If you want to live the pristine nature of the Island of Elba to the full, an excursion on horseback along its many paths and tracks is a must. From then on, you will always carry the magnificent, unforgettable scenery in your heart...
There are many paths you can walk along or or cycle over on your mountain bike that are also perfect for horse riding, and some of them are not only easier and more relaxing, but they also take you to breathtakingly beautiful places of priceless natural beauty. Whether you choose to go for a walk along one of the paths at the foot of Monte Calamita, on the eastern side of the island, or whether you decide to follow one of the upward paths to Monte Perone, you can be sure of a unique experience you will never forget.
There are several equestrian centres on Elba where you can be sure of having company for your excursions on horseback. Qualified instructors and guides are also available, and they will help you discover magical places and breathtaking views both of the mountains and of the sea. Even beginners who wish to strong> take riding lessons will be able to do so at any of these equestrian centres or riding schools.
For those who don't have their own horse: remember to bring all your safety clothing with you since it may not always be available at the centre you have chosen, and, depending on the area and time of year, some antiparasitic cream too: ticks and insects can prove to be a real problem.
