Hi fellow Morocco dreamers, This is a relatively short trip to my so far most favourite solo travel destination, and I am excited to arrange it and share it with you! UPDATE: the only other bed available in the villa I booked is in a shared room with me, unfortunately or fortunately haha. So, I included a discount in the trip price regarding this. The best time to visit Morocco is ANYTIME! So I am setting up THREE trips in 2024: check out my other trips with different trip lengths and contents. About me: I'm Nasiba, 31, from Germany and Uzbekistan. I have been travelling a lot?: mainly Caucasus region, Iran, and Central Asia. (Shared trips to one of these regions are yet to come!) and I KEEP FALLING IN LOVE with travelling. My style is to be sustainable while travelling, so we will be taking shared/public transportation as much as possible, or we share Moroccan Taxis! The cost of the trip includes all the accommodation, assumed costs of transportation, and a trip to Sahara. Everything else, I will not constrain you, and we can wing it! For the "winging part", we will do some group expenses sharing which I'll set up. The following route can be arranged in reverse order (we will align on this once the group is formed). Here are some of the experiences we will explore together: - We will start our trip at the center of Amazigh(Berber) culture and agricultural heaven Agadir: meaning lots of argan oil and co! - Explore magical Taghazout and try surfing at one of the world's best surfing spots(seriously, it is a host to world championships in surfing)! - Roam around and try the seafood in Essaoira where filming of some of the Game of Thrones episodes happened without any specific movie set arrangements, because it's such an otherworldly town! (this part is going to be flexible/changed: e.g. we might stay the whole time in Ourzazate and take a day trip to Marrakesh) - Then, we will head over to Ourzazate: an Oasis in the heart of Sahara: we will do our Sahara activities here. - End our trip at Marrakesh while staying at a Riad: explore the souk, the Arabic party life, and historic gems. When I don't specify the trip costs like the surfing trip, it means it's super optional(and not expensive anyway), hence can be skipped or alternated. Most important thing is to be able to afford a great accomodation and hang out together at the major outings, cook sometimes together and be for each other while making epic memories! I will have some other Morrocan trips posted here, stay tuned!

I am most of the time solo female traveller who loves to explore "off the beaten" paths and dive into local ecosystems. I visited Morocco in 2022 alone, and I fell in love with culture, food, people, language, nature. It's the country that made me curious in Arabic language! I have been travelling since 2015 and some of my favourite solo trips have been to Iran, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Israel, and Morocco.

Details about the accommodation: There'll be 2 bases: Taghazout - the surfing paradise, and Ourzazate - the oasis. In Taghazout, we'll stay at Surf houses about 200m from the beach, everyone will have their own double room and a beauiful big common terrace. There're also home-made amazigh breakfasts included. In Ourzazate, I booked a riad/villa with seperate bedrooms(also double beds) and a private pool with walking distance to cafes and hammams, while being in nature! Once the group is formed, we can discuss squeezing in a stay in Marrakech, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Trip Itinerary
1

Agadir

Day 1
We'll start our trip from the agricultural capital of Morroco and such an underrated gem - Agadir! Optimally your flight back should be from this city, or calculate half a day to get to Marrakech if there are better connections. Let's spend the day in Agadir exploring the largest souk of the country and the Amazigh cultural capital of Morroco!
2

Taghazout

Day 1-3
Next, we'll take the speed bus or share a taxi together or try the public bus (in my experience, it was the most authentic way to see Morrocan way of life) to the surfing paradise, fishing village and rising tourist hotspot of Taghazout. This is the place where I learned surfing for like 8 dollars a day everything included. Don't worry if you are not into surfing, there are plenty of other activities or just relaxing here would be a great start of our trip! We will stay at surfing houses here (with everyone having their own private room) and indulge ourselves in fresh seafood and fresh/organic everything since would be still in agricultural capital - Agadir's village.
3

Essaouira

Day 3-4
From Agadir let's catch the speed bus to Essaouira, an authentically/naturally magical city which repeatedly appeared in the Game of Thrones TV show. But this is not why I travelled here, in fact I had no idea at the time. Essaouira has one of the most authentic old towns in Morroco. It's my favourite town apart from Fes. I really loved my time strolling around the narrow and touristless old town streets and find little cute family owned restaurants(if they can be called so). We'll start learning about the rich history of Morocco as the whole city is like a museum! Inside out. We can feed cats and visit some local friends I have made here who will show us more authentic sides of the town(no scam). Aside from this, it's a town popular for kite- and wind-surfing as it's very very windy (but warm) here!
4

Marrakesh

Day 4
Next we will visits Marrakesh where most of the international airports have connection. It's also the most famous city of Morroco. Marrakesh is a chaos, overcrowded with both tourists and locals coming from all corners of Morroco. Everything is way more expensive than it is in other souks of the country. But it is considered the party capital of the country with the best artists coming together in this town. The nights can get quite jazzy and merry! Honestly, I could skip going to Marrakesh, but I know it's the most popular city of Morroco and you might probably want to visit it. We can discuss our stay here once the group is formed.
5

Ouarzazate

Day 4-6
Let's base ourself in Ourzazate and take a Sahara trip! We will stay at a villa with a private pool in the middle of the desert :) From here, we can take multiple trips around: to Marrakech, Merzouga... It will be desertic and we will have plenty of sandy activities to take up: camel riding, staying with Berber shepherds in Sahara, sand surfing, just hiking around in oases... This town has also been part of movie sets for several Holywood movies including the Lawrence of Arabia, so it's authentically magical town. Please arrange your flight back from Marrakesh or calculate half a day to travel to other city airports.
