Experience the beauty of Moroccan cities, mountains, and deserts
From the markets of Marrakech to the sunny Sahara, Morocco offers an authentic immersion into the culture of North Africa. The winding cobbled streets filled with colorful textiles and wafting scents of spices make the perfect landing place in Morocco and a great way to start our journey. Stay at a refurbished, upscale riad, a traditional palace in the medina (Old City), which gives you immediate access to the activity of the souks (markets) while offering a peaceful respite as well. Nearby, the town square is awash with vendors, snake charmers, henna tattoo artists and more! On one evening, take a tour of the markets to buy supplies for our cooking class and then feast on what we have created.
After three nights in this vibrant city, we head east to the soaring canyons of Dades and Todra gorges. The red stone walls stretch to the blue skies showing off the many colors of Morocco. Enjoy a hike near Dades before continuing to the edge of the Sahara desert where we hop on camels for a trek to a traditional Bedouin camp. Upon arrival try your hand at sand boarding. Spend the night under the stars (actually in luxurious tents) in the dunes of the Sahara with a scrumptious dinner prepared by our hosts. After dinner, perhaps hike to the top of the dunes to see the stars or learn to play some of the local instruments in a campfire sing-a-long.
Then, head back to the west through the gorgeous Atlas Mountain where we may meet its famous residents: monkeys. And then on to Casa Blanca for some relaxation on the Atlantic Coast. Morocco is for kids and families.
