- 4.5-hour horseback riding tour from Barcelona in the Serralada Litoral National Park
- Ride a friendly horse that is suited to your ability and confidence
- Follow your guide along horseback-riding trails in the heart of the forest
- Finish your ride with a light lunch back at the stables in Orrius
- Round-trip transport from Barcelona to Orrius by air-conditioned minibus
When you reach the stables, your guide will give you a quick safety briefing and show you how to put on your riding hat, before helping you into the saddle for a practice session around the riding arena and show you basic command such as walk and halt. Every effort will be made to ensure that you’re well matched to your horse, with novice riders given the gentlest ones.
Setting off at a leisurely pace, follow your guide on horseback along secluded roads to the incredible Serralada Litoral Natural Park. Here, you’ll ride through the Catalan countryside typified by leafy forests, lush pine groves and rolling hills. Your guide’s expert knowledge of the local terrain means that you’ll be taken on the best trails to suit your ability.
While this riding tour is aimed at novice- to intermediate-level riders, should you be more advanced, your guide will give you the opportunity to trot or canter through this gorgeous countryside. After roughly 1.5 hours of riding, return to the stables and help the groom unsaddle your horse.
Before returning to Barcelona, sit down and relax with the rest of your group to enjoy a light lunch of bread, Spanish omelet and cheeses, while sharing tales of your unforgettable horseback adventure in Spain.

Had a fantastic time. Met by Barbara who took me on a leisurely drive into the Natural Park. I was the only booking that day and it was most rewarding for me. We arrived at the the riding school and stables and met with my riding guide, Clara. I was given a tour of the stables and an explanation of the activities they provide there. Then off to meet my horse, brushed, saddled and walked him to an arena for some lessons in riding skills. Then into the Natural Park for a pleasurable ride. Clara had wonderful knowledge of the types of trees growing and other vegetation. The ride also had amazing views over Barcelona. The ride itself is pleasant, fun and my horse was very well behaved. When arriving back at the stables, unsaddling of the horse, a treat for the horse and a hosing down to cool off, followed by a lovely Catalan style lunch. Thanks for a wonderful day.

This was an awesome day - we got picked up from central Barcelona and driven out into the country. We got to brush the horses and saddle them up, had a quick lesson in the arena then off out up hills to the most amazing views of Barcelona. This is an experience not to be missed. Lovely gentle ride, lovely girls that took us, and when we got back a real Catalonian lunch, complete with red wine in the sun! Lots of fun. And so different from the usual touristy-tours.
