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.

Manos, Alex and Barbara were so amazing! They made me and my wife’s riding experience so special. Manos took so many great photos and videos which we will forever cherish as we look back on our honeymoon. Thank you so much Manos, Alex and Barbara! You made this activity the best we experienced in Santorini. If anyone is considering this activity, don’t consider any longer! Just book it! You will make lifelong memories with the pictures to remember it by and without the stress of having to take them yourself! Tareq :)

The owners (two brothers) are so sweet and you can tell how much they love the horses. We did a private tour and Alex was amazing. He led us to the beach talking about all the local produce growing on the way. When we got to the beach he took so many photos of us with our horses which left us with many memories of our experience. I’d highly recommend this to anyone!

Marcos and Barbara were absolutely amazing! They are such a lovely couple and love what they do. They went out of their way to make sure everyone in the group felt comfortable and had a great time with the horses. They even held on to our phones for us and took the absolute best photos of us during the experience. This was our favorite activity of our trip and is an absolute must do activity.
