Here are 3 Green Travel Ideas for Morocco:
- Research local experts and tours. Find a local tour that appeals to your interests. If you’re interested in shopping, consider Maryam Montague, Moroccan lifestyle and cultural expert and interior design consultant. She is the owner of boutique hotel Peacock Pavilions. Montague has hosted My Marrakesh, a guided shopping tour. The workshop and shopping excursion included a cultural guided tour of Marrakesh, wine tasting and a rooftop henna party.
- Take a photo safari, course or trip. Plan out your own photo safari in your destination. Check out available photo courses being offered. If you’re a family of photographers, The Adventure Company now offers a new family photo experience – MOROCCO: Kids in the Kasbahs – Young Photographer. Professional photographer Sam Oakes will lead family photo tours in Marrakech’s alleyways, souks and markets and the beaches of Essaouira.
- Go trekking in the mountains. Mountain travelers worldwide come to Morocco for the Atlas Mountains. Whether you’re an experienced mountain traveler or not, you’ll likely find the right trekking trip for you with a company like KE Adventure. The company’s Morocco trips include Edge of Sahara Trek; Exploring the Anti Atlas; Four 4,000 metre Peaks of Toubkal; Jebel Sahro Winter Sunshine Trek and Mgoun Traverse.
