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.

It was a fun informative tour down the beach and out back. Feral Banker horses roam on the beaches and where they want. Beautiful.

I grew up on the Outer Banks and IMO this is the best tour you can take, locally owned by team that grew up on the sandy shores you find the horses, what more could you ask for? If we were skunked by the horses (which we weren't!) the tour itself is an absolute delight filled with local knowledge and lore. I will be recommending this tour for my out of town wedding guests visiting next year and for years to come. The tour and guides were just the best, thank you!

This was the best $50 we could have spent. We could have easily taken our truck and gone to the upper part of the beach and looked for the horses on our own, but honestly we never would have found them. The guide (Paul) grew up here and knows the history and where to best find the horses. They also have access to land that no other tour does unless this company grants permission. They have top knowledge in telling you about the horses, history of them and the area and even know the fowls and there names. We are coming back to OBX in June and will definitely be making arrangements for our older children to go. You won't be disappointed!🙂
