Experience Ranch Marina hospitality in an authentic Western style. The ranch offers various comfortable, warm, and carefully furnished accommodation.

Join Ranch Marina in the evenings at Hayrack’s lighting up a fireplace and making dinner or experience a country style fest in a barn.

Program

Everyone working, living, or helping at the ranch and doing it with one goal - enjoying nature, breathing fresh air, eating healthy food, and enjoying horse riding.

With 35 professionally trained horses, multiple dogs, cats and other animals, Ranch Marina believes you will enjoy every minute of the time spent with them.

Ranch Marina has several unique barbecue places, where you can enjoy in nature while you make your own food, supplied by the ranch.

You will be able to see wild animals like foxes, rabbits, and deer while riding.

For those of you that are even more adventurous - observing brown bears just before the night comes would be a true experience.

The horses

On the Ranch Marina, you will mostly find American quarter and Paint horses, but also Haflingers and like on any other ranch, a pony. Every horse has a personality of its own.
