Here’s an activity for all the nature and animal lovers out there – horseback riding at Ibiza Horse Valley is the peaceful experience you’ve been looking for. With several options available such as the Half Day experience (around 4-5 hrs) that guides you through a tour of the mountains and the Full Day experience (8 hrs) along the beach. One of the coolest things about this place that sets it apart from other horseback riding establishments, is that the horses live together in a herd, which is great for the horses and also part of the experience for customers because you get an opportunity to meet the different horses and choose which one you would like to ride. Of course, there’s options available for beginners and experienced riders so no one is left out! Have a look through their website for more information.
