At some sections of the trail, the group will be divided according to experience level so that riders with more experience can trot or gallop, while those who are novices can continue to ride in a more calm manner.

Worth it. Three of us went, two having barely any experience and a friend who has been riding for years. They gave us a horse according to our experience and took us on a custom ride. The treatment was very personal. Perfect.

I always go horse riding in every country I visit, and this time has been one of the best trips. Really special.

I have been riding for more than 10 years and I booked this tour based on the recommendations of some friends of mine. The horses, the tour and the professionalism of the guide are what make my friend and I recommend this tour.

The warmth with which the team treated us made my partner and I, who have only ridden a couple of times before, feel comfortable, and we enjoyed two pleasant hours.

4 of us friends went on a horse tour just for us. Two of my friends had experience, but my wife and I were first-time riders. They gave us horses based on our experience and took us on a fantastic 2 hour ride.

Worth it. I am an experience rider and horse riding Gran Canaria with OK Gran Canaria was a great expererience. Fantastic tour and Service. Thank you!

Group of 3. We paid for 2 hours. The tour guide asked us how we were doing at all times since we were novices, and if anything happened to us, there he was. The only downside is that we did not go to the beaches at the end because they are not doing that tour nowadays. Anyway, it was great to start. Now we know for next time.

Everything was fantastic. We enjoyed both the mountain scenery and the riding, and the time passed quickly.

When the horse that touches you is named Hercules, it’s priceless, hahaha. I was already confident but the guides motivated me a lot on the route. It was an unforgettable experience. I will return soon to do it again with my husband. Thanks.

Our guide has been very close and given spectacular treatment to my daughter and I. It’s the best riding tour that you can find in the southern part of the island. Everything is brilliant. I went with a friend who has horses and who convinced me to go on a 2-hour riding tour during our trip to Gran Canaria. The service, the horses, the tour and the treatment of the guides was fabulous. Highly recommended.

Great experience

Highly recommended. I have been riding for many years, and my daughter and I booked a 3 hour tour in order to be able to ride on the beach. Incredible.

Beautiful tour. We took the 3 hour excursion and had a marvellous time horse riding Gran Canaria galloping in a nice ravine.

I have been riding horses for more than 30 years, and my wife for more than 15, and the tour we did for two hours was special both for its personal treatment and for the horses and the route that we took. Highly recommended if you ride horses.

They care that they give these horses and the cleanliness of them is noted. A thousand thanks guys once again. We absolutely recommend it.

My girlfriend and I are very adventurous and we decided to try this riding tour. We’re very happy with the experience and the guides were always attentive. If you’re like us and not very experienced, at the end of the journey you might be a bit sore but it is worth it.

As a little group of 4, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Everyone was very attentive and personal. Many thanks for their kind treatment on the tour. 10/10

The staff were very nice. I have been riding since I was a child in my home country Germany, and now that I am living in Erasmus I have not missed an opportunity to go on a horseback riding trip through the mountains. Anyway, if you have no experience yourself, they will adjust to you and teach you the basics to start riding. You certainly will not be disappointed.

I loved it, very friendly. Go with your partner or some friends and learn to ride, go on a walk and have some personal time with the horses. It’s worth a try.

Great to do something different! Even thought we had no experience, we went horse riding Gran Canaria in a tour and we had the best time in the island.

The island is full of wonders. I am from Belfast and I signed up for the horseback riding tour because it’s my hobby and passion. It was a real treat to enjoy the scenery for a few hours, as well as the ravine at the end of the tour. It has really been worth it.

I went with my wife and we are both experienced riders. They took us on a route specially for us. Good horses, good tour and very good treatment by the guides. Absolutely recommended if you go to Gran Canaria.

Wonderful. My wife, her mother and I wanted to go with our 2 children, and they explained to us that it was best if we split into two groups. The older ones went in a group and we did the two hour tour and my children did the 1 hour tour. Highly recommended.

We went as a group of 4 and we cannot say enough about the treatment at all times. Half of us have experience, and it was the first time for the other half, and at the end they wanted to go back and do it again. Another positive was that they brought us from the hotel to the horseback riding area, which is much easier.
