A light lunch plus two hours of riding time is included, comprising 30 minutes at the ranch and 1.5 hours in the park.

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city

Meet your friendly guide in central Barcelona and leave for a natural park by air-conditioned minibus.
When you reach the stables, your guide will give you a quick safety briefing and show you how to put on your riding hat, before helping you into the saddle for a practice session around the riding arena and show you basic command such as walk and halt for approximately 30 minutes. Every effort will be made to ensure that you’re well matched to your horse, with novice riders given the gentlest ones.
Setting off at a leisurely pace, follow your guide on horseback along secluded roads to this incredible park. Here, you’ll ride through the Catalan countryside typified by leafy forests, lush pine groves and rolling hills. Your guide’s expert knowledge of the local terrain means that you’ll be taken on the best trails to suit your ability.
While this riding tour is aimed at novice- to intermediate-level riders, should you be more advanced, your guide will give you the opportunity to trot or canter through this gorgeous countryside. After roughly 1.5 hours of riding, return to the stables and help the groom unsaddle, shower or feed your horse.
Before returning to Barcelona, sit down and relax with the rest of your group to enjoy a light lunch of bread, Spanish omelet and cheeses, while sharing tales of your unforgettable horseback adventure in Spain.

Everything was great about the experience except the time of the excursion, too early 8am but it was still worth it.

Our van driver was very friendly, the ride was fun but I wish it had lasted a little longer, and the snack after the ride was delicious! Really nice way to spend a morning.

Our Guide was Lorena she pick us at the right time. drove us to the stable. At the stable we mate our guide which first, provided some riding instructions and safety giddiness, and than we ride the horses through very nice trail back to the stable. Our guide Lorena prepared nice Spanish style refreshment, and drove us back to Barcelona. Overall very nice tour.

This was an absolute highlight for my trip! I cannot say enough kind words about Laia and Alex! Laia was the most kind and informed tour guide I have had during my time in Barcelona. Laia went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable and went above and beyond pointing our important sights during our drive to the horse stables. Alex, the equestrian trainer, made me feel safe and comfortable before ever leaving the stables. Alex is such an amazing trainer making this tour perfect for any level rider. Laia, took many pictures during the day and said she will be share them with me over email! During the tour you have amazing views of Barcelona from the sea, city center and mountains. I was also impressed with how fluent Alex and Laia were in English - this was a treat making communication easy throughout the day. All together, the short riding lesson in the arena, tour through the park and delicious Catalan meal made this a must do tour while visiting Barcelona!

My friend at the Crater of Mt. Vesuvius!

We made it to the top of Mt. Vesuvius, the Mountain that covered Pompeii in ash. The photo doesn't do it justice. The size and gravity of the sight is overwhelmingly cool. A must-see.
