  Horse routes
 
Horse riding

Horse riding is a great way to enjoy the natural park.

Horse riding is a great way to enjoy the natural park. There are several companies that provide this type of activity along different routes that border the coast. You can visit old fortifications and farmhouses, towns such as Rodalquilar, or take walks through the most emblematic beaches of the park such as Los Genoveses or Monsul.
 
  Bike routes

Rutas en bici

Bike routes are another way to enjoy the natural park. It is necessary to remember that in the Cabo de Gata there is very little shade and the temperature can be very extreme, so in summer it is necessary to be cautious and not to stay out in the sun too much to avoid dangerous heat stroke.

During the rest of the year, the bike tours allow you to enjoy our favorite coves and explore the volcanic hills; a unique experience that you will seldom find anywhere else.
