In eight days on horseback in Essaouira, explore the hinterland, including the largest Argan and cedar forest. Traverse beautiful canyons along the Ksob river, encountering camels and grazing animals and see the region's largest Argan tree. 

Visit an Argan oil cooperative, witness handmade processing, and taste the healthful oil. Explore the local market and old sugar factories. The friendliness of the locals is a strong point of this horse trekking, stopping for a cup of tea at the home of someone you meet and eating homemade bread. 

The journey culminates in crossing the dunes of Cap Sim and a serene gallop along the long beach that connects Sidi Kaouky to the city of Essaouira.

The organizer speaks: English
In 2006, an enthusiastic horse-riding tourist from Italy came to Morocco to book a horse ride on the (then still small) Ranch de Diabat: Erika. Omar, one of the two brothers who ran the ranch, was her riding guide... This encounter led to a serious relationship and Erika soon left Italy to live and work as a partner on the Ranch in order to realise a shared dream: to propagate trail riding in Morocco throughout the world. Erika had previously worked in tourism and riding is her great hobby. At the Ranch, she is the organiser who takes care of the rides. She is very concerned about the welfare of the horses and contributes with many new ideas to ensure that there is always something new at the Ranch.
