Discover now all our trips, tours, holidays and horse trekking in Italy. The Dolomites and the scent of tradition Let’s start from Val Badia : passion, professionalism and love for tradition; this is how sledges are created here today, according to ancient rules. During the winter season, on the occasion of particular anniversaries, it is possible to see many and precious sledges pulled by Norici or Haflinger horses, for example every year with “La Slitada da Paur” a historical re-enactment is organized: it takes you back in time to when horses were the only means of transport in the mountain areas to move from the farms to the village, when the long winter began. Here, in short, horse and sled are celebrated with care and attention to detail. The Alto Adige (South Tyrol) is the perfect setting for these trips that can also become romantic moments: starting from the parking lot of the Croda Rossa cable car in Moso, it is possible to move through idyllic larch meadows and snowy woods to the Fondo Valle Refuge in Val Fiscalina.
The Bassa Padana (Lower Padan Plain) rediscovered under the snow … For those who do not want to go to Trentino to savor the taste of an excursion from the past, in the heart of the Po Valley, in the places of Giuseppe Verdi, it is possible to experience the thrill of a trip in a sleigh pulled by one or two horses! The B&B Grisù , in fact, in addition to the usual carriage rides along the banks and groves of the Po river, organizes fun sled rides (when the snow cover allows it!). Nothing could be simpler than rediscover the familiarity of an early 20th century farmhouse immersed in the green and delightful countryside of the lower Parma area ! When Veneto meets the Dolomites… Let’s close the range of proposals on the mountains, this time on the apex of the Venetian lands. Here an excursion on a horse-drawn sleigh is an opportunity not to be missed during a holiday in Auronzo di Cadore and Misurina , to fully immerse yourself in the enchanting landscape of the Dolomites, declared a “World Heritage Site” by Unesco and considered by many the most beautiful mountains in the world.
