Retreats & holidays in Morocco

So why Morocco?

Ah, so many reasons! The year-round sunshine, for starters; even in December and January, day-time temperatures are around 20 degrees, with seven hours' sunshine, and crisp, sharp nights, when fires are lit and stars burn bright. Even after many years of travelling here, this country retains its magic.

Morocco's visceral 'otherness' pulls us awake: the vivid colours, quality of light, smells of wood smoke and incense, the sight of camels by the road side and donkeys in the medieval alleyways. All this merges to create a feast for the senses; all after just over three hours' flying time, and no time difference or jet-lag!

We run a varied selection of yoga holidays and retreats; mindfulness retreats; and yoga and walking holidays in Morocco. Please see the summary below or go to our schedule page to see our full list of retreats.
