Tour Description 


  • Hike the Atlas Mountains to a village that is only accessible by foot.
  • Walk across a river, through olive groves, and up narrow walled paths to a village hidden behind Toubkal, the highest peak in the region.
  • Perhaps run into some of the famous argan tree-climbing goats!
  • Travel in Land Rovers down to some wine tasting on the way to the artsy whitewashed villages by the sea.
  • Hike the coast and ride a camel through the sand dunes (only if you are so inclined).
  • Spend a night in Essaouira’s well-preserved medina, or ancient Arab city.
  • Luxuriate at some of the best small hotels in Morocco, including Heure Bleue Palais with spectacular ocean views and rooftop pool.
  • Spend time in exotic Marrakech enjoying the sprawling central square with snake charmers, soothsayers, herbalists, and adolescent acrobats.
  • Always accompanied by local guides who know the people, the culture and the history of Morocco (complete with visits to museums and World Heritage sites).
  • Cinnamon, turmeric and anise are just some of the flavors to enjoy during traditional Moroccan meals at high-end restaurants, remote farms and in the homes of locals.
  • We know your pace may vary from one day to the next—and your traveling companion’s may differ somewhat from yours. So there’s a range of mileage options, and each day you decide exactly what and how much you want to do.
