Riding through Essaouira Coastal Trails

8 Days / 7 Nights

Riding through Essaouira Coastal Trails

A wonderful horse-riding adventure designed for keen riders looking for an unforgettable experience and memorable holidays. Essaouira and its wilderness coastlines is truly a great place to go for an equestrian adventure, beautiful trail rides, coastal hills, small fishing villages, Argane forests, endless stretches of sandy beaches and dramatic creeks extend from the harbour of Essaouira in the south direction, offering panoramas of outstanding natural beauty surrounded by an amazing variety of landscapes. Riding South Essaouira will take you off the beaten track, to an area that sometimes feels like it has been largely forgotten. The ride on the paths of the coastline will guide you through isolated and dramatic scenery that provides some of the best beach riding and shoreline, as well as the rarest flora and geology, to be found anywhere else.

Starting in Timzguida Ouftass and finishing on Diabat sandy beaches, this rewarding horse-back riding trip follows the spectacular coastal trails south Essaouira taking you across some of the best attractions along rugged and unspoilt wilderness coast, rocky headlands and gorgeous deserted sandy beaches. You will finish this riding trip in the white-painted and medieval Medina of Essaouira, a fascinating town, whose castellated walls and rows of cannon, still pointing out to sea, reminding you of the days when pirates and other raiders threatened this Moroccan charming and peaceful town.
