Catalonia Coast horse riding trip in Spain

Catalonia Coast Trail

Ride Overview

Catalonia is a region of diverse landscapes, mild climate and complex cultural history, and the Catalonia Coast Trail opens the wild side of this region to you. On the three shorter days, you visit the castle of Perelade, a bodega and cathedral, as well as enjoy a wine tasting and visit the oldest P.R.E Stud in Catalonia. The pace of this horse riding trip in Spain is moderate so you can savor the rich sensory impressions and also enjoy the gracious accommodations that await you each evening.

Accommodations

Lodging is planned in small and very comfortable village and rural hotels, providing twin-bedded rooms and en-suite baths.  When available, places with character and history have been chosen.  Rooms on most nights have en-suite facilities, though they may be small in size.  Single accommodations can be arranged at an additional charge.

Meals & Drink

A support vehicle will follow the riders during the entire trip, meeting for meals and at night. Breakfast, aperitifs and most meals are included while on the trek. The local cuisine is excellent and much consideration is taken when planning the meals to provide riders with a sampling of the many different dishes produced in the area. 2 dinners and 1 lunch are not included in the cost and there is a 90 Euro fee payable locally in cash to the outfitter at the first dinner to cover those 3 restaurant meals.
