You will be asked to specify your riding experience, weight and height when booking. The average riding time per day is 6 hours.

The diversity of bridle-paths and forest tracks allows you three days to explore many of the more inaccessible ravines and valleys of this mountainous region. From the high summer pastures and streams fed by the snow melt of the Mulhacen, down to the white-washed villages of the valleys. The routes are so planned that you ride over totally different terrain each day. One day you follow small paths high into the mountains, with spectacular views on a clear day of the Mediterranean. On other days you will take slightly lower routes where the many forest tracks allow for a faster pace.
