As part of our Programme of training at Serenity House Treatment Centre we offer individuals the opportunity to take part in external and on-site activities within the local area including:
- HORSE-RIDING AT THE LOCAL EQUESTRIAN CENTRE
It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or an advanced rider to enjoy this activity, the local Equestrian Centre can provide you with an individual riding programme. The riding lessons take place in small groups of 2-6 riders. You have the opportunity to combine your Treatment Centre Programme at Serenity House Treatment Centre with riding lessons and treks along the Via Verde route.
The Via Verde or “Greenway”
as it is known, is the result of converting the disused railway lines into cycling and walking horse-riding routes. Easy, accessible, far removed from motorised traffic and with hardly any steep slopes, they are specially recommended for nature lovers and people who enjoy outdoor exercise.
There are already 1.500 kilometres of Greenways throughout Spain (more than 58 greenways), all of which have been carefully prepared to allow you to discover the most hidden corners of our countryside.. A great opportunity to take outdoor exercise, explore the local area, natural wildlife with extraordinary scenery and culture: amazing valleys and mountains, impressive bridges and viaducts more than a hundred years old, mysterious tunnels that once let the trains pass through and now await the new adventurers. Escorted weekly walks are available.
