Sierra Nevada Rides
Southern Spain Spain
Without doubt, the Sierra Nevada-Tabernas Desert Route, with 6 days on horseback, is one of our most varied programs. It goes through two Nature Reserves of unique natural beauty which give the route its name: The Sierra Nevada, with its snowy peaks and mountainous landscape, and the Tabernas Desert, the most important desert-like zone in Europe.

The route starts high up in the Sierra and makes its way down to the fertile slopes and valleys where olives, ­almonds, and even wine are produced. Then, suddenly, the unique topographical conditions render the route into a true, western movie style desert, of canyons and dry riverbeds where numerous spaghetti-westerns films have been made. The expedition ends in Granada with the option to visit the Alhambra.
