Dali Coast Trail

Ride Overview

The base of the Dali Coast Trail is built around the so-called Dali-triangle that consists of the villages Cadaques, Figueres and Pubol. Here you can experience authentic horse riding in Spain while aboard fine Andalusians. The trail connects the charm of the Empordanet region with the long sandy beaches of the Bay of Roses and the wild coast of the Cap de Creus. It will bring you closer to this wonderful artist; through its diverse countryside where you will begin to feel his strong, local roots. Experience for yourself  Catalonia’s wild beauty that attracted painters like Dali in the mid 19th century who drew inspiration from the spectacular coastline, the intense green fields and forests, the deep blue Mediterranean Sea and sky, and the reddish brown and black tones of the lava stones.

Accommodations

Lodging is planned in small, very comfortable village and rural hotels, providing twin-bedded rooms, most with en-suite baths (on 1-2 nights the bathroom and shower could be in the hallway), though they may be small in size.  When available, places with character and history have been chosen.  Single accommodations can be arranged at an additional charge which is to be paid locally.

Meals & Drink

A support vehicle will follow during the entire trip, meeting for meals and at night. Breakfast, aperitifs, lunch and dinner are included while on the trek. Local cuisine is excellent and much consideration is taken when planning the meals to provide visitors 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.
