Description

Our tour includes hotel pick up and drop off, please see relevant pick up times and simply note your hotel name in the relevant field.

A unique chance to experience the fun of horse riding and to enjoy a lovely ride up in the mountain at Finikia with amazing scenery .   

There are 2 programs to choose : Daytime rides or Early Evening rides. 

Regardless of which ride you choose to take, you will enjoy the peace and quiet as you ride up the mountain through fragrant olive groves and take in the amazing views of nature. When you reach the top it’s time for both you and your horse to take a little rest. Here you’ll be served a refreshing drink (juice, wine or raki) and fresh fruits.  

This is a brilliant opportunity to take some great photos of the surrounding countryside and prove to your friends back home that you made it on horseback! After the break it’s time to hit the trail again, wending your way back to civilization, relishing in the gorgeous scenery and taking pictures of your friends and family.  

Back at the ranch a delicious traditional lunch, or if on the evening ride, a barbecue, await you. Over a glass of wine (or three), and a drop of Raki, let the ranch hands entertain you while the pain in the large muscle group on which you have been sitting sorts itself out....Take a stroll around the ranch and bid your horse goodbye with a last hug before heading back to your hotel and a well-deserved rest at the end of this most memorable day.

Our only but nice tour !

   

What a wonderful experience...! We were a group of 6 friends travelling from Bristol to Crete, I used to live many years in Crete, prior our moving to the UK, I knew the tour but not the company, we were happy for a great service and staid out of beer for a change...
