8-Day Fitness Trek Along the Atlantic Coast of Essaouira


The Atlantic coast, bordering the foothills of the Western Atlas Mountains, is unlike any other region in the Kingdom of Morocco. Bathed in trade winds, the mild climate allows for exploration during the summer of this region, which is characterized by the convergence of ocean and mountains. Guided by the wind, our invigorating camel trekking adventure will take you from the south of Essaouira to discover stunning, inaccessible coastlines, sandy coves reserved for goat herds, and dazzling white marabouts.
