Ride through stunning equestrian trails on our Tabernas Desert Horse Riding Tour. You'll trot through one of Almería's most breathtaking areas, and the most arid landscape in Europe.
Tabernas Desert Horse Riding Tour
To begin our activity, we'll meet at the ranch. This spot can be easily accessed by following the asphalt road that starts at the Visitor Centre on Calle Alcazaba in Tabernas.
Once both riders and horses are ready, we'll start our horseback ride through the Tabernas Desert along the Owl Valley path. During this 3.7 mile (6 km) route, we'll pass through the Benavides Wadi and many other symbolic places in this arid setting.
As we ride, we'll tell you about some of the TV series and films shot in the Tabernas Desert, including Game of Thrones, Indiana Jones, Exodus and many other Hollywood blockbusters. The European Film Academy has declared this place a Treasure of European Film Culture due to its fame in the Seventh Art.
In addition, we'll discuss the history and geology of the Tabernas Desert. The landscapes of this Protected Natural Area, unique in Spain, cover an area of 110 square miles (280 square km). Many animals and plants also live here as, even though it may seem strange to us, they have adapted to this arid terrain and now thrive in this habitat. When we see these species, we'll make sure to point them out so you can take a look.
We'll finish our 2 hour horse riding tour upon our return to the ranch where we began.
