Swimming with horses at sunrise in Corsica
Amazon Creek can provide guests who are staying in Corsica with a variety of horse-trekking experiences which are truly magical for everyone. Early morning canters along the beach, swimming with horses in the sea or leisurely strolls in the evening through the pine forests are perfect experiences for beginner and skilled riders alike. For guests who enjoy a challenge, why not embark on a testing hack into the mountains along with an experienced guide. Horse riding at dawn is one of the most natural and truly exceptional ways to see the true beauty which Corsica has to offer.
Treks of differing lengths can be booked through Amazon Creek, rides can range from two hours to a whole day depending on your individual preferences. If you’re planning on reserving a horse riding experience with Amazon Creek, please inform us as to whether you’re an experienced rider or not so we can organize the best individual trip for you.

Experienced riders also have the option of being able to trek over mountains and through rivers, a truly wonderful adventure in the summertime. For guests who are interested in any horse riding experiences, simply inform the Amazon Creek concierge team before your trip or your resort manager during your holiday. If you’re visiting Amazon Creek during a busy holiday period or with a large group, it’s recommended that you book before you arrive.
