Location overview

Go horse riding at this unique trekking centre based in the heart of Andalucia, Spain. The stables are situated on a small plateau, 1200 metres above the spa town Lanjaron in the Alpujarra region of Andalucia, close to Granada where the waters here are said to contain minerals for eternal youth. The Alpujarra hills and Sierra Nevada mountains are right on the doorstep and offer wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and the coastline of Africa on a clear day.
