Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride in the North of Mauritius: A fun 1-hour ride in the midst of a beautiful forest
If you're looking for a novel experience in Mauritius, a refreshing change from your usual hobbies or an amusing way to celebrate an event, what could be more impressive than a horse-drawn carriage ride in a picturesque setting?
Climb into a lavish carriage with your loved ones, get comfortable on the plush seating, and ride through the idyllic woodland of Daruty, a preserved area of gorgeous greenery in the North of Mauritius. The leisurely ride through wonderful pineapple fields and a tropical forest is an excellent chance for you to enjoy nature from a new perspective. This package is suitable for people who love horses and beautiful nature but do not dare to ride on horseback or are looking for a change of pace.
Horses are not only a symbol of a bygone era before the advent of cars, buses and trains, but also of luxury and extravagance. Treat yourself, your partner, friends and family with a carriage ride through the wonderful rural landscape of the island to mark a special occasion or to relive the long-gone era. Meander through the off beaten track, to the heart of the beautiful woodland where you can enjoy the perfect blend of tranquillity, rejuvenation and discovery.
The carriage is pulled by one horse and can comfortably seat up to four passengers, so you can enjoy this experience with the people you love.
A carriage tour is an iconic sightseeing experience that’s hard to match and this package is a chance for you to experience Mauritius like never before. The classic Landau Carriage is not only very beautiful but also highly practical. The landau was a common form of transport in England and was even adopted by the British royal family.
