Spain - Catalan Coastal Trails

These rides explore the real Costa Brava (which means Wild Coast), a diverse region of extraordinary natural beauty and heritage. Medieval fishing villages dot the wild coastline where secluded, rocky coves sheltered by pine covered hills alternate with long sandy beaches.

Highlights of the trips include rides through charming unspoilt villages, long canters through coastal wilderness and beach rides at the crack of dawn. All this is set against the beautiful backdrop of the Pyrenees.

You stay overnight in carefully chosen country guesthouses, pensions and small family-run hotels where your hosts spoil you with delicious Catalan and Spanish food.

These trails will have a lot of riding hours in the saddle each day, often not reaching your guest house until early evening.

It's easy to see why this area was a home to of some of Spain's greatest 20th century artists including Gaudi, Dali and Picasso. There are a number of different riding routes, some of which include visits to Dali's home and it's worth extending your stay to take in Gaudi's distinctive architecture and the Picasso museum in Barcelona.

Please note that the Pirate Trail is the most challenging of these itineraries and you are required to get off and lead your horse most days, sometimes for 30 minutes at a time. The ground can be rocky and uneven and the hiking will be both uphill and downhill. We therefore recommend that you ride in shoes that provide ankle support , non-slip soles that you can comfortably walk in.

Fantastic scenery on forward going horses, with great Spanish food along the way.

My top tip:

Your luggage is moved on for you each day, but you will have to take it to and from your bedroom so do try and pack as lightly as possible. The airline may also have a low weight limit.
