Description

The tour leaves Barcelona at 09:00 (weekdays) and 08:00 (weekends) in a 4-wheel drive car with full air conditioning, and heads straight up to a Natural Park close to Barcelona, where the equestrian center is located. After helping prepare the horses (brush and saddle up your horse), you will ride in the horse arena (for about 30 minutes), while your experienced guide gives you some tips and a technical explanation. Later on, enjoy a scenic, leisurely, guided tour on horseback through various trails inside the woods of the Natural Park. The ranch is surrounded by a large extension of woods and mountains. After the 1.5 hour adventure in the forest, you will have the opportunity to learn how to take care of the horses after the energetic walk. The morning finishes with a nutritious snack in the ranch. Be ready to enjoy a Catalan and Spanish lunch, while sharing tales of your unforgettable horseback riding experience. The day continues with a visit to a family owned winery, where you'll discover the impressive underground cellars, while the owner of the winery explains to you how the famous wine and cava (local champagne) are produced, from the first pressing of the grapes to the fermentation in the cellars. After touring the vineyards and cellars, take part in a wine and cava tasting session, savoring the exquisite notes of the local champagne and wine. This will let you see exactly why wines and cavas have acquired such international fame. The tasting is accompanied by the chance to sample locally grown products (Catalan fuet, extra virgin olive oil and delicious cheese). You will return to Barcelona, arriving at approximately 18:30.
