Portugal’s Lusitano horses need no introduction. Their sweet character and sure-footedness are a rider’s dream. They will therefore serve as your primary mode of transportation on this seven-night Portugal horseback riding tour along Portugal’s western shores. In the safe hands of an experienced instructor, your Lusitano horse will lead you through the forests and beaches of the Comporta region. Here the famous cork trees have grown for centuries.
Enjoy five full days of guided Portugal horseback riding. Each private ride takes you in different directions, so it can be adapted to most riding levels. Whether at the rural wine estate of The Serenada Wine Hotel or the five-star accommodations of Sublime Comporta, you can take comfort in knowing you will be pampered after each day of riding.
Highlights of your Portugal horseback riding journey include rides through the forests of eucalyptus – their distinctive perfume filling the air and their bark crunching underneath the horses’ hooves – as well as fast canters along the sand dunes. Leisure time by lagoons, gallops through rice fields, trots past the shepherds, and swims in the sea contribute to each day’s diversity. Every Portugal horseback riding day also includes a picnic lunch.
Should you need some rest from riding, a day trip to Alcácer do Sal is also included. Here you may visit one of the oldest handmade saddlery establishments in Portugal. You will also enjoy a cellar tour and wine tasting at the local seaside winery of Quinta do Brejinho.
