B assella, in the far northeast of Spain, offered in this Year the dream backdrop for a special jeep meeting. The Jeep Owners Group, newly founded three years ago, the club for brand friends managed by Jeep itself, invited to the third “Camp Jeep” and celebrated the brand's 75th birthday. The correct conclusions were drawn from the somewhat mixed-up previous events in Italy and France, and the location and structure of the meeting were considerably improved.

This time, the camp was set up much more compactly on an extensive motocross track, the cross-country tracks Marked out directly adjacent and set up the campsite at the scenic Pantà de Rialb reservoir, a few meters from the festival site.

Sensational trails

The organizers had the real highlight of the third Camp Jeep however, it “only” has an influence through the choice of the venue. Without exaggeration, the sensational trails through the foothills of the Pyrenees on the border with Andorra would have been worth the journey alone.

The route is friendly to robust, with stages that also take place after a differential lock demanded, crowned by majestic views from the peaks of the surrounding mountains. Thanks to the disciplined jeepers and careful scouts, accompanied by local rangers, tours in the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park were also possible.
