When the ride begins, the off road vehicles leave heading northwards. They go along paths, pine forests and end in the dunes, where the adrenaline charge blows up in unsurpassable emotion due to the majestic places they come across, most of them unknown.

Just then, they stop to tell everybody that, from that point onwards, they are going to climb large dunes, till they get to some dunes which height reach 50 meters or more, depending on the level of confidence and assurance of the participants.
The experience is singular and unforgettable. The vehicles stop at the top of the dunes to watch all the beauty of the horizon. Everybody is amazed at understanding the fantastic epic that man went through to stabilize the dunes that form present-day Pinamar.
During the return, people comment enthusiastically on the experience they have just lived, and the drivers strengthen their skills and prove to be sublime pilots.
