Ride Overview - Denmark Three Island Ride
A diverse three island horseback riding vacation in Denmark! You will enjoy riding across Romo, Denmark’s biggest Wadden Sea island, the Mando Isle, the pearl of the Wadden Sea and the of Koresand sandbank. Your surefooted Icelandic horse will follow trails through pine forests, colorful heather, windswept dunes, little lakes and the widest beach in Northern Europe. Along the way, you will see migratory birds and seals. You will stay at a comfortable 3 1/2 *** hotel with a spa. Traditional seafood delicacies and beef are included in your meals. A true natural gem for both horse and rider! RIDING IN DENMARK
“Riding was awesome! Lovely horses, very well behaved, the perfect horse for everybody, novice to experienced rider. You just need to know what to ask for. A fast horse IS a fast horse, but if you trust horses and guides, you’re up for the beach gallop of a lifetime! The scenery on Rømø is beautiful! Most of the rides led us through lovely sandy trails through the woods (plantage) or to the beaches. Highlight was the ride to Mandø and Koresand. Koresand especially is a once in a lifetime experience. Just sand and water and us and our horses for miles (and maybe some seals if you’re lucky!). Even on a slightly wet and foggy day the atmosphere on Koresand is amazing.” K.B. Germany
Ride Itinerary - Denmark Three Island Ride
Day 1: Saturday
You will be transferred from the airport to your comfortable hotel.
Day 2: Sunday
After you enjoy a welcome drink and a video on the Icelandic horse, you will ride for 2 hours across the Kirkeby Plantage or the Sonderstrand.
Day 3: Monday
After breakfast, you will ride for 2 hours across the Kirkeby Plantage. The region is most interesting because it conceals open areas with bogs, salt meadows and even a little idyllic forest lake, Hviddal Sø. The plantation is characterized by the harsh conditions for growth on the dune heath nearly a hundred years ago. The northern part of the forest features a firebreak with shabby, low oak trees, but otherwise, the forest is dominated by pine trees.
Day 4: Tuesday
Today, you will enjoy an invigorating 3-hour ride across the vast Havsand Beach.
Day 5: Wednesday
You will ride for 4 1/2 hours across the Mando Isle. Mandø is between Rømø and Fanø numbering about 30 inhabitants. This natural preserve is home to many migratory birds and seals. Your trails will take you along tidal waters and salt marshes.
Day 6: Thursday
Today, you will explore the Koresand sandbank. This 3 1/2 hour trail ride will take you along a series of ice age dunes that were blown into a vast sandbank.
Day 7: Friday
This will be a 5-hour ride across Roma. The beach of Rømø belongs to the very best in Europe with lots of spice and reaches as far as the eye can see. The salt air on Rømø is a balm to body and soul. A picnic lunch will be served along the way. You will be transferred to your post-ride hotel or airport.
