This program offers a 4-day opportunity to explore and appreciate the Alpujarras region. Known for its extraordinary natural beauty, this area showcases a diverse landscape that presents striking contrasts in scenery. From the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada National Park to the fertile valleys filled with olive and almond groves, one can even catch a glimpse of the Mediterranean Sea on a clear day. This region is a fascinating blend of Arab and Christian influences, serving as a once impenetrable stronghold for various communities that settled here. 

As we venture deep into the heart of this area, passing through multiple villages, it feels like stepping back in time to 19th-century Spain. Travelers are captivated by the ever-changing face of the landscape and vegetation, experiencing different micro-climates along the way. Following ancient bridle paths, which wind through numerous ravines where melted snowwater flows, our route immerses us in the charm of this region.

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.
