Horseback riding in Ikaria: lessons and tours
The wild mountainous landscape of Ikaria softened by the deep blue and crystal clear water of the Aegean Sea makes horse riding on the island a very unique and adventurous experience. Ride through picturesque sceneries, discover the various ecosystems and enjoy the infinite peace that is palpable wherever you go (or rather ride in this case) in Ikaria!
Whether you are an experienced rider or a beginner we welcome you to try horse riding in Ikaria throughout the whole year. The island has something spectacular to offer in all seasons for kids and adults alike which are worth exploring on a horseback.
We offer horse riding lessons and tours for individuals and small groups alike. Furthermore we are also happy to organize multi-day programs upon request with a series of lessons or tours that take you to various paths on the island every day. You can ride through green forests, rocky landscapes, beaches and mountain villages.
You will be assisted by a licensed rider with several decades of experience who makes sure that you are safe at all times. The exercises and the pace of the lessons are always adjusted to the level of experience of the participants.
The horse club is located in a scenic location on the north side of Ikaria at the bottom of the mountains with a spectacular view of the Aegean Sea. The premises give place to a riding arena, a stable, a paddock and a friendly sitting area where one can relax after riding.
All riders follow the same routine which starts with grooming, saddle followed by riding and taking care of the horses afterwards. All necessary equipment is provided at the location so you don't have to bring anything with you. We only ask for your attentiveness in respect of the animals, the environment and your instructor during the lessons.
