Discover Corfu on horseback


The Thinking Traveller has teamed up with the Dimitris stables near Avlaki, situated in the north of Corfu and home to one of the loveliest beaches on the island, to offer equestrian experiences for riders of all ages and abilities. Here below are two of our most popular. For more information and prices, please call +44 (0) 203 603 4478 or email  

Erimites nature reserve ride

Level: beginner
Duration: approx. 1 hr 10 minutes
Time: 9am, 11am or 5pm, daily*

This ride is aimed at novice riders and takes place entirely at walking pace. You will explore the tracks and trails of the Erimites nature reserve, which is well known for its beauty and rich variety of flora and fauna. The gentle pace allows ample opportunity for admiring the stunning sea views, and you will also ride down to a secluded beach which affords the perfect setting for a few holiday snaps. Safety is paramount on this excursion: the ride is fully supervised at all times, avoids all roads, and younger children and nervous riders will be escorted.


Secret beaches ride

Level: advanced
Duration: approx. 1 hr 40 minutes
Time: 9am

This ride is suitable for more experienced riders who have already mastered trotting and cantering, and are able to ride up and down some demanding tracks and trails. You will have the opportunity to ride at a good variety of different speeds and explore some beaches that remain undiscovered by the majority of tourists. This ride begins at 9am, as horses and riders alike will find conditions a little too hot later on in the day!


Or why not tailor-make your own riding experience?

If the above rides do not cater for your experience level or if you have something specific in mind, we would be glad to create a horse riding excursion that fits your requirements. For example, if you’re a honeymoon couple, how about a romantic ride followed by a champagne breakfast?
