Take to the saddle this summer in Europe

April 27, 2017

If you’re looking for an activity holiday where you combine light exercise while leisurely taking in some of Europe’s most stunning scenery, why not consider a horse riding break? Whatever your level of experience, we have three very different, excellent value and beautiful horse riding holidays in Croatia, Ireland, and Sardinia.

Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

Staying 3 nights at the 4* Hotel Korana Srakovcic just 45 mins from Zagreb, our horse riding experience in Croatia comprises a riding school for beginners and treks through the 100-year-old forest and around the Plitvice Lakes National Park with its waterfalls and limestone canyons. Breakfast and evening meals set on a stunning terrace overlooking the Korana river are included. When you’re not out learning to ride or trekking, relax in the wellness centre and swimming pool. Available from €425pp.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland

The Ring of Kerry around the Iveragh Peninsula in southwest Ireland is a mystical & unspoilt region that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Our short horse riding break in Kerry is anchored in the seaside village of Rossbeigh, staying 3 nights at the 3* Kerry Ocean Lodge just 40mins from Kerry airport. Together with an experienced guide, enjoy trekking through inland paths and along the Blue Flag beach of Rossbeigh, just a stone’s throw from the hotel. With the Dingle Mountains to the north and Iveragh Mountains to the south, the scenery is breath taking. Available from €466pp the package includes all meals.

Arborea, Sardinia

With nearly 2,000km of coastline, sandy beaches and a mountainous interior crossed with hiking trails, the rugged landscape of Sardinia is perfect for a 5-day horse riding holiday. Our horse riding package in Sardinia including lessons on a half-board basis is both luxurious and great value. The Horse Country Resort Congress & Spa has four restaurants and 2 pools. Ideal for horse lovers, this break includes lessons, rides on the beach, through the pinewood forest, a trek to Pink Flamingo's pond and the ancient fishing village of Marceddi. 1.45hrs from Alghero Fertilia Airport, we advise renting a car for this unforgettable experience, available from €534pp.
