Do something awesome on your Gran Canaria
stag weekend! Get off the tourist trail and conquer the interior on horseback.
This two-hour trek will show you there's more to the island than crystal
waters, white sands and hotels. Discover the volcanic landscapes, valleys,
pineapple plantations, mountain tracks and dusty trails that make it one in a
million. Trot, canter and even gallop at the end if you've got the skills. Fine
for all abilities, this trek includes guides and equipment. Just bring long
trousers and sun cream.
We'll organise pickup in Playa del Ingles
or one of the surrounding resorts. You'll be driven to the ranch and met by the
instructors. They'll put you with a horse that suits your ability level.
Beginners will learn how to get in the saddle and master basic skills like
walking on, stopping, and turning with the reins. Those with experience will
jump at the chance to ride in an amazing location like Gran Canaria.
There's nothing quite like this terrain in
the UK. You just don't get papaya and banana plantations in Devon and Cornwall.
Grab the chance to see something completely different and escape the craziness
of the big resorts for a bit.
As this is a morning activity (best done
before it gets too hot) you'll have done the trails and be back on Playa del
Ingles beach for sunbathing and a well-deserved cold beer by early afternoon.
