Between Arzo and Meride, or in the nearby town of Ligornetto, many stables organise horse riding tours of the woods

On the backs of these elegant, free-spirited, empathic animals that demand sensitivity, attention and respect of their riders, you will be able to experience an entirely different, profound, relationship with the sights and sounds of your surroundings.

If this way of experiencing the region is something that appeals to you, you will find any and all necessary contact details and the Locanda San Silvestro, and our staff will be happy to help you organise a tour.

Just a little ways from the Locanda, some stables will allow more experienced riders to take horses out for both autonomous and guided walks, indicating which trails will avoid built up areas to ensure you can make the most of the woods and grasslands. For those who instead would rather brush up their skills, we can also organise lessons at local stables, for adults and children alike.
