Horse riding in Morocco - Essaouira is a city with a unique architecture of its port and fortifications (Vauban style) and a special atmosphere that reigns there. It awakes a timeless feeling that no longer exists in the modern world, a sense that the past still lives on. In former times Essaouira was a pirate headquarter, nowadays it is famous for its musicians and artists from all nationalities. Moroccan craftwork can be admired in many different forms, including jewelry and inlay work. It is ranked also among the best places for wind sports like surfing and windsurfing throughout Morocco. If it is possible it would be a great idea to prolong the vacation for spending some more days in Essaouira or Marrakesh and do some shopping. Just as our horse riding trek « Around Essaouira », a star one in our programme, it is a round ride around this beautiful morrocan fishing port the battlements of which are similar to those in Saint Malo.
