Activity Overview
Trips start in Barcelona at 8 AM (weekends) and 9 AM (weekdays) in a 4wheel drive vehicle with full air conditioning and go straight to a Natural Park near to Barcelona, where you will find the equestrian center.

After aiding us to prepare the horses to ride in the horse field (for around 30 minutes), your knowledgeable guide will offer you some tips and a procedural elucidation.

Afterward, enjoy a picturesque, gentle, guided trip on horseback through different trails in the woods of the Natural Park. This ranch is bordered by a massive extension of mountains and woods.

After the one and half hour escapade in the forest, you will get the chance to learn how to care for the horses after the vigorous walk. The morning ends with a nourishing bite in the ranch. Be prepared to enjoy a Spanish and Catalan lunch, while sharing stories of your memorable horseback riding event.

Furthermore, you will get time to see the exceptional views of Barcelona and horse riding place before going to the wine yards.

The day goes on with an appointment of a family-owned winery, where you will learn about the remarkable underground cellars while the proprietor of the winery clarifies you how the famed wine and cava (area champagne) are formed, from the first pressing of grapes to fermentation in cellars.

After visiting the cellars and vineyards take part in a cava and wine-tasting session, enjoying the beautiful notes of the local wine and champagne. This will permit you to see precisely why cavas and wines and have acquired such global recognition. The tasting allows you to taste locally grown products.

We had six people on our tour and we were in a comfortable mini van. Our tour guide Barbara had an incredible wealth of knowledge on the history of the winery and the horses that we rode. She was a great guide and really made this tour the highlight of our time in Spain.We drank good wines, ate wonderful tapas, and had guides that were knowledgable, caring, and added a whole other level of fun and ... more laughter.About the ride on the morning, I have to say that was execellent, the horse are really well trained and look healthy. The ride was enjoyable and the winery wonderful. Nice tour

What a great, fun and different day! I highly recommend this tour as we could of not have enjoyed it more. The guide went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable and went above and beyond pointing our important sights during our drive to the horse stables. When we got to meet the horses, we were surprised to see how well taken care. They made us engage with them, brushing them and teaching us ... more of how to properly handle a horse and I loved it! After a great riding training, we enjoyed our ride through trails inside the woods and amazing views of the mountains and all Barcelona. We had some typical tasty Spanish food and headed to a typical family owned vineyard. I thought Id be husttle, but truth is we were never rushed and the ride there was smooth and very comforting. The wine was delicious and the people of the winery just as friendly as everyone else during the day. We really felt extremely taken care of and were so grateful for everyone being so nice, explanatory and patient with us answering any question, helping us with everything, sharing all their knowledge of the culture, our surroundings, the horses, the food and whatnot.We could of not have asked for a better experience and a better care! This is an experience well cherish for many years to come! Thank you!
