WHEN WE GO: 21-28/05/2023
Breakfast, last walk to the beache or relaxing on the terrace and we set off for the airport to Agadir or Marrakech.
We will stop for lunch on the way.
We organize pick-up from the airport in Agadir or Marrakech. But our trips are off the beaten track, so we take you straight to the little banana village. We spent the first night at home right by the ocean or at a campsite. Dinner together with the sound of waves and neighing horses.
We start with breakfast with the Ocean view. Today we can sleep alittle bit longer, take a bath in the morning in the Ocean and walk on the beach. We get on horses after lunch.
Ahead of us are narrow paths on steep cliffs, beaches, grazing herds of camels and goats. And in the afternoon, mountain climbing to reach the camp on top of the mountain, with a stunning view of the Atlantic.
We entered the mountains and today we will continue our journey in the Anti-Atlas range. The predominant landscape is rock formations, argan trees, bushes, goats jumping on trees and Berber villages from which curious donkey children peek out.
For lunch, we might be able to try specialties from a Berber house. The camp is located on a slope with the Ocean view. Down below is a fishing village and a beautifull beach.
The first half of the day will be quite short and ended with a descent to the beach. We eat lunch on the beach and stay there for swimming in the waves. There will also be gallops on the sand.
In the afternoon we climb the cliffs, from where there is a magical view of the Ocean. The camp will be situated right next to the beach in a fishing village.
We start with entering the beach. Empty and wide. First, we will cross it at a walk to get the horses moving a bit, and then we will have a race.
For sure you will find some sand on your face, but nothing releases endorphins like a gallop on the beach.
Further route through cliffs, gorges, narrow paths to reach the Atlantic beach again.
Camp with local people, with a beautiful view of the Ocean.
Beaches once again. And again fast gallops on the splashing water. After the races, we cool horse's legs in the Ocean and climb the cliffs. For lunch we reach a small oasis by the Ocean. Behind a large dune there is a beach and the ocean, and on the other side small cascades, a river with lots of grass.
After lunch we have time to bathe the horses.
The second half of the day is wide beaches, sometimes with black sand and a lot of gallops, if the tide allows us to.
Another camp right on the beach.
We are heading along the beaches towards Essaouira. The last gallops on empty beaches, the last climbs on the cliffs. We ride today for about 3 hours. We go to the stable for lunch.
We say goodbye to the horses and go to make ourselves comfortable in a nearby villa with a swimming pool. A quick shower and we set out to watch the windy city of Essaouira. A local hammam is available for volunteers.
For dinner we return to the village - overnight in a villa.
