Horse riding day tours in the Eastern Carpathians

Horse riding tours


Discover and ramble through the rolling hills and wild flower meadows or climb up to the pastures in the mountains through old pine forests, pure creeks and nearby isolated sheepfolds. During these day tours you can experience both the freedom of horseback riding in Transylvania and the Carpathian Mountains wilderness. Our horse riding tours and holidays are located in the Eastern Carpathians, in the surroundings of the small towns of Gheorgheni, Miercurea Ciuc and Odorheiu Secuiesc and we offer tours that suit all levels and ages.

If you are an intermediate rider or above, ride atop a strong and secure Lippizaner or Shagya Arab renowned for their energetic temperament and impressive stamina, as you explore the fascinating local flora and fauna.

If you are a beginner rider with good physical condition or one looking for an authentic Carpathian experience, challenge yourself with our Nomad Tour with locally bred horses. The tour starts from the 1375 m high Kovacspeter ridge, where dispersed summer shelters and weekend houses can be found and the trails follow the dense forest roads leading to mountain peaks and along ridges.

If you want something unique in Romania, explore the rolling hills of the Harghita Mountains atop the gentle Icelandic horse and enjoy the Icelandic breed’s friendly disposition and calm manner which makes them a delight for anyone to ride, while their unique gaits provide a reamrkably smooth way to travel over rugged or snowy terrain, making long hours in the saddle more comfortable.

All rides are lead through unmarked terrain, but your experienced bilingual guide knows the trails like the back of his hand so you can be guaranteed an insider's tour.
