What to expect on the trail riding holidays
In Serra da Grandola you can experience a landscape and way of life that has remained largely untouched for centuries and feel a million miles from the concerns of day-to-day life!
The stables are located only 15 km from the golden, sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. They form part of a quinta (farming estate) that has been in the family since the 17th century so you can rest assured your hosts know the area well!
All the riding tours have been carefully planned to show you the best of this region. Each day you will get to explore a different trail. Some of the rides will take you up into the hills and forests of scented eucalyptus or pine or where the famous, ancient cork trees create a landscape which is at once uniquely Portuguese and timeless. On other days you will have the chance to ride on the beach or the by the gorgeous Melides coastal lagoon. On the week long holiday one of the most special moments is our sunrise ride along the dunes with just the sound of hoof beats and the ocean beyond.
All the routes can be adapted to your riding skills. The horses are well trained, steady and calm so you don’t have to be the world’s greatest rider to come but if you are then there are also lots of opportunities for canters!
Come and explore the Serra da Grandola on horseback – you won’t regret it!
