Horseback riding in Sicily

Horseback riding in Sicily available all year round! Sicily is the largest of the Italian islands, one of the pearls of Southern Italy to be discovered and experienced through a series of horse riding itineraries dedicated to nature, history and traditions. Mild winter temperature allow on the coast for beach rides and unforgettable swimming with your horse; spring and autumn offer pleasant temperatures for horse riding in colourful pastures, vineyards, olive and lemon groves until as late as November; summer time, you can easily avoid the high temperature exploring lush and ancient forests in the Northern mountainous area or riding up to the volcano craters.

This incredibly charming region has mountains, hills, the sea with its incredible crystal colour and, above all, Mount Etna (3342 m), the largest active volcano in Europe. Overall Sicily has seven World Heritage UNESCO sites. With our horse riding holidays you will be able to visit two of them, Mount Etna and the Archaeological Area of Agrigento, and ride across four regional Parks with unique natural features. The abundance of ancient settlements, historical villages, important prehistorical and archeological sites are a visible sign of a long past of history, myths and legends. This is a land of strong culture and traditions, with warm and welcoming people and an exquisite cuisine with multicultural influences. What could be better than discovering all of this on horseback?

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe wrote: “To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is to not have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything”. We offer several horse riding holidays in the North-East of the island, from 7 days adventure trails to a stationary programme with daily mini trails. Pick your holiday and come and join us on this gorgeous island!

In 2016 The British Museum organized an exhibition on Sicily:

The largest island in the Mediterranean. The home of Mount Etna.
A cultural centre of the ancient and medieval world.

Sicily has been shaped by waves of conquest and settlement by different peoples over 4,000 years. Since the 8th century BC, Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans all settled or invaded the island, lured by its fertile lands and strategic location. Over time, this series of conquests forged a cultural identity unlike any other.
