What you'll do

Spend 3 nights in the spa town of Lanjaron near Granada and enjoy 2 full days trekking on horseback through the stunning Sierra Nevada Mountains, to enjoy some of the best horse riding Spain has to offer!

Take advantage of the incredible surroundings of the Alpujarra hills and Sierra Nevada Mountains on this great horse riding holiday in Spain.  Stay for 4 nights and enjoy 3 full days trekking in the area.

Your base either be a Spanish farmhouse near the spa town of Lanjaron or a friendly local Hotel with the town. People are drawn by the fresh air, the natural environment and the magnificent Sierra Nevada Mountains and indeed flock from afar to sample the water which is said to contain minerals for eternal youth and which is bottled and sold throughout Spain!

This fun horse riding holiday in Spain will take you out on treks to enjoy a wide choice of easy hacks right through to challenging trail rides in this spectacular area of Southern Spain.

With the stables situated 1023 metres above the wonderful town of Lanjaron, during your treks you will see some of the most incredible views of the surrounding Andalucían countryside, with the coastline of Africa visible on very clear days.

You will follow old Moorish mule paths and valleys where the horse, mule or oxen still to this day pull the plough to harvest the earth’s crops. This horse riding holiday is more than just a horse riding holiday, but a chance to discover the remarkable Andalucían scenery and to immerse yourself in the culture where even today, tradition remains very much part of everyday life.
