Paardrijvakantiesinspanje

In the middle of the nature of the Sierra Nevada is the riding school where Goyo works as a guide. He invites you to ride on horseback through olive and almond trees, climb beautiful mountain ranges and descend the rich valleys. The lunar landscapes and the traditional cave houses will enchant you with all their charm. The horses are very well-trained and Goyo as a guide will let you enjoy an unforgettable experience immersed in the wild flora of Andalusia.

Goyo, especially on his bicycle, has traveled through countries such as Morocco, Cuba, Italy, France and Germany and speaks excellent English.

He has a great passion for the mountains and besides riding, he also specializes in downhill skiing, canyoning and climbing.
