A four and a half hour ride. Dinner and accommodation at the hotel.

Day 3: TREVÉLEZ – CÁDIAR. After crossing the bridge over the Trevélez river, we will start this route by a bridle path that climbs the left slope of the ravine, leaving behind the village from which it takes its name. Once again we will enjoy the beauty of the sierras Contraviesa, Lújar and Gádor, this one already in the province of Almería. Descent along a more gentle path to Juviles, where we will have lunch.

Dinner and accommodation at the hotel.

Day 4: CÁDIAR – PICENA – LAROLES. Riding first over the hills with stunning panoramic views of Sierra Nevada and the sierras of Contraviesa and Gádor, then we will ride along the dry riverbed to arrive at Ugíjar for a picnic.

Day 6: BENECID – ALCORA – RÁGOL. Across Sierra Gádor, riding on a track enjoying the open view of Sierra Nevada, on the other side of the Andarax river. After crossing Cortijo Cacín we ride to the old “Venta de Alcora” for picnic-lunch. During the morning ride there are some opportunities for gallops with a magnificent panoramic.  After a short rest, ride for 2 hours to the Casita de Crista and the village of Rágol where we leave the horses. A five  hour ride. Drive  to Canjayar (4 Km). Dinner and accommodation at the hotel in the town’s central square.

Crossing the Andarax river and riding to the mountain of Montenegro through the Rambla (dry river bed) of Guadix, with many opportunities for canters and where we start to discover the first desert landscape. Descend to the colourful dry riverbed of Alboloduy through a labyrinth of canyons similar to those seen in numerous spaghetti-western films. At the end of the Rambla de Los Yesos, we will arrive at Alboloduy, at the edge of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park. After saying goodbye to the horses, lunch in the village. After lunch drive to Granada (2 hours drive). Dinner in a typical restaurant and accommodation in a hotel.
