MARRAKECH — Red city, Ochre city, the Daughter of the desert, the Gate to the mountains, the Pearl of the south and the Baghdad of the west. This is Marrakech. The city that pulses, where your scents are intensified thanks to its colors, perfumes, tastes, and experiences. The city of miracles.

THE HIGH ATLAS — Berber villages, Amethyst mountain, mint tea, green oases, valleys- in spring full of blossoming cherries and almond trees; in autumn offering spectacular views of snowy peaks of the hills in the High Atlas. Wild rosemary and fragrant lavender.

Fairy-tale culture of the Berbers — LIQUID GOLD — argan oil, waterfalls, and caves. Sensual reflection of Maghreb’s mystic.

Adventure begins at Djemaa El Fna

Day 1 ~ Arrival to Marrakech

A flight to Marrakech. You will experience your first taste of this exotic country, as you revel in the vivid colors, tastes, and scents. You will remember them long after you have returned home. After lunch and some rest, we will do some sightseeing in the square of Djemaa el Fna – an experience that is hard to be forgotten. This place has not changed significantly for the past 1000 years. Snake charmers, astrologers, magi, belly dancers and delicious street food. In the evening, we will return to the hotel for dinner.

Exploring the beauty of Marrakech

Day 2 ~ Berber markets and Palace Bahia

The city of miracles. We will give enough time for local markets since everything we will find will exceed our expectations. All you can think of is found here - beautiful Berber jewels, fragrant spices, hand-made clothes reminiscent of the stories of ‘One thousand and one nights’, typical Moroccan shoes or babouche, leather handbags, hand-made baskets, embossed oil lamps, alabaster sculptures, precious stones, and crystals, traditional Berber carpets. In the afternoon we visit Palace Bahia (BEAUTIFUL) with a beautifully decorated harem of more than 8 hectares. It used to be home of the 4 wives and 24 concubines of the Grand Vizier. A gem of Moroccan architecture, built by the most skilled Moroccan architects over the course of 14 years. Ceiling zellige mosaics painted in gold, stucco decoration softer than French needlework, spectacular gardens. Beauty that awakens the soul. In the evening, return to the hotel.

Marrakech, the fascination continues

Day 3 ~ Jardin Majorelle and the bath ritual hammam

We will wake up to the muezzin`s chant calling to prayer above the square of Djemaa el Fna and the whole city. We will visit the iconic Jardin Majorelle in Gueliz. After the square, Jemaa El Fna, the second most visited place in Marrakesh. A gift by Yves Saint Laurent to the city where he was welcomed with open arms, 300 plant species from 5 continents. In the afternoon, we will rejuvenate our body and soul with HAMMAM – an ancient bath ritual, where space and time become intangible. In the evening, relaxing and/or assisted shopping - we will help you find the best gifts or we can do the shopping for you. There is an opportunity to visit the most frequented night club in the city. We are in a Muslim country, yet we know where we can meet our expectations.

An oasis of beauty and authenticity

Day 4 ~ Ourika Valley and Berber village

After breakfast, we set off to Ourika. On the way there, we stop at a wonderful Berber village where a local market called souk, is held every Tuesday and we will take an opportunity to explore the many wonders it has to offer. Unforgettable experiences for all of us. We will go on to the valley, which is only 40 minutes away from MARRAKECH. However, a new world appears in front of us. In spring, the world blossom with cherry and almond trees; in autumn, spectacular views of the snowy peaks of the hills in the High Atlas. Easy trekking, lunch. On the way back we will stop at Cooperative, where you can see and buy some of the most beautiful and quality carpets in Morocco. Transfer to the Berber museum, where we will learn how similar and alike our countries are.
