Meals: No Meals

Arrive at any time. Get ready to channel all of the buzz and excitement of arriving in a new place by heading out on the town with your CEO and crew. Take the fun to new heights as you grab drinks and kick back at a rooftop bar. Don’t get too distracted by the incredible views of Marrakech, though, that you forget to get to know your new travel companions and prepare for the thrilling journey ahead.

Additional Information: On arrival, check the notice board (or ask reception) for the exact time and location of the group meeting. Afterwards, there will be the possibility to go out for a meal as a group in a nearby local restaurant. If you arrive late, no worries, your leader will leave you a message at the front desk.

ACTIVITY: Your opportunity to meet your CEO and fellow travellers, and learn more about your tour. Opt to join the group for a local meal afterwards. Don't forget to see the notice in the lobby (or ask reception) for the official time and place to meet up with the group.

Location: Marrakech, Paradise Valley Agadir, Taghazout

Accommodation: Dar Surf (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Journey to Paradise Valley, a tranquil oasis situated in the High Atlas Mountains that definitely lives up to its namesake. We know you'll be overwhelmed with photo ops at this spot, but make time to take a plunge in the bright blue rock pools or explore the palm groves nestled in between the limestone rock walls. Opt to take a guided hike in the region or to visit a part of the region known for its abundance of honey and argan oil. After, continue on your way to the fishing village of Taghazout.

TRANSPORT: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.

ACTIVITY: Surrounded by limestone walls and palm tree-filled gorges, Paradise Valley is a perfect oasis nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Swim in rock pools, hike to natural waterfalls or explore the valley's Amazigh villages.

icon Day 3 : Taghazout

Location: Taghazout

Accommodation: Dar Surf (or similar)

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Wake to the soft tones of waves crashing along the shoreline, then suit up for a surf lesson. Hit the waves for a free afternoon of surfing or paddle-boarding. Prefer land surfing? Opt to go hiking or do yoga. After a day of embracing your wild side, what could be more fitting than gathering around a bonfire on the beach as the sun kisses the horizon goodnight?

ACTIVITY: Never surfed before? No worries! Learn the basics from a qualified surf instructor and get ready to ride the waves!

ACTIVITY: Beach sunsets are always epic. Beach sunsets by a bonfire are even better!

Take coastal living northward to colourful, sun-drenched Essaouira. After an orientation walk around the city, enjoy free time to get to know the ramparts and rocky beaches of Essaouira further. No rest for the weary? Not true here — opt to pre-book the Traditional Hammam Experience and enjoy a spa experience that is ritual for the many of the locals.

ACTIVITY: Enjoy a brief walk with your CEO. He/she will give you some tips on finding things like supermarkets, main squares, and ATMs. For more specific or in-depth information, an official guided tour is recommended.

FREE TIME: Don't waste a minute — get going and explore this seaside city.
