Plain version available here

Day 1: Arrival to Hurghada with transfer to your hotel

Day 2: Riding Day

After a night of comfort in the hotel and a delicious breakfast, we saddle up the horses for the first of our rides. Today you will be exploring the vast golden deserts and sand dunes that create the backdrop to Hurghada. Arabian horses are known for their beauty and this will be your first chance to learn to “fly” with our horses.

Lunch will be served overlooking the sea.

The afternoon trip on horseback will take us along through the desert along to the turquoise Red Sea. The morning and afternoon rides are approx 2.5 hours. At the end of the first day you will return to your hotel for dinner and a cocktail.

Day 3: Dolphins Day

Today we have a special treat for you and a stunning full day’s boat trip on the Red Sea where dolphins can be found swimming in their natural environment. You can jump in, snorkel and swim with these majestic, playful creatures – a truly memorable experience and something that must be crossed off your bucket list!

The area is also ideal for snorkelling and offers a chance to see the underwater beauty that hides beneath the surface so, after a delicious seafood lunch, you will have time to explore the stunningly beautiful reefs of the Red Sea. (8am – 3pm).

Day 4: Swimming with Horses

In the morning, we ride down to the crystal clear shores for a chance to unsaddle and splash about with your horse in the Red Sea while soaking up some Egyptian sunshine at the same time! Nothing really comes close to this unforgettable riding experience.

Lunch will be served on the beach and you will have the afternoon to relax and enjoy an optional massage.

Day 5: Sunrise & Sunset Riding

This morning we will awake early to see a new day dawn on this amazing sunrise ride through the majestic mountains. You will return to your hotel in time for breakfast and have the rest of the morning to relax.

We will ride again at sunset. Optional Bedouin Dinner.

Day 6: Morning Ride

This is our last morning and a chance to gallop through the deserts and see your horses fly on our morning ride. After an exhilarating ride you will return back to the hotel for lunch before heading back to the airport for your departure.
