Program

Between Agadir and Essaouira, departure from the Agadir area, passing from the High Atlas mountains to Essaouira. On the wet sand, you can make some beautiful short but intense gallop, and at the arrival of Essaouira, you will have an unforgettable view.

Day 1: Arrival

You will be welcomed at the airport and transfer to Essaouira. Dinner and overnight would be at the hotel.

Day 2 to 6: horse riding

Every day, you are about 5 - 6 hours in the saddle, four days in the mountains and two days on the beaches. From Agadir, you will start on a trail that winds through the hills, where Argan trees and cactus plants grow. As you climb, you can enjoy the panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean, until you reach the summit of the mountain.

The walk will take you to a typical village with palm groves, where you can meet the Berbers on an ancient mountain trail. In a colorful landscape with lots of minerals, you will cross valleys and pass traditional and lively souks, before reaching argan forests. You'll approach territories of the tribe of Ida ou Tanane at a faster pace, and you descend from the foothills of the High Atlas through long agricultural plains.

You'll ride along many beaches, walk around the cliffs on foot, and ride along fields with argan trees before arriving at sunset to the camp on a large cliff overlooking the sea. Every evening, you can enjoy a bonfire, a traditional Moroccan meal, and a night in a bivouac under a Berber tent. Dinner and overnight will be in the Berber camp.

Day 7

The last day is dedicated to the discovery of the Souiri coast and the city of Essaouira. This day you do only half-day of riding. In the afternoon, it is possible to do shopping in the Medina of Essaouira, massages, and Hammam. Dinner and overnight will be at a hotel in Essaouira.

Day 8

Transfer to the airport.
