You will explore city of Essaouira with a local guide.

What you’re going to do

We will pick you up in Marrakech and drive you to the breathtaking Agafay Desert. After that, we will transport you to Essaouira, which is located on Morocco's breathtaking Atlantic Coast. Here, you will experience the finest the city has to offer.

Day 1: Marrakech – Atlas – Agafay Desert
After being picked up from the hotel, we will make our way to the Lalla Takerkoust lake, which is about forty kilometers away from Marrakech. Along the way, we will take in the breathtaking scenery at an elevation of 1,400 meters, as well as learn about the completely foreign ecosystem.

Lake Takerkoust
Following that, you will make a pit stop for tea at Lake Takerkoust, which is a well-liked weekend leisure lake among city residents. You will go through rural areas and pass through traditional villages with dwellings made of stone and dirt.

Agafay Desert
After that, we get in the car and head towards the mountainous and desolate terrain that lies at the foothills of the Atlas.
The Agafay Desert is a paradise for off-road enthusiasts like quad bikers and buggy drivers, with a backdrop of mountains that are frequently covered in snow. After that, we will transport you to a camp in the middle of the desert, where you will spend the night and eat dinner in tents.

Day 2: Agafay Desert - Essaouira
When you leave Agafay, you head in the direction of the western coast of Morocco, and you keep heading in that direction until you reach Essaouira. You will witness a great number of Argania trees as you are travelling to Essaouira (Argania Spinosa). Along with the argan nuts, their fruits are utilized to generate a valuable oil that is put to use in both the kitchen and the beauty industry. The extraction of the oil is a laborious process that is carried out by numerous women's co-operatives. If you have the opportunity and the time, you should visit one of these co-ops to learn more about the process and to sample some of the finished goods. Goats will regularly scale the argan trees, which is a sight to behold in and of itself.

Sunny with a little breeze Marrakech, on the other hand, is a hectic melting pot, but Essaouira, on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, is a charming, laid-back alternative.
Riad (traditional Moroccan hotel) for the night and supper.

Day 3: Essaouira - Marrakech
Essaouira excursion
Start your exploration of this wonderful piece of Moroccan heritage immediately following breakfast. Amble around the old neighbourhoods and take a stroll along the coastline.
One of the most frequented beaches in the region is located on Mogador Island, which is only a few metres from the coast and is surrounded by water that is very clean. In addition, the waves that are found there are rather gentle. While you are in the middle of Essaouira, you should stop by the Jewish Mellah and Chaim Pinto's Synagogue. Take a stroll within the Skala de la Kasbah, which are the beachfront ramparts that date back to the 18th century. Spend some time in the historic Medina, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

In the afternoon, we made our way back to Marrakech.
