About Corolla Outback Adventures
Ride into our "Outback" area past the road's end, traversing several refuge areas and sanctuary sites like the Wild Horse Estates Conservation easement. Along the way we often see a variety of shore birds and other wildlife and of course our Colonial Spanish Mustangs! Learn the history and local lore discovering what makes this wild part of the Outer Banks unlike any other place on earth, interpreted by Corolla's most experienced guide service. Our tour features a unique and memorable two hour round-trip North toward Carova Beach and False Cape State Park near the VA - NC border. Stumps rising from the sand along the ocean bare silent witness to the early existence of an ancient maritime forest. Picturesque scenery and unscheduled appearances of wildlife offer many photo opportunities. Along the way, the horses are sometimes seen walking along the beach and even playing in the surf! We are very fortunate to have private access into the Wild Horse Conservation Easement, situated on secluded land our family donated for additional habitat area for the Colonial Spanish Mustangs. Several vehicle types are available for your convenience and seasonal comfort. Group tours accommodated for schools, club outings and wedding parties. We also arrange transportation to and from the 4-wheel drive area for special events.

Our guide, Sherry, known as Shorty, was amazing. She was knowledgeable and very personable. We had a great time zipping over the sand and finding horses along the way. Shorty went out of her way to make sure we all got to see and photograph the horses. We were even lucky enough to see the three day old baby filly!! This was our last night in the Outer Banks and it was absolutely perfect. Definitely put this on your to do list while visiting the Outer Banks. Oh, and please do not feed the horses. They are meant to stay wild.

Had a great time with Brad our tour guide on the Wild Horse Tour. Saw a bunch of horses including one that was only 2 weeks old. It was also a lot of fun to get to ride on the beach and not have to worry about getting stuck. I highly recommend this tour!

This tour was the highlight of our OBX vacation! Even when rain threatened our chance to see the horses, our very knowledgeable guide, Kevin came through! He knew so much about the well-being and care of the horses…his respect and admiration of the animals and the culture of the area was evident. Super fun to ride on the beach and not have to worry about a permit or getting stuck in my own vehicle! Truly an adventure! views never to be forgotten! Amazing tour company!
