    The Camino means different things to different people. For some it’s a pilgrimage, a spiritual journey, a chance to get away from the mayhem of modern living and reconnect with yourself.  For others it is a sociable journey, an historical tour or active holiday.  Most people either walk or cycle the Camino both of which have their own draw.  However, for the more intrepid traveller who is looking a memorable holiday it is possible to do the Camino by horseback!

    Horses have been associated with the Iberian Peninsula for centuries, and during the many wars over the centuries in Spain horses played a strategic role in many of the battles particularly during the Reconquista.  With horses being so much a part of the history of this land and the people what better place to enjoy a horse riding holiday through the unspoilt countryside of northern Spain.

    For the horse riding enthusiast we have a trip Horse Ride the Camino Frances which will take you from O’Cebreiro in the province of Lugo to Santiago de Compostela. Riding over rolling grassy hills, through leafy woodlands and small towns and villages you can feel at one with nature and your horse whilst appreciating the elevated view that a horse provides.

    But don’t take our word for it; take it from the horse’s mouth ….
