The Alpujarras is a stunning and majestic landscape that offers a perfect setting for a horseback holiday in Spain. Its exceptional natural beauty remains unchanged since the Rebellion of the Moors 400 years ago. The villages, with their whitewashed buildings, cling to the cliffs, providing breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea on clear days. 

During this trail, which lasts five nights, we venture deep into the heart of this region, immersing ourselves in an experience reminiscent of 19th-century Spain. I possess a good knowledge of the routes having over 30 years of experience leading trail rides in these mountains. The Pure Andalusians, beloved and sure-footed horses, are ideal companions for navigating the steep trails. Additionally, this trail guarantees the opportunity to make new friends along the way.

I chose to leave the busy city life of Madrid and settle in a peaceful mountain village. I embarked on my horse-riding journey in the Alpujarras over two decades ago. Fluent in Spanish, French and English. Be sure that you'll have an incredible riding vacation.

    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.
