Travel just 30 minutes outside of the buzzing city of Barcelona and visitors will find themselves in the gorgeous rolling countryside of Catalunya, the perfect location for horse riding in beautiful hills.Winding paths and coastal mountains provide the exciting backdrop for an escape from the city bustle; going on a trek is an ideal way to get away from it all and to appreciate the scenery around you.Various companies operating out of Barcelona organise horse-riding treks and they cater for all levels of experience, including complete beginners.
The duration and difficulty are based on previous experience but most are flexible, offering anything from a couple of hours to a full day out.Spanish Trails, for example, offer day long treks which also include lunch or dinner at a typical country restaurant.It’s a great way to see the Catalan countryside whilst exercising and having fun at the same time!
