Experience the thrill of guided horseback riding, available to both hotel guests and non-guests. Tarifa, a haven for nature enthusiasts, offers an idyllic setting for unforgettable equestrian adventures. Conveniently nestled between two national parks—the renowned cork oak forests called ´los Alcornocales´ and the captivating Straits of Gibraltar—the region boasts diverse landscapes waiting to be explored. Unleash your adventurous spirit with captivating horseback rides that traverse the pristine beaches, wind through enchanting dunes, meander into the majestic mountains, and navigate the tranquil paths of coastal forests adorned with pine, eucalyptus, and corktree groves. Tarifa, as Europe's southernmost point, is blessed with a unique geographical position where the Mediterranean converges with the Atlantic. This convergence attracts an impressive array of migratory birds, granting us awe-inspiring views of their remarkable journeys. Moreover, the marine currents and distinct underwater topography of the Strait of Gibraltar attract up to six different species of whales and dolphins throughout the year, offering remarkable opportunities for observation. During your rides, you will be immersed in the breathtaking countryside of Tarifa, relishing aghast vistas of the beach and Africa. Discover the unparalleled joy of galloping along the intact shores of Tarifa's beaches—an experience that will leave an indelible mark on your memories. We offer a range of ride durations to accommodate all preferences, including one-hour rides, one-and-a-half-hour rides, and two-hour rides. Our diverse selection of horses caters to riders of all skill levels, ensuring a tailored experience for everyone. We offer separate rides for experienced riders and those with limited or no prior experience. For experienced riders, we also provide longer tours spanning three to five hours. To ensure your safety and comfort, our expert guides will provide instructions on horse management before setting off on your adventure. Rest assured, a knowledgeable guide will accompany you throughout the ride, prioritizing your well-being and that of our horses. Riding helmets, riding shoes/boots, and chaps for leg protection are provided for your convenience. HORSES: We take care of approximately fifteen reliable Andalusian horses—a breed known for its elegant appearance, brave nature, and forward-going yet surefooted characteristics. Andalusian horses possess a gentle temperament, embodying pride, honesty, intelligence, and a natural affinity for work. These remarkable creatures make for ideal companions on your equestrian journey. Rest assured that our horses enjoy a relaxed and contented life, as they reside outdoors in a herd, day and night.
