Adventure to come in 2024 : Carpathians & Alps by Horseback
The adventure continues in 2024 - With our team of Kyrgyz horses Tian, Fidel & Chai, we'll traverse 3000 kilometers through Europe, on a mountaineering journey through the Carpathians to the Alps, to set them up in the French Alps.
Map : Our horse trek accross Kyrgyzstan, summer 2021
After a year on pause, En Selle got back in the saddle in 2021! With our three Kyrgyz horses Fidel, Tian, and Chai, we rode approximately 1600km across Kyrgyzstan. To make our itinerary we overlayed maps of national parks, biodiversity hotspots and culturally significant places and connected the dots. We crossed paths with the ghosts of Genghis Khan, Marco Polo and all the Silk Road’s most notorious nomadic peoples, living and dead.
Map: Our horse trek from South to North Albania, 2019
Nestled between Montenegro and Greece, Albania represents one of the last wild frontiers in Europe. After one month of horse shopping and intense preparation for the 800km trek, we departed from Gjirokaster in the south. Sticking to primarily mountain roads, we slowly marched north with our horses Johnny, Griva and Düldül, basking in the stunning landscapes and heartfelt local encounters. On July 5th, we arrived successfully in Valbona Valley, at the northernmost tip of the country. We are the first riders in Albania to complete such a long horse trek using the same horses. We strongly encourage other riders to undertake their own Albanian horse trek, as the country is a veritable playground for this method of travel.
