Horseback riding in Andalusia in the Sierra Nevada. In the south of Andalusia, the Sierra Nevada rises above the Mediterranean: the highest massif in Spain, formed by a succession of domes and donkeys. From the height of 3,478 meters, on clear days, you can see from your horse, the African coast. Due to its isolation and altitude, the massif is the refuge of countless endemic plants adapted to its Mediterranean latitude. It includes 66 plant species as well as 80 animal species. The Sierra Nevada is classified as a biosphere reserve by the UNESCO. A large part of its territory has also been classified as a National Park for its natural resources.
Andalusia in the Sierra Nevada is a privileged destination for horseback riding, whether you ride on its steep southern slope overlooking the Mediterranean with many white villages, or on its southern slope, softer, with at its foot landscapes reminiscent of those of North Africa covered with fields of almond trees, olive trees and many orchards. Extend your horseback riding trip in Andalusia with a visit to Granada and its unmissable Alhambra ! The most prestigious witness of the Muslim presence in Andalusia from the 7th to the 15th century.
