What people are saying about Sagres

The best ride of my life! We rode through the national park to a great vantage point with a view of the entire coast and then went back to the beach. We galloped and trotted several times. The guide always asked if everything was ok and made a lot of videos and photos. You could enjoy the sunset during the entire ride. That was an experience for the heart. I highly recommend it.

It was fantastic! It's off-season and I was alone with the guide, you can tell immediately that he loves what he does, he raves about his horses and the great nature. I felt very well looked after. I highly recommend it, it was great fun, my horse was amazing and the view priceless! Very clear recommendation, I would like to give even more stars;)

My husband and I had a great horseback ride with our guide who was brilliant, he made us discover the little corners of heaven! He took lots of pictures of us with his phone he then emailed us they are very pretty! He is very careful with his horses, he talks to them, he pampers them. I'm keeping a very good memory of it

Coasteering was great! It felt like a true adventure in a place that’s probably not unlike paradise. Jim made me feel safe while still getting me out of my comfort zone. Wouldn’t want to have missed this experience! Definitely one of the highlights of my trip.

Great experience with many different activities, definitely worth giving it a go if you like adventures! Nelson and Bobby were very welcoming, friendly and provided a lot of information about the area.
