Horse Riding

Quinta Paraiso Alto

+351 282 687 596

With long white beaches, beautiful countryside and the most sunshine in Europe, the Algarve is the perfect place to go horse riding.

QPA horse riding is set in lush country side just outside of Lagos and offers endless tracks with breathtaking views. They offer everything from one hour hacks to four day adventures, private lessons and even pony rides for the little ones!

Their well looked after horses are suitable for all standards: beginners will enjoy a quiet hack through the surrounding rivers and valleys, while experienced riders will love the feeling of freedom as they gallop up one of the many hills.

Established in 1992, QPA has been in operation for over 30 years! So you can trust you are in good hands and will have a great experience, no matter whether you are a complete beginner or seasoned rider. They only take out small groups so you will be well looked after.
This is sure to be a magical and memorable holiday experience!

Pony ride – €15
For the little ones! About 20 minutes of riding around our farm with lots of other ponies to see along the way. 

1-hour ride – €35
A great way to see Portugal’s beautiful countryside and reach places no vehicle can go!  This ride is suitable for all levels; beginners can go for a walk through the valley and rivers on one of our quiet horses and experienced riders can come for a blast up to the windmill!

2-hour ride – €60
Allows you to see that little bit more than the one hour ride… Ride through our valley, rivers and hills, amongst cork trees, pine forests and lovely tracks shaded by large eucalyptus trees.  If you are lucky you may even see a wild boar!  We only recommend riders with some experience ride for 2 hours, however, please do enquire if you think you can handle it!

(Each additional hour €25)



Times are flexible and can be booked according to your wishes.

“The West Coast Ride was the most amazing experience! Hard work, but I loved every minute of it, and I’m seriously considering doing in again later this year!”

“Really enjoyed the ride round the windmill! It’s years since I was last on a horse, but our guide was great, making sure we had an afternoon to remember!”
