Itinerary

Day 1   

Arrival at Marrakech Menara Airport and travel by private car to our Riad in the historic Medina minutes walk from the famous square, Jamaa el Fna, where snake charmers, fortune tellers, monkeys, and musicians dwell among the many exotic items for sale. We eat dinner together and connect with our traveling sisters.

Days 2 & 3 

After breakfast, we travel over the High Atlas through the beautiful oasis along the Dades Valley. We spend relaxing nights at Kasbah Tebi in Ait Ben Haddou. Breathe yourself into the day with yogini Ahu in the morning. Throughout your day, discover with Luisa how connecting with your genius creates inspired photography.

Days 7 & 8

We travel toward Marrakech visiting Todgha Gorge along

the way. We spend two nights sleeping in pitch dark cave rooms at Auberge Le Festival. A chance for indulging in your own company. Expect yummy organic meals right from their garden. Amazing day hikes along the river where Nomads still live in primitive caves. 

Days 4, 5, 6, & 7 We journey by camel four days out into the dunes, living home free like Nomads that move from place to place. Imagine connecting with the simplicity of the beauty and solitude in the Sahara. We find moments to share our visions, create soul photography, explore creative writing with Ahu, and practice yoga. The warm campfires, lively stars, fresh air and magic await us. 

Day 9, 10 - We spend our last two nights in Marrakech. You'll have the opportunity to explore the Medina through your lens. Capture the soul and ancient mysticism of the Imperial Red City.

 

Day 11, we depart.
