Programme intro

HORSE RIDING TRIP IN SPAIN
INDICATIVE ITINERARY*

Day 1: Arrival at the equestrian and rural tourism center. Welcome and presentation of your ride before the evening meal.

Day 2: The moment of departure has arrived. It's time to get in touch with your week ride companion and to familiarize yourself with him to start your ride calmly and quietly towards the Ter River and Montgrí, passing through fortified farms. You can see how the inhabitants could defend themselves against the attacks of pirates. You continue down Montgrí until you reach the beach. You cross the river and you go back to the center, along the crops, lands that in time were ponds and swamps.

Day 3: Today you ride to the mountains, you approach the medieval villages, you go to Peratallada and you contemplate what was until the XVIII century a lake, and 2000 years ago: the sea. In Peratallada, Canapost , Castell d'Empordà, Monells, Cruilles, you discover stone constructions of the Medieval period. Afterwards, you arrive at your new accommodation where, after taking care of your horse, you enjoy a quiet environment, and in the evening you will enjoy traditional dishes prepared by Joan and Marta.

Day 4: The Romantic Mirador of the Costa Brava! Today the ride takes you under the cork oaks and chestnut trees, while passing through St Cebriá de Lladó, "Els Metges" romantic times with unmatched views of the Pyrenees and the Costa Brava. Then you find the first megalithic remains, a dolmen, in a strategic point of "Puig d'Arques". You ride down and head to your evening accommodation. By narrow paths you join the hermitage of Sta Llucia d'Arboç, another example of the Romanesque construction of the region. You arrive and all you have to do is rest, since the next day will be long.

Day 5: Until the sea! Today you go to the beach. After a good breakfast, you go horseback to the beach. On the way you can see old ice pits, very common in the neighborhoods, the Dolmen "Tres Peus", one of the best preserved megalithic monuments of the region. Then you enjoy the wide views of the plain with the Mediterranean blue sea as a backdrop, with a few stops along the way to discover various monuments such as the church of Sta. Coloma de Fitor, from the 10th century, through the forests and Roman trails, near the medieval village of Pals, where you will be staying tonight, a few meters from the beach.

Day 6: Costa Brava. A circular ride through the green oaks, cork oaks and pine forests. While heading to the highest point to enjoy the beauty of the landscape with splendid views of the beach of Pals. From there, Christopher Columbus sailed on his first voyage to America. You continue your way to the beach where you can rest since tomorrow you will wake up very early.

Day 7: Today, departure is early to enjoy a ride on the beach, depending on the dates. We are inside a natural park and there may be periodic access restrictions. You continue to the mouth of the river Ter. You leave the sea by fields of apple trees, rice paddies.

Day 8: End of your hike after breakfast.
