Given its immense coastline and various other geographical features, the Algarve is an ideal region to explore on horseback. There are numerous stables and schools perfect for riding or learning to ride.
At any time of the year, (while preferably out of the peak summer heat unless riding in the western Algarve), you’ll need a long holiday to cover even the smallest area of ground.
As a start you’ll find some of the best off-road beach routes in the seaside villages of the Costa Vicentina.
Horse rides may be organised for one or more days with rural accommodation provided en route. Discover the best of a rural gastronomy unique to the Algarve in its remote villages and hamlets.
