Program

Day 1: Arrival

You will arrive at Masos d’en Coll. Make yourself at home! There, you will find all the comforts in a rural and traditional environment. Before dinner, the group will go over the week’s program. You will be told about the special characteristics of the Spanish and Arab trail horses.

You will be given an introduction to the weekend’s program with an opportunity for a one-to-one conversation designed to find every rider’s perfect horse (this individual conversation could take place on the next day in the morning instead). Then, you will enjoy a fantastic welcome dinner!

Day 2: Medieval villages

The ride takes you through the best-preserved medieval towns in Spain. You will cross beautiful medieval villages and the cities that are mere points on the map will become quaint terracotta-colored settlements the closer you get.

The small Palau-Sator; and incredible Peratallada, a village of medieval origin completely walled that preserves the defensive pit, tower, castle and palace, these villages deserve to be a little away from the beach.

You will continue through fields of oaks and pines until you reach the accommodation. It is a country house of the XIII century located at the foot of the hills of Gavarras, where you can enjoy the pool and the pleasant atmosphere of a good homemade dinner with local products, ecological and home-made.

Day 3: The Park of Gavarres

Today, you will cross the mountains of the Gavarras towards the beach of Pals. You will enjoy a very complete day, heading towards the interior of the Gavarras park. The vegetation here is rich, shaded by mountain streams, the forests are made up of oak, hazel and chestnut trees, in contrast to the rest of the predominantly Mediterranean territory.

You will have time for a complete meal and be able to recover strength. You will continue the trail passing through the beautiful medieval village of Pals, with history from the 9th-15th century, one of the stars of the area, a charming stone village with small cobblestone streets and decorated with flowers. It is on the top of a small hill where we can see the sea in the distance, spectacular views from a village with a medieval spirit.

You will continue a little more until you reach your hotel, just 5 minutes' walk from the beach, where you can relax, rest or walk along the beach.

Day 4: To be Beach of Pals

Today, you will start early. Shortly after sunrise and with a small breakfast at the hotel, you will prepare your horses and will go to the beach along with a flat territory, wetlands and of rice plantations.

You will arrive at the long beach of Pals, with more than 3.5 kilometers long and surrounded by dunes and pines, this beach has magnificent views over the Medes Islands, one of the most photographed panoramas of the Costa Brava.

On horseback, next to the sea and with the sun's rays peeking over the horizon, the indescribable feeling of freedom with our four-legged friends. You will continue all the way back to Els Masos d'en Coll with the river Ter as a companion and through paths of crops, especially apple trees.

To finish and before arriving at the accommodation, you will climb the hill to say goodbye with the best possible landscape, the sea in the distance with the three Medes Islands. You will have time to relax, talk, sunbathe or swim in the pool.

Note: there may be restrictions on the beach according to some time of the year.

Day 5: Departure

Departure after breakfast. EcoSlow Experience team does not like farewells, so they hope to see you soon in another adventure!
