Description of North Morocco adventure holiday

This North Morocco adventure holiday is not about adrenaline hits, but more about cultural ones. And taking a nine day odyssey around some of Northern Morocco’s most wonderful cities and towns is a feast for culture vultures. Starting in Casablanca, on the balmy west coast, this is a city of joyous juxtapositions. Medinas and modern art. Chic and shabby. Coastal and colonial.

Morocco is a land of such contrasts just about everywhere, in fact, given its eclectic landscapes of coast, mountains and desert. We visit the Roman ruins of Volubilis one day and the iconic Isma’ilian town of Meknes the next. The stunning town of Chefchaouen glitters blue and white with its painted houses, all set into the green terraces of Rif Mountains. And Tangier is the port that is packed with a history of comings and goings, colonists and traders. It is also the transport hub for many, and we take a sleeper train from here to Marrakech.

The cultural journey continues in Marrakech, where you have a couple of days to enjoy the vibrant and exciting markets, entertainers and nonstop action of Djemaa el Fna Square, as well as the elegance of its Islamic architecture, most famous being the Koutoubia Mosque with its iconic minaret centrepiece. This is a trip that keeps you on your toes but is also packed with exciting new adventures every day.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: North Morocco adventure holiday

As a global operator, we take our role in the tourism industry very seriously. We recognise the impact that tourism has on local communities and the environment, and we plan and operate all our tours with this front of our minds. We believe that every tour operator must be responsible in the way they conduct their business, to ensure the welfare of all people and the conservation of the environment.

We are committed to operating in a responsible manner, incorporating the principles of sustainable development in the way we provide our travellers with real life experiences. These values are more than just words on a page; they are ingrained in our culture and the daily operations of every office and every trip. In addition, we expect our staff and travellers to demonstrate the principles of responsible travel - respecting people, cultures and local environments; in the distribution of wealth; in good will and cross-cultural sharing; and in contributing to sustainable development.

We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment. From the colourful, chaotic medinas to the moody desert landscape, Morocco is a land filled with wonder and rich culture.

We take care to use local transport throughout, including sleeper trains and buses and stay in small, locally owned hotels and guesthouses. This trip includes a stay with a local family in the rural village of Moulay Idriss. Not only does this provide you with a glimpse into local life it also is a great way to put money back into the local community. This charming town is superb come sunset with views over the plains of Volubilis below. We source produce locally throughout the trip, eat at local restaurants and encourage our travellers to purchase souvenirs from local artisans

Recruitment of our ground team comes from the local community. This not only gives a fantastic insight into the country and a snap shot of day to day life, but it also puts valuable financial resources back into the local economy, creating jobs and supporting local businesses.

As company our responsibilities don’t stop when our tours end. Our own in house foundation has been in operation for over 10 years; a not-for-profit fund that has distributed over AU$3 million to more than 70 non-government organisations since 2002, from health care, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and in environmental and wildlife protection. Donations come from our travellers and are then matched by us dollar for dollar.

Our project supported in Morocco is Project Handicapped Horizon. This is an organisation which is dedicated to the rehabilitation, health, empowerment and the social and economic success of people with disabilities. This project is dedicated to Orthopaedic and Prosthetic Medicine and the traing of local artisans.

We are proud to be a carbon neutral company. We offset all our global carbon emissions and offer a carbon offset option to passengers booking their flights through us. Through these schemes, significant financial contributions are being made on behalf of our business, suppliers, staff and travellers to internationally certified carbon abatement projects, equating to over AU$1 million since 2007. Since then, we have offset over 45,000 tonnes of carbon emissions. That's equal to approximately the amount of carbon that 2,796,047 trees would absorb over 10 years, or taking over 4,753 passenger cars off the road for an entire year!

We invest in internationally accredited offset projects that are based in our biggest destinations. These projects not only offset our emissions but they also improve the environment of the local communities by providing an alternative to fossil fuels and therefore produce less pollution.
Our current project is the Alize Çamseki wind farm in Turkey. The wind turbines produce approximately 82,000 MWh of electricity annually and in doing so prevents 52,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere each year.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Visit Chefchaoen (the Blue City) - an artists dream - plus walk to nearby waterfall in mountains. Visit mosaic manufacture place and watch craftsmen at work. Majorelle gardens Marakesh - absolutely stunning.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


A surprising number of occasions of having to carry our luggage for short but un-enjoyable distances sometimes through busy streets. Lots of steep paths
and steps, unsuitable for anyone with walking difficulties (as one member of our group had).

Much colder than we imagined - however there was never any need for the sleeping bags we had been told to bring, so these just took up space. Should have brought warmer clothes.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Hotels in Casablanca and Marakesh (large and impersonal) were ghastly and unfriendly. Would have much preferred family run guesthouse as in Volubilis.
This was absolutely lovely and so welcoming.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

What a memorable holiday, one I will never forget, a real life experience. My guide Mohamed was absolutely fantastic. He took the time to tell me about the local cultures, showing me some magical places and lovely people. I will tell everybody about responsible travel and the work they do. I would recommend they use them and would highly recommend they use Mohamed as there guide. Many thanks to you and Mohamed for a wonderful holiday. There were too many great days to mention.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Many memorable experiences, overnight stay in caves with a Nomad family, interactive drumming sessions with the local hotel staff, rock climbing.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


This trip is not for you if you don't enjoy the many activities on the trip. I went in November and was concerned that it might be very cold in the mountains, but was positively surprised, as our mountain gite had warm showers and even a hammam. As the trip is quite short, you could consider having some extra days at the end to explore either the desert or towns other than Marrakech, e.g. Essaouira by yourself.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes, the tour guide also made sure to explain the responsible travel concept and how it was applied on this trip.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was an excellent trip, with fantastic fellow travellers and an experienced and dedicated tour guide. The locals (especially outside of Marrakech) were very welcoming

The bike ride was a challenge, but well worth it for the stunning views. Loved the walk in Dades gorge too, and seeing the eagle on the high atlas walk was a real moment!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


It’s good to prepare in advance if you need to get fit for this trip. Have plenty of small change at all times. Tipping is part of the culture in morocco.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes, in many ways. The operator also worked closely with the local guides and hosts to help set themselves up.
