Full description
Pull on your riding boots for this 5-hour adventure on horseback in the mountains just outside of Barcelona, and see breathtaking Catalan countryside from the back of a graceful Spanish horse.

Upon arrival at the equestrian center, watch the horses being prepared, before taking a short ride in the arena to familiarize yourself with your animal. Ponies are provided for the kids, and an experienced riding instructor will give clear instructions in Spanish and English for those with little or no riding experience.

Then, head for the hills of the Nature Park on horseback, riding through shady woods of pine and oak trees. Listen to the sing-song of wild birds and uncover the secrets of the outback. See towering mountain peaks on a 1.5-2-hour ride, tailored to your skill level. The little ones will be given plenty of time to build a relationship with their ponies, and learn how to take care of them after an energetic walk.

End your adventure with a delicious snack of Catalan breads and traditional Spanish omelet, before your return to Barcelona for around 1:30 PM.
