Horseback riding on the beach in Spain

Mediterranean Trail

Ride Overview

The Mediterranean Trail offers a day of horseback riding on the beach in Spain and has opportunities for fast riding on beautiful Andalusian horses with much time spent in the saddle. You will enjoy comfortable accommodations en-route in natural stone houses and family-run farms and hotels and while riding will enjoy trots, canters and gallops through farmland and beautiful and ancient villages. Enjoy this ride in the land where the mountains meet the sea and where you can fulfill your dream of galloping on beaches.

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, for two nights showers and bathrooms could be across the hall. Single accommodations can be arranged at an additional charge but may not be available every night.

Meals & Drink

A support vehicle will follow riders during the entire trip, meeting for meals and at night. Breakfast, aperitifs, lunch and dinner are included while on the trek. The 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. One lunch is not included in the price of the ride and a flat fee of 20 Euro is payable for this at the welcome dinner in cash.
