Marvão, between its spectacular landscapes and unique horseback options we find it possible to combine the therapeutic properties of horseback riding, with the thrill of adventure. No prior knowledge of horseback riding is required to enjoy these deeply satisfying and healthy adventure programs, where with the organization of Caballos Marvão, whether a solo participant or a whole family there is a program suited to you!
One of our many exciting trails is the ‘smugglers route’ which was in the past used to illegally transport goods across the border of Portugal and Spain undetected. With this wonderful trail not only will you have the rare opportunity relive a piece of history, but also to explore Valencia de Alcántara and San Pedro de los Majarretes.
Other trails run through the awe inspiring landscapes of Cabeçudos marvanenses, Santo António das Areias, Pitaranha, Galegos and Beirã.
Visit us! The Caballos Marvão team will guide you through an unforgettable experience.
The horse trails have been organized by Dr. Jose Silva, a passionate lover of horse riding and experienced advocate of hippotherapy. He and the rest of the Caballos Marvão team teach a unique way to enjoy the soothing sound of hooves, the rhythmic motion of the horse or even to discover the boldness of the gallop. All this, while breathing the pure air of a region still unknown to pollution.
