Ronda, Sierra de Grazalema, Villemartin: a breathtaking
mountain ride to the home of the eagles
This tour can be combined with the „taster-course-trail“.
That would add up to a 14 day tour.
If you think you´ ve seen all riding options in Andalusia,
think again! Here is a surprise! A spectacular mountainous landscape
with rough ranges above which the golden eagle and vultures gracefully
glide; valleys so secluded even the cattle observe the riders in
disbelief. Stony trails and narrow paths will take you up to the
Ronda plateau and back down the western slope of the Serrania de
Ronda to the agricultural plains between Arcos de la Frontera and
You will pass through the nature preserve of Grazalema, renowned
for its abundance of birds ( over 200 different species including
4 large birds of prey ). Enjoy the view of El Gastor´s reservoir
and bathe in the crystal blue mountain spring water of Lake Jimena.
You will be amazed at the agility and perfomance of the andalusian
Day 1. Pick-up from Malaga and transfer to Rancho La Paz,
dinner and overnight. In case you took part in the “taster-course”
you will remain in the hotel in Caserabonela from where the trip
starts the next day.
Day 2.Transfer to the coast ( approx. 1 hour ) where the
ride from Casarabonela to El Burgo begins. We will use small winding
mountain trails, cattle paths and forest roads to go through pine
woods, the Sierra de Alcaparan and the Sierra de las Aguas. Here
you will have an amazing sight over green valleys, never-ending
mountain ranges solitary villages past Malaga all the way to the
Sierra Nevada and its gleaming snow-capped peaks.
After a picnic lunch brought by the support vehicle we are en route
to the picturesque mountain village of El Burgo. Dinner and lodging
Day 3. From El Burgo to Ronda. The direct route leads us into
a lonesome mountain countryside. You may come across a rare hiker
or a shepherd and his scattered goat herds. Occasionally it will
be necessary to lead the horses a few meters as the paths are merely
narrow goat paths. Surrounded by oaks, mimosa and chestnut we will
have a picnic brought along in our saddlebags since no support car
In the early afternoon we reach Ronda, where we will circle the
plateau before arriving at the stables taking in the last view of
the town and its famous bridge. There will be enough time for check-in
and a relaxing stroll through the Old Town. The typical family-run
hotel with much charm is less than 20 m away from the famous bull
fighting arena ( one of the oldest in Spain ) and the bridge over
the river Tajo. Dinner and lodging in Ronda.
Day 4. Today you start form Ronda ( probably the best-known
city in heart of Andalusia ) to an unfamiliar part of Andalusia:
The sure-footed Andalusian horses will carry you through ever-changing
landscapes of rocky mountains, wild-life filled nature preserves,
olive groves and green plains. The nature park of Grazalema might
even be called a “national park”. Our path takes us
along ridges and to occasional opportunities to gallop towards the
white village of Grazalema. A comfortable room and bathroom awaits
you. Dinner will be at a cozy restaurant in Grazalema
Day 5. Today you will circle the town and will find unique
views of the Tajo Canyon. Riding north-westwards between the mountain
ranges, with their goat trails, little creeks and mountain pastures
you descend towards Zahara de la Sierra. A picnic will be brought
by the support vehicle. Hours of winding trails take you along ranges
and never-ending sights until Zahara appears before you. This “white
village” right beside a deep blue reservoir has been declared
an historic-artists´ village. The group arrives in time for
a pleasant swim in a small lake near the stables. Dating back to
the 8th century the town with its Arabic influences will certainly
tempt you to take an evening stroll before dinner. Dinner and overnight
in a hotel in Zahara de la Sierra.
Day 6. Leaving Zahara we head for the nature preserve of
Benamahoma. The route leads down meandering paths through cork tree
forests and in the distance you can sometimes catch a glimpse of
the El Bosque plain. The preserve not only protects the wildlife
but also the dense and old oak tree population which offers cool
shade in the summer. As cars are not allowed in the preserve you
will have a picnic lunch from your saddle bag. Lodging in a hotel
in El Bosque.
Day 7. You have reached the El Bosque plain and old cattle
trails pass by little farms that are scattered all over the countryside.
Now there are plenty of opportunities for galloping. You will see
“fincas” with their typical red cows. As horses are
a part of every-day-life here, it is quite normal to let them drink
from the town well. Villamartin lies in the centre of a very fertile
area that provides feed for the larger part of Andalusia´s
cattle. The year-round irrigation comes from several reservoirs
like the “Embalse de Bornos”. Depending on the season
you will look upon fields covered with flowers or wheat in spring,
acres of sunflowers in the summer or gleaming blue reservoirs in
autumn. Finally you return to Rancho la Paz for dinner and lodging.
