Enjoy Unforgettable Horse Riding In Santorini!
There are a couple of companies offering horse riding tours on the island:
Santorini Horse Riding – Megalochori
This family business based in Megalochori is passionate about horse riding and helping visitors to the island to have unforgettable experiences. The stable is home to fifteen horses. They are passionately committed to providing excellent care to the animals. Training and equipment are also provided before you go on your tour. Tours include horse riding in Megalochori, a stunning, quiet traditional village. You can also ride to Eros beach (most people dream about horse riding on the beach), and the popular Caldera tour. Here you can ride a horse around the edge of the volcano (not for the faint-hearted)! You can add wine tasting and a meal to your tour to make it extra special. You can also try donkey riding (don’t worry – they are looked after well by the family).
“My fiance and I did the 2 hour Eros Beach Tour and it was amazing! The scenery was so beautiful and romantic and the guide took really awesome pictures of us at several spots. Our friends are having their honeymoon in Greece next year and we told them they should check out Santorini Horse Riding as a result. Definitely worth the price.” – hproxmysox3
“A friend recommended this and it was totally worth the price. We did the Caldera sunset beach tour and it was spectacular. He views of the beach and the experience of being on a horse was truly romantic. The staff were super friendly and they picked us up close to our hotel so it was convenient. Highly recommended!” – smileyfacegrace
Santo Horse Riding – Akrotiri
Open since 1997, Santo Horse Riding based in Akrotiri offers visitors the chance to experience horse riding safely. Guided tours take place on their farm property. Owned by brothers who love horses (they also breed them), this is a place where both beginners and experienced riders can enjoy horse riding in a safe environment. Horse riding lessons are also available. You can also do a two hour tour from Akrotiri to the picturesque chapel of St Anne (Agia Anna). Then continue to Vlychada beach (famous for its volcanic cliffs) and Theros beach before heading back to the farm. This is a great place for beginners or inexperienced riders to experience horse riding in Santorini.
“First off, thank you to Yanna for being a great guide. She taught us how to ride the horses and was lovely company throughout the ride. So we went around some vineyards, and down to the beach…the scenery was beautiful and the horses were adorable. Yanna stopped at every picturesque place and took pictures of us with our camera. As a result it was a memorable experience.” – Farah M
“Fantastic couple of hours. Experienced guide (Alex), very calm and assuring (we had very little riding experience). Horses were great and had some character. Trails/route was beautiful, mixing landscapes between rock/beach/sea/mountains. Therefore I very highly recommend this experience.” – rN1210
