We don’t rent out our horses for people to take on independent rides. Argyris always accompanies his horses. Safety is our priority.


Argyris’s Horses is a small independent family-run riding company. When Argyris is not already engaged, you can contact him by phone or e-mail. He works alone.

Our company has got no relationship with the horses you may see at Hydra’s Port. You can book our services only through  e mail or phone. We keep our horses at our stables and you won’t find us at the port.

We offer our services year-round and we are based on Plakes, Vlychos. Most of the rides and treks start from Votsis square, near Hydra’s hospital, Annita tavern and Hydroussa hotel.If you wish to pick you up from another spot, please mention it to your booking inquiry. 

Due to uncertain terrain, all treks are in walking pace.

Please follow a “Leave No Trace policy” to reduce the impact of our presence on the natural environment.

Thank you!
