Rudi Stolz (Trail leader)
In 1993 Rudi Stolz had the idea to create trail rides in Catalonia. Rudi is the owner of Panorama-Trails and over the years the rides have developed from one week round trips to a variety of different and challenging trail-rides, covering the Catalan countryside from the mountains to the sea.
Rudi‘s trails are captivating as he manages to show the rider the stunning beauty of the country, on trails that are varied in speed and terrain (from small hidden paths and tracks to wide open beaches). With his many years of experience he is able to take you on a riding journey to explore the culture, scenery and cuisine of the local area and people.
Rudi‘s rides are safe and balanced, which is attributable to his intensive training and the natural handling of the horses.
As a professional photographer Rudi manages to capture the good memories, scenery and great experiences for his clients in the form of brilliant photos. His photos have been shown by travel agents and have been seen on the front covers of magazines. The best thing about Rudi’s trails is that there is always another adventure to come back to and guests always want to return for another ride!
Catalonia's coast has been her home for 20 years now, so she knows Catalonia's people and their culture very well. Horses have been a part of her life since her childhood. In 2010, she was able to turn her much-loved hobby into her work. She now takes care of all the administrative tasks and organisation of our trails.
