Enjoy the gorgeous scenery and views of the Corfiot countryside on your way to the Avlaki Bay. The stables are located in a shady olive grove by the sea. Your ride sets off across the wild headland and along Avlaki's lanes and tracks towards the beach. The trail offers riders some magnificent views of the beautiful peninsula of Erimitis and passes through paths bordered by many beautiful trees, flowers and shrubs and a wide variety of wild herbs including bay, oregano, thyme, mint and myrtle. From a vantage point you'll also have the chance to admire the Albanian coastline and enjoy a unique view of Caparelli Island which houses an old Venetian lighthouse. You'll then ride down to a pretty beach of the area where you'll stop for few minutes before retracing the same route, which will bring you back to the riding center. Here you'll be helped to dismount from your horse and enjoy a cool and refreshing drink. Continue to the long sandy beach of Avlaki (Roda) for some free time. There are facilities for swimming, sunbathing and water sports; sun beds and umbrellas are available to rent on your own from local concessionaires. A few steps from the beach, you'll find sea front taverns where you can enjoy a snack or refreshment (at your own expense).

Wear Long Pants!
My husband and I just loved this excursion. The trail leaders were so great and accommodating. Thankfully they had extra pairs of track pants that I could slip on over my shorts. The trails have lots of thorny brush around them as well as bugs and I would highly suggest wearing long pants for protection and obviously a full shoe instead of a flip flop or sandal. The beaches are VERY rocky so I would also suggest bringing boat shoes or Chaco's to make it easier to get into the water. Overall, a great excursion that led us through beautiful olive groves with lovely ocean views!
