Sure you can quadbike at home, but ramp up the adventure by quadbiking in the mountain air of Catalonia.
Catalonia (or Catalunya, depending upon which language you’re using) is a region in northeast Spain characterised by its own language, distinctive culture and quest for autonomy.
Adventure in Catalonia
Catalonia already builds giant human pyramids in the name of celebration, so it’s not surprising that adventure travel thrives here now that the local mining industry has wound down.
Berga is a small farming town in the Berguedà province, an hour and a half from Barcelona. It’s surrounded by rolling fields, the sort that gather steam before growing into the peaks of the Pyrenees nearby.
If you have an attack of nerves, you can always become the passenger and leave someone else to do the driving, though in my experience it’s better to be the one in control…
Here’s a short video of the warm up (no time to film once we really got going):

Disclosure – the Catalunya Tourist Board organized this quadbike adventure as part of their Blogtrip for Influential European Bloggers.
The Indomit Centre d’Aventura organizes quadbiking excursions from the village of Berga, as well as segway tours, paintballing, archery and more. To make the weekend cheaper, it’s better to travel as a group and hire a car from Barcelona.
