Morocco

Morocco is one of those countries that changes and surprises you.

For solo female travelers, however, traversing the country alone can be just a little intimidating. That’s why we put together this awesome women’s only group adventure, covering the highlights of this incredible country.

Join us on a wild and beautiful adventure in Morocco this fall. Our trip will begin and end in Marrakesh, and where we will make our way to the high Atlas Mountains, spend a night under the stars in the Sahara Desert, explore the colorful markets of Fez, and experience the tranquility of lovely Chefchaouen (the blue city).

Please note, as we are covering wide ground in Morocco, we will have to make several long drives to get to/from most destinations.
