Days 1 Olives and spices everywhere

Jut out into an olive & spices market where flavours and aromas will please all of your senses at a time. After the stroll, trying moroccan lamb in a restaurant with rooftop will be great to take perspective and integrate all the intensity.

This experience takes place in Marrakech. Let yourself go and be taken to the main spices markets, hear the story behind them and the use in the art of Moroccan cooking. After one hour of wandering, listening, taking pictures and immersing yourself, let's go for a relaxed time. We go up to a wonderful views terrace where we will be served original moroccan food. We will try harira, a berber vegetable tagine and juicy salads. Moroccan teas, the views and a good selection of wines will make your day.

Days 2 You can be a Masterchef

If you need to master yourself, this is the moment to do it. You will learn from Masterchef Morocco, feeling her passion for moroccan food while cooking typical dishes. At the end, a great feast will be waiting for you.

Halima Mourid was the winner of the first ever Masterchef competition happening in Morocco. She classified by creating a Paella using couscous, we found that very creative! She has published five books, appears in a TV channel, and is adored by a large crowd of Moroccans who stop her in the street no matter where she goes. Being with her is like finding peace, seeing her cooking is definitely something special. She tells stories about culture, people, food, ingredients and origins of moroccan dishes. She opens her secrets about the best couscous for you to cook at home. 

Days 3 Exquisite oysters for exquisite taste buds

Tasting this delicacy in an oyster farm located by the seaside is a real travel for your senses. Enjoy the surf atmosphere and dare to take a bath, even in winter if your skin is ready for Atlantic Ocean strength.

Oualidia is the oysters capital of Morocco. It is famous for its crustaceans and also for the reserve sapphire lagoon that cultivates the oysters. This calm blue lagoon stays totally unaware of the enormous Atlantic pounding at the rocks behind. 

We drive to Oualidia, which is located 198 km (120 miles) away from Marrakech. There are 7 small oysters farming companies who daily care about the growing of this tasty gem. The minimum cultivation time is one and a half years and the maximum around four years. With the help of our moroccan ambassador we are allowed to enter the space of one of this cultivation areas, standing on a boat to reach the nets and hear about the caring needed over the years of cultivation.

After this short journey, you must try fresh oysters. We relax and enjoy the sun in front of the lagoon while tasting oysters and enjoying fresh fish and salads for lunch. Pure oysters with drops of lemon if you wish. So soft and slippery in your mouth that you will not want the plate to finish. Do not worry, you can eat as much oysters as you like. Enjoy the moment. The flavors are so authentic and pure that the taste will remain in your mind for the rest of your trip. 

Days 4 Relax day in Oualidia

Today is your free day to relax in the hotel or around the natural reserve lagoon located in front of your hotel, where for sure you can swim. Just enjoy your day.

Days 5 Safi village: Precious land in your hands

Do you imagine cooking authentic moroccan recipes in a genuine tajin? The moment for you to get an authentic one painted by you is now. You just need to free your creativity and love for good food and the result will beautifully emerge in your hands.

This pottery workshop takes place in a little port city called Safi. It is a road trip which takes you to the heart of moroccan cooking practices and ancestry habits. The journey is very enjoyable as you go through villages, countryside, and you stop for a tea and several breads and sauces degustation.

After this inspiration we visit Safi's port city and eat in a restaurant by the sea, where you keep thinking how your crockery will look like at home and who you will invite to use it first.

 

Days 6 Essaouira: Argan oil for your skin and soul

Deep into an argan-oil mill owned by a group of women who will gently show how this treasure of nature comes to life and offer you a sampling so that you can enjoy its benefits for body and soul. Eating fish in Essaouira and walking through its historical streets will be the golden brooch to feel a deeper connection with this wonderful land.

Essaouira is the relaxed alternative to being in active Marrakesh. The name in reality means "little village" and it is a paradise for painters as everything is blue and white and reminds you to the lovely streets of any cyclade greek island. It is 190 km (118 miles) away from Marrakech and the trip is very enjoyable as you go through villages, countryside, and we stop for a tea and several breads and sauces degustation.

Afterwards we go to visit the port, wander around the village and finally eating at the port in one of the most emblematic restaurants of this village.

Days 7 Drive Back to Marrakech - End of the trip
