Day 1 - Marrakech Welcome to Morocco! Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting today at 6 pm, where you'll meet your travel crew and group leader. After your group briefing, you have the option to join your leader and the rest of the group for a dinner. Once you’ve eaten, why not visit Djemaa el-Fna – the central square in Marrakech. Huge crowds converge at night to see singers, drummers, dancers, fortune tellers, jugglers and even old medicine men come together. This part of Marrakech is a feast for the senses – it’s an eclectic and colourful spectacle.
Day 2 - Sidi Ifni Hit the road early today and head for Sidi Ifni (approximately 5.5 hours). Stop along the way around the well-known resort, Agadir, for an included lunch. Agadir is known as one of Morocco’s most vibrant seaside cities, with a lively beachfront promenade and golden stretches of sand. After lunch, continue to Sidi Infi – once known as a Spanish port city before being returned to Moroccan rule in 1969. You’ll see Spanish ruins beside European and traditional Moroccan architecture. It’s a sleepy town with a lot of quirks and not a lot of holidaymakers. This afternoon is yours to start exploring.
Day 3 - Sidi Ifni Begin the day with a guided tour of the city, where you’ll get to learn about the Spanish history of the old town and the port. Afterwards, head seaside with a trip to Legzira Beach. This pristine stretch of sand is known for its unique red arches that dip over the sand and into the sea. Bring a book and some games or just bliss out on the shore. For lunch, perhaps try some local seafood specialities, such as grilled fish or fish tajine. After a chilled-out day, head back into town for an evening to spend as you wish.
Day 4 - Tafroute Take private transport to Tafraoute – a secluded slice of paradise far from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan life (approximately 3.5 hours). On the way, keep your eyes peeled for a weird sight – herds of goats climbing argan trees. On arrival, get an insight into the unique charms of Tafraoute with a leader-led orientation walk through the city. Ancient traditions still run strong here in the Berber heartland. You’ll also get to witness the beauty of the surrounding landscape on a walk through a desert oasis to witness Belgian artist Jean Veran’s painted rocks project, standing out as vibrant monuments in a sea of tanned desert soil. Visit a traditional Berber house for a cup of Berber whiskey (mint tea) before heading to your accommodation for dinner tonight.
Day 5 - Taghazout Have your swimming gear ready as today, you’ll visit some of Morocco’s most beautiful bodies of water. First, the aptly named Paradise Valley – a dreamland full of gorgeous pools of water hidden in bright stone canyons. Afterwards, travel onwards to a surf resort near to the small fishing village of Taghazout. Over recent years, the town has gained a reputation as a prime surfing location for locals and tourists. The waters stay warm throughout the year and the surf is excellent for rookies and pros. There are some seriously laidback vibes here, so if you’re feeling it, join in on an included yoga session.
Day 6 - Taghazout If you were thinking about surfing yesterday but didn’t have the know-how to ride a board, not to worry – you’ve got a 2-hour surfing class booked in to learn the skills. It’s okay if you’re a beginner as the intensity of the program will be adjusted to the abilities of the group so everyone gets a chance to enjoy themselves. The surf school provides wetsuits and all the equipment you will need for the lesson. Come the afternoon, you can choose to spend your free time polishing your surf skills, lounging by the pool or exploring more of this fishing village.
Day 7 - Marrakech This morning is free to spend as you wish. Later on, travel back to Marrakech where the rest of your day is also dedicated to independent exploring. Perhaps you’ve got a list of places you missed in your first time around, but if not, be sure to begin at Djemaa el-Fna – the most vibrant square in North Africa. Tonight, why not head out to dinner with your travel crew and local leader at one of the trendy restaurants in the Gueliz district of Marrakech.
Day 8 - Marrakech With no activities planned for today, your Moroccan adventure comes to an end this morning. You are free to leave at any time, provided you comply with the accommodation’s internal check-out policy.
