Classic Trails

This region´s dramatic landscape with its breathtaking panoramic views provides a wide range of routes for the adventurous spirit.

Some of the best known routes are as follows:

Route 1

Climbing up to the heights of the Sierra Nevada from the villages of the Alpujarras on the south-facing slopes is an exhilirating experience. There is a wonderful contrast between the warm valleys and cool summits of these impressive mountains.

Route 2

The wild and unspoiled white sandy beaches of the Costa de la Luz which run from Tarifa (Southern-most tip of Andalucia) to Cadiz along the south coast offer plenty of scope for galloping on a deserted beach or riding through the dunes.



Route 3

If it´s an authentic cowboy experience you´re looking for, exploring the old Western Film Sets of the arid deserts of Almeria might just be the answer!

Route 4

Following the old smugglers trails through the cork woods as you wind your way through the hills which lead to Ronda, is a firm favorite with riders of all ages and abilities.

A girl a horse and a dog

Belinda Braithwaite, in her bestselling book "A Girl and a Horse and a Dog", describes her adventures as she rode her Andalucian horse, Dragon, 1700 miles from Sotogrande to Paris. The book includes a moving description of a bullfight in Ronda. Dragon lived  in the stables at El Aguilon in Tarifa  where he sadly died at the grand old age of 24 in 2006.
