Netherlands, Terschelling

The Dutch island of Terschelling is located about 15 km off the coast of the Wadden Sea in the North Sea. It belongs to an archipelago called the Frisian Islands, and of course you should ride on beautiful Friesian horses here.
The island is known for its 30 km long sandy beach which is made for lovely gallops. Here you can enjoy wonderful rides in exciting nature all year round. The different rides take you through the picturesque sand dunes, past cranberry fields, through the idyllic forest and of course along the beach. One day you might do an evening ride, which ends around the campfire. During the week you will have access to a free bicycle when not riding, and with that you can explore the island during the free time. 

The rides are suitable for both beginners and more advanced riders as you will be divided into two groups depending on riding experience.
