This is a tourist entertainment company based in the heart of the Peneda-Gerês National park, which carries out a series of ecological activities, especially Equestrian Tourism.
Ecotura uses Lusitano and Garrano horses for its horse-trekking, the latter probably being the only horse in the world which can still really be found in the wild in our mountains. This breed has never been subject to any reintroduction, contrary to other species descending from the original horse.
Ecotura organises theme horse-treks, of varied duration, of which the following are highlighted: A day with horses in Gerês; Equestrian Holidays in the Land of the Wolf and Wild Horses and a day in the Mountain.
A Ecotura utiliza o cavalo Lusitano e o cavalo Garrano nos seus passeios, sendo este último provavelmente o único cavalo do mundo que se pode ainda encontrar verdadeiramente selvagem nas nossas montanhas. Esta raça nunca foi alvo de qualquer reintrodução, ao contrário de outras espécies descendentes do cavalo original.
A Ecotura desenvolve passeios equestres temáticos, com durações variadas dos quais se destacam: Um dia com cavalos no Gerês; Férias Equestres em Território do Lobo e dos Cavalos Selvagens e um dia na Montanha.
