Starting in bustling Marrakesh, seek some shade at the peaceful Majorelle Gardens in Gueliz, before indulging in some fashion inspiration at the Yves Saint Laurent Museum. After spending some time meandering through the Marrakesh medina, head to the Atlas Mountains where lush valleys and adobe houses dot the landscape. A certified guide is essential whether for a half or full-day trek or for a hike to the summit of Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa. Next, venture to coastal Essaouira, known as the windy city, for some relaxed horseback riding along the beach. Don’t miss the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and learn to cook homemade tajines during a hands-on cooking class.
