Intrepid Travel has a new partnership with the Moroccan National Tourism Office and is working on helping the country increase its visitor numbers by creating four new trips.
“We are thrilled to be launching this new partnership with MNTO, investing more in the development of tourism in my home country,” says Hala Benkhaldoun, Morocco general manager for Intrepid Travel, in a press statement. “Morocco is an extremely special place – one that more of the world should have the chance to see,” she adds.
Intrepid Travel’s All-New Adventures
The company’s new trips include off-the-beaten-path adventures through the country’s Happy Valley, or Ait Bougmez region, in the High Atlas Mountains. Intrepid (ha) travelers will find themselves crossing the country’s third-largest peak by foot during the Trekking in Morocco Happy Valley in High Atlas trip, 8 days of exploring waterfalls, ancient ruins and more, with stops for homecooked meals in rural villages.
Classic Morocco, another 8-day adventure, includes visits to the sacred Hassan II Mosque and the Roman ruins of Volubilis. Accommodations are in a solar-powered campground set up among the sand dunes and the trip includes hiking, a Tawesna teahouse visit and an exploration of Marrakech. One Week in Morocco: Sahara and Atlas Mountains consists of 8 days planned out exclusively for 18- to 29-year-olds, letting them sample the best of Intrepid’s Morocco products and create insane memories (and Insta feeds). Mt. Toubkai Long Weekend, meanwhile, is a 5-day trek to climb the highest peak in North Africa accompanied by expert guides, spend the night at an authentic mountain refuge at Toubkal base camp with like-minded trekkers and enjoy home-cooked meals along the way. Other experiences and tours include a M’goun Valley Henna Ceremony with the local Naquasha women and a Taman’Art Space visit tour with a local artist.
