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 Villemartin.

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 horses.


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 in Casarabonela.

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 can follow.
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.

Day 8. Departure.
