Horse riding creates a sense of freedom that is rare to find in other sports. This 7 day adventure through Northern Greece's lonely, rugged and open landscapes will provide the vistas for the heart and the mind to lift off.

This family of horse passionates have been keeping and breeding horses since 1985 as well as competing and winning numerous cross-country races, and they are eager to share their expertise and passion with you.

Your adventure starts at their wild west village ranch, just 39 km from Salonica, where they have set up an agrotourism ranch entirely in the image of a Western Wild West village, complete with a saloon, a blacksmith, the horses of course and much, much more!

Your first and final night are spent at the village it self, where you will sleep in authentic looking western log cabins in the shape of Western road houses or even train wagons.

Other days and nights will find you on the horse, with wild and almost untouched landscapes surrounding you, as the group crosses small rivers and climbs uphill and downhill. You will gallop on the safest parts of the trail and nobody will wants this magnificent adventure to end.

In the evenings we either build our tents and have dinner at the campfire (two nights) while the horses sleep directly beside us or stay at a cosy hotel on a natural reserve lake where a sumptuous feast will await us.

Day 1 Arrival, get to know your hosts and other trailriders. We get to know our horses on a short ride in the surrounding area of the ranch. In between you have the option to try archery and air gun shooting. Welcome-BBQ on the open campfire and overnight in the western city.

Day 2 The village of Pontokerasia is the first milestone on our trails, which we achieve on fractious mountain pathways and through deep oak woods. The panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and villages up to Bulgaria - when the weather is clear, accompany us almost the whole time. The local hotel offers us the accommodation for the night.

Day 3 We follow our path and enjoy breathtaking views in all directions. The horses carry us safely over all mountain pathways and are looking forward to the many gallops through the lonely landscape, where we always have the feeling to be far away from Europe in the USA or Australia. In the evening we reach our hotel directly at the lake, where a opulent dinner in the taverna and cozy rooms are waiting for us. The horses stay close by.

Day 4 The hotel offers a variety of possibilities to spend the day. Lake Kerkini is one of the most important wetlands of Greece and Southern Europe with a very rich flora and fauna. 300 species of birds, including several worldwide endangered bird species as well as 27 reptile and 12 amphibian species have been recorded in the area. On the shores of the lake you find the largest number of buffaloes in Greece.The area around lake Kerkini was declared a national nature reserve and protected by the Ramsar Convention. The lake is a paradise for birdwatchers and nature photographers. A jeep tour or an excursion with canoes on the lake can be booked directly at own expense. Or we just relax and enjoy the lovely landscape. Overnight stay in the hotel.

Day 5 After the free day, we and the horses are fresh again and we will start to make our way back to the ranch which will take us another 2 days. Wild and almost untouched landscape surrounds us, as we cross small rivers and climbing uphill and downhill. In the evening we build our tents and have dinner at the campfire. The horses sleep directly beside us.

Day 6 After another full day of horse riding we get back to the western city, where we celebrate our passed trail adventure with a delicious BBQ. Overnight in the western city.
