    Horse Ride the Camino Frances

    Camino Frances on Horseback: the last 150km to Santiago de Compostela

    The French Way is one of the most popular walking and cycling routes of the Camino de Santiago.  However this is not the only way to experience this route, you can also horse ride the Camino.

    Horses have been associated with the Iberian Peninsula for thousands of years.  The Andalusian or Pura Raza Espa?ola comes from this area and is world renowned for its intelligence, sensitivity and docility. Which make it a perfect horse for riding on the Camino.  

    Experiencing the Camino Frances on a horse ride holiday will not only allow you an elevated viewpoint to appreciate the magnificent scenery along the Way but also allows you to cover more ground.  You travel approximately 30km a day which is 6-8hrs riding.  To horse ride was the preferred method of travel for the Kings of Spain in days past and even St James is depicted riding a horse.  So if it?s good enough for Royalty and a Saint then why not you?

    This trip which starts in O?Cebreiro, known for its round stone houses with straw thatched roofs.   Will appeal to riders that enjoy steering horses over rolling country side, through forests as well as towns before reaching the final destination of Santiago de Compostela.  As this is an all-inclusive trip you will get to experience some of the finest local and freshly prepared cuisine along the way in family run restaurants.  Each rider will be assigned a horse for the duration of the trip and is sure to become a firm friend on this trip.
     

    This Camino on Horseback is all inclusive!
