Full description
Begin your horse riding experience at the stables in Megalochori. Ride along the paths of the vineyards and see their traditional layout. Continue along the south trails that lead to the secluded black sandy beach. These paths were created by the volcanic eruption that formed the island.  As you ride you will see small gorges and ravines carved into the volcanic rock and can marvel at the unique Santorini landscape. Arrive at the black sandy beach to see a long volcanic beach with impressive rock formation cliffs in the background. Ride along the beach and then head to the top of the hill to enjoy the panoramic view of the beach and the trails.  During the ride commemorative photos will be taken of you and your horse, capturing your memorable experiences at all the best places.

      Wonderful experience and worth it! We were able to cover a lot of terrain which made an incredible overview of Megalochori. Riding by the beach was extremely beautiful and the guides were quick to take photos for all that joined to have a memorable picture. The horses were well taken care of. Don’t wear anything fancy as the trail is very dusty and be sure to use sunscreen.

      This was the absolute highlight of my trip to Santorini , couldn’t have asked for a better horse riding experience. All the trainers were amazing and so friendly from the get go , they gave a brief reminder for anyone who needed it and showed us how to use the reigns etc. While riding we got an amazing tour and lots of historical background, we went along a gorgeous beach and our guide took amazing pictures for us without us even asking ! Would definitely recommend doing this even if you aren’t the most experienced rider as they are super patient. 10/10 !

      This was the most amazing experience of our trip, a little nervous at first as hadn’t been on a horse in a while but our guide was very experienced and reassured us. The horses are beautiful and calm. While the scenery you see on the trek is spectacular accompanied by the guides knowledge and stories of the area. I would highly recommend.
