Trail ride through the Rhaetian Alps in Graubünden in 8 days
A soul ride – We ride through mountainous terrain in deep connection with our horse. Climbs, descents and longer gallops alternate, depending on the day’s stage. The varied landscapes are breathtaking and bring you close to your nature. Through the attentive interaction with your horse partner you will also succeed in exciting passages. In fairness, there are occasional places that we carry ourselves to ensure safe movement for the horses in the field. It is an average of 30-50 min/day on foot. Then the next gallop will be even more fun.
In the high valleys we rest in mountain villages at an altitude of 1’800 m above sea level and then climb again up to 2’800 m above sea level.
