Bilbao, Beach & Medieval Village By Horseback
5.5 HoursModerate-StrenuousHorseback | Sightseeing | Essentials Collection
Enjoy a horseback beach trail riding with kindred adventurers only a few miles away from the Port of Bilbao. The area offers almost 124 miles (200 km) of white sandy beaches, one after the other, coves hidden amidst cliffs, marshlands, estuaries, and dunes. Stunning landscapes where the sea blends with the mountains, make the whole area a paradise of contrasts waiting to be discovered. Equestrian tourism is an enjoyable, original, different way to discover the land. The activity is planned to be developed in small groups according to each rider’s skills. Castro Urdiales - also known as Flavióbriga after the Roman settlement which stood here, has all the charm of a small seafaring and fishing village, with a rich tradition and tourist atmosphere. The town center, with its characteristic houses with wooden rows of balconies, is medieval in origin and earned recognition as a Historic Site in 1978. Its main monuments, of different styles and periods, contrast with the sobriety of the old village, formed by narrow streets which are perfect for strolling through. The buildings of the church of Santa María, from the 13th to the 15th centuries, the most significant example of Cantabria's Gothic architecture, and the castle-lighthouse, visible from all parts of town, are the most representative sights in Castro Urdiales (outside visit of both monuments).
Please note: Make sure to wear comfortable clothes and boots. You will be provided with a riding hat. This tour is not wheelchair accessible.
