    A weekend break away

    The weekend rides in the mountains and the valleys of Gredos are a great introduction to this very little-known part of Spain. Depending on the time of the year, the rides will be adapted to make the most out of the days riding. The days stretch and you will feel you have had a week holiday after a couple of days riding in these great landscapes. These rides can be customized for families and small groups’ requests, a birthday, or a special event celebration.
    Gredos one of the best kept secrets of Spain.

    What our guests say

    Gredos Escapes 1

    “Taking up the Reins in Spain. You don’t need to go as far as Africa or India for an exotic riding experience – Spain’s unspoilt Gredos mountains are only a weekend break away as RU (Country Life Travel) discovered, with eagle sightings, river swimming and vampire dogs. (…) The rivers were perfect, their smooth boulders created perfect swimming pools of gin-clear water, welcoming hollows for a siesta, and mini waterfalls for natural hydrotherapy massages. Well off the foreign tourist trail, the Gredos are a well-kept secret. At the end of it all, 8 year-old son wished he could take his horse home in a 15hh suitcase and well-travelled 10 year old daughter, confided: I think that`s the best holiday I’ve ever had. Older seasoned travellers in the party found in difficult to disagree”.

    "When filling in those forms it always looks a bit creepy when only the Excellent box is ticked, but I really thought, as did all our team, that the three days could not have been bettered. The horses were terrific and the riding was really good fun. The setting there is amazing and each day was different and perfect. As people that hunt we are used to bombing around like lunatics and there was a worry that it would all be a little tame, but it was terrific in every way. The walking through glorious country, the stopping and swimming and eating - all fantastic - truly. So thank you".

    "Landscape, rivers, mountains, getting away from it all. Forward going well behaved horses. Size of the group was excellent. Standard of riding was good all round, which made it easy to relax. Maria Elena is a wonderful guide, so experienced (with brilliant English). Her calm and positive approach made for an excellent holiday. Her longstanding association with the area and affection for it was clear. So glad I went!

    My fifth visit! The Gredos is a wonderful place to ride - stunning scenery, lovely horses, great riding - and the food and drink is pretty good too! So why go anywhere else?
