Accommodation

Ride Egypt Red Sea Accommodation

Ride Egypt offers a choice of three to five-star hotels, subject to availability. Ride Egypt likes to have the freedom to choose and these are the favorites. Hurghada Hotels are mostly tourist hotels and you should consider that they will not have the same small intimate feeling as Luxor and Aswan.

Ride Egypt chooses hotels based on being in the best locations and access to the horses and dolphins, plus an opportunity to dine out or shop in the evening. All hotels offer both beach and swimming pool access and work on a soft all-inclusive basis covering meals, snacks, and soft drinks. Alcohol is payable locally.

Program

Type of Ride and Paces

This is a stationary hotel-based riding holiday; the paces will be trot, canter, and optional gallops.

Day 1

Arrive at Hurghada and then transfer to your hotel.

Day 2: Riding Day

After a night of comfort in the hotel and a delicious breakfast, 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 the 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, 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 snorkeling 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. You will be out from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Day 4: Swimming with Horses

In the morning, you will 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 with an optional Bedouin dinner.

Day 6: Morning Ride

This is your last morning and 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.

Pricing information

Please keep in mind that Egypt has a strong tipping culture and leaving tips is a way of life. You are kindly asked to factor this into your budget: 100 USD or 75 GBP, to be paid on the first day of arrival. This goes into a tipping kitty in order to tip hotel staff, porter, tour guides, riding guides, grooms, drivers, camel guides, and boat guides for the week. This rate is quoted pro-rata so if you have a longer holiday than a week or over several locations, please budget accordingly. Ride Egypt will be happy to help if you need further assistance in budgeting. Temples, museums, and historical sites all have local fees, you are recommended to budget around 80 USD but of course, this can vary depending on the client's interest in visits and history.
