Our past experiences of arranging accommodation for clients has shown that, above all, a top quality hotel to relax and recuperate in at the end of a hard day's off-road biking is practically a necessity. In contrast to most of our competitors, we only use 4-star hotels (where possible).
One of the places where that is impossible, however, is in the town of Valderrobres, where our main base is, and where the epicentre of our Aragon tours is. There are no 4-star hotels here, but several high-quality 3-star hotels (they don't have swimming pools, so no 4 stars). We deliberately chose Valderrobres in late 2010 as our new main operating base, so why, if there are no 4-star hotels? Well, Valderrobres is the capital town of the surrounding Matarranya district, a stunningly beautiful part of Spain, and often referred to as "The Tuscany of Spain". As well as a historical medieval old part of town, Valderrobres has loads of great bars, cafes, restaurants, and an ever-present welcoming feel any day of the year. We use the best hotel in town - Hotel El Salt .
For our Andorra tours, we've selected Hotel Delfos , a quality 4-star hotel located in the town of Escaldes, Andorra. Hotel Delfos is an impressive, luxury hotel, ideally situated, and only 2 minutes walk from the shopping paradise of the 'capital', Andorra La Vella.
Our Spanish Pyrenees tours to the Mediterranean use several hotels, all chosen for their similar high standards. Favourites include Hotel Edelweiss , the Traditional Pyrenean mountain hotel in the extremely picturesque village in Camprodon. On the coast, at Roses (25km south of France / Spain border) we prefer Hotel Mediterraneo , another great place to relax after a couple of days biking, and only 3 minutes walk to the beach.
Terra Alta tours are based in the luxurious 4-star Hotel Flamingo in L'Ampolla. This hotel was chosen as it is by far the highest quality hotel in the area. Opened in 2005, and situated 2 minutes walk from the village centre, the hotel enjoys panoramic views over the Mediterranean sea, looking directly out to the Delta of Spain's longest river, the River Ebre. It boasts every possible luxury - indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna, internet connection in every room, and Wi-Fi in the bar / foyer area. Where possible, all TrailbikeTours clients will have rooms with sea views and large sun-facing balconies.
For our Ural Mountains, Russia tour, we use a variety of accommodation types. As the Ural mountains are so sparsely populated, obviously there are vast areas where no hotels exist. For this reason we spend 3 nights camping in the wilderness, normally at a picturesque remote mountain lake where we can swim or fish for dinner, or deep in the Russian taiga. Other nights are in the best hotels available in the area, including a night in a luxurious log cabin in a delux Ekopark mountain resort in a stunning protected National Park. All accommodation on this tour is chosen, not only for comfort, but to get a greater feel for this remarkable country.
Our Trans-Spain tours from Andorra to Portugal are more testing, so we have chosen the best quality and luxurious hotels we can find in the area. Most hotels are Paradors (state owned, very high quality 4 and 5 star hotels), but where this is impossible, we use smaller, but just as high quality traditional hotels.
