This retreat includes traveling across Morocco and staying at some really cool places at four different locations. You will spend one night at a fairly basic crash pad at Hotel Kenzi Rissani in Errachidia, while on our way to the desert. After that, you will be spending the next two nights in a luxurious private desert glamping at the Sahara desert.

The following two nights, SurfYogaBeer have rented several villas and you will be staying at Sol House Surf in Agadir. This retreat will end in Marrakech, you will be staying at an incredible Moroccan riad (traditional Moroccan palace) called, at Riad Star. It is an old fashion but luxurious riad located in the old Medina center.

Program

Imagine this, you will be flying into the City of Casablanca to explore its offerings and enjoy lunch at Rick’s Cafe before hopping on a quick flight to the city of Ouarzazate (nicknamed “the door of the desert”). Ouarzazate is the starting point of Sahara included excursion, such as guided tours of the desert, camel rides in the dunes of Chegaga.

You will also get to enjoy some of the greatest desert activities like sleeping in the best Erg Chigaga desert camp, sand boarding, and Berber music around the fire under the stars. As well as the epic sunrise from the back of a camel, followed by yoga in the dunes.

The Morocco journey couldn’t end without a stop in the bustling city of Marrakech, which known as the greatest spectacle on earth and the loveliest spot in the world. Marrakech is a feast for the senses and offers an endless mosaic of marketplaces, musicians, and delectable foods. Basically, it is a cultural paradise and just a short drive to the city of Essaouira, where the journey will end by reflecting on the experience and the beauty of the sandy bay. Here’s looking at you, kid!

This trip has one night of "glamping" without access to Wi-Fi and certain hotel amenities, however, you won't feel like you're missing anything. It is one of the trip's highlights. This trip has some in-country domestic travel as we make our way across Morocco. SurfYogaBeer tried to find a good balance between experiencing as much of Morocco as possible and have booked two domestic flights to ease drive times. However, there are still going to have a few long drives.
