Our unspoilt tracks and trails through the countryside, with views of the Monchique mountain range, stunning landscapes and an abundance of lush flora lining the trails – it’s a brilliant two hour ride.

Day 3:
3 hours of riding. Now you’re comfortable and confident in the saddle you’re ready to explore the coastline and National Park on the Safari Ride. Bigger tracks with instruction on the way, you will ride through the national forests to the west coast and explore the wild and beautiful beaches the Algarve is so famous for.
