When is Ramadan in 2018?

In 2018, Ramadan will take place from 15 May to 14 June. This is the holiest month of the year for Muslims around the world. Many festivals are marked as Islamic Holidays, which may cause some disturbance to your travels around this time. Some regular services may not be available or open during the daytime, such as restaurants or coffee bars. Please consider your travel arrangements carefully.

What's the tipping culture like in Morocco?

As Morocco has a tipping culture, travellers are expected to tip small amounts for most services, so please be prepared. Your leader will suggest methods and amounts to tip during the trip, but it is left to the group to decide the details.

How active is this trip?

This is an active trip packed with activities such as cycling, white-water rafting, kayaking and trekking. To fully enjoy it, you’ll need to be in a good state of health and fitness. To participate in the water-based experiences, you’ll need to be a confident swimmer.

The trip involves some early starts and long days due to the itinerary being packed with lots of exciting activities.

On Day 3 you will have a chance to discover the coast of Morocco on a horse back. While horses are great animals, we understand not everyone feels confident on their back. Please make sure you will make your Tour Leader aware of any issues before the start of this activity.

Day 2 & 4 will be based on cycling activities. To fully enjoy it, you must be a confident cyclist.

Day 5 will take you in the hearth of Atlas Mountains. It’s a long day in remote area, but certainly well worth it. Please expect some ups and down while trekking in the mountains!

What's the weather like in Morocco?

The weather in Morocco can be extreme. Summer temperatures can be uncomfortably hot, especially for those who aren’t accustomed to the heat, so please consider what time of year you travel carefully. If you do travel in the warmer months then pack layers to cover you from the sun, bring the necessary sun protection and drink plenty of water. The desert can also get cold at night, so remember to bring base layers and warm clothing.
