This ride is on the east coast of the island of Mallorca, considered to be the jewel of the Mediterranean islands. Located just east of the Spanish mainland, Mallorca is an island of 120 beaches, swaying palm trees and white sand. However, Mallorca's diversity is rich - many wonderful villages, church towers and windmills dotting the landscape, fields of fruit trees, plains and mountains. Here time seems to stand still and people are very friendly. Over the centuries, the Romans, Moors and Spanish have all left their mark on the island. This is reflected in all aspects of life on the island including the music, the language and the food. Catalan cuisine reflects the history of the island; olives from the Romans, almonds and oranges from the Moors, peppers and tomatoes from the Spanish, and always fresh seafood.
The week includes instructions on quality Andalusian horses combined with excellent trail rides across wide open beaches and on sandy forest trails of the Nature park of Llevant. One of the highlights of this horseback riding tour is a visit to an ancient fortress high on a hill, with a commanding view of the landscape - Fort Castillo de Santueri.

Day 1 (Monday): Arrival in Palma de Mallorca and transfer to the equestrian estate. The estate finca is a typical family farm situated in the Levante Hills. Here you will be surrounded by its idyllic natural beauty, a lovely Finca with fruit orchards and their own winery and a small spa facility. What a beautiful place to start your holidays. (no riding and no lunch included today - but can be paid for locally)
Day 2: After breakfast you will leave the ranch with your guide with car (45 /50 min) to go to the north of the island. You will ride through the natural Parc “Son Reial” . This is a wonderful area in the north-east from Mallorca, full of pines and sand tracks. At lunch time, while the horses are relaxing, you will have Picnic lunch at the seaside. After the special lunch, you will continue your ride through the pine forest and relaxing sand dunes to finish your adventure at Son Serra. Return to the finca to take a shower and enjoy a marvellous barbeque dinner between 7 and 9 PM.
Day 3: After breakfast you´ll leave with your guide to the Natural Park in Cala Mondragó and S´Amarador, where you will enjoy a very nice beach with marevellous views. You´ll have a picnic lunch at the seaside. In the afternoon you ride back to the estate for dinner and overnight.
Day 4: Today you will have some options.
a) Sightseeing: In the morning we will take you to Palma de Mallorca on a sightseeing tour of this historic town with its famous cathedral and the gardens of "es Palau de L'Almudaina" - of course leaving some free time for shopping. Return to the estate around 6 PM just in time for dinner.
b) Alternatively you can opt for more riding. Riders get together in the morning in the arena for a group lesson. If you are keen on more instructions - we can arrange them for you (group or private) or you can take a bike and go for a ride to explore the countryside before lunch. In the afternoon we go for a short trail ride, leaving enough time for relaxation at the pool, make an appointment for a massage, spend some time in the spa or rent a car and sightsee in the historic area and countryside (massage, spa or rental car are not included).
Day 5: Leaving with your guide you will make your way to Cala Mesquida and ride on to the “Ermita de Betlen”, a delightful little old monastery. As you continue to ride in the direction of the “Finca d ́Aubarca” you will see the fabulous scenery of the Alcudia bay and pass the “Torre des Matzoc”, an old tower dated from 1741. From this tower you can see the entire Llevant coast. You can be sure you will never forget the spectacular views. You will continue your ride visiting some calas with a perfectly blue sea and have a picnic lunch on one of the beaches. You will return to Cala Mesquida and then back to the finca.
Day 6: Today, your six mile trail ride will wind you through some of the most beautiful terrain Mallorca has to offer which finishes on the top of a hill at the famous castle “Castillo de Santueri”. Here you will see almond and carob trees and the village below. It is commonly believed to have been built by the Muslims in the 14th century and was the scene of many battles as it offered control of the whole area. After your lunch in “Can Raull” (mallorquin meals), on your return, you will see typical rural houses and fruit-bearing trees. This evening you will have a barbeque farewell dinner and a chance to talk about the weeks’ adventures with your new found riding companions.
Day 7: Breakfast and transfer to the Airport taking with you, your unforgettable memories of your stay.
