Sicily on horsebackSicily, Italy

Scattered across the Sicilian landscape, from Nebrodi and Madonie, to Palermo, Mount Etna and Alcantara, are herds of native Sicilian horses and Sanfratellano wild horses galloping through the wild.

So, what better way to explore the hidden corners of Sicily's natural setting than on horseback. There are plenty of schools and companies that offer riding tours from mountains to the sea, including those that also offer dressage, endurance and vaulting.

With Sicily Horse Tours, you can trot your way around Sicily and Madonie Natural Park on hour-long excursions to two- or six-day treks. Starting in Madonie, your meeting point will be a twenty-room farm house (Tenuta Luogo Marchese) or the five-star Abbazia Santa Anastasia surrounded by a Relais winery.

Lead by experienced guides, you can explore Castelbuono, Gorges of Tiberius, Zurrica, and many more on one to eight hour rides, or trek the Madonie mountains over two days, or take on a six day tour from Cefalu to Corleone or Etna, or coast to coast.
