Day 3: The Gavarres Park. Today, you cross the Gavarres mountains to Pals beach. The Gavarres Park is very rich, you ride in the shade in beautiful oak forests, hazelnut and chestnut trees, in contrast to the rest of the essentially Mediterranean territory, and along the streams coming from the mountains. You continue your ride passing by the beautiful medieval village of Pals, from the IX-15th century, one of the stars of the region, a charming stone village with cobbled alleys decorated with flowers. It sits on top of a small hill where you can see the sea in the distance: spectacular views from a medieval village. You continue to your evening hotel, just a 5-minute walk from the beach, where you can rest or take a stroll on the beach.

Day 4: Pals beach. Shortly after daybreak and after breakfast at the hotel, you prepare the horses and arrive at the beach along a flat area of ​​marshland and rice fields. You will arrive on the large Pals beach, more than 3.5 km of sand bordered by dunes and pines. From this beach you have magnificent views of the Medes Islands, one of the most photographed panoramas on the Costa Brava. On horseback, by the sea and with the rays of the sun piercing the horizon, you have an indescribable feeling of freedom. You then leave towards the starting point of your ride with the Ter river as a travel companion along the crops, apple trees in particular.

Reviews
GUEST REVIEWS
Camille (Switzerland) – November 2019

Reception: Super welcome from the manager, very caring, with home cooked meals at all meals. We even had a Catalan dessert cooked in front of us the last evening.
Cavalry: The general condition of the cavalry (Excellent). My horse (Excellent). Well-treated, well-fed horses that evolve in a healthy outdoor environment.
Saddlery & Equipment: Excellent. Endurance material, Wintec synthetic saddle, good condition.
The comfort, cleanliness and comfort of the accommodation (s): Excellent. Very nice cottage, spacious room with bathtub.
Your general satisfaction on the stay: Excellent stay with very attentive staff, nice and well-treated horses and various landscapes every day!
Quality of the Cap Rando services: Excellent. Good follow-up of our file despite our many discussions, listening to our desires and constraints, we recommend Cap Rando! Only small point of improvement: we asked for a paying transfer and asked if another option was possible: we were told that we could rent a car. However, we discovered when arriving on site by the service provider that it was possible to take a train to access a closer town, which would have reduced the cost of the transfer. To reconsider for the next customers.
