Paradise Valley to golden ocean shores
Morocco is a land of both bustling cities and wind-swept deserts, but if you head south of majestic Marrakech, there’s plenty more to explore. You’ll see some lesser-known Moroccan treasures in eight days with a local leader showing you the ropes. Pristine waterholes hiding in secret valleys, sprawling untouched beaches and traditional cultures preserved after centuries of Spanish rule. Hang ten in a surfing lesson in Taghazout, drink tea with local Berber communities and laze beachside in Agadir and Tafroute. This new side to Morocco takes you from the coast to Berber heartlands with all the magic of Marrakech at either end.
Djemaa el-Fna isn't just a marketplace, it's a way of life. Marrakech's largest outdoor food market is brimming with activity and is a great place to sample delicacies while mingling with the locals.
Explore some pristine and secluded beaches along the often-overlooked southern Moroccan coast, finding the spots where the Atlantic Ocean meet the mountains and rocky cliffs.
Discover a more laidback way of life in Taghazout, a sleepy coastal village where you can learn to surf with an included lesson and unwind with a beachside yoga class.
Get the right balance of a local leader taking you from souq to souq, plus plenty of time to explore the coastal boulevards, winding laneways and city medinas by yourself.
Visit Belgian artist Jean Veran's striking art project – a collection of pink, blue and green painted boulders just outside of Tafroute.
There are some active inclusions on this trip, including a beginner’s surf class, beachside yoga and easy hiking around the valleys.

In 2020, Ramadan will take place from 23 April through until 22 May. This is the holiest month of the year for Muslims around the world. Many festivals are marked as Islamic Holidays, which may cause some disturbance to your travels around this time. Some regular services may not be available or open during the daytime, such as restaurants or coffee bars. Please consider your travel arrangements carefully.
The receipt of commissions or kickbacks in exchange for recommending particular shops, services or activities is ingrained in the culture of the Moroccan tourism industry. To best control and monitor shopping and activities with an aim for the best experience possible, Intrepid has established a system of carefully selected shopping experiences and activities based on positive feedbacks from our previous travellers. On occasion, these will be as part of included walking tours or outside of included activities in free time. Please note that if you feel that you do not wish to join in on these shopping experiences we assure you there is no obligation and if you indicate your desire to not partake your group leader will help to facilitate a suitable alternative during this time.
Intrepid have set up a centralised system of receiving payments from these recommended suppliers, and funds are then distributed towards local Responsible Travel projects (such as 'say no to plastic' cotton bags for our travellers and drinking water refilling stations), traveller information packs, and leader bonuses. Further details of these arrangements can be provided by your group leader on request.
While Intrepid endeavours to ensure that these suppliers and services maintain reasonable levels of quality, please note recommended suppliers are chosen based on past travellers’ feedback and experiences and Intrepid cannot explicitly guarantee the quality of the product. A priority in establishing this fund is that the experience of you our traveller is not compromised in any way.
