With an exceptional location, wonderful natural conditions and a warm climate all year, the Algarve combines all the elements ideal for horse-riding, be it in the horse-rink, or on agreeable rides which allow you to explore the more remote mountain areas, or perhaps enjoy an unforgettable sunset by the seashore.
There are a few equestrian centres and horse-rinks across the region. Paid for by the hour or by the day, horses can be hired for riding individually, in small groups or with an experienced guide.
Spending hours of pure relaxation with these most noble of animals is suitable for all ages and levels of experience. A ride for all the family can open up the hidden interior of the region, or the infinite expanse of the coast, with all the region’s beautiful landscape and enchanting views.
Hurry and discover the delights of the countryside, full of farms and old houses. Climb the mountains of Monchique and Caldeirão, or ride by the beaches and marinas that are colourfully sprinkled along the entire coast of the Algarve.
For people who have never ridden before, but enjoy being close to horses, one solution is to travel by a traditionally renovated and decorated carriage, drawn by a pair of animals. It is an ideal way to travel at a relaxed pace and get to know your way around.
