The Way of St Francis and the Umbrian hills on horseback

Back to the exploration

The Way of St Francis and the Umbrian hills on horseback

Discover the most beautiful trails and landscapes in Umbria on horseback

Experience one of the most famous paths in Umbria, the way of St Francis, in a completely original way, with an excursion on of one of our magnificent horses.

If you choose this tour option you’ll experience some of the strongest and most exhilarating emotions you can imagine. Riding these trails on horseback is one of the best ways to experience them to the full: not only will you be in close contact with nature but you’ll be in symbiosis with one of the most beautiful and majestic animals on earth. Our horses will accompany you gently all the way, always under the professional and watchful eye of our operators who, in addition to knowing these animals to perfection, will make sure that everything runs smoothly and in the safest and most peaceful way possible. You’ll immerse yourself in forest paths with dense vegetation, passing through streams and over bushes, and then across endless clearings, caressed by the sun and the breeze, as well as beautiful, boundless landscapes. In the constant company of your faithful, four-legged friend your spirit will filled with the peace and tranquillity of a truly memorable excursion.

The ride will proceed gently and slowly but, if you are well-trained and want to go faster, you can ask our staff to increase the pace a little.

What are you waiting for? Book an excursion on horseback along the Way of St Francis and among the Umbrian hills. You won’t regret it!
