The Valleys of Gredos

Ride Overview

This horseback riding holiday in Spain passes through the Valleys of Gredos, one of the most distinctive regions of the Iberian Peninsula. River valleys, surrounded by rugged mountains, are dotted with small villages. Here and there a towering castle perches in austere grandeur on a hill and an ancient monastery lies in a valley.

Accommodations

Lodging is planned in small and very comfortable village and rural hotels, providing twin-bedded rooms and en-suite baths. The accommodations have been carefully chosen for the quality and welcoming to the riders and horses.

Meals & Drink

A support vehicle will follow the riders during the entire trip, meeting for meals and at night. Breakfast, 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.
