Horseback Riding Tour in Natural Park from Barcelona

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Saddle up and set off on a horseback adventure through a stunning natural park! On this half-day tour from Barcelona, you’ll travel by minibus to the Catalan countryside with an expert local guide. Aimed at novice- to intermediate and advance-level riders, your horseback tour will go at a steady pace, taking in breathtaking scenery that you might not otherwise have the opportunity to see. A light lunch plus two hours of riding time is included, comprising 30 minutes at the ranch and 1.5 hours in the park.
  • Opt for an alternative sightseeing experience on horseback
  • Suitable for all experience levels
  • Feel confident under the direction of a guide
  • A picnic-style lunch of Spanish delicacies is included
What to Expect
Your tour begins in central Barcelona, where you’ll board an air-conditioned minivan destined for the Catalan countryside; or, add on hotel pickup for more convenience. On arrival at the stables, you’ll receive a safety briefing and get matched with a horse suited to your confidence and riding experience. Once you feel ready, set out at a leisurely canter through pine groves, forests, and secluded country trails, stopping intermittently to take photos and listen to commentary on the flora and fauna. Back at the ranch, you’ll revitalize with a picnic lunch consisting of a Spanish omelet, freshly baked bread, and cheeses. Relax on a smooth minivan transfer back to the city.

This trip was a nice combination of sightseeing and riding. However if you are an experienced rider be advised it is walking only. The guide and horses are quarter horses very calm and easy to ride.

Where we rode was pretty steep ... there was maybe one area where you could get up to a short gallop, but not many.

I dont see why he couldnt, there is a nice area with picnic tables right at the stables. A whole bunch of dogs and a couple of birds around there to keep him company.
