Rides vary from one hour to full day or multi-day rides, each led by experienced local guides and varying in difficulty. You can also bring your own horse and take advantage of the stables in the area. Safety demonstrations and professional guidance is provided on guided rides, but it's important to ensure you choose a trail within your skill level.
