Enjoy the beautiful countryside from the back of a horse, pony or donkey. There are horse riding and pony trekking stables in the quiet countryside, ten minutes from Polis overlooking the forest with magnificent mountainous views. Ride along forest tracks, up into the mountains and down valleys, along wide open plains to deep gorges, admiring sea views and forest where nothing man made can be seen. Groups are small and guided and rides can be from one hour to a few days, with all abilities are catered for.

The donkey is traditionally Cyprus’ beast of burden and a common means of transportation in the past. Nowadays, sitting on the back of this sure-footed animal is a great way to see the rough terrain of the Akamas. Donkey rides are available for 30 minute rides to several hours.
