Horseback riding trip in AndalusiaA special program in superior accommodation, designed for those who wish to do less than a full week ride, and possibly extend your stay to visit Andalusia: Granada, Seville, Almeria, Cordoba ...
The Cabo de Gata Park is located in the south-east of Spain in the far south-east of Andalusia, in the Gulf of Almeria. The Cabo de Gata Park is one of the jewels of Andalusia, Spain and the Mediterranean, it is probably one of the few spaces of the Mediterranean coast that has remained wild. Since 1997, the park has been declared a "biosphere reserve" by UNESCO for its ecological wealth. "Where the sun passes the winter": with approximately 2965 hours of sunshine, we can say that it is in this region of Andalusia that the sun passes the winter, with mild temperatures all year round. Small coves with crystal clear waters, ancient volcanoes converted into red lava mountains give the image of the Sierra de Gata, a lunar desert. Oasis of palm trees and small white fishing villages, remind us of the invasions of pirates. Here were shot famous adventure movies like Indiana Jones, Lawrence of Arabia, A fistful of Dollars.

Genoveses, Monsul, Media Luna, and the Arrecife de las Sirenas (the mermaid reef) are undoubtedly the last wild Mediterranean beaches. With their white sand dunes, they served as film sets such as Indiana Jones, Lawrence of Arabia, "A fistful of Dollars". Picnic at the foot of the cortijo "el romeral", one of the typical facilities that used to be housing for farmers in the area. In the afternoon, you will ride up by the valley "del tesorillo". About 5 hours riding. Dinner. Night in hotel.

Day 3: SAN JOSÉ> RODALQUILAR
image-20220421184326-1North of the park are the mountains of the Sierra de Gata, which have preserved the boilers of the ancient volcanoes, surrounded by a lunar landscape and villages like "Los Albaricoques" where were shot several famous westerns: "For a handful of dolars "," The Good, the Bad and the Ugly ", etc ... The streets names are:" Clint Eastwood "," Sergio Leones "... Lunch in one of the most special sites of the park," el cortijo del Fraile " , where took place the events that inspired Federico Garcia for his work "Bodas de Sangre" (Blood Wedding). About 5.30 hours on horseback. Pace of the day: today the pace is a little slower because of the volcanic terrain. Despite this, you will enjoy the sandy "ramblas" to enjoy 2 gallops in the morning and 2 gallops in the afternoon. Dinner with grilled fish at the seaside in a local restaurant. Night in hotel.

Reviews
GUEST REVIEWS
Carolie (France) - November 2019

« The guide is extremely kind and available to share his passion with us. Horses on top ! My mare (Habana) was very attentive, it is a real pleasure to ride a horse in these conditions. We feel that the horses are very well treated, and very well trained to be comfortable on all the paths taken. Very good saddlery, saddle bags at the front and back of the saddles to be able to take small stuff with us all day. Very good hotels, the rooms are very spacious. The restaurants in each of the hotels were also very good.
In summary: Excellent ride with a perfectly trained and comfortable cavalry. The guide is very pleasant, speaking French, English and Spanish to adapt to the needs of the group, and willingly sharing his knowledge of the surroundings but also of course the horses. Everything is perfectly organized so that you only have to worry about enjoying the horses, the landscapes and eating local ! I highly recommend.
Cap Rando services: Excellent relationship with Didier, very responsive to respond to all my requests. »
