Odysseia organizes quality horse riding holidays on the sunny island of Crete in Greece.
Odysseia is open the whole year.
Our horse riding holidays include a stay in our own Equestrian Country Hotel Veláni**** with swimming pool and half board, the horse riding with a professional guide and good horses. The equestrian centre and hotel are located on a 4 hectare large estate close to the village Avdou.
The different horse riding holidays we offer are:
The Lassithi Trek, an adventurous guided or unguided trail (6 riding days) for the experienced rider, taking you over the Dikti Mountains to the Libyan Sea.
Or the Panorama Rides, stay in the comfort of The County Hotel Veláni**** and ride every day out for a new beautiful day trip through the Lagada Valley. You prefer to combine the horse riding with relaxing or other activities than the Sunny Rides is ideal for you.
Groups are split according to their level of horse riding. You don't know any horse riding, no problem. We also offer a Starters Course in which we learn beginners horse riding in a safe environment and take you out for easy hacks in the end of the course.
In the equestrian centre you are also welcome for horse riding lessons, day trips or 2 hour horse rides.
But for everybody who wants to see the real Greece, meet the Cretans and feel their honest and warm hospitality, experience the quiet and beautiful nature, see breathtaking views and you have a love for horses, then Odysseia is the place to be.
Join in a modern Odyssey of experience and adventure, and only then shall your heart beat in rhythms long forgotten!
