Full description

Embark on a horse riding adventure in Santorini. Glide along the shores of Vlichada on horseback and take in the views of this volcanic beach. Stop for photos and enjoy the support of an on-hand guide.

Begin your horse riding adventure by having an expert show you the basics with all the necessary equipment. After starting your journey at the magical dunes of Caldera Beach, head to the Santorini fields to admire the unblemished beauty of nature, taking in panoramic views of the Aegean Sea.

Next, your path will lead you to the black beach of Vlichada, where you’ll ride along the shoreline dipping in and out of the water’s edge. Here you’ll have the chance to stop and take photos of the surrounding landscape and appreciate the picturesque sand dunes all around. Finally, you’ll continue along a route that takes you back to your stable, finishing your journey where you began but enriched with memories that will last a lifetime.

It has been a very nice experience and we liked it a lot. It was the first time that we have ridden a horse and they have explained everything to us very well and they have helped us in everything we have needed. It has been the best activity we have done in Santorini, we recommend it 100% and we will repeat it another time, we loved it!

It was a very pleasurable experience. Horses were lovely and behaved well under instructions. We had a lot of fun and we had many pictures and videos taken by the instructor. The only thing that was missing for us was trying to gallop a bit along the beach but we understand that it was a group with different levels of confidence when it comes to being on the horse and giving them clear instructions.

Manos and Barbara were amazing! This was my first time horse back riding and I was very scared but from the minute I arrived to the minute I left, manos and barbara kept reassuring me that everything will be okay and that I should not worry. They taught me how to get on the horse, how to move the horse, etc. they took lots of pictures and videos for me and made the experience so memorable. I was riding the horse so calmly because of how they taught me and how they kept reassuring me everything will be okay. They also arranged a taxi for me on the way back. Thank you Manos and Barbara! I can’t wait to return!
