Horseback riding is an integral part of the traditional Transylvanian scene and the naturally gentle Icelandic horse provides excellent riding opportunities. We have chosen the Icelandic Horse because of its gentle, friendly disposition and calm manner that make them a delight for anyone to ride. Their two unique gaits, the tölt and the pace, provide a remarkably smooth way to travel over rugged terrain, making long hours in the saddle more comfortable. The tölt is what makes riding Icelandic such a pleasure, with its flowing 4-beat gait providing the sensation of floating while being seated firmly in the saddle. We organize half day or one day trips in the surrounding mountains.For our prices check our Tours and Offers.

Leave your stressful life behind and explore a hidden place away from the tourist rush and off the beaten path.
