Horse Riding in Limnos

Another activity you can enjoy on the island is horse riding. Meet the natural beauties of Limnos by enjoying a ride on a horse. Smell the sea breeze, wander next to the golden wheat fields or follow mountain routes and get to know the island in a different way.

Every year at the village Kalliopi at the celebration day of the patron of the village, Saint George, horse races take place as a custom. The riders wear a red scarf around their neck and the winner is crowned with a wreath at the churchyard of Agios Georgios. The event is organized by a local horse riding association called “Keros” of Kalliopi and the municipality.
