After a very hot summer, when we could only take the horses out early in the morning or late at night, the cool, sun kissed days of the autumn and winter are back. It’s time to make for the hills and after that the mountains for a three-day trail. This is an exhilarating trip on steady, safe and sure footed horses and the best that Mallorca has to offer in views, nature and food.
What we’ll be doing
Staying for two nights in comfortable rooms at the atmospheric Lluc Monastery, where we wander the corridors and courtyards in the footsteps of monks. We find rib-sticking food and wine in the restaurant each night and a big breakfast to start the day each morning. The horses overnight in a field belonging to the monastery and we spend the days together riding through the most beautiful scenery until we reach what feels like the top of the world.
We’ll find the perfect horse for you and you don’t have to be an expert to complete this trip. We offer an all -inclusive package from the first morning after breakfast until after a large late lunch on the third day for 675€.
So much to discover
Find the ancient tracks of the “ice men” who packed the high mountain snow into deep caves to make ice and then carried it in blocks into the towns and villages of what is now the Tramuntana World Heritage Site. See the old charcoal burning platforms in the wooded valleys and the Kites and Black Vultures circling overhead. At the highest point see the sea on three sides of where you stand and breath the clear mountain air. Best of all find your heart and soul in the company of the most empathetic and loyal of creatures – your horse.
