Description of Horse riding vacation in Portugal
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
Our partners behind this vacation promote inclusivity on all their trips and across their business and we are all committed to ensuring travelers face no discrimination on any part of the trip they control.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetIt should be noted that we belong to the Peneda Gerκs National Park and at the same time the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. We have a great responsibility. In the protection of this territory the Iberian Lynx, the Wolf, the Deer, the Wild Horse, the wild pig, the Royal Eagle and squirrels live side by side as well as a flora unique in biodiversity.
The responsibility is enormous for us and in that sense. We involve local communities in replenishment. Of the lands we pass through, the rivers we cross. In order to diminish our impact in nature with the practice of our acticvidades.
It is also in this way that we involve the local communities. They learn to recycle organic matter, but also wax, glass, etc., transforming these materials into nature-friendly products and lowering the cost of the products.
Every year we sponsor the planting of 1 hectare of trees and plants in the National Park.
PeopleThroughout the year we support initiatives of a social group. We are present in the support of the Food Bank. Free food choices to help and distribute for those most in need. This support is important in a territory with large asymmetries and where the winter climate is harsh and makes it difficult to survive small groups that have nothing.
One of the ways of that our guests can better get to know the culture is the habits of the territory that it visits is to interact with the populations.
It is for this reason that we take the guests along their walks to communicate, to visit the houses, the places where the natives of the territory live. One of the processes is to help make bread, and to know the traditional methods of the people of the old villages.
To get to know the local gastronomy better, we take our travelers daily to eat in small, traditional restaurants. But those where the contact with the polulation is stronger and is more present. Thus being able to interact with the place and understand the food habits and their ancestral traditions.
