Sicilian Trails - Italy

Wild Sicily Trail

5 star rating   9 July 2022

Christine Kjeldgaard (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) The horses were fresh and well schooled, and they were really well looked after by the guides. I asked for a forwardgoing horse that was responsive for light helpers. I was very happy with the horse I was allocated, which suited me very well and lived up to my expectations. It was long days in the saddle with an average of 8 hours of riding, but my experience was that everyone on the ride enjoyed every moment.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodations were varied, and some of higher quality than others, but all were carefully selected for their quality or location in relation to the route. One of the nights was, for example, in a luxury chalet in the middle of the forest and another was far from luxury, but located in fantastic surroundings in the middle of a mountain, the most isolated hotel in Sicily. The food for both the picnic lunches and dinner was incredibly delicious, with local cheeses, sausages and lots of local dishes. There was also plenty of food and a good selection.

An absolutely fantastic experience. The guides were nice and competent. The horses were beautiful, and the organization of the ride perfect with a lot of variation in terms of pace with many and long canterss, beautiful diverse nature experiences and the end riding on the craters of Etna was something very special.
If you want an exciting, challenging and scenic riding holiday on well-schooled and fresh horses with competent guides and delicious food, I can only recommend The Wild Sicily Trail.
