The other 1.5 hour route is slight more difficult moderate to hard and is for clients that have some basic previous riding experience and are slightly more adventurous or active. We once again pass through the narrow cobblestone streets of Megalo Papigo to reach a dirt track that takes us towards the abandoned village of Ano Klidonia. After a small stream crossing we veer off the main trail and head towards the little church of Profitis Ilias. This ride offers a variety of landscapes, from drier rocky cliffs, to green lush oak forest and to amazing views of the land around us. As we loop around we come upon some beautiful old fields that act like balconies offering us a tremendous view of the villages Vikos and Aristi and of course the Gorge and the impressive cliff faces. There are a few places for cantering on this ride as well. (This ride is for competent riders, we do not lead any horses on this ride)
All rides are weather dependent! (we don’t go out in rainstorms, extreme wind or icy ground conditions.) Rides with slight rain or snow can still be conducted.
We offer varying rides according to riders capabilities, age, and fitness. All rides are in nature following goat tracks, dirt roads, open fields and small forest trails and all of them offer incredible views of the area!
We also offer multiple day rides which can be arranged by request. Details can be sent on request via email and we can alter the routes according to rider preference. These rides are not available on busy holidays (Oct 28th, Christmas – New years, Easter, August) and must be booked a few weeks in advance.
