Horse Riding Packages

Experience Crete differently

Exploring the Cretan countryside has innumerable highlights. Touring the nature paths can be the most beautiful and extraordinary experience whilst galloping on a friendly, noble creature. Following the ancient inland paths on horseback we discover the most relaxing and serene scenery. We travel along the sandy coastline, find our way up to secluded and forgotten hills and sink into idyllic gorges. The sound of running water, the rustling of the leaves and the birds singing greatly relaxes both your mind and body.

Whilst galloping on our horse we experience a unique adventure. By observing the grandeur of nature we are carried to other eras, riding along the streets which horse riders once rode on and used for trading and commuting. Streets 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.

Once we and the horses are dried up, we re-saddle and enjoy a 5 km beach-ride back home. Riding through the outskirts of Georgioupolis and countryside, we'll return to the ranch.
