Highlights of the Pyrenees, a magnificent scenic route, in which you will reach heights up to 2800m of altitude. Through its crests, you will cross entire valleys. You will have the opportunity to admire the alpine landscape in areas that are not accessible to vehicles. You will ride through deep valleys and rocky reliefs in which it will seem that you have landed on the moon. You will reach spectacular altitudes where you can contemplate the mountains, a spectacle of nature! This route has a combination of some trots and gallops and some sections in which you will have to walk.

    This is a very good riding school in a beautiful location. The owners are very friendly and attentive and the teachers and guides are great. They offer wonderful excursions and multi-day trips as well as day classes, multi-day camps for kids and you can even play horse soccer. The facilities are very practical and have a rustic look, blending in perfectly with the landscape.
