This trip is for the 18 to 29 year olds

Morocco might make you think of big markets and bigger deserts, but there’s so much more to this exciting country in north-western Africa than first meets the eye. Take an eight-day adventure to some of Morocco’s most colourful spots, with time to check out some of the country's best beaches (and maybe catch a wave or five) along the way. Taghazout is a magnet for Moroccan chillers thanks to some A-grade Atlantic surf and other seaside towns like Essaouira are made for kicking back and soaking up some sunshine-filled, cultural vibes. From the beach to the country, the people are friendly, the views are out of this world and the food is something else. Join us to check out some of Morocco’s best-kept secrets, from the rural villages to the uber-cool beach-side towns.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Immerse yourself in Moroccan culture and enjoy traditional accommodation experiences on this epic Moroccan discovery.
  • It’s not a stretch to say that relaxing yoga lessons on the coast of South Morocco are a highlight of this adventure. Begin with a class, before using the same balancing manoeuvres on a surfboard in Taghazout.
  • Get to know Essaouira as a ‘little picture’ for a reason – the city of the wind draws all sorts of artsy types thanks to its culture (and maybe it’s delicious grilled seafood, too).
  • Experience Djemaa el-Fna in all of its glory with an included street food experience with your group. Eat where the locals eat, and taste the authentic Morocco in Marrakech.
  • Practice your haggling skills, rub shoulders with the locals and pick up some beautiful traditional pieces in the winding labyrinth of colourful market stalls and cobblestone laneways in the local medinas.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, the High Atlas Foundation. Donations help manage their sustainable agriculture programs in Morocco's High Atlas Mountain region, which builds plant nurseries and provides skills training for locals.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip is set at a relaxing pace and you will have plenty of time to read your book, walk along pretty beaches and enjoy time as you please.
  • There are some easy going activities included such beginner surfing classes and some easy walking around the valleys. While not physically difficult experiences, please be prepared with decent walking shoes and appropriates swimwear.
  • As Morocco has a tipping culture, travellers are expected to tip small amounts for most services, so please be prepared. Your leader will suggest methods and amounts to tip during the trip, but it is left to the group to decide the details.
  • Although you shouldn’t expect any aggressive selling techniques in Morocco, please be aware that you may be approached by shop owners and street vendors offering their goods to you on regular occasions.
  • The weather in Morocco can be extreme. Summer temperatures can be uncomfortably hot, especially for those who aren't accustomed to the heat, so please consider what time of year you travel carefully. If you do travel in the warmer months then pack layers to cover you from the sun, bring the necessary sun protection and drink plenty of water. The desert can also get cold at night, so remember to bring base layers and warm clothing.
  • We have sourced our accommodation very carefully and picked the best possible hotels in line with Intrepid style of travel, but please note that service and accommodation in Morocco may be different to western standards.

Such a good trip! Great balance of city time exploring streets and medinas contrasted with time doing activities like yoga and surfing! Our guide Hicham was incredible. Would recommend this trip for anyone looking at coming to Morocco

Jacinta · Traveled May 2023
Highly recommend this trip! All of the locations we visited were beautiful and fully of culture and history. I love activities so the surf camp and mountain hike were perfect for me. The highlight, however, was meeting all the beautiful Moroccan people and like minded fellow travellers from an over the world.
