Red Sea Mini Break

6 days / 5 nights – £1,350 based on 2 sharing

This summer, escape to the refreshing shores of the Red Sea with our mini-break adventure! Designed to beat the heat with early morning rides, this trip offers some of the best attractions the Red Sea has to offer, from swimming with horses and wild dolphins to thrilling quad bike safaris and desert trails.


Day 1: Arrival to Hurghada with transfer to your hotel

Welcome to Hurghada! Our team will greet you at the airport and arrange a smooth transfer to your hotel, where you can rest and prepare for the exciting days ahead.

Day 2: Introductory Ride, Swim with Horses & Quad Safari.

Good morning, beautiful Hurghada! Today marks one of the most anticipated highlights of our itinerary: swimming with horses in the crystal-clear Red Sea! After a relaxing breakfast, we’ll introduce you to our horses and stable. We’ll begin with a 2-hour introductory ride through the desert to the beach, where we’ll remove the saddles and swim bareback with the horses in the tranquil, crystal-clear waters. After a refreshing swim, we’ll enjoy a beachside lunch. You’ll have a couple of hours to relax by the pool or in the sea before we head off for a quad bike safari in the eastern desert, including a visit to a Bedouin camp for tea. The quad bike adventure starts around 2pm and includes meeting our favorite snake man and enjoying tea with the Bedouins. You’ll zoom through the desert and enjoy a fast-paced drive back in time for sunset. Dinner will be served at a local restaurant.

Riding time: approx. 3-4 hours for horses & 3 hours for quad bikes.

Day 3: Full Day Boat Safari with Wild Dolphins.

Get ready for a full-day adventure on the water! Today, we’ll take you to Dolphin House, where you can swim with playful wild dolphins and explore two stunning snorkeling sites around the reefs of Hurghada. Onboard, you’ll be treated to a delicious lunch by the wonderful crew. The trip runs approximately from 7am to 3:30pm. You’ll visit three great snorkeling spots, including Dolphin House. For those playful customers, there’s some fun to be had with banana inflatables and other games before sailing back. Dinner will be served at our guest house.

Day 4: Half Day Bedouin Trail & Souk Shopping

This morning, we wake up early for a breathtaking sunrise ride through the majestic mountains. This half-day trail ride starts early to avoid the midday sun, finishing around 11:30am. You may not love us when your alarm goes off, but you’ll love watching a new day dawn from horseback across the desert. There are plenty of places to fly with the horses! After a much-deserved lunch at the guest house, you can relax or book a massage. We also offer the option to go shopping at the local souk for jewelry, corals, or precious stones. Shopping in Hurghada is a great fun holiday activity, especially if you enjoy haggling. For those who don’t like haggling, we’ll be on hand to help you get the best prices. Dinner will be at a local restaurant.

Day 5: You Decide!

Today gives you the chance to do what you love. You can try kite surfing, go on a 4×4 safari, visit Luxor for the day, or ride more horses! We will be happy to provide you with any experience your heart desires.

Day 6: Half Day Ride, Lunch & Check Out

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

Late check outs are available on request.
