Catalonia Explorer Ride


Catalonia Explorer Ride
Catalonia Spain
Explore ¨el Corazon de Catalonia¨ - the heart of unknown Catalonia.

On the Catalonia Explorer Ride, beautiful Andalusian and Spanish-bred horses will adeptly guide you deep into the heart of enchanting Catalonia. The riding is as varied as the landscape: from open planes and meadows to deep river valleys and thick forests. Many opportunities to enjoy canters and gallops when you are not following the steep inclines on the winding forest trails.
Catalonia is legendary in its ability to preserve its medieval villages in their original and charming forms. Those we encounter on this trek include Besalu, Crespia, Tortella and St. Ferriol with their Romanesque monastaries, fortified walls and stone cobbled roads, banishing vehicles in favour of horses. Here, vehicles have been banished in favor of our four-legged friends for transport, making a horseback tour the perfect way to discover this special area. Catalonia cuisine and wines from the Ampurdan region are sampled and savoured throughout the trail with a diverse range of dishes and tapas and picnics making this a gourmet experience. The Catalonia Explorer also takes you for an afternoon and night to Girona (by car), northern Catalonia’s biggest city and capital of the region, itself steeped in rich history, culture and delicious gastronomy. Along the way we traverse the immense mountains and descend to the valley of Santa Pau. At times there are chances for swimming or siestas near the large river pools in the midst of encompassing wilderness. The climax of this week is a two-day trail which ventures alongside the river Fluvia (important river in Catalonia) through the beautiful scenery of the Garrotxa into the High Ampurdan region where we enjoy varied flora and fauna and explore some very interesting villages.
With such a varied range of cuisine, landscape and adventures, a rider on the Catalonia Explorer is never hungry nor bored; come discover for yourself!

"To discover Catalonia for the first time is a great experience -  to discover Catalonia on horseback is unforgettable”
