Overview

The dramatic and beautifully wild Atlantic coast of Morocco is wonderfully remote and still undiscovered. This very special walking and cultural holiday includes sweeping sea views from cliff-top trials and hidden footpaths which snake through timeless villages and sleepy hamlets. Days are filled with spectacular cliffs, long sandy beaches and rural landscapes whilst nights will have you falling asleep to the sound of the Atlantic Ocean beneath star-filled Moroccan skies. During the holiday you’ll also stay in a charming traditional riad in the heart of Essaouira’s ancient white-washed medina. This UNESCO gem of a town is home to towering walls, picture-postcard architecture, a bustling harbour, thriving fishing fleet and labyrinth of cobbled streets which are perfect for wandering down. The holiday ends in the bustling city of Marrakech complete with exotic souks, beautiful palaces and colourful squares. This unique Moroccan walking holiday offers the perfect combination of stunning coastal landscapes and a rich diversity of cultures.


A Genuine Small Group Experience - The Secret of Our Success in morocco

We are proud to say this holiday in Morocco is limited to a maximum group size of 12, ensuring we leave only our footprints on the trails whilst enjoying a small group adventure. We've been taking our clients walking, trekking and mountaineering for almost thirty years so we know the ingredients of a good guide. Those who are new to trekking in Morocco will take particular comfort in the presence of our experienced Moroccan guides, who we believe are the best in the business.

Each day you’ll walk around 4 to 5 hours with frequent breaks for dipping your feet in the sea and exploring beaches. The trails include mule tracks, rural footpaths, cliff top paths, and sandy beaches. You only need to carry a small day pack as the holiday is fully supported with a camping crew, therefore all equipment and main bags are carried by pack camels. During July and August the Moroccan sun feels stronger in Marrakech, however the Atlantic Coast has a cooling breeze which makes it pleasant for walking, even during the summer months.

Why KE?

This, exclusive to KE, holiday takes you along the beautiful and undiscovered Atlantic Coast which blissfully remains unknown to travellers. Read Lisa's blog Moroccan Experience when she travelled on this wonderful holiday.

Itinerary

Your holiday starts at the hotel in Marrakech. On arrival at Marrakech Airport you'll be met by a KE representative who will assist with the short transfer to the group hotel. Depending on your arrival time and after settling in you may like to explore Marrakech which is fantastic place and great for wandering through. Most people head for the central square of Djemaa-el-Fna beneath the stunning minaret of Koutoubia Mosque. Here you can enjoy a bird's eye view with a refreshing mint tea at one of the cafes overlooking the square. If you would prefer to arrive a day or two earlier, please contact the KE office who can book you extra nights at the group hotel or we can offer you a choice of riad overnights if you would like a traditional Moroccan experience. In the evening there will be a briefing from the leader over dinner, which is generally taken in the hotel for ease and late arrival of a number of flights.

After breakfast we leave Marrakech behind and make our way towards the start of our walking adventure. The transfer to the Atlantic Coast takes approximately 5 hours and is a great way to see local Moroccan life, plus we'll enjoy lunch and a number of rest stops along the way. In the afternoon we'll get to stretch our legs as we leave the vehicle and walk towards the area of Imessouane. This remote region is like stepping back in time with sleepy hamlets and the occasional white-washed house with a brightly coloured door. Our camp will be set up in a fantastic location high on the cliffs, and we'll enjoy views of the Atlantic Ocean directly from our tents. Once we've arrived and settled in, there will be time to wander down to the beach below us which is used by the occasional local fisherman. Tonight the team will prepare dinner before we fall asleep to the sound of the ocean.

This morning usually starts with breakfast alfresco as we prepare for a splendid day of walking. Today we're treated to trails high above the ocean as we look down on hidden bays nestled along a stunning coastline. This beautiful region is completely undiscovered and offers that rare opportunity to step back in time. Our trail weaves along the coast until we reach a wonderful long sandy beach just outside the village of Tafedna. With its hilly backdrop, this coastal village was once an important Portuguese port but today life moves at a much slower pace, and fishing boats are launched directly from the beach. The Portuguese Empire started to occupy parts of coastal Morocco as early as 1415 after the conquest of Ceuta and during this time they seized 6 Moroccan cities. They also built 6 stand-alone fortresses on the Moroccan Atlantic coast which are located between the River Loukos in the north and River Sous in the south. At times it's easy to see a Portuguese influence in the white and blue colouring of the houses of Tafedna. Tonight we camp outside the village and after a refreshing cup of Moroccan tea, there will be time to stroll along the wonderful beach and enjoy the solitude.

This morning we start by passing Tafedna and then gradually start ascending up the dramatic hills immediately behind the village. This wild landscape is home to argan forest or Argania, where herds of goats graze on the scrubby plants. Endemic to the semi-desert Sous valley of Morocco, Argan trees are between 8-10m high and can live up to 200 years old. They are easy to spot with their thorny, twisted trunks and wide spreading crown. Argan forests now cover some 8,280km2 and are in areas which are designated as UNESCO biosphere reserves. Argan oil is produced by a number of women's co-operatives in the southwestern parts of Morocco. The most labour intensive part of the oil-extraction is removal of the soft pulp (used to feed animals) and the cracking by hand of the hard nut. The seeds are then removed and gently roasted and this roasting accounts for part of the oil's distinctive, nutty flavour. Argan oil has two uses - either as a food product or in cosmetics. Is it delicious when used for dipping bread or drizzled on couscous and salads. Next we drop down and walk beside the waves to our camp at Sidi Ahmed Assayh. Our camels will have taken a different route today due to the terrain but they'll be there when we come into camp. Tonight we camp directly opposite the sea and before we settle down for dinner there will be time to stroll along the sand.

Today we'll enjoy a superb day of walking on wonderful trails high above the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way we'll pass Berber villages, tiny hamlets and small rural areas where farmers and local villagers grow vegetables in this wild environment. In the afternoon we arrive in a magical landscape of towering dunes. After we've made camp beside the River Boud, which cuts through the dunes to the sea, there will be time to wander down to the sea or hike up onto the dunes. This is a lovely location as we're near a pretty waterfall and only a few minutes' walk to the beach. From the top of the dunes you'll be able to see the beach which we'll walk along on our final day tomorrow. Tonight we'll enjoy dinner in this little oasis before settling down for our final night of camping.

After breakfast we set off for our final morning of walking through a wonderful variety of spectacular landscapes as we head from one deserted beach to another. During the morning the light for taking photos is particularly breath-taking as we're surrounded by wide ocean views which are stunning. On reaching the beach at Sidi Kaouki we're likely to see wind surfers or surfers who come to enjoy the excellent surf and wonderful climate. We'll say goodbye to our trek crew before a brief transfer of 40mins to the coastal gem of Essaouira.

Tonight we stay in a lovely riad, right in the heart of the ancient medina. The riad offers peace and tranquillity plus a roof terrace and traditional inner courtyard, once we've checked in there will be time to wander the spice-scented lanes and palm-lined avenues of the fortified medina. Dating from the late 18th century, the walled medina was added to Unesco's World Heritage list in 2001. The whole place is fascinating and a fantastic example of European military architecture in North Africa. A labyrinth of narrow streets, souqs, busy squares and whitewashed houses with beautiful wooden doors, means it's a wonderful place to explore. The towering ramparts surrounding the medina are excellent for taking photos of the white washed houses against the bright blue of the ocean. A must see is the bustling harbour where you'll witness the mending of fishing nets and boats being built in a wonderfully atmospheric little port.

After breakfast we leave Essaouira and drive back to Marrakech. After checking in at the group hotel the rest of the afternoon is free for you to enjoy the city at leisure. Marrakech has a number of highlights including Jardin Majorelle which was owned by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent from the 1960s to his death in 2008. Ville Nouvelle majestically sits in the garden and is a striking cobalt-blue exterior surrounded by a delightful garden of rare desert flora, fuchsia bougainvillea and deep green palms. The result is an explosion of colour nestled in the city and a wonderful place to photograph. The Bahia Palace is a wonderful palace set in gardens and also worth a visit. Built in the late 19th century, this beautiful building was reputed to be the greatest palace of its time. With a name meaning brilliance, the palace was built by craftsmen from Fez. The best time to visit the Djemaa el-Fna is in the evening and the souks are great for any last minute souvenir shopping. In the evening we'll enjoy dinner together to round off a fantastic holiday.

Essential Information

We've compiled some of our Frequently Asked Questions to help you learn more about this amazing trip.

  • Travel Insurance
  • Tips for staff
  • Miscellaneous expenses - drinks and souvenirs etc.


TRAVEL TO YOUR DESTINATION

If flying from the UK there are low cost airlines available to the start and from the end of your holiday.

To benefit from full financial protection, ease your holiday planning, and avoid dealing with airlines, we can book scheduled flights from the UK as part of a flight inclusive package. Scheduled flights are usually more expensive that low cost alternatives, however potentially less stressful if your flight is cancelled or delayed. If you book flights through KE Adventure Travel we will offset the carbon of your flight.

The group will meet at the hotel in Marrakech.

Airport transfers are provided for all clients on Day 1 and Day 8.

Hotel contact details and an emergency number will be provided with your booking confirmation.

All meals are included in the holiday price from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on Day 8.

It is not recommended to drink untreated water from the taps. You should take purification tablets or a filter bottle (such as a Water-To-Go bottle) to treat your water. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.

All food whilst on trek is purchased locally and cooked for us by our excellent trek cooks. KE groups are always surprised at what the cook team conjure up!

Breakfasts are continental style, with tea and coffee, muesli, bread, jam, honey and soft cheese. A morning snack is also provided and this usually consists of a type of Moroccan 'trail mix' with dried figs and dates, peanuts, sugar coated peanuts and other nuts.

Lunch usually starts with the Berber speciality of mint tea, followed by a buffet of rice, pasta or couscous, with a freshly prepared salad - onion, tomatoes, green peppers, grated carrot, green-beans, with tinned sweetcorn or peas added. Hard and soft cheeses, tinned fish, olives, biscuits and bread are also on the lunchtime menu.

Dinner starts off with soup and bread. The main course is usually rice, pasta, couscous, spaghetti or chips, with a vegetable stew (or tagine) consisting of some of the following - onion, potato, carrot, green pepper, zucchini, turnip, parsnip, green beans, and peas. There will be some meat (usually chicken, lamb or beef), however meat is not prominent in the menu. All dishes come with traditional sauces which are rarely (spicy) hot. To round off dinner, there is the usual range of hot drinks.

Whilst we can cater for vegetarians, albeit sometimes with a more limited choice, we cannot always provide special diets.  Due to the nature of some of the trips that we operate and the countries in which we operate them, it can be very hard (and sometimes impossible) to cater for a wide range of dietary choices and you may have to supplement your diet with food/snacks from home.  If you have specific dietary requirements please do speak to our sales team and they will be able to advise you whether or not we will be able to offer your specific choice.  Please note that we are unable to provide separate menus and cannot accept liability for any problems arising from special dietary requirements or intolerances.

During this trip the group will spend two nights at a tourist hotel in Marrakech on an en-suite basis. While there are a range of high-end hotels in Marrakech, we try to strike the right balance of a comfortable and conveniently located base while maintaining a really good value holiday. In Essaouria we spend 1 night in a traditional riad-style hotel. This lovely building is located within the ancient medina and has a wonderful roof-top terrace for relaxing and a traditional inner courtyard filled with plants.

Whilst trekking we have 4 nights camping on beaches or on superb cliff top locations. This camping is fully supported with all baggage being carried by mules, as well as tents, a mess tent and a toilet tent. You will have a team of staff to look after you including a cook. One of the highlights of this holiday is the true remoteness of the camping locations and the excellent service provided by the local team. A mattresses is provided, although some people like to bring their own thermarest as well. You will need a sleeping bag. Sleeping bags are available to hire, please contact the KE office to arrange this.

If you are travelling by yourself, you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. Single hotel rooms and/or single tents are available for a supplementary cost. If you are planning on extending your holiday additional nights at the group hotel or in a range of different hotels and Riad's in Marrakech are available on request.

The group will be led by a professional and qualified tour leader. The group will also have the support of a full trek crew including cook, baggage animals (camels) and their handlers.

Approximately £100-150 per person (or equivalent in US dollars or Euros) should be allowed for tips, soft drinks, snacks and miscellaneous expenses. Alcoholic drinks, souvenirs and optional activities are additional so you may wish to budget for these.

You cannot usually purchase Moroccan Dirhams outside the country. You can withdraw money in local currency from ATM’s on arrival at the airport in arrivals or in Marrakech. You can choose to take your money in pounds sterling, dollars or euros, and you will be able to exchange it at the airport. Credit cards are useful and it is a good idea to carry one in case of emergency.

Tips are the accepted way of saying ‘thank you’ to your local guides and porters. They do not form part of their wages and any tips they receive are seen as a personal thank you from group members. For our part, we advise local teams that tips are not a duty or a prerequisite but are a bonus and entirely dependent on the service that was given.

This is your ‘thank-you’ to the crew and the final amount should be decided by the group. We estimate that approximately £45 per group member should provide an appropriate level of tips. However, for the leader, we leave the tipping amount totally at your own discretion.

For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required, and you should have at least 2 blank pages for each country that you visit.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Please ensure that you check for the latest advice before travel. For the most up to date information on entry requirements, please visit the UK Government website.

Visa Morocco

UK and USA passport holders do not require a visa for short stays.

For this holiday we require a scanned copy of the main pages of your passport. Please email this to the office when your holiday is guaranteed to run.

If you have a severe allergy please inform the KE office before you travel. We will do all we can to help, but we cannot guarantee an allergy free environment on KE trips. You will need to carry your own treatment for the allergy with you, as 'adrenaline auto-injectors' are not carried as standard by KE leaders and staff. You should inform your leader on arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

VACCINATIONS

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella, along with hepatitis A and typhoid. A good online resource is Travel Health Pro.

The unit of currency in Morocco is the Moroccan Dirham.

Getting some additional exercise before coming on an active holiday makes a lot of sense. The fitter you are, after all, the more enjoyable you will find the experience.

You should be aerobically fit and comfortable with walking 3 to 5 hours for consecutive days. Hill walking, with a good amount of ascent and descent, is the best training. Running, cycling and swimming are also good for developing cardiovascular fitness and stamina.

Average daytime temperatures in Marrakech range from 20ºC to 30ºC during main summer months however temperatures on the coast are considerably cooler than in Marrakech. During April and October average daytime temperatures in Marrakech are a comfortable 20 to 22ºC whilst on the coast around 18 to 20ºC.   During the year night time temperatures on the coast can drop to 5ºC. During all our departures you are unlikely to experience rain but it’s best to be prepared for all weathers.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's ‘Travel Aware campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas. The 'Travel Aware' website provides a single, authoritative source of advice for all kinds of travellers and we recommend that prior to travel, all KE clients visit the official UK Government website at travelaware.campaign.gov.uk and read the FCDO Travel Advice for their chosen destination. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCDO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCDO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

KE do not encourage the use of single use plastic items. We are ensuring that our agents all over the world are working together to reduce the problem and educate those around them. We are leading by example in our KE office by reducing our plastic use.

It is an essential condition of joining a holiday with KE Adventure Travel that you have a valid travel insurance policy to cover the cost of medical treatment and to protect the value of your holiday in the event of cancellation.  When taking out insurance please ensure the policy you choose covers you for the activities and altitude included in your itinerary.

For appropriate insurance cover we recommend Campbell Irvine Direct.  Please go to our Travel Insurance page for further information and to get a quote.

Relaxing coastal walk - Our First KE Adventure ★★★★

Good Points - Greeted by Mohammed at the airport with cold water which was a nice touch after the delays within the passport control area. Transfers were easy and dinner was ready for us at the hotel on arrival. Aziz the waiter was very friendly and accommodating. The walks that followed were all well planned and easy going for all abilities on every day, we were lucky with the weather too as it was hot every day. The camel drivers were always helpful and Habibe the cook produced enough food for a small army at every meal. Mohammed was knowledgeable and guided the team well throughout the trip. The tents provided for camping were of good quality and were erected ready for each evening, there was even a toilet tent! Each walk contained plenty of rest breaks, sometimes for two hours during siesta time due to the heat. Swimming was there for those brave enough to jump in to the Atlantic. Lunch in the Berber Village home was a nice treat and we were hosted well during our time there. Essaouira was a quaint fishing town / harbour, we were all booked in to a Riad that was quite fantastic after 4 nights camping. The rooms were lovely and spacious and the showers were a welcome addition :) Marrakech Souke guided tour was very informative and our guide knew the 6 miles of old market intimately which was good as it can be intimidating to lone tourists. Our parting meal in Morocco with Mohammed was exceptional, especially the 'Pastillas' which were really tasty, it was a shame that Mohammed wasn't able to stay to the end of the meal due to travelling home. Not so good points - we weren't informed of the need to take water purifying tablets, perhaps we should have researched this further before our trip but there was no mention of it on the itinerary. Hints / Tips - Plenty of wipes Shampoo for sea water use Water purification tablets
