FOR THE CULTURAL/HISTORICAL ENTHUSIAST

Morocco’s historical sites, medinas and souks, and traditional villages are some of the country’s greatest attractions. There is no better way to delve into the story of Morocco than by spending time exploring the ancient alleyways of Marrakech’s and Fes’s medinas on a guided walking tour. Between dodging donkeys, scooters, and hand-pulled carts, to just experiencing the constant ‘to and fro’ of daily life, all one’s senses come alive. Morocco is also a land of diverse settlements and landscapes that beckon the group traveler. These include the beautiful coastal cities of Casablanca, Agadir, and Tangiers, the villages of the Atlas Mountains, and the desert towns of the Sahara. All are unique with their own stories to tell.

FOR THE FOODIES

Morocco is a foodie’s delight. Its fine cuisine is as rich and diverse as its civilization with French, Arab, and Sub-Saharan influences. Try tagines filled with dates, apricots, and preserved lemons, all in thick savory sauces, intermingled with subtle flavours of saffron. Flavorful rice dishes, juicy lamb and chicken kabobs, breads galore and a multitude of mezes dishes will also satisfy any appetite. For the culinary group, a home-hosted dinner in an historic Riad is a fantastic experience that not only showcases delicious home cooking, but also offers the chance to meet locals and get a feel for daily life. Other great options are cooking classes with a well-known chefs, plus foodie inspired walking tours, visiting local spice markets, food stalls, and bakeries. Of course, the best part of all is sampling the food at every visit.

FOR THE WELLNESS SEEKERS

A land blessed with both Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines as well as a beguiling mix of French and Arab cultures, it’s no wonder Morocco has become a favorite destination for wellness seekers. Traditional hammams and health retreats catering to small groups are found throughout the country, allowing wellness seekers to rejuvenate and soothe mind, body, and soul. Marrakech is the premier centre to experience an authentic Hamman treatment complete with steam therapies, body scrubs and massages. If finding one’s inner self is not the group’s interest, a relaxing few days at one of the deluxe coastal beach resorts dotting Morocco’s Atlantic Coast between Casablanca and Agadir will be just the ticket for golfers, beach lovers, and shopaholics.
