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.

This was an amazing experience. We had Manos as our guide and he was the absolute sweetest. He took tons of pictures for us and made us feel so comfortable on the ride. They will even schedule a transfer for you there and back if you need. This is a must book if you are in Santorini!

My and my now Fiancé really really enjoyed this experience. From booking the tour, payment and even the ease of finding the location was stress free. The instructors made us feel welcome, wanted to know about home life and even introduced us to the history behind their business and horses. I don’t know anything about horses and their welfare, but from my experience of that day they looked, were treat and acted immaculately. I’ve no previous riding history but I felt so much better and at ease with instruction from the instructors with clear and concise instructions as my horse decided it was hungry mid tour and decided to start eating the trees. Me and my partner had plenty of photos taken off us, were checked upon regularly and even with my partner having previous riding experience, were treated equally and professionally. I would recommend this activity to anyone who wishes to do this, even for those that may be a little nervous, you will not regret these beautiful creatures.

Riding on a horses back into the Sunset was simply amazing! The staff was great, very friendly, communicative and helpful, and the horses well trained. Our “personal” guide was Alex, but I can’t forget about Manos and Barbara (who guided other people in our group) - I firmly recommend asking for any of them! Ah, and because you cannot take any bags with you while riding, they keep your phone and take astonishing pictures of you all along the way. Wish to do it again soon.
