Program

Day 1: Marrakech

The driver will meet you at the airport in Marrakech to then transfer you to the riad to rest and freshen up. From 3 to 6 p.m., a Moroccan chef will explain and you will cook together Moroccan traditional food. Dinner and accommodations in a riad inside the Medina.

  • 08:00 - 09:00 Vinyasa flow yoga

After breakfast your driver will meet you at the reception, you start visiting the medina (old town) of Marrakech, at 11:30, you are going to start driving through the highway to Agadir, a stop on the way for lunch at one of the rest aires, then continue to the panoramic view of Agadir Ofelia, then few minutes to the hotel. Yin yoga session, dinner, and accomodation will be at a beautiful charming guest house.

Day 3: Agadir - Massa Parc - Mirleft

  • 08:00 - 09:00 Vinyasa flow yoga

You leave Agadir to head south, you make a stop at the Souss Massa National Park to explore the coastal wilderness and fantastic bird-watching opportunities. The park covers the coastal strip of 65 km long and 5 km wide.

The Massa lagoon is one of the important bird sanctuaries in Morocco and home to flamingoes, bald ibises, sandgrouse, cranes, ducks and many other residents and migratory birds. Lunch in the village of Massa. When you continue going south, notice the change of colors in the surrounding landscape. The earth becomes red, the trees get lower, gradually turning into shrubs.

Within a couple of hours, you reach a small coastal village of Mirleft located 2 km inland from the ocean. Mirleft is a good place to relax, there is not a lot to do in the village, but there are a few things to do in the surrounding area. Although the place is popular with Moroccans during the summer, and with Europeans spending time here in winter, the area is still not touristy and nature has been preserved untouched.

Go to the large Mirleft beach to admire the views of the vast spaces of the ocean and the sunset, Yin yoga! Accommodations and dinner will be in a hotel.

Day 4: Mirleft - Legzira - Sidi Ifni - Mirleft

  • 08:00 - 09:00 Vinyasa flow yoga

Leave Mirleft after breakfast. The picturesque road from Mirleft to Legzira and then further to Sidi Ifni goes through the mountains, then crosses the wide valleys. Legzira is only 10 km south of Mirleft on the rocky coast. It is famous for its huge red-orange colored arches carved by the ocean in coastal cliffs.

The place is still not particularly known to the general public, but well known among surfers and paragliders. Picnic at the beach or a café. Sidi Ifni is a little coastal town with an interesting history and eclectic Moorish Art Deco architecture. It was the last Moroccan city surrendered by Spain in 1969.

It was called Santa Cruz de la Mar Pequeña and was kept under Spanish control even after Moroccan independence in 1956. Spain resisted a series of Moroccan attacks to take the territory in the Ifni War of 1957-58. It eventually ended in 1969.

There is no special tourist infrastructure here, but you can walk in the old Spanish town and join your Yin yoga class. Dinner at a restaurant, accommodations as per the previous night.

Day 5: Mirleft - Oued Assaka - Plage Blanche - Geulmim - Mirleft

Today, you leave Mirleft early after breakfast to head south to the amazing wild Plage Blanche, you pass once more through Sidi Ifni to get to the river of Oued Assaka, here you trade the main road for a scenic off-road that goes along the beach.

You will make stops for great panoramic views along the road. Arrive at la Plage Blanche around lunchtime, you will help prepare your picnic. After lunch, have a long walk along the 48 km long beach, Nella-Yoga can also help organize a meditation session at the beach. In the afternoon, you start driving back to Mirleft via a different road that passes by the city of Guelmim to arrive in Mirleft early evening before dinner Yin yoga session and accommodation is at the same hotel.
