    Do something different this holiday and enjoy a pleasant horse riding experience in the beautiful Gran Canaria region. Ride your horse through the valleys of Gran Canaria, taking in the varied landscape and lush scenery.

    Enjoy the most beautiful mountains with fascinating views of the extensive beach of Playa del Inglés with its dunes. Ride though picturesque cactus fields and volcanic landscapes on paths that can only be conquered by horse back.

    Beginners need not fear as the rides are very easy and not strenuous. The good weather of the island makes horse riding a very popular sport here. The combined experience of riding a horse and the marvellous scenery make for a truly delightful experience!

    Your coach will take you to the horse ranch amid rolling hills. Upon arrival, meet your guide and saddle up before heading out to explore the surrounding countryside.
