“Horse trekking is really unique and being out on your own in nature is a great way to spend some quality alone time.”

Freedom on horseback: horse riding in the Mühlviertler Alm

Mystical forests, murmuring streams, gentle hills and no sound but the beat of the horse's hooves - there's something meditative about trekking in the Mühlviertel.
The area at the top, north of the Danube, is an exceptional corner of Austria. A bit more remote and unchanged than other regions which are better known and receive far more visitors. What is nice is the peace and quiet which envelops you in the beautiful scenery, especially as you explore it on horseback. The Mühlviertel is traversed by more than 700 kilometres of bridleways and wherever the trail takes you there are always plenty of riding centres or inns nearby, which are devoted to equestrians and their faithful companions. The extent to which they are geared to riders is shown by the wide range of services: paddocks for the midday break and stalls to house the horses, saunas in which two-legged guests can relieve aches and pains - in short everything you need for the perfect riding holiday. Everything else is in the hands of nature. When you ride along shady forest trails and through sunlit meadows, take a spontaneous break at an old ruin and afterwards ride through a cooling stream, you feel really alive and gain a sense of how good this life is.
