Until 1979, the only mode of transportation when one needed to climb up the steps of the old harbor to get to Fira was donkeys. Nowadays, although the cable car facilitates this need, donkey rides are still a signature experience of Santorini and a “must do” during your visit.
If donkeys do not appeal to you, a series of excursions are available to anyone who wants to experience Santorini on horseback. You may always join a horse ride at beaches, along the Caldera side or through uncharted trails, vineyards and, with possible stops at traditional tavernas and wineries. Discover unique destinations and breathtaking landscapes that only by riding can be enjoyed.
