Marrakech, Atlas and the coast (5- 7 days)

header2

You're visiting Marrakech for a few days but you would also like a taste of the desert, the High Atlas mountains and/ or the Atlantic coast while you are in Morocco ? Then, this tour is for you. While being an all year round favorite, it is particularly ideal with those travelling to Morocco in summer, when the temperatures make the Sahara inacessible. Or maybe you just don't have the time for the 10 hour trip to the Sahara from Marrakech ( after all, it would take at least a 3 day return journey).

And so we have imagined a tour that blends the sensory overload of the imperial city of Marrakech, replete with palaces, gardens, museums and art galleries, with one or two nights in the Atlas Mountains trekking and taking in the views, and one or two nights by the Atlantic beach, unwinding in bohemian Essaouira or sleepy Oualidia. For a taste of the desert, also spend one night in a private tent in the Agafay desert, with dinner under the starriest skies and a camel trek. 4 to 5 days of history, arhitecture, shopping, crafts, adventure and farniente. To ensure availability, we recommend booking at least 3-4 months in advance.
