You will be picked up at your hotel or B&B in Granada and taken on a short drive to the stables just outside of Granada where you will be greeted by your guide for this enchanting journey to Laguna de Apoyo. Along the trail you will pass through pastures, farms and villages before arriving to the rim of this beautiful volcanic lake where you will have time to take in the stunning scenery while the horses rest and feed on the wild grasses.
The 1.5 hour tour takes you past an organic farm, pastures and villages.
Prior to the ride, we will introduce you to the horses that we will be using on the tour, tack-up and answer any questions that you may have. You will be able to tour the stables to see that we are dedicated to providing a caring and rewarding environment for our horses. If it is your first time on horseback, these well cared for horses will make you feel like a skillful rider. If you are an experienced rider, you will appreciate how well cared for, fit and responsive the horses are.
Tours are small groups of no more than 8 people (two person minimum) and include, water, trail guide and fun in the saddle.
Even though these are some of the largest horses in the area there is a strict weight limit of 210 lbs. to protect the horses as they cannot safely, or comfortably, carry more than 20% of their body weight including the saddle.
Wear hiking or closed toe shoes (without heels), long pants, and hat. Bring water, sun protection, insect repellent, and snacks.
*Please Note: All riders must be under 210 lbs. Children 12 and over are welcome. Tack and helmets are provided. Horses are tacked-up while you sign waivers. You are may be subject to waiting up to 15 minutes for the group to leave on the ride.
