Those who make Proatur are people who feel passion for horses and the equestrian world and we want to transfer our passion to this tourist initiative that seeks to share the experience of being in contact with horses to people who wish to have the experience of tourism in nature in a different and unforgettable way.
(Promotora de actividades turísticas, s.a.) was established in May 1987 for developing its business activity in the field of nature tourism. In the same month, he became the winner of the CAMPINGREDOS farm, a newly built municipal camping site in Hoyos del Espino (Ávila), in the middle of the Gredos mountains; Since then PROATUR has maintained a special relationship with this magnificent natural scenery that is said mountain.
Seeking to make it easier to carry out the Way of St. James riding a horse, since 2015 Proatur manages and attends a series of BOXES located along the Way as it passes through Castilla y León region.
In them, following the itinerary, the horsemen find suitable facilities for the rest and the care of their mounts.
We have in Simancas (Valladolid) and on the banks of the Arlanza river, in Covarrubias (Burgos) two equestrian centers from which we make horse trails of different levels, beginner or advanced, courses of equitation in which we include the class in English, so that you can learn to ride while practicing English.
In addition to the classic activities linked to the facilities of Covarrubias and Valladolid (routes, dressage, care, classes …), PROATUR has launched a series of GREAT TOURIST HORSE RIDES, which run for several days the most emblematic sites of our lands , Full of natural attractions, historical and artistic, gastronomic and oenological … and that have made them attractive in our country and outside our borders.
In the section on RECOGNITIONS, we are pleased to note that PROATUR received in 2004 the BEST ACTIVE TOURISM PRODUCT in the “Adventure” and “Absolute” modalities that are presented at the FITUR fair. Also in 2004, one of its routes, La Burgos-Arlanza Trail is named “BEST ROUTE OF THE PEGASUS CATALOG IN SPAIN”.
