Costa Brava Beach & Discovery Ride

The Costa Brava Beach & Discovery Ride is a two centre ride where you stay three nights in the hills of Catalonia at either the horse’s base at Mas Alba (www.masalba.com) or at the lovely country hotel La Palma, followed by three nights near the seaside at Mas del Joncar (or similar). This ride is ideal for those who prefer not to move on each night.

The five riding days include one circular day ride from the inland base, then two days riding to the beach, a day riding on the beach and a full day riding back to the horse base by a different route. Although the horses may stay out, you return to either the inland or seaside accommodation.

You should be at least an intermediate rider fit enough for between 3 to 5 hours in the saddle each day. The total distance ridden is about 160 km/100 miles.

You ride across the very easternmost part of Spain, crossing green hilly landscapes, through medieval towns and onto the beaches of the Mediterranean.

Please note that between June and September (inclusive) we do not ride close to the ocean’s edge due to the number of people on the beach. Instead we may ride in the sand dunes and paths beside the beach in sight of the water.
Highlights of the trail include:

  • Some faster riding through beautiful countryside
  • Riding through interesting old villages and with the superb views of the Pyrenees in the distance
  • A beach ride
  • Opportunity to ride around a race track

The following is the proposed itinerary but please note that changes are possible due to weather and local conditions. The itinerary may run in reverse.

Day One

You are collected in Barcelona (5pm) or Girona (6.30pm) and transferred to the family-run horse riding farm Mas Alba or to the pretty country hotel La Palma. Both country houses date back to the 16th century and each has comfortable bedrooms with private bathrooms. Either make a wonderful base for the next three nights. Overnight Mas Alba or La Palma, (or at another similar guesthouse).

Day Two

Secluded paths run through the foothills of the Pyrenees surrounded by deep pine and stone oak forests and in between fertile farmland. Your first ride takes you into a quiet remote area, home to numerous birds of prey. After a beautiful canter you reach Galliners and Orfes, two villages built from natural stone dating from the middle ages.

Later you discover a refreshing pool with a waterfall. Bamboo, lianas and creepers grow rampant in this humid area and its peaceful sounds might make you think of tropical «Costa Rica»! After a delicious picnic you ride back to the country house for overnight. Overnight Mas Alba or La Palma (or at another similar guesthouse).

Day Three

Race Day! Today you ride through the forests of the old Emporda, and eventually the race track comes into view. Here under the trees you have time to take off your saddle bags and shorten your stirrups (anyone not wishing to join the race can find a shady viewing spot and take photos). The horses are thrilled to have the opportunity to gallop and after a quick circuit around the race track you will cross the finish line. Laughing and getting your breath back, you will tie your horses up, leaving them to relax whilst you go to the nearby village plaza restaurant for lunch and to toast the winner. Lunch today is to your own account.

Follow the river Fluvia in the afternoon and arrive at a local farm where the horses stay overnight and you return to your accommodation. Overnight Mas Alba or La Palma (or at another similar guesthouse).

Day Four

This morning you ride through meadows, farms, through Continental dunes and majestic pine forests, you ride on sandy trails before reaching your picnic spot. You have a breathtaking view of the sea and the protected island group of Islas Medes. After lunch, you can have long trots and canters along the river Ter and after a long and exciting day you arrive at the sea.

There may be time for a refreshing bathe in the sea before dinner. For the next three nights you normally stay at Mas del Joncar near to the beach (c.20 minute walk along a river) but occasionally another guesthouse of a similar standard is used.

Day Five

Awake to the sounds of the waves. Smell the coast, the wind and the salty air – you are right at the sea with your horses. You will want to enjoy the beach ride before the crowds and so it is an early start so that you are on the beach by 6am.

As the sun rises, ride along the water’s edge; your horses playing with the waves – they love the refreshing water.
Please note that the speed on the beach depends on the rivers, weather, sea, sand and waves and the pace is always with the best interests of the group in mind. It isn’t always possible to gallop along the water’s edge. From the beach you turn inland and crossing the rice fields, you ride back to the guesthouse.

Lunch today is to your own account and this afternoon is at your own leisure.

Day Six

Your final day’s ride is into the countryside on the banks of the river Ter. The soft sand and the shades of the poplar forests invite you to take long trots and canters. The route is flat until you discover a romantic chapel on a hill with fantastic views of the Pyrenees. Here you have a picnic and a siesta and then strengthened and rested you ride into a soft rolling hilly landscape of fields, forests and beautiful villages as you make your way back to the horse riding farm of Mas Alba.

Say goodbye to your horses and then you are taken back to the guesthouse on the coast for your final night.

Day Seven

After breakfast you are transferred to Barcelona or Girona or you might choose to join another trail.

Gourmet Coast Trail

Allow yourself some pamper time after adventurous days with beach rides. Let your muscles relax with a relieving massage. Horse riding, wellness treats and gourmet cuisine at its best.

You should be at least an intermediate rider fit enough for between 3 to 5 hours in the saddle each day. The total distance ridden is about 140 km/87 miles.

Please note that between June and September (inclusive) we do not ride close to the ocean’s edge due to the number of people on the beach. Instead we may ride in the sand dunes and paths beside the beach in sight of the water.

You ride across the very eastern most part of Spain, crossing green hilly landscapes, through medieval towns and onto the beaches of the Mediterranean.

Highlights of the trail include:

* Typical Catalan breakfast, daily gourmet menus with local specialties

* Delicious wines of the region

* A beach ride

* Breathtaking landscapes

* Wellness Treats (Massage, Spa) – payable locally

The following is the proposed itinerary but please note that changes are possible due to weather and local conditions. On occasions the itinerary may run in reverse.

Day One

You are collected in Barcelona (5pm) or Girona (6.30pm) and transferred to Mas Roca. Host Bogi welcomes you to his home, an old mill from the 16th century which will enchant you with its unique character. (Please note that the usual accommodation is at Bogi’s, but occasionally another guesthouse of a similar standard is used.) Meet your guide and your gourmet cook David, who during the week ahead will inspire you with the traditional cuisine of the Empordá region.

Delicious dishes of lamb, goat or beef are part of David’s repertoire, as well as sole, gilthead and prawn. You will get to know and enjoy tapas and paellas. The tasty olive oil of the region will be part of your daily dishes, as well as homemade cheese specialties.

Day Two

You are transferred to the horse ranch Mas Alba to meet your horse for the week. Your first riding day leads you away from Mas Alba, through forests of pine and oak. In a hidden valley you pass a small creek. Sunbeams break through the deep green of a tropical forest. Shrubs of bamboo line the path and lianas and climbers surround the trees above. You are in Catalonia but it feels like Costa Rica.

At the flood plains of the river Fluvia, your chef awaits with a glass of sparkling Catalan Cava for you to enjoy while admiring the delightfully set table full of delicacies. Ingredients such as fresh bread, Manchego, homemade goat’s cheese and fruits such as figs, peaches and cherries make this a perfect lunch.

In the afternoon you continue on to ride to Bogi’s place (or alternative guesthouse), where you spend a second night. The garden with its South American feel is a beautiful spot to relax! And, of course, another Gourmet dinner is waiting for you.

Day Three

In the morning you ride alongside the river Fluvia that winds through the countryside and follow it towards the Gulf of Roses where the river flows into the Ocean. Stop at lunchtime for a delicious picnic set out under old cork trees. What a great place to enjoy local delicacies! With renewed energy you mount your horses once again. Amid paddy fields you reach your accommodation for the night: Usually you will overnight at Catalonia’s oldest P.R.E. (Pura Rasa Espanola) Andalusian horse stud. Please note that the accommodation is basic at the stud and that bathrooms may be shared and not en-suite.

It is a treat to see the beautiful horses of the stud and the guesthouse is perfect for relaxing after a day’s riding. In this wonderful atmosphere you are spoiled with delicious paella with seafood and fresh vegetables.

Day Four

In the summer months and busy holiday times, you will need to be up early to ride onto the beach by 6am (in spring/autumn it doesn’t need to be so early). Soon everyone is awake as the water splashes, the sand leaps and you gallop into the sunrise. The horses play in the waves and you try not to get too wet.

Please note that the speed on the beach depends on the rivers, weather, sea, sand and waves and the pace is always with the best interests of the group in mind. It isn’t always possible to canter or gallop along the water’s edge.

After this great experience you enjoy a gourmet picnic in the garden of the P.R.E Andalusian horse stud. You have a great view of the gorgeous Andalusian horses, grazing on the luscious green grass.

After lunch, those who want to can enjoy some relaxation with a massage from professional masseuse Cerrie Reina who is a qualified therapist for Tien Chen. Tien Chen Shiatsu is a Chinese art and has been practised there for thousands of years. Its physical effects include relaxing muscles, stimulating circulation and releasing toxins and tensions. A treatment can also be helpful in alleviating conditions such as migraines and stress. On a more subtle level, the treatment allows the patient to become deeply relaxed with a feeling of calmness and well being. Give it a try – (payable locally).

Later you will be shown around at the stud and get to know the history of the P.R.E. Andalusian horse. There is plenty of time to look around and relax. You spend another evening at the noble stud and discuss the memories of the day while being served another wonderful gourmet dinner! What flavour experience is waiting for you today? Will David conjure up something with Boletus and Chanterelle, or create a dish with wild boar or deer? Let yourself be surprised!

Day Five

The terrain is flat this morning giving opportunities for some faster riding as you journey to Castelló with its impressive cathedral. From there you ride onto the marshes of Aiguamolls which is a refuge and hatchery to many birds. Crossing grazing land, you can pick up the pace again as you ride past fields of vines and sunflowers on your way to Perelada.

Arrive at this evening’s accommodation where you spend the night. Have a picnic and later if time permits, visit the glorious castle and its Bodega. Learn about Cava and have a cava tasting. Salud!

It is possible to arrange a Spa and Wellness treatment at the golf hotel in Perelada. Their specialities are treatments with wine, whether a body peel, a massage or a beauty treatment: wine can be used in several ways to refresh your body. If you like more «classical» treatments, there are many offers to choose from! After another eventful day, David is waiting for you with a terrific meal sweetened by tasty almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts of the region – what a great way to end a perfect day!

Day Six

The flood plains of the River Llobregat are not only home to a variety of flowers, mushrooms like Chanterelle, Boletus and Borel also grow here very well. Your picnic break today includes visiting a bodega. During the wine tasting you get to know the grapes of the region and learn a little more about how their delicious taste ripens/develops.

After this tasty and interesting break you mount your horse again. Pass intricate stone terraces and age-old olive trees. This is where the regional olive oil comes from, which plays an important role in the Catalan cuisine. You arrive at the lovely village Gariguella, where you overnight. Perhaps a massage is in order today (payable locally). For dinner David creates another great menu. This time – of course – with the special olive oil and honey from the village!

Day Seven

Age-old olive trees and vineyards influence the landscape this morning as you ride closer to the coastal mountains of Rodas. The light in this wild and fascinating landscape is impressive. Admire the proud formations of the Pyrenees’ summits and the deep blue colour of the Mediterranean Sea. Your Andalusian horses climb the mountains brilliantly.

In the afternoon you get to a picturesque bay on the «Wild Coast» where a mouth-watering picnic is waiting for you on the beach. In the evening, return to your accommodation. For your last dinner David has come up with a very special menu that you won’t forget in a hurry!
