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".
