Itinerary for Sea, Sun and Moonlight Ride on Crete

This is an ideal combination for those who travel together with non-riders or whose partner joins 1 of the other sport activities in the hotel like golf, mountain climbing, or paragliding.

The program includes 6 days of horseback riding with a total of 12 hours.
During the hot summer months we ride during the cool morning or evening hours. Usually, the morning ride is catered to less experienced riders (walk, trot and short canters - riding speed is adjusted to the level of the riders) and the evening ride is the more active ride, only suitable for riders who are able to control their horses in all 3 gaits.

We ride in the remote Cretan country side with secluded hectares of olive groves ribboned with mountain paths, trotting through valleys with Greek villages were time stands still.
This program allows you to ride along the waters of Lake Aposelemis, ride through the valley of Langada, cross the traditional Greek village of Avdou with its Byzantine church, climb up the mountain to get an excellent view over the stables, ride across Kerm Oak forest to visit the mysterious Church of the Saint Fotini and canter over the plateau of Mochos.
Hear nothing but the wind, the soft tinkle of the goat bells, and the horse shoes rumbling on the ground.
