Alpujarras Mountain Villages Ride

Alpujarras Mountain Villages Ride
Southern Spain Spain
This short mountain trail ride program will allow you to discover the Alpujarras region.

This area has a landscape of exceptional natural beauty. The varied topography provides the most surprising contrasts in scenery, from the snowy heights of the Sierra Nevada National Park, to the fertile valleys of olive and almond groves. On a clear day, one can even glimpse the Mediterranean Sea in the distance. 

Riding though several villages it seems like travelling in the Spain of the 19th Century, where time has stopped. The route generally follows old bridle paths which snake through numerous ravines where the snowmelt waters run.
