A trip to Morocco in November 2024 is now ready to book.

We are happy to announce that Vikki Tremblay has organized the next Adventures trip, which is now ready to book. It’s Morocco! Imagine exploring Casablanca’s Royal Palace and Marrakech’s markets, to camel-riding and glamping for the night in the Sahara or learning how to make tajine just like the locals. This exciting trip departs Nov. 21, 2024 for 12 amazing days.
