Program

Day 1: Arrival in Hurghada with transfer to your hotel

Day 2: Riding day

After a night of comfort in the hotel and a delicious breakfast, you saddle up the horses for the first of your rides. Today, you will be exploring the vast golden deserts and sand dunes that create the backdrop to Hurghada. Arabian horses are known for their beauty and this will be your first chance to learn to “fly” with Ride Egypt's horses.

Lunch will be served overlooking the sea. The afternoon trip on horseback will take you along through the desert along to the turquoise Red Sea. The morning and afternoon rides are approximately 2.5 hours. At the end of the first day, you will return to your hotel for dinner and a cocktail.

Day 3: Dolphins day

Today, from 08:00 to 15:00, Ride Egypt has a special treat for you and a stunning full day’s boat trip on the Red Sea where dolphins can be found swimming in their natural environment. You can jump in, snorkel, and swim with these majestic, playful creatures - a truly memorable experience and something that must be crossed off your bucket list.

The area is also ideal for snorkelling and offers a chance to see the underwater beauty that hides beneath the surface. So, after a delicious seafood lunch, you will have time to explore the stunningly beautiful reefs of the Red Sea.

Day 4: Swimming with horses

In the morning, you ride down to the crystal clear shores for a chance to unsaddle and splash about with your horse in the Red Sea while soaking up some Egyptian sunshine at the same time. Nothing really comes close to this unforgettable riding experience. Lunch will be served on the beach and you will have the afternoon to relax and enjoy an optional massage.

Day 5: Sunrise and sunset riding

This morning, you will awake early to see a new day dawn on this amazing sunrise ride through the majestic mountains. You will return to your hotel in time for breakfast and have the rest of the morning to relax. You will ride again at sunset. You will have an optional Bedouin Dinner.

Day 6: Morning ride

This is your last morning and the last chance to gallop through the deserts and see your horses fly on your morning ride. After an exhilarating ride, you will return back to the hotel for lunch before heading back to the airport for your departure.

Arabian horses

Arabian horses are famed for their beauty and endurance. Developed in a desert climate and prized by the nomadic Bedouin people, they were often being brought inside the family tent for shelter and protection from theft.

Selective breeding for traits including an ability to form a cooperative relationship with humans created a horse breed that is good-natured, quick to learn, and willing to please. The Arabian also developed the high spirit and alertness needed in a horse used for raiding and war. This combination of willingness and sensitivity requires modern Arabian horse owners to handle their horses with competence and respect.

Included excursions

Besides horse riding, you will enjoy a stunning full day’s boat trip on the Red Sea where dolphins can be found swimming in their natural environment.
