Segway, quad or 4x4 routes

Quad Bikes

Quad bikes are four-wheeled motorcycles of considerable power, with exceptional stability and manoeuvrability on winding terrain; it is very difficult to turn them over. There are many tracks in Navarre where you can drive them, although you have to keep an eye on the regulations governing them that are published each year by the Department of the Interior.

Segway

Segway is one of the latest fashions in personal transport; it could be defined as the bicycle of the 21st century. It is a means of transport that is both silent and respectful of the environment, powered by long-life lithium batteries.

It does not build up a great speed and has on-board shock absorbers and a good cushioning system to maximise stability and safety. It has two pneumatic wheels, set in parallel on a type of skateboard, with handlebars that improve the user’s sense of balance.

Easy to use, it gives good performance in wooded and on mountainous terrain, which means that it is ideal for exploring some of the most beautiful spots in Navarre: the Bardenas Reales wilderness and the Irati Forest being two good examples.

As well as in the zones mentioned below, companies in the market contract their services in other parts of Navarre:
