Our plan for you in
Arrive in Marrakech around 2 pm
Welcome to Morocco! You've just landed and we'll be picking you up for your 15 minute journey to the riad. Upon arrival, settle in to your room, relax, maybe go exploring before we meet at 5 pm for our Welcome Circle.
Women from the Henna Cafe will be joining us at 6 pm to do henna, we'll have some Moroccan cocktails, get to know each other on the rooftop terrace before heading downstairs for a candle lit dinner made by our hosts. Dinner will be traditional Moroccan Tajine!
Morning yoga followed by breakfast at our Riad. Breakfast consists of a homemade spread of breads, fruits, yogurt, eggs & more. We promise it is filling and nourishing!
You'll have the option to go do a traditional Hammam spa at a women owned spa just a few minute walk away from our Riad. Other spa treatments are available including massage. Otherwise this time is your time to explore.
We'll meet for lunch at one of the most lush restaurants in the Medina, followed by optional rug shopping with our local friend. It gets dusty, and takes a while with a group of people all looking for shops, so prepare yourself or you can go back to the riad & relax!
Dinner is at our favorite restaurant-full of modern takes on Moroccan food overlooking the souks.
Optional yoga & breakfast as our daily ritual. We'll head out at about 10:30 am for our full day in the Atlas Mountains. We'll drive 90 minutes to the traditional Berber village of Imlil to meet our local guide. Hike about 2 hours through several villages, passing children coming/going to school, many farm animals, hear the chants from the local mosque, and wave hello to all of the welcoming locals who have generously invited us into their homes.
We'll finish the hike with lunch-with-a-view. Enjoy traditional Moroccan mint tea and tajine before heading home. On our way we'll make a pit stop at a local women's coop who are making products with Argon Oil. Dinner will be at home.
I think you're starting to get the morning routine down.
After breakfast you have the option to hang at the riad & relax or join local female guide, Hanane, who will lead us to the newly founded women's museum, featuring all of the women of Morocco that have paved the way for future generations. Shopping at a few local women's shops will lead us to lunch. Here you'll have time to do as you please, eat, shop, go back to the riad & relax or we can offer you our recs.
Dinner this evening is an overwhelming tasting menu curated by our favorite local female restaurant owner who recently opened up her own place in the new city.
Today we'll be driving out to the Agafey Desert for a relaxing day away from the city. You'll get to decompress, and feel rejuvenated in the quiet oasis of your luxury tent.
Feel free to take a dip in the pool, read a book, or get a little bit more active with the many activities the venue has to offer. We'll end the evening with a cooking class with the female chef/farmer on site!
Post breakfast you'll have the day for yourself!.
Optional camel ride in the desert with the group that will take an hour of our afternoon.
Around sunset we'll meet by the fire, enjoy some wine, and listen to the guitarist that's stolen so many of our hearts.
Good morning campers! Your night in the desert was super toasty by the furnace in your room the grounds keeper lit for you before bed. Full breakfast, hot coffee, made to order omelets and more await you.
You've got free time so what do you want to do? Hot air ballon, massage, dune buggy, hike, relax? Up to you but we'll help you schedule any activity you're interested in.
Post dinner we'll work with an astronomer to help us star gaze as a final activity on our trip.
