Tour Description: 

Tour leaves Barcelona at 9AM (weekdays) 8AM (weekends) in a 4wheel 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 us prepare the horses (brush and saddle up your horse) ride in the horse arena (for about 30minutes), 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 1,5h 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!

Moreover, you will have a few time to see the horse riding place and the outstanding views of Barcelona before going to the wineyards.

The day continues with a visit of a family owned winery, where you will discover the impressive underground cellars while the owner of the winery explains 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, savouring 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).

We return to Barcelona, arriving at 18:30 aprox.

    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 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!

    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 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 🙂

    Our personal guide was delightful. . My family was treated royally. They learned the history of the Spanish horse he was to ride, took part in preparing for the experience by grooming the horse and fitting saddle to horse. The instructor prepared them by training in the “ring”. Then they went on the riding tour. They were tired and hungry when they returned to the stable area where the option of cooling down the horse was available. Then we were treated to a delightful light lunch by the guide from “Living It”. The pictures the guide and the instructor took were edited and sent directly to my daughter in Utah. After the delicious lunch, we went to a family own winery in Penedes, the place was so amazing and the wine so good that we spend more than 50€ in that amazing wine.
    I understand few people take advantage of this opportunity. More should. The personal attention and instruction are amazing. The location is awesome. We learned a lot about the riding school as well and the winery.
    Our tour guide Alex was friendly the hole day.

    I highly recommeded this experience
