Experience Morocco in a condensed six-day horseback adventure through Essaouira. 

Explore the Ksob river's bends, nurturing crops and palm trees. Traverse natural canyons shaped by seasonal water flow, revealing ever-changing scenery. Venture through a vast Argan tree forest, with an option to visit a women's cooperative showcasing olive oil production.

Witness the transition from the largest Argan tree to cliffs along the Atlantic Ocean. Descend to secluded beaches, gallop along the shore, and witness the sunset. Enjoy authentic Moroccan cuisine at the bivouac, skillfully prepared with your preferences and dietary restrictions in mind.

Explore the UNESCO-listed Medina. Traverse Sultan Moulay Ben Abdallah Palace, a UNESCO heritage site and a backdrop for films like “Games of Thrones”.

On the final day, immerse yourself in the Essaouira Medina, indulge in shopping, and allocate time for a relaxing hammam and massage – a perfect conclusion to these exhilarating days on horseback.

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.
