Crete Star Trail

Crete Star Trail

Ride Overview

The Crete Star Ride radiates out from your friendly hosts’ very comfortable hotel to visit different parts of the island each day.  There are fascinating archeological sites to visit which are some of the best Greece has to offer.  The trails vary from steep mountain paths to fertile agricultural valleys where there are olive groves, citrus fruits and other crops.  Your sure-footed horses will take you to the tops of mountains, giving you stunning views of the picturesque landscape and a glimpse of the Mediterranean Sea sparkling in the distance.  After a day in the saddle you will appreciate the best cuisine and wines Greece has to offer.

The Crete Star Ride is for those who would like to relax in one location for a week and take guided tours each day from a fixed location.  It saves the hassle of packing your bag all the time and getting installed in a new place.  From this one location you can still see much of the surrounding countryside which offers such varied trails for horses. The central location of your hotel allows interesting trail rides at varied paces in every direction so that you are seeing totally new country every day.
