Situated by the entrance to the beach of Porto Ferro, the preferred place for horse riding excursions. It’s right next to Lago Baratz, the only natural lake on the island. This is where you arrive after having ridden across the spectacular panoramic sand dunes of Porto Ferro. – Always surrounded by the beautiful and unique macchia mediterranea (Mediterranean maquis).

It is a true joy for them to introduce tourists and visitors to the experience and wonders of horseback hikes through the country side. The centre’s horsers are all well trained for the selected tracks and excursions, and you can choose a horse to fit your specific needs. Whether you are a beginner looking for a calm introduction to riding, or an expert just wanting to gallop on the beach.
Before your trip, the team dedicate time for you to learn how to approach your horse and get acquainted with it. This aspect is essential to create contact and closeness with your horse, but also to over come the first moments of intimidation when beginning to ride. It is a big part of creating the best possible day for the guests. Once you feel ready to ride, the group leaves the centre and it’s surrounding pine forest of Porto Ferro and head for the open beach. Rabbits and wild boar, are frequent visitors on your hike.
