Finikia tours – Daily tour
We will pick you up in the morning (around 08:30), just a step outside your hotel and start heading to the village of Finikia, where we will warm welcome you in our premises! You will have the time to discover the amazing scenery around, take a look at the horses & enjoy the coffee offered. After that, we shall start our horse riding lesson, where you will have the chance to find out your riding skills. By that time, we will assist you and give you the horses. For guests who don’t fancy riding a horse, you can certainly sit on the wagon, relax and enjoy the nature! After an 1 hour riding, we make a stop at the top of the mountain to stretch for a bit, drink some soft drink and fruit offered by the guides & take some pictures with the breathtaking view. After this break, you will get back to your horses and ride back to the stables for 1 hour, where we will serve you our full Greek Traditional lunch made exclusively for you. Our lunch consists of several starters such as Tzatziki, fried vegetables taken from our garden, etc., main courses such as meatballs, French fries, etc. and desserts. You may combine your lunch with our homemade wine & raki (Free of charge). After enjoying your lunch, any of our guests will be able to have a small ride in the ring. At the end of our day, we will start driving back to your hotels at about 12:30-13:00 (depending on the size of the group).
