Segovia Horseback Ride & City Tour

What You'll Do

Ride a horse through the beautiful valleys surrounding Segovia, after a fascinating walking tour that digs beneath the surface of this incredible ancient city.

On this 8-hour tour, the first stop of the day will be in the city of Segovia, where you will begin your walking tour of the city with your local guide. We’ll explore Segovia’s historic centre, scattered with ancient ruins and incredible cathedrals, and discover why this city was proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage site.

We will stroll through the city’s beautiful main square – Plaza Mayor, and gaze in awe at monuments such as a stunningly preserved Roman aqueduct and Spain’s first Gothic cathedral. We will also take a look around the former royal palace and fortress – the iconic Alcázar Real.

After the tour, we’ll embark on an exciting 1.5-hour journey on horseback through the valleys of the city, which provide you with stunning views of Segovia. This is a totally unique way to discover this incredibly beautiful city, as you take in the views of dreamy spires and looming towers dominating the hillside.

You’ll learn how to communicate with your horse, some of the basic practices of horse care, and practice your horseback-riding skills while reveling in the freedom and tranquillity of the countryside. Under the supervision of our guides, the route is suitable for anyone, from first-time rider to expert.

Discover the spectacular views created by the city’s two rivers – the Eresma and the Clamores – and enjoy the ride and the amazing views of the Alcázar Real, the castle that was used as the inspiration for Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, and reconstructed in Disneyland.

At the end of your tour you will return to the centre of Madrid in a comfortable minibus, where your guide will be able to recommend things to do during the rest of your stay.

 

PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE PREMIUM SMALL GROUP TOURS. PRIVATE TOURS CAN BE ACCOMMODATED ON REQUEST.

Ignasi Zarzoso

When it comes to travel and favourite places, his philosophy is 'it’s not about the place, it’s about the experience'. Ignasi does have a few favourite places though... one being his hometown of Barcelona. He has fond memories of Barcelona and would encourage anyone who visits to get lost walking in the streets - definitely the best way to discover the city. His other favourite place is Sri Lanka, having visited recently and loving that parts of the island are still virgin to mass tourism. Ignasi and his fabulous team make sure to only offer tours in small groups so that everyone’s experience is more personal. They don’t use umbrellas or microphones but instead make sure that they get to know the guests and show them the way of the local - not just the main tourist attractions. They also strive to do things differently by using more exciting ways to explore like using premium electric bikes or even offering helicopter and hot air balloon rides. The team are experienced local advisors -not large corporate tour operators. They can't wait for you to experience their city with them from a local perspective!
