The El Marquesado ride circles the Sierra Nevada mountain range following some of the highest bridle paths on the Spanish Peninsula reaching altitudes of over 3,000 metres. Accessible only by horse or foot we will be riding through some of the most spectacular, varied and often demanding terrain in Sierra Nevada and El Marquesado.
Following a combination of forestry tracks, bridle paths, old droving routes and Moorish irrigation channels we will ride for 7-9 hours per day covering approximately 30 to 40 kilometres.
During the ride one night is spend in a high mountain refuge, the other 6 nights in comfortable village hotels (3 with pools). Each day there will be sections where it is necessary to lead your horses due to very steep and rough terrain. On 2 days there are downhill walks on foot of up to an hour and a half.
