This trip starts from the horse riding center in Damnoni with direction to “Mariou”, a traditional small village located at the top of the hills, following the "Avlaka". Avlakas is a water-channel that irrigates all the farms of the area, with water coming from the springs of “Kourtaliotis” river. The riders will pass through amazing paths with luxuriant vegetation because of the water, and will meet the Cretan flora and fauna: herds of sheep, meadows with wild flowers and olive groves, until they reach the Mariou village. The spectacle is very bucolic. Taking the way back, the riders will enjoy a magnificent view of the mountains around Plakias and a panoramic breath-taking view to the valley of Damnoni and Plakias bay.
