Guests can choose to relax in the reading room or TV room or they can enjoy the beautiful garden.
There is free Wi-Fi access at this property.

Hotel in Sant Llorenç de la Muga
This small hotel offers simple accommodation as well as a small garden and terrace. Each room is equipped with a TV, free Wi-Fi access and ensuite bathroom.

Hotel in Darnius
This beautiful building was originally an hydro-electric power plant. It was recently restored into a boutique hotel but the original charm was kept. The 21 bedrooms all feature a modern decor, internet access, air conditioning, a flat-screen TV and private facilities.
After a long day in the saddle, guests can choose to go for a swim or enjoy a relaxing walk in the garden.

Country House in Peralada
Tonight, you sleep in an old farmhouse from the 14th century with a lot of charm. All rooms have air conditioning / heating and their own bathroom. Guests are welcome to relax in the living room or on the terrace, to admire the beautiful view. There is also a small outdoor pool and free Wi-Fi access throughout the house.

Hotel in Llançà
For your last night, you sleep in a 3-star hotel with a lovely garden and an outdoor pool. The air conditioned rooms are comfortable and all include a TV, a safe, free internet access and a private bathroom. 

Room Occupancy
Single rooms cannot always be guaranteed though booked. If a previously confirmed single room is not available, the guest is entitled to a refund of the price paid for those nights.
Those booked as 'willing to share' will not have to pay the single supplement fee only if we are able to find a rider of the same gender to share. If we have not found someone to share 60 days prior to the trip start, then the single supplement fee applies.

Lunches and meals eaten at the restaurant are not included in the base price and an 80 euros fee needs to be paid locally at your first dinner. Please note we only accept Euros!

You will get to know the food culture of the region through the lovingly prepared dishes from fish, game, vegetables and fruits. This experience is refined by the fine wine from the growing areas of the Empordá - your taste buds will not be neglected on this journey!

During lunch breaks, you will be cared for with your saddle-bag picnics or a three-course meal prepared by our trail assistants in a beautiful setting surrounded by nature with great attention to detail.
We would like to point out that due to the pandemic, three-course table picnics cannot be served at the moment.

Our guests will be provided with fresh packed lunches (sandwiches with good fillings, fruit, something to crunch and a sweet for dessert, juice and water, etc.) by the riding operator or the hotels (exception when restaurant stops are stated for midday for which there will be no changes). The lunch packs will be carried by each guest in their saddle bags and will then be eaten at the usual rest stops during the lunch break.

During dinner at the hotels or meals at restaurants (at restaurants normally choose from the offered menu), clients will have the chance to taste various Spanish delicacies.

Dinner on the arrival day is at approximately 9:00pm.
Breakfast on the last day is at approximately 9:00am.

Dietary Restrictions
We can cater to all dietary restrictions such as vegan, gluten, and lactose-free food. Please inform us with your booking if you have special diet requirements!

This trip includes some wine with dinner and can accommodate special dietary requests.
