best trails, and usually some local secrets, letting you see the best of the area during your weeks holiday.
Surrounding Zona Zero the Pyrenees offer a whole range of fantastic mountainbiking which, sadly, most of the mountain bikers who travel to ride the trails in Zona Zero never see. The aim of this holiday is to use Zona Zero as a base and explore many of these trails. We aim to ride around 3 days within the Zona Zero area and another 3 days outside the main area, meaning you get to see the best of the area and get the biggest variety of trails possible.
Our Winter Enduro mountain bike holidays are available during December, January and February..
All our weeks are tailored to the guests and during the booking process we will discuss your requirements and make sure you are put in with a suitable group. Each week we aim to run two groups with a guide, driver, van and trailer each to allow people to choose the group which best suits their level.
“Winter Enduro” Mountain Bike Holiday: Riding Areas
We will offer a transfer to and from Barcelona airport. This will be arranged once a day and you should aim to arrive before mid afternoon so that you get to your hotel in time. The return transfer will be around 9am, meaning there is plenty of time to get a flight around 1pm or later.
If you are coming by car then the ferry to Bilbao or Santander is a good option.
From Paris you can take the TGV direct to Hendaye and we will take you from there.
For our Winter Enduro trips we will arrange transfers from Barcelona using a private bus. You should arrive no later than mid afternoon and depart no earlier than early afternoon.
We pick up on Saturday in Barcelona. Please get in touch to discuss your travel before booking flights.
The Winter Enduro trip starts and finishes on Saturday. Due to the logistics shorter trips aren´t possible.
“Winter Enduro” Bike Holiday Accommodation
AccommodationFor this trip we will be staying in appartments right in the center of Ainsa. The high standard of our accommodation is something that people usually comment on.
We pride ourselves of the high quality of eating that you will experience on our mountain bike holidays! We love to eat and also enjoy trying the good wines and we relish the chance to share the great traditional Spanish places that we have found with our guests. We can’t guarantee that you will lose weight on our trips!
We include two packed lunches, on other days lunches will cost around €5-10 each day and dinners will cost from €10 to €20 each night.
Visiting Spain Alone?All of our prices are calculated on the basis of two people sharing a room. We don’t charge a single person supplement, however we will aim to put two single people, of the same gender, into the same room. If you really don’t want this then we need to charge a single person supplement, please get in touch to ask about this. If you are traveling as an odd numbered group we will try to offer you the option of 3 to a room rather than sharing with a stranger, if we do that we will make sure there is a room large enough to make this comfortable! Depending on availability we can also offer an individual room, however due to the quality of the accommodation we use this isn’t a cheap option, full details are on the booking page.

Basque Coast: Extra Holiday Information
Due to the logistics day trips or shorter breaks are not available on this trip.
Bike hire details are available on the mountain bike hire page.
Our best holiday if you would like to take a non riding partner is the fantastic riding on the Basque Coast. Having said that the Winter Enduro trip could be suitable for an independent non-rider. There are lovely walks from the town we will stay in and if they have their own transport then they could often ski during the day while we are biking. Due to the winter day length we are often back in the town by 5:30pm, meaning there is plenty of time to spend with your partner during the evenings.
If someone wanted a day off biking then that is something we can do on this mountain bike holiday. We stay in a beautiful medieval town with a lovely spa and we can organise a really nice day off the bike if anyone fancies it.
