Archipelago Choice has introduced a selection of horse-riding packages on the island of São Miguel in the Azores.
The itineraries are suitable for novice, intermediate and experienced riders and can be combined with other activities such as walking or whale-watching.
A Light week costs from £1,170 per person and includes ten hours of riding, which can be taken either as riding lessons or full- or half-day rides, plus seven days’ car hire.
A Medium week costs from £1,297 and includes one full day and four half-days of riding. It also includes five lunches, four dinners and transfers.
Alternatively, a Full week leads in at £1,428 and includes three full days and two half-days of riding, a one-hour lesson, five lunches, four dinners and transfers.
All trips include a pre-departure information booklet, breakfast accommodation, flights and a three-hour whale and dolphin watching trip.
The new tours use the stables at the 17th-century manor house, Quinta da Terça, as a base for exploring the island and accommodation is provided at the house.
Facilities include a covered riding arena (picadeiro) with a large open fireplace and a bar. The operator is able to provide separate itineraries for accompanying guests who do not ride.
