Sikani horse trek is a project that was born and developed in the heart of the Sicani Mountains (Central-South-Western Sicily) to promote and enhance this part of the Island, still today guardian of an authentic and welcoming nature, of traditions and typicality handed down for generations.
The Regional Natural Park of the Sicani Mountains, officially established in 2010, is located in the area historically considered the oldest in Sicily, where the Sicilian People settled, even before the Hellenic colonization. Partners and reference points of our experiences are: Traina Agricultural Company, established at the end of the 19th century in the Sosio Valley, and the Eos Horse Riding, an equestrian centre born in 2001 in Palermo and affiliated to FISE and ANIRE. The horses participating in our treks have been bred and selected by Traina Company and subsequently sent to the riding school and to trekking by EOS. Our team consists of qualified instructors and guides, expert connoisseurs of the territory, local operators and actors, true professionals of hospitality and local customs. We prefer a “contained” tourism, which favours a genuine relationship with those who live in the places, actively participating in the moments of daily life.
