Overview
Escape the city and acquaint yourself with the Catalan countryside on a horseback riding tour that’s suitable for beginner and experienced riders alike. Under the care of your guide, either canter, trot, or gallop along horse riding trails in the heart of the forest. Your horse is selected according to your confidence and experience to ensure an enjoyable excursion for all. Upgrade to include hotel pickup for an even more convenient trip.
Highlights
  • Opt for an alternative sightseeing experience on horseback
  • Suitable for all experience levels
  • Feel confident under the direction of a guide
  • A picnic-style lunch of Spanish delicacies is included
What to Expect
Your tour begins in central Barcelona, where you’ll board an air-conditioned minivan destined for the Catalan countryside; or, add on hotel pickup for more convenience. On arrival at the stables, you’ll receive a safety briefing and get matched with a horse suited to your confidence and riding experience. Once you feel ready, set out at a leisurely canter through pine groves, forests, and secluded country trails, stopping intermittently to take photos and listen to commentary on the flora and fauna. Back at the ranch, you’ll revitalize with a picnic lunch consisting of a Spanish omelet, freshly baked bread, and cheeses. Relax on a smooth minivan transfer back to the city.

Tour guide was wonderful and easy to work with. Our riding guide was great as well. The riding and the scenery (a lot of long distance views at elevation, including of the Mediterranean) was fantastic. Equestrian center was super and the horses in great shape and well cared

Really friendly and helpful staff, amazing landscape, friendly horses, and the best for a couple of a “mother-first-time-rider and daughter-used-to”. We were told everything how to handle, starting with making friends to the horses. It was my first time and I was a bit afraid...

This trip was a nice combination of sightseeing and riding. However if you are an experienced rider be advised it is walking only. The guide and horses are quarter horses very calm and easy to ride.

My family was disappointed, this was a terrible tour. The customer service provided by the guides was awful. Our driver Marc was 20 minutes late to our meeting point. He did not tell us how long the drive would be, the name of the ranch, or anything about the tour. Our guide

Thank you for your feedback. For us, your comments are very important to continue improving our service. We regret that the experience was not up to your expectations and we apologize for it. In regular tours, it is possible that other riders are participating. I reccommend that experienced riders take a private tour instead of an open group one. Likewise, I apologize for the delay; Marc emailed you before the tour at the same time he was making efforts to minimize the delay. We try to be informative at all times and we will try to improve it with all of your comments. In reference to the lunch, it consists of bread with tomato, wine jug, chorizo, Spanish omelette, olives and fruit. The meal can vary a little depending on the fruits of the season. I sincerely regret that the tour was not up to your expectations and invite you to see the improvements implemented thanks to your comment the next time you visit our city.
