Horseback riding on an island. Sounds romantic, doesn’t it?
Visitors, even if they don’t own one, can experience the islands on the back of a horse.
Riding together is a great shared adventure for the family, or a wonderful way for a couple to add to their island experience.
For beginners, there are lessons and guided tours.
For those with more experience, take a relaxing ride along the trails and tracks.
Horse owners will be glad to know that there are boarding options, allowing you to bring your horse along on your island adventure.
