Take the family out and about on one of these three horsy adventures while in the Zadar region.
Riding in the Nature park
With the help of an experienced riding coach, your family will enjoy a tour of the impressive Vrana Lake Nature Park on horseback. Not only do you get to see some remarkable scenery as you ride, but you get to enjoy it with gentle, family-friendly horses at the same time.
The tour begins at Vrana Agricultural Estate, where you join your new 4-legged friends! You then head off on the Vrana Lake path, and the adventure begins. The trip takes four hours and takes you alongside the largest natural lake in Croatia, where you can spot some of the birds that call the area home. When lunchtime rolls around, you’ll have a picnic by the lakeside before returning.
This is the perfect day out for all the family and one which will create plenty of lifelong memories.
Swimming with Horses
Swimming with horses? Yes, you read that right! Horseback riding on its own is impressive, but riding through the water, literally swimming with these majestic creatures? That’s something else entirely.
This family tour is a full day out and begins at 8 am with your transfer from Zadar. The drive to the ranch takes only an hour, and then you get a quick rundown of safety issues, etc. Then, you’re ready to go!
The scenery passing by is simply divine, and everyone in the family will have their jaws dropped. When your family is hungry, a delicious snack lunch is provided for you, before arriving back in Zadar around 3 pm.
Riding with a View
Learning more about horses is a fun activity for the whole family. They will adore this day out spent learning more about horses, interacting with them, and having a marvellous horseback ride with a fantastic view of the Velebit Mountains.
This is the ideal way to get your children to learn about the wonder of nature first-hand and to tire them out at the same time! The trip is suitable for beginners as all safety equipment is provided, and you have an experienced trainer with you at all times. The ride itself lasts for 45 minutes, and the kids will get to learn about all aspects of the horses, including grooming and unloading.
The horse-riding is on the rural estate Mićanovi dvori, onsite they also have on offer, accommodation and cook up local meals for you to enjoy.
