Where to Go Hiking in Morocco?
The choice of hiking trails in Morocco is almost endless. A large part of the African Atlas Mountains is located in Morocco and attracts many hikers with its spectacular valleys, peaks and mountain villages. During your hikes with us, you will mainly explore the western part of the Anti-Atlas and High Atlas. This part is the most accessible from our accommodation and offers countless highlights for mountain and nature lovers.
You don’t need to be an experienced mountaineer for the tours we take you on, nor do you need to have completed any altitude training beforehand. However, you should have a basic level of fitness and enjoy longer hikes. Because, as we all know, the best views always come with a little bit of effort 😉 .
Where to Go Surfing in Morocco?
Morocco is a surf mecca. Since the 70s, Thagazout in particular has been a real magnet for surfers from all over the world. Our Riad is located a little outside the hustle and bustle of Thagazout and Agadir in the small town of Tamraght. Tamraght is about an away hour from Agadir. Up and down the coast you will find surf spot after surf spot with perfect waves for beginners, advanced and pros.
Our surf instructors know the beaches better than their own bedrooms and know exactly where and when you’ll get the best waves. Whether it’s your first time in the waves or you’re already hopelessly addicted to surfing, our surf instructors will make sure you have the best time at your Surf & Hike Camp.
What our Guests Say
“Everything was just right from start to finish. Great accommodation, super surf instructors and equipment, perfect waves (even for absolute beginners), plenty of sun, delicious and healthy food, extra excursions, Moroccan cooking course, secret surf spots and much more.”
“The surfing was really great. We were actually driven to a different spot every day and mostly had fantastic conditions. The surf instructors were very dedicated, taught us a lot and it was always a lot of fun, also because they are up for any little fun. The surfing couldn’t have been better.”
Surf & Hike Camp -Day by Day
For a relaxed arrival, we will meet you at the airport in Agadir and take you to our cosy Riad in the small village of Tamraght. Here you can check into your room, drink your first Moroccan mint tea and enjoy the views from our roof terrace. In one direction, you look out over the sea and some of the surf spots that you will get to know in the coming week. In the other direction, you can see the silhouettes of the mountains in the hinterland. The perfect way to get in the mood for your surf and hike camp, right?
Depending on what time you arrive, we will already show you your surfing equipment and maybe catch some first waves.
Every night, our chefs will serve you fresh and tasty Moroccan dishes. There’s always different options you can choose from.
Because you need strength and energy for surfing, first thing in the morning we serve a hearty breakfast on our roof terrace. With your lunch package in your pocket, you’ll then head off to the surf spot. Our surf instructors choose the spot of every day according to the best conditions and waves. You don’t have to worry about your surfing equipment. Everything you need is right here on site.
We offer surf lessons for every surf level – no matter if you are a motivated beginner or an ambitious surf legend. The exact daily schedule of the individual courses can be found on the pages for the beginner surf camp, intermediate surf camp and surf guiding.
In the evening, you have the opportunity to relax your muscles with yoga.
After breakfast, you will head for the mountains. The Antiatlas, the ancient homeland of the Berbers, awaits you. On a 5-hour hike you will walk through an impressive gorge, along a dry riverbed, a wadi, covered by palm trees and citrus plants. Along the way, you will discover a castle and small Berber villages. During lunch, you can get to know the Berber way of life and their hospitality at close quarters. The hike is accompanied by a hiking guide who will take you off the beaten track and into the original Morocco.
In the afternoon, you visit Taroudant. Winding paths lead you into the Souk, the market, and through the handicraft quarters of the Medina. If there is something you are particularly interested in, your guide will adapt the tour according to your wishes.
Back in Tamraght, it’s back on the board and into the water. There are still a few surf spots around Taghazout and Agadir that are waiting to be discovered. Your surf instructor will give you helpful tips tailored to your ability and ensure that you can quickly improve your surfing skills.
Today we visit the Immouzer waterfalls.
Another day, another nature highlight. From the water of the ocean, we will find our way to a waterfall in the mountains. At 1,160 metres in the High Atlas, the waterfalls of Immouzer plunge into the depths. In the middle of the mountains, you can swim in water pools between palm trees and climb some rocks.
In the afternoon, we return to the Riad and head to the beach for one last sunset surf session.
After a week full of adventure, sun, sports and nature, it’s back home. We will take you to the airport for your individual journey home, or give you all the information you need for your onward journey.
