Horseback riding in Morocco: Between Aghroud and Essouira (formerly called Mogador), this horseback ride will introduce you to two aspects of Morocco. In a first part, on the foothills of the High Atlas, you will discover vast panoramas on the surrounding valleys and a vegetation composed of thuja, carob trees, and lower, a succession of palm groves, almond gardens and olive trees. In the second part, on the Atlantic coast, the relief is softened and the hills are dotted with argan trees. You will finally reach Essouira by large deserted beaches. Rocked by the trade winds, Essaouira is the favorite place of artists and musicians of all nationalities, city of artisans and headquarters of the annual music festival "Gnoua".

Reviews
GUEST REVIEWS
Melissa (France) - August 2023

The service provider was very serious and attentive. Hassan, the guide for this week proved to be an attentive guide to the group and his horses and very friendly. The cuisine was very good and immersed us in the culture of Morocco. The assistance team was equally welcoming. I will keep a very good memory of it.
My horse (Titiho) was very well broken in, he responded well to natural aids, comfortable and very nice. I felt safe even at full gallop.
The camp was very pleasant and comfortable. The tents were spacious. Delicious and authentic cuisine.
In summary, it was a very beautiful trip that immersed us in Moroccan culture and led us to see exceptional landscapes.
Cap Rando services: Thank you for your great reactivity and the organization of this trip. Each question or problem raised has found an accommodating response from you. Except for a little more precise information on the things to take away for those not accustomed to treks and horseback riding in camps, everything was perfect.
We are grateful to Didier for having proposed this very well organized and framed trip with competence and reliability, and which will remain an unforgettable memory.

Cécile (France) - August 2022

Hassan was a considerate, pleasant guide who made no mistakes in the allocation of horses.
My horse Itri, corresponded to my expectations. The cavalry was fine, in good condition and in good spirits.
The tack was in good condition. No saddle soreness or irritation.
Comfort was enhanced by relatively thick mattresses and the provision of pillows. The shower ok: the staff did what was necessary for us to have hot water.
On the food, not a memorable memory and the picnics were basic and not very varied. On the other hand, a fond memory of fresh grilled sardines when arriving in Essaouira. Thanks to the chef !
A very good experience for my 2 daughters (16 and 12 years old) and me.
The gallops on the beach will remain in our heads and also the naps under the argan trees.
Breathtaking and still preserved landscapes (for how long? You have to enjoy them now).
Cap Rando services were perfect: responsiveness, efficiency, follow-up of our registration, confirmation file & website !
