Morocco Coastal Trek & Essaouira
Earlier in the year, our MD, Steve Berry, and a group of good friends, travelled to Morocco to experience our new coastal trek.
Starting in the eclectic and buzzing city of Marrakesh, they spent the evening exploring the maze-like alleys of the Medina, shopping the infamous souks and meeting a variety of interesting people, from snake charmers to fortune-tellers. After a restful night’s sleep in a local riad, Steve and his friends were ready to begin their trek in the small town of Sidi Kakoui. Arriving around lunch time, greeted by the notorious tree-climbing goats and their camel companions, they set off on the first day of their five day trek along the stunning coast.
The trails were varied, but easy-paced, following wide cliff paths, climbing rugged headlands and passing through remote little villages. Along the way they encountered all sorts of interesting sights such as holy shrines, local farmers and fishermen’s houses. Each night the group enjoyed a delicious Moroccan meal together on camp before settling down in their tents along the across the remote, picturesque coastline.
After the trek the group headed on to Essaouira, a charming seaside port; somewhere Steve had longed to go back to after his first trip in the 70’s. Here they explored the port on foot, and later joined a cookery class learning how to prepare a Moroccan tagine. Later on the group experienced the utter relaxation and delights of a traditional hammam. Returning finally to Marrakesh for a guided tour of the old medina and a final night out in this captivating ancient city bringing the holiday to a close.
