Our adventure begins picking you up at your hotel at 8:30 am, to board our private mobility and head on an 1 hour trip approximate to the community of Cruzpata that will be the meeting point with the muleteers and our horses.

We will begin our equestrian activity from Cruzpata going through beautiful roads decorated by the imposing snowy peaks and mountains of the place, as well as with large extensions of fertile crop fields that still nowadays are used by the communities that inhabit the area. Our journey will take us to Moray, where we’ll leave the horses to enter the archaeological center of the same name.
