Introduction to Trail Riding in Peneda Gerês
Northern Portugal Portugal

This tour caters to novice riders who want to try their hand at trail riding in a secure environment (experienced guides) and surrounded by beautiful landscapes. 

Peneda Gerês National Park is located in northern Portugal, at the border with the region of Galicia in Spain. It is considered one of the wildest places in Portugal and features some stunning landscapes. Due to its unique characteristics and its considerable nature conservation efforts, this park has been declared a Biosphere reserve by UNESCO.

The program will starts off with the basics of horseback riding (how to behave around a horse, how to lead a horse on foot...) and will teach you more and more every day, ending with a beautiful day ride in the mountains, including short sections of trots and canter!
