Traditionally known as the “Cradle of Ancient Civilisation”, Greece, with its endless miles of fragmented aquamarine coastline, charming countryside and sun-bleached history, is an ideal year round destination to explore on Horseback.
In Crete, the larger of the Greek Islands, ride the magnificent 100 mile Lasiithi Trail from coast to coast over the Dikti Mountains, past olive groves and lakes. Crete also has several riding centres offering day rides and lessons to suit all ages and abilities. In unspoilt idyllic Kefalonia take a week long trek, combining exhilarating canters on deserted pink sandy beaches with gentle rides into the cooler mountains of the west. Early morning riding avoids the intense summer heat, but there is often the opportunity to cool off by swimming with your horse, in the beautifully clear sea waters.
On mainland Greece, trail rides take you along cobbled pathways, through sleepy villages, secluded coves and the scented forests of the unspoilt eastern Pelion peninsula. From expert riding tuition on Skiathos, to mobile trail rides on Naxos, discover a wealth of equestrian opportunities. Riding in Greece is an irresistible blend of quality horses, hospitable thirst-quenching tavernas, whitewashed villages and fragrant olive groves against a backdrop of sun kissed sands and the sparkling azure waters of the Aegean Sea.
