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.

Wonderful experience!!! The guide was so great at making sure we were comfortable. He took hundreds of photos on my phone and got some incredible shots. It was a beautiful sunset to see on horseback on a private beach…doesn’t get much more romantic than that!

Had the most amazing experience with efippos riding centre! Went with my mum as riding along the beach was something we always wanted to do and we both couldn't recommend them enough! They could tell how nervous I was at first and couldn't be more reassuring to make me feel so comfortable and at ease! Such a lovely family, would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone! One experience I'll never forget, thank you all again🥰

These guys were so accommodating! Our cruise boat delayed our disembarking and we missed our scheduled time. I rang them and they fitted us in the next group and arranged for a driver to collect us (at our cost, of course!) Thoroughly recommend if you are going to Santorini to do this!
