Horseriding

The Ferenstein horse stud offers recreation for riders of all levels. One can attend classes with an instructor, go on trail rides with frriends and family or an organized carriage trip. In winter there are climatic sleigh rides under the stars, taking its participants back to the good old times and giving breathtaking views.

Fox hunting,
or "Hubertus"

In autumn, residents and guests of Gałkowo celebrate "Hubertus". It is one of the oldest sporting traditions with over 600 years of history. On the day of the patron saint o riders and hunters, a hunting race takes place: a chase full of adrenaline, risk and beauty after the symbolic "fox", i.e. a rider with a tail pinned to their left shoulder. The one who catches the "fox" becomes the "fox" themselves in the following year.

"Bania" - old-school sauna

By the pond, next to the restaurant, stands a small house, where our guests can find a real wooden Russian "bania". Enriched with an infra-red sauna, it makes for a great way to get some rest - especially in winter. The bravest ones jump straight into the pond!

Massage

Leisure does not necessarily have to be active - and we made sure that after a long day of horseriding or canoeing there would be a place to wind down and relax. We invite you to our small climatic "bania" by the pond for a relaxing massage or for a reflexology session. And then perhaps for a glass of wine in the restaurant?..
