In Abruzzo, your special horseback riding
This two-day experience is full of special emotions. Feel, smell and listen to the sounds of nature and the past. Feel the world around you, but most importantly feel yourself.
In the beautiful Abruzzo region, in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, among mountains, green plateaus and strong and gentle people, rediscover the past: limited telephone and internet connection, fountains or streams to wash yourself and do the laundry, a basic camping site to rest and sleep.
Leave the comforts of modern life behind you and experience the mountains where indigenous people and shepherds have been taking care of their livestock in harmony with nature for centuries.
Discover their way of living and traditions as well as products deriving from nature.
The practical activities mainly include feeding, cleaning, training and taking care of the animals as well as gardening.
You will sleep in basic tents, shared facilities or in cabins while being away from the base camp.
Feel like a trapper while preparing meals over an open fire using all-natural products from local farms. Meet the farmers and breeders, learn new techniques and ancient traditions and experience what it was like to live in this region.
Challenge your senses with this tour and go back in time to see the region’s poor origins and charm.
