  • Make the most of the opportunity to learn some basic skills at a traditional rugweaving class.
  • Try your hand at preparing your own fresh khobz (flatbread), an essential part of every Moroccan breakfast.
The Morocco: Women's Expedition tour starts and ends in Marrakech. The Morocco: Women's Expedition is an adventure tour that takes 8 days taking you through Marrakech, Morocco and other destinations in Morocco.

Join Intrepid on our very first female-only adventure – an unforgettable expedition to the remote and less-travelled reaches of Morocco. Begin in Marrakech, where the wow-factor of the Maghreb comes in many forms, notably the spectacular Djemaa el-Fna town square. Then it’s off to the other Morocco, the one they don’t tell you about in the guidebooks. Break bread with Berber families in private homes in remote areas, see how an artist co-op is empowering female rug-weavers in small villages, take in the verdant beauty of the far-flung M’goun Valley, and enjoy the singing and dancing of Moroccan women in cultural ceremonies in small villages – far away from the bustle of the big towns. With all the hallmarks of a classic Intrepid adventure – local leadership, private transport, real life experiences – and an added focus on female travel and female empowerment, this is a unique opportunity for women to blaze the trail in an incredible but often conservative country – without compromising on safety.

Is this trip right for you:
  • This is a female-only expedition visiting special places and events that only women can access due to local customs and laws. For this reason, men are not allowed to book a spot on this tour.
  • This is an expedition, which means we will be exploring either a new territory or we will do it in a new way, or both. Please note that some things cannot be fully planned on such a trip therefore small changes to the itinerary may occur.
  • This expedition involves walking from 4 to a maximum of 7 hours on Days 3-6. The walk will lead you through picturesque valleys but the terrain may be unstable in places, rocky and hilly. Consider appropriate footwear and necessary clothing, including a warm jacket and rain coat.
  • Note that you are required to bring 3/4 season sleeping bag in order to keep warm at night. Even though you will be staying in guesthouses and gites, this type of accommodation may not be heated and therefore warm sleeping bag is essential.
  • Due to the villages and locations we will be visiting, accommodation on this expedition is basic. You will be sharing rooms with other female travellers. On Day 5 there are two big rooms to share so you may end up with 5 other females in one room.
  • Bathroom facilities on your trek are shared, but you can expect a hot shower each evening.
  • You will have a chance to participate in different activities, from rug-weaving to baking and make-up workshops. While this is not compulsory, we’d suggest you come prepared to share some fun times with other females while learning some often not-so-easy skills.
  • While trekking, your luggage will be transported on mules. You may not have instant access to your bags during the day so ensure you bring a day pack and carry essentials; sun-screen, water, camera, etc.
