2-hour beach ride (suitable for inexperienced riders)
At a walking pace, we tour the local area, along tracks past fields and streams, through the forest alongside a lagoon, maybe seeing some of the abundant wildlife, birds, insects and all the local fauna. Take a break (and some photos) on the cliff tops, then continue through the forest then along the beach, before making our way back to the ranch.
Half-day rides at forest & beach (suitable for riders with some ability)
Combining the best elements of our short tour, with a longer beach ride, a refreshment stop and the opportunity to see much more of the stunning scenery and protected Gunluk forests in the areas around our ranch. Dependent upon rider ability and the guidance of the tour leader, there may be some short trots and if the party is made up of good riders then possibly a canter along the beach could take place.
Full Day tours (suitable for RIDERS only)
Our favorite adventures, we start early in the morning, ride around the local area, head towards the mountains, either riding through the village lanes or via the beach.
We may ride past a local trout farm, along village tracks up to the foothills with a picnic halt by the side of a stream. Then a return past villagers working in the fields, followed by a leisurely walk down the river on our way home.
New! 2-day tour available now! Ideal for long weekends, but departure is possible any day from Tuesday to Sunday (depending on availability).
During the warm months, we are offering now a wonderful two day tour on horseback.
We start at 8am in the morning leaving the ranch and heading through small Turkish villages towards the mountains. Passing a trout farm we stop for a traditional Turkish breakfast at the river side before we continue our ride climbing slowly higher into the mountains. The surrounding forest offers some shade. The way offers various possibilities for trotting. We cross the river and reach Yesil Vadi for lunch and a first refreshing bath in the natural pool with crystal clear water. In the afternoon we ride further up the mountains to enjoy the marvelous nature before we return to Yesil Vadi for the night where we sleep in tents. Those not afraid of heights can sleep high up in the trees enjoying the sound of water. For diner you can select your preferred fish in the pond. On day two we leave this picturesque place after breakfast with fresh homemade bread and leave the mountains on the other side of the valley. We will then continue the ride along the beach with possibilities for trot and canter (depending on the availability of riders) after a break for lunch. At the end of the tour there is a possibility to swim with your horse – a truly unforgettable experience.
Optional: you can stay the night before the ride at our ranch and already get acquainted with our horses and stay with us after the return if you don’t want to separate from your new 4-legged friend yet.
What to bring: Swimming clothes, towel, riding trousers and closed (sport) shoes. Spare clothes, sandals and cosmetics depending on your personal needs.
Advice: For day and multiple day tours it is important that you can control your horse in all paces and that you can ride for 6 hours without difficulties. Should you not be sure, we recommend joining us first on one of our shorter rides and then come for a day or multiple day tour. And for those who want to improve their skills, we also offer private riding lessons at an affordable price.
