      About this trip

      Join Lia and Jordan of Cape May Yoga for a bucket list, 7 night / 8 day Yoga Retreat and Cultural Exploration of Morocco.


      Morocco is one of the most culturally rich and interesting places in the world. Bordering the Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea, Morocco’s vast and diverse landscape features ancient cities, stretches of empty beaches, and stark deserts and mountains touched by Berber, Arabian and European influences.


      Our Morocco trip is unique as you will not be staying in one location, but rather traveling to two different cities, Marrakech & Essaouira, which, in our opinion, represent the “must see” highlights of Morocco.


      Our days will be curated to allow enough time to explore Morocco and ourselves. Lia and Jordan will be offering daily yoga classes specifically tailored to fit your energetic needs. Also included are three of our most popular excursions: a women's Argan oil cooperative tour, a Moroccan cooking class, and of course, a beach camel ride. 


      There will also be plenty of free time to explore (and shop!) the cultural walled cities of Essaouira and Marrakech, partake in optional excursions like ATV rides, and book massage and hammam treatments. Make sure to scroll all the way down to the itinerary below for more trip details.


      We will stay at a centrally located hotel in Marrakech, and at the lovely and peaceful 4 star Essaouira Lodge in Essaouira, which is located a short 15 minute free shuttle ride from the medina and beach. 


      We have both single and double occupancy bedrooms with private and shared baths available. Please read on below for retreat package descriptions. All prices listed are PER PERSON. 


      A €500 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your spot on this trip. The balance is due 90 days prior to trip start date, on July 16th.


      Multiple installment payment plans are available at no additional cost to you. Simply email info@solseedretreats.com after you register to inquire about setting one up.

      SolSeed is not authorized to sell travel insurance. Any offer to purchase travel insurance that you encounter during the checkout process are third party offers. You are free to select your own policy provider. If you would like to review options in a convenient online marketplace, we like what www.insuremytrip.com has put together. We've also had great experiences with the customer service and packages at Trawick International, AAA and American Express.


      We strongly encourage you to speak with a travel insurance agent to discuss your specific coverage needs, and to clear up any questions you may have relative to travel insurance coverage. 


      Please make sure you are purchasing a package which includes coverage for COVID-19 related trip cancellations and trip interruptions.

      Fantastic trip to a wonderful place! Everything was stellar from the accommodations at Lomas de Tzununa (great staff, facilities, meals, location), transportation and logistics, excursions and hospitality. I want to especially recognize our local guides Alex and Grace, who made the entire experience memorable.

      This trip was wonderful. Jacki did an excellent job coordinating our days with fun and challenging itineraries. Alex and Grace were knowledgeable and kind and helped navigate the tours with expert care. I would recommend this retreat, and already have, to others.
