Our promise to you

beautiful Aruba scenery

“We promise to offer you an exciting horseback adventure experienced with a small group, either in a private ride or in a regular ride. Anyone can ride with us, since we offer only the best horses according to your riding skills, whether that is some, very little or none whatsoever. It is also our goal to provide you with an unforgettable experience that covers over 7 spots, including Beaches, the Hidden Valley and Lagoon. We are grateful to be able to let you experience with us the best spots on the North-East Coast of Aruba. We do not offer you just a trail ride, but the best horseback adventure on the island. You will explore this adventure with all your senses. You start off in the wilderness as soon as you leave the Ranch, and it is not just about looking at trees and the ocean. You will actually ride on the beach, and experience the strong breeze and waves around you. Last, but not least, we do all of this with personal attention to you, in our small groups that ensure safety first and fun at all times. You will be given ample safety and riding instructions and you will be able to ride at your own pace”.

We are the only ranch located right on the coast, no need to travel inland, crossing dangerous high ways to reach the beach.

Start this journey that takes you through the old gold mine path and ruins, a must see that takes you through 100 years of man-made structures during the Gold Rush Period vs. breathtaking views of Nature.

A family operated company

The Gold Mine Ranch has been established in 2004 as a rescue Ranch, despite the fact that horse feed was and still is very expensive in Aruba. Our family has always loved animals and we continue the tradition of raising animals and farm life for over 5 generations. We strive to make you feel part of our local tradition and rich history around the Gold Mill Ruins and the beauty of the natural surroundings. We strive to let you experience our genuine Aruban hospitality.

Behind the tours we have a family and a great team and volunteers to keep the horses healthy. Our motivation: your happiness is our satisfaction. That is now and for always our main principle. That’s why our tours are small, tailored to the riding skill of each rider, giving you the personal touch in every horseback riding adventure.

Let us be the highlight of your vacation!
