Post Convention Caravan Tour of the Atlas Mountains and Sahara desert!
Dates: April 27th to May 5, 2019
This trip will take you over the Atlas mountains and into the deep southeast of Morocco. We will explore the Sahara desert while traveling with a group of Acro friends. The schedule for this week will be an organic creation depending on people’s interest, energy, weather, and more.
Sam, Raquel, and Jacob are excited to take a trip to Sahara desert, and we thought you might like to join us! This is an opportunity to have an authentic week experiencing real Berber culture and life in Morocco. You are invited to travel with us, do some Yoga, Acro, relax, and maybe some random slacklining in the desert.
The trip will be begin on Saturday April 27th after breakfast and the conclusion of the convention. We'll drive south over the Atlas mountains to the timeless Berber village of Tisselday. Irocha, our home for the nights of the 27, 28, and 29th, is a gorgeous guesthouse perched on a hill overlooking the river valley.
My personal friend, Ahmed, was born in this village and built Irocha from the ground up. He has created a really special space and I know you will love it. The earthen walls provide a deep sense of calm and peace. See www.irocha.com for more details.
Spending three nights in this tranquil valley will lets us rest and recharge. Possible activities include: yoga, hiking, exploring the nearby villages, visiting an ancient Kasbah on the hilltop overlooking the valley, cold water submersion training in the pool, hammam sessions, and more.
On the morning of the 30th we will set off and head south towards the Sahara desert. Ahmed will be our personal tour guide as we explore the southern edge of Morocco. The exact details for this period are still being worked out but will likely include:
- exploring cultural sites,
- maybe riding a camel,
- Acro photo shoots,
- delicious food,
- laughs, and community spirit.
This week will be co-created by all of us and is bound to be a good time. Our route will definitely include Zagora, Ouarzazate, and the Draa Valley.
Prerequisite: Be open to random adventures!
We will return to Irocha to sleep on the 4th of May. Plan to fly out of Marrakech from the 5th onward. It is a three hour taxi ride from Irocha to the Marrakech airport (RAK).
