Riding Holidays in Egypt
Egypt is a land of sun-drenched beaches and ancient sites perfect for the adventurous rider to explore. There is a wealth of riding to discover in Luxor - home of the Valley of the Kings and Karnak Temple. Canter on stunning Arabian Horses along the lush banks of the Nile watching buffalo graze and unearth an abundance of cultural treasures from the saddle.
From lazy rides through sleepy villages to fast gallops along the banana and sugar cane plantations, the majestic Nile Valley is perfect for expeditions on horseback. Experienced riders will relish in the magnificent Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza, with centres offering day-rides and week treks. Challenging trails lead to high sandy dunes, across rocky paths and valleys, and past Bedouin desert villages. Giza is long canters in the shadows of the pyramids at sunset, or magical unforgettable full moon treks.

With a fantastic year round climate, wonderful beach resorts, sand-covered tombs, austere pyramids and towering temples, Egypt is a super destination for a unique riding holiday experience.
