If you love horses and nature, do not miss this!
This was a fantastic experience from beginning to end!! I wish I didn't have to leave, because this was truly special. The horses are amazing and very well taken care of. I learned a lot from Carlos and from those smart horses. He has trained each horse of the herd, knows each of them by heart. I had many questions, because I was so impressed at how well the horses carry themselves and respond to slight leg signals. They are smart and well trained for the trails, they do not panic or follow each other without paying attention.
On top of this, the landscape is beautiful, the food amazing, and everyone I met was so welcoming, starting with Carlos! I cannot recommend it more, I seriously felt like staying for good :).

Beautiful horses + beautiful trails
I can only recommend taking one of the trails at Quinta do FIjo.
Carlos, who runs the place, trained his beautiful horses very well, it is a pure pleasure to ride them. At my two hour trip I enjoyed the beautiful landscape and Carlos also gave me interesting insights about the country.
I will definitely come again.

Good horses, great trails
Arcos is surrounded by a national park where you will cross free ranging cows (with awesome horns) and packs of wild horses. Real wilderness.

The guide will not baby-sit you, so be careful to bring your water bottles (hot over there in Summer) and check your cinch.

Lodging is good and the pool is a welcome relief after hours in the saddle.

For all the horse and nature lovers
Really fine horses (don't follow each others like stupid horses, don't fear any thing), nice trails and awesome landscape. Thank you to Carlos and his team.
