DescriptionA superb trek with seven days of horse riding in the very high mountains for riders thirsty for adventure. On some days, our baggage is carried by mule and on the horses, as we do not have motorised accompaniment on all of the days. During this trek, we will be exploring the frontiers, following the routes of smugglers and traders. We will pass through the heart of the valley where our herd of brood mares pass their summers. There are numerous sections of a technical nature, as well as stunning scenery for nature-loving adventurers.
ScheduleSaturday: reception of the riders at the gîte of Camurac.
