Full description
Begin your horse riding adventure by having an expert show you the basics and provide you with all the necessary equipment. After starting your journey at the magical dunes of Caldera Beach, you’ll be guided to the Santorini fields to admire the unblemished beauty of nature, taking in panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and the local culture. 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 to 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.

Really really amazing experience! The guide was amazing, helpful made sure we had nothing to be worried about and it was our first time! We actually were half an hour late, and instead of refusing us entry, they were very understanding and still let us participate in the activity, which was very kind of them! Really lovely place, beautiful scenery, stunning horses!

Manos and Barbara were fantastic! A huge honour to be taught how to ride from a 7 time champion Manos! Alex (manos younger brother) was very lovely too. My wife and I have never sat on a horse and were beginners.. felt very very safe and the photos taken by Barbara will remain very special to me and my partner, thank you. For all 1st timers and those experienced in riding, this is worth it!!!!!!!

Wonderful first time horse riding! The instructors were great with teaching us how to ride the horse, we headed down to Black Sand beach which was magical. Took some photos on the horse to remember our experience. Thank you Barbara and Manos! Would recommend if you would like to try horse riding in a gorgeous setting.
