Full description

Imagine the thrill of riding on the seashore among salt marshes, flocks of pink flamingos and unspoilt landscapes. This two-hour horseback ride among the salt pans of Sant'Antioco will take you to discover a Site of Community Importance (SCI) in south-west Sardinia.

Riding your horse you will cover a loop circuit of about 13 km mostly on the beach, admiring the islands of Sant'Antioco and San Pietro, among white salt mountains and rich Mediterranean vegetation. It will be a dream excursion!

What we will do

We will meet at our riding school in San Giovanni Suergiu (SU ) at the time chosen for the activity. Here we will be assigned the most suitable horse according to our level of experience and we will get on the saddle to begin the ride.

Leaving the stables, we will ride towards the sea through the countryside, among almond groves, eucalyptus trees and Mediterranean scrub, until we reach the Saline di Sant'Antioco. This wetland is a Site of Community Importance (SCI) in Sardinia, protected for its incredible biodiversity.

We will ride along tongues of land and water along the Gulf of Palmas, amid glittering mountains of sea salt, enjoying the surreal view of theIsland of Sant'Antioco, theBull and Cow Island to the south, theIsland of San Pietro with Carloforte to the north, and the entire Sulcis area. The more experienced can also embark on a few stretches of galloping on the beach.

During our walk we will be able to spot pink flamingos, white herons, black-winged stilts and marsh harriers, the extraordinary specimens that inhabit these areas.

We will return to the riding school after completing a loop circuit of approximately 13 km. The activity will last a total of 2 hours.
