Located at thenortheastern end of Italy,bordering Slovenia and Austria, the Friuli Venezia Giulia encompasses unspeakable landscapes on its territory that make the region a great destination for equestrian tourists.
With the high-mountain views Of Eastern DolomitesOf Carnia and Giulie Alps – between lakes, valleys and protected areas with the impressive Carso Plateau formed by bare wind-beaten rock where soil erosion has generated a series of caves, cavities and resurgences – and the coast edged with lagoons and beaches sandy and rocky, the Friuli Venezia Giulia gives more than an emotion to those who want to have a more intimate approach with the region and choose to discover it slowly, riding a horse.
Notable for the knights the Hippolyvia of the Valley of Cormor that is part of a territory rich in spontaneous vegetation located between theHigh ValleyPlain and the Morenic Hills. A memorable excursion for those who love riding in the middle of nature: thelandscape, shrouded in greenery, alternates cultivated fields, stable meadows and groves covered with tree species including hawthorn, acacia and elderberry blooming in spring, smelling the air. A 30-kilometre route that undoes on dirt roads and alternates stretches of flora and fauna untouched to glimpses of rural civilization,monuments, palaces, villas and churches with a charm to discover.
Also spectacular are the treks and walks between the gentle valleys and the woods of Carnia where horse riding is now an established tradition:animmersion in unspoiled nature to discover, slowly, enchanted places retracing roads and mule tracks rich in charm, history and traditions.
