Full description

Unleash your inner cowboy on a guided horseback ride of the Tabernas Desert. Stop along the route to learn about the natural environment, nature, geology, history, and cinema. Meet your guide at the tourist office; they will then take you to the ranch. On arrival at the ranch, receive your helmet and body protector, and meet your horse.

If you're a beginner, enjoy a short training session to get to grips with animal-friendly horse riding. Then, everyone will set off on a tour tailored to the participants' level, supervised by an instructor. Follow the "Desierto de Ley" route for an introduction to the desert. Cross an open area of desert, 1 kilometer from Tabernas, with views of the mythical "Llano del Búho" and "La Tortuga". Ride through these unique landscapes and admire their geological formations.

See where hundreds of film and TV productions have been filmed, such as Indiana Jones, Game of Thrones, Exodus, The Sisters Brothers, and The Crown. Later, return to the ranch, where you will say goodbye to your horse.

Excellent! It was amazing! The guide not only knew Spanish, but spoke English and French very good too. He was very friendly and helpful, he explained and showed a lot to us, and even took our photos during the trip. The horses were well groomed and looked healthy, were gentle and even though I was really afraid, everything went well. 100% would repeat the experience.

Super nice guide! Small training on the property and then off to the desert. The guide explained a lot about the locations with a small photo album with scenes from films that were played there. Without having to ask, the guide offered to take pictures of us on the horses at all points where we stopped. A great atmosphere, amazing landscape - the price is more than fair! I can only recommend it to everyone, really great!

Super Tour und sehr netter Guide! Kurz vor unserer Abreise haben Sie uns unkompliziert noch einen Termin ermöglicht. Es wird auf Sicherheit geachtet, die Pferde werden gut versorgt und jeder erhält eine kurze Einweisung und die Pferde werden nach reiterlichem Können zugeteilt. Mein Freund hat keine Erfahrung mit Reiten und hatte ein super braves Pferd, das Ideal für ihn war. Es können dort Touren mit 2 Stunden oder für erfahrene Reiter auch mehrstündige Touren gebucht werden. Wir waren beide sehr begeistert und mein Freund möchte im nächsten Urlaub unbedingt nochmal mit mir Reiten gehen
