The only thing better than hiking through the Sierra Madre Occidental in Mexico is horseback riding through it. And on this half-day trip, that is exactly what you will be able to do.

Beginning in Puerto Vallarta, we will make our way to the Sierra Madre. Once there, you will get on horseback and make your way through the area’s collection of peaks and forest. A fantastic mix of relaxing sightseeing with adventurous horseback riding, this trip, which will last for approximately 3 hours, will immerse you in a gorgeous, natural world. Furthermore, because this is not a difficult trip, it is open to people of all levels, even first timers.

During this trip, you will encounter everything from jungle and peaks to wildlife, a river and a majestic waterfall. And you will get to see it all from horseback. And, because this trip begins and ends at Puerto Vallarta, you will also get to enjoy one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in all of Mexico.

Horseback riding in any environment is an experience everybody should try. But on this half-day trip, you will get to enjoy that experience amidst the stunning beauty of the Sierra Madre Occidental of Mexico. To join us on this trip, all you have to do is send a request. We look forward to guiding you.

If you would like to hike through the Sierra Madre, we also offer this half-day trek in El Nogalito.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
