Riding along the small villages in the inland, across old trade routes, beautiful mountain trips and the typical “tapas” – where local people go out for a meal

Our Tapas Trail is made for all those who want to get in the “trail riding” enjoying changing landscapes on not too long riding days. So you have time to relax the afternoons. The first day you get used to your horse, the way of riding and the area. You will be impressed by the horses climbing in the mountains. The next day you can enjoy the sandy beaches at the Atlantic if you like so ( not included) – an unique experience! And on your third riding day you start on to the Tapas Trail where we show you Andalusia far away from any tourism visiting the local taps bars.

You cross mountains with amazing views over to the costs of Africa, come trough rivers in between plantations of oranges, lemons and olives, following old nearly forgotten paths from town to towns…

1. Day: Arrival in Malaga and transfer to the Rancho La Paz. After dinner presentation of the tour.
2. Day: After a pleasant breakfast, you will for the first time have the opportunity to get to know the horses and the way of riding. Two rides, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, of around two
hours give you the opportunity to become familiar with the terrain and especially with the surefootedness of the horses and their performance in cross-country rides. Lunch and dinner will
both be served at La Paz.
3. Day: For a lot of you a ride on the beach is a highlight and today you get the possibility to make it come true.. After breakfast you drive along the Costa del Sol, cross Marbella, Estepona, the historic rock of Gibraltar and by good weather enjoy fantastic
views over the coasts of Africa. You cross Tarifa where the Atlantic invites for rides on the sandy beach and in the shadow of pine trees or opened fields. Except during the summer months you will just cross some local fisher men and cows enjoying the warm sand. You can use the afternoon to enjoy a typical fish restaurant and visit Tarifa, the southernst point of Europe with the option of some wale watching.( the atlantic ride is not included and can be booked by side).
Or you use the day for some rides in the surrounds of the ranch. Dinner at the ranch.
4. Day – 7. Day: Starting at La Paz we are heading for our tapas trail to the river of Fuengirola. In winter and spring time it brings the water from the mountains down and the horses love to play in – in summer month it offers some nice canters. You will cross the backside of the Costa del Sol on small paths, under the shadwo of pines, with beautiful views over the coast and over to Africa. After the riding you prepare your horses which stay in stables and small fincas on the way. You will know the typical Spaish kitchen with its tapas.  Ventas are venues for the locals, not only to eat but also to socialize. The food is traditional and local, often the „moms“ and „grandmas“ are working at the stove.

Later on the dinner will always be served at La Paz where you will also stay overnight.

In the afternoons you have time for the siesta at the pool, a visit to the beach or to Mijas, the small white town next to the ranch.

8. Day: Transfer to the airport of Málaga and departure.
