The Alpujarras region can be explored in just 3 days with our short mountain trail ride program. This area is known for its stunning natural beauty, with a diverse landscape that offers breathtaking scenery. From the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada National Park to the lush valleys filled with olive and almond trees, there are surprising contrasts at every turn. On clear days, you may even catch a glimpse of the Mediterranean Sea in the distance. 

This region has a rich history, serving as a meeting point between Arab and Christian cultures. It was once a stronghold for various peoples who settled here. As we venture deep into the heart of this area and pass through different villages, it feels like stepping back in time to 19th Century Spain. The changing face of the landscape and vegetation in various micro-climates is a sight to behold. Our route mainly follows old bridle paths that wind through numerous ravines where the waters from melting snow flow.

    My wife and I went on a great ride with Rafael. I'm new to riding, and he was really understanding and patient with me. I learned a lot while taking in the amazing views.

    Acompañé a mis dos amigas en un paseo porque me gustan mucho los caballos. Rafa y Paco fueron muy amables, Rafa nos acompañó durante todo el recorrido, que fue maravilloso; paisajes hermosos y conversaciones agradables. Recomiendo mucho esta experiencia si quieres disfrutar de un agradable momento en la naturaleza con caballos nobles. Definitivamente volveremos.
