The beautiful and extremely diverse land of the Alpujarras ranges from pine forests and alpine meadows, wooded valleys and gorges, to almond, olive and orange groves. La Alpujarra is the name given to the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The floral and fauna of the Alpujarras is spectacular with a fantastic range of views and scenery. We follow old moorish mule paths and valleys where the horse, mule or oxen still pull the plow and thresh the harvest. Each day of the horse riding holidays we pass through different terrain; from mountain pastures and pine forests to almond and olive groves. Here is an opportunity not only to discover spectacular landscapes and awe-inspiring scenery, but also a culture where tradition remains very much part of everyday life. The average riding time per day is between five and six hours. There are plenty of opportunities to canter or gallop, but we do occasionally have to lead the horses downhill on foot when the terrain is steep. No matter what the pace, the ride will be breathtaking. One of the best riding opportunities in Spain.

Trail ride in the mountains of Spain – 3 days riding

Then through the ancient oak forests towards the summit of the Pico del Caballo, reaching over 2000meters of altitude, before dropping through the logging trails of the pine forests to Puente Palo. A picnic lunch is then enjoyed in the pine forest, before riding East to an idyllic location high on the slopes of the Poqueria valley, where you will spend a relaxing night in the beautiful mountain cottages.

Your trekking will be through the beautiful and extremely diverse land of the Alpujarras, ranging from pine forests and alpine meadows, wooded valleys and gorges, to almond, olive and orange groves.

The floral and fauna of the Alpujarras is spectacular at all times of the year.

We follow old moorish mulepaths and valleys where the horse, mule or oxen still pull the plow and thresh the harvest. Each day of the ride we pass through different terrain; from mountain pastures and pine forests to almond and olive groves .

The average riding time per day is between five and six hours, although we are flexible and can extend or shorten the amount of hours in the saddle each day, at the request of our riders.
