Horse Riding on Bornholm: Adventure in the Heart of Nature

Exploring the island on horseback

Bornholm, the jewel of the Baltic Sea, is a place where equestrian passion meets the wild beauty of nature. Horse riding in Bornholm is one of the forms of active recreation, offering the opportunity to explore the island in a unique way. We can ride almost all over the island, using designated trails that lead through places such as the forested areas of Almindingen, picturesque Paradisbakkerne, majestic Hammeren, or golden beaches. Although horse riding is allowed in many places, there are some restrictions, such as a ban on riding in historic areas or forest fields.
