Full description

Embark on a horse riding adventure in Santorini. Glide along the shores of Vlichada on horseback and take in the views of this volcanic beach. Stop for photos and enjoy the support of an on-hand guide.

Begin your horse riding adventure by having an expert show you the basics with all the necessary equipment. After starting your journey at the magical dunes of Caldera Beach, head to the Santorini fields to admire the unblemished beauty of nature, taking in panoramic views of the Aegean Sea.

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 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.

Barbara and her family are so fun and welcoming Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned pro, this is such a fun experience that couldn’t have been better. They have experience and love for what they do and it’s felt throughout your trip. Had the cutest horse, Coco, who was slow and steady my entire ride. 10/10 Would recommend and will be booking on my next trip to Santorini!

Manos, Barbara, and Alex were absolutely amazing and kind. You feel as if you are supporting true local business, and they make you feel as if you are at home away from home. You can tell horses mean everything to them, and it shows in the experience. Such positive people! They took about 30 photos of us / videos on top of that. Using our phones, which was fine with us! You feel safe on the horses, this made beginners like me and my wife feel good. The black sand, the beach, you feel like your in a 007 movie. Book this!!! Don’t overlook it!!

Manors, Barbara, and Alex were absolutely amazing! I have a bit of riding experience so was paired with Kazaldo who is an absolute sweetheart. So many wonderful photos, the beach was amazing, and the horses were incredible. I had the chance to trot and ride a bit on my own which was amazing as well while they took great care of the other beginner riders in the group. Highly, highly recommend - I jumped off and immediately asked to go again. :)
