A day in the Mountain

If you’re already an experienced rider you can join us for a one day Peneda Geres horse riding tour. The ride leaves in the morning for the Castro Laboreiro plateau, passing the herds of Garrano wild horses, following the traces left by wolves, learning how they live and how we can identify the signs of their presence. With the largest concentration of megalithic monuments in the Iberian Peninsula, the ride to the plateau of Castro Laboreiro is rich with natural and historic interest. Lunch is a picnic of tasty local products.
