Sea, Sun and Moonlight Ride on Crete

Sea, Sun and Moonlight Ride on Crete
Crete Greece

Enjoy the Greek lifestyle- the bright blue sea, the golden sun and tastiest food!  Relax on the beach or visit the ancient sites!
Crete is an island in the sun, surrounded by the clear, blue sea and has a rough and wild landscape with mountains reaching 2,5 km high. You can ride within the silence of nature on the tiny island covered with olive-trees, beautiful and natural landscapes, historical places with timeless myths and astonishing tracks to follow. Swim in the ocean and dry on the deserted beach.

The moment you arrive on the hillside, you experience quiet serenity and have a tremendous panoramic view.  Under us stretches the Langada Valley with the Apposelemis River crossing through, above us rise the red coloured peaks of the Dikti Mountains. Birds of prey, like the Griffon Vulture, glide along these peaks. The estate is surrounded by a protected Kerm Oak forest and the olive groves stretch down into the valley. On the estate, many protected trees and flowers can be found, many different types of beautiful orchids grow.
This riding program is ideal for the equestrian traveler whose family does not horseback ride. There are golf courses, paragliding, hiking trails and mountain climbing close by!

We combine a relaxing and sun filled holiday with quality horseback action. During the week, we ride out for beautiful 2 hour trips through the Langada Area.

We ride daily through the valley of Langada, crossing the traditional Greek village of Avdou with its Byzantine church.
Enjoy an excellent view over the stables and the Langada valley once we ride up the mountainside.
Journey through the Kerm Oak forest to visit the mysterious Church of the Saint Fotini which is hidden deep into a cave. We return home by quick canters over the plateau of Mochos.

This active holiday combines all the good things of the Cretan life, relaxing on the beach or swimming in the pool, visiting the ancient sites, meeting the friendly locals, enjoying the Greek food and even taking our 4 footed friends for a unique and relaxing ride during the cool evening hours.
