The horse ride begins with the crossing of a small part of the town, then we enter in and take an old forest road, very scenic, where you can feel the true freedom and oneness with nature, feeling of being away from civilization. You can admire the beauty of the ancient forests of oak, pinnacles and ravines, nuragical villages and the Domus de Janas (home of the fairies) in the area Sirilò, evidence of human presence in these places since ancient times.

Along the way, we will visit three lakes: Steheò, S’Ingardu and Lake Olof. At the pond Steheò will definitely be possible to see herds of wild boar and feral horses.

In Ventosu locations, where there is a picnic area, we will pause to enjoy a picnic lunch and then resume the tour in the direction of Lohana, where a plateau in the spring you can see that with an abundant flowering asphodel its white color makes the enchanted landscape; then continue towards Lake Olof again to admire a wonderful view. ‘This variability of landscapes that makes this tour a memorable one.
