What you can expect
Tour leaves Barcelona at 9AM (weekdays) 8AM (weekends) in a van with full air conditioning, and heads straight to a Natural Park where the equestrian center is located.
After preparing the horses (brush and saddle up) ride in the horse arena (for 30min), while your instructor 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 have the opportunity to learn how to take care of the horses. 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 experience!
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 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, savoring 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).
