Eat, taste and cook like a local on this trip to the heart of Morocco.
Clear your plate for flavour-filled Morocco, where Berber, Arabic and European influences mix to create an adventurous culinary cocktail. Follow the smell of food through mesmerising markets and master recipes taught by those that know them best. Grab street food from a souq and share traditional meals in local homes. Take a handful of bustling medinas, mix with a dash of sea and season with fresh local produce, all drizzled with warm Moroccan hospitality for an adventure that will linger long on the tongue and in the memory.
Discover the wide world of bread, from Khobz to msmen and tafournout to simit, that forms an essential part of every Moroccan meal. Hollowed out khobz filled with boiled eggs, salt and a good dose of ras el hanout will be your new favourite breakfast
Brush shoulders with locals while you all feast on freshly grilled sardines purchased from the port fish souk in Essaouira
Enjoy traditional Berber food and hospitality with a local family up in the High Atlas Mountains, overlooking the crowning peaks in the distance
Soak up what could be the quintessential smell of Morocco as you watch ras el hanout being freshly ground in a Marrakech spice souk
Eat mechoui (slow roasted lamb), that’s deliciously falling-apart after being cooked in a pit beneath the floor, while looking over market stalls in the incredible Djemma el Fna
On Day 5, there is a 7 hour train ride from Fes to Marrakech. This is an ideal opportunity to enjoy a break from the bustle of the city and get to know your fellow travellers.
You will visit an Argan oil co-op on way to Essaouira. This is a very interesting stop, but sometimes the sales pitch can be pretty strong. It’s worth bearing in mind that these co-ops do a lot to support the local women of the region, but you are of course under no obligation to buy anything.
The walk in the High Atlas to the homestay on Day 7 is approximately 1.5 hours, with a gently ascending gradient. An average level of fitness is required.

This was a comprehensive trip which included the highlights of Morocco. Visiing the Atlas Mountains and Essaouira were highlights for me, as well as learning about the interesting cuisine.
