Overview

Due to our life philosophy of embracing every moment, we take immense pleasure in horse riding through picturesque landscapes, immersing ourselves in the unplanned and authentic experiences that come our way. However, our true desire is for you to discover the genuine essence of Sicily, embracing its pace of life. 

Alongside thrilling horse rides, we venture into off-the-beaten-path locations that remain hidden from typical tourist routes. Our journey involves delving into the intriguing tales of these places, forming a deep connection with nature, and relishing delectable meals in diverse towns and villages. This carefully crafted experience caters to both horse riders and non-riders alike, making it a perfect adventure for everyone in the group.

Explore the breath-taking Sicilian hills on horseback
You will enjoy the beauty of Sicilian landscape on horseback, seeing spectacular scenery, feeling freedom and space not easily found in Europe.
Discover the "Godfather" village
You will visit Corleone, the town that is best known for its churches and its connection with some of the most powerful families of the mafia. We will learn the story about the rise of the Mafia in Sicily.
Enjoy local unique cuisine
Sicilian cuisine is another level of perfection. We will try different restaurant dishes, home cooked food, local wines and liquores.

Tour provider's comments

We have been organising horse riding holidays in Sicily for the past 15 years….Whatever your type of ride, we’re confident we can provide it.

The typical day’s ride is approximately 2.5/3 hours in the morning after breakfast.
On one of the days, we ride to a friend’s country house over the hills (3.5 hours ride going, 1.5 hours return).

I have lived and worked in 5 countries and travelled a fair bit. Been living in Sicily running my own tourist organisation for the past 17 years but raced cars all over Italy for over 20 years prior, gathering knowledge and info about Italy and Sicily in particular. I love history at a personal level, and believe holidays are most fun with a mix of fun, evenings out, sight seeing and adventures.
