"Discover the beauty of Morocco"

Trekking on the Coast

Explore the expansive coast of the Atlantic Ocean: trek along the shore, visit the ‘Jewel of the Atlantic’, camp on remote beaches, share meals and stories with friendly Berber locals…

Trek on the Atlantic Coast, visit Marrakech and Essaouira and meet with friendly Berber locals.


This trip gives a great opportunity to explore the expansive coast of the Atlantic Ocean, to camp on remote beaches, to meet with friendly Berber locals and to try a wide variety of adventures (e.g. wind surfing, camel riding).

You can also spend some time in Essaouira, the ‘Jewel of the Atlantic’ which is one of the most beautiful and best-loved towns on the coast. With its ancient Medina and undeniable charm, this is no doubt one of the best places in Morocco.

As a last stop we visit Marrakech’s most famous places. In the ‘Red city’ you can get lost in the labyrinthine narrow streets or souks and enjoy the atmosphere of the most famous Moroccan square, the Djemaa el-Fna.
