Our trekking weeks on horseback are a very special highlight and an incredible experience. We sleep in typical Agriturismi / Farmhouses, dine as God in Italy and enjoy the tuscan countryside, friendly italian people, the breathtaking landscape and of course our reliable Criollos. We stay two days in Bivignano and spend 5 days at the Trek. During these Bivignano days we make sure we find the right horse for you and check your riding ability. You don’t have to be an experienced rider, but need to be in good shape and have the desire to spend a holiday with nice people and friendly horses. Experienced guides will lead you through this unique adventure, trekking groups consist of 5-7 people, your luggage will normally be brought in the evening.
On Monday we leave Bivignano and come back Friday Afternoon. We ride all day long and carry lunch in saddle bags, and of course, some necessary equipment. We ride 5-7 hours a day through this beautiful country, including stops for lunch and some rests for the horses. In the evening we enjoy a meal of traditional local dishes and wines. The treks lead us to Molin Nuovo, Alpe di Poti, Toppole, Badia San Veriana, Ponte alla Piera, direction Lago di Montedoglio, passing Anghiari, Citerna, Monterchi and back to Bivignano or to Monte Dogana, Castiglion Fiorentino, Monte Sant’Egidio, Cortona to Lake Trasimeno, Monte San Maria Tiberina and back to Bivignano. You look over Valdichiana and the Tibervalley, ride on etruscan ways trough mediterranean forest, see beautiful churches, nice houses and roman streets. The landscape is picturesque with olive trees, oaks, chestnuts and pines. In 2016 we organised a 2 week trail to Rimini and back, it was a big adventure! And in 2017 we rode from Rufina to Bivignano - on the Assisi Trail. 2018 now we enjoyed the beautiful landscape of Casentino, 150km on horseback, it was an unforgettable adventure for horses and guest and we are always happy to share these special moments with them!
The costs for the above trails are including full board, 7 nights, horse for the entire week, luggage transport, organization, and a lot of fun - excl arrival and departure, different or additional drinks as well as possible - voluntary - tips. Please get in touch with us to get detailed information.
Every year we organise a new trail, the 2019 trek will start in Bivignano. We will have more details in wintertime, when we check out the ways and the farmhouses. Normally we ride ca. 150km on roman pilgrimages and enjoy the stunning scenery, the well trained horses/mules, and the culinary highlights from this country. We'll be back with more news soon...
