Horse Riding

Exploring the Cretan countryside has countless highlights. Touring the nature paths can be the most beautiful and extraordinary experience whilst galloping on a friendly, noble creature. Following the ancient mainland paths on horseback, we discover the most relaxing and peaceful scenery. We travel in the evergreen area of Chania, find our way up to secluded and forgotten hills and sink into idyllic gorges. The sound of running water, the leaves' rustling and the birds singing extensively relaxes both your mind and body.

Whilst galloping on our horse, we experience a unique adventure. By observing nature's beauty, we are carried to other eras, riding along the streets that horse riders once rode on and used to trade and commute. Roads on which aspiring conquerors, wandering nomads and lords of the time also travelled along.

The memories of this guided experience on horseback, wandering the vast countryside, will remain forever a special memory and will surely win a place in your heart.

EXCITING BEACH RIDES & BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYSIDE

For your best-ever holiday enjoyment, we offer exciting beach rides, beautiful mini-safaris and relaxing day trips as well as easy beginner's walks for non-experienced riders. Green hills, goat-tracks, olive groves, herbs and wild flowers, the unique lake of Kournas, Argiroupoli's waterfalls, many small friendly villages and a superb beach combine to make this the holiday experience of a lifetime!
