Highlights

  • Make the most of the opportunity to learn some basic skills at a traditional rug-weaving class.
  • Try your hand at preparing your own fresh khobz (flatbread), an essential part of every Moroccan breakfast.
  • Learn the traditional way of preparing couscous under the guidance of those who do it best.

Itinerary

Begin in Marrakech, where the wow-factor of the Maghreb comes in many forms, notably the spectacular Djemaa el-Fna town square. Then it’s off to the other Morocco, the one they don’t tell you about in the guidebooks. Break bread with Berber families in private homes in remote areas, see how an artist co-op is empowering female rug-weavers in small villages, take in the verdant beauty of the far-flung M’goun Valley, and enjoy the singing and dancing of Moroccan women in cultural ceremonies in small villages – far away from the bustle of the big towns.
