Here in magical Morocco we have the perfect destination for a very relaxed, week long kayaking holiday. Set in the magnificent Middle Atlas mountain range the river Ahansal gushes fresh from the rocks and runs deep through a dramatic river gorge, you’ll feel like you are starring in a movie. This remote river journey travels through some stunning scenery and is the perfect antidote to those winter blues. A chance to dust off the cobwebs from your kayak and paddle clear warm waters, beneath blue skies, in a truly intoxicating location. Of course you can also try out one of our up to date playboats which we will be more than happy to provide for you. And after your river adventure we then take you out to the coast to enjoy the surf and relax on a gorgeous stretch of beach near Essaouira. And in addition a chance to explore the mystical city of Marrakech, get lost in the souqs and marvel at the snake charmers. Morocco will delight you in so many ways. Other trips similar to this (for beginner kayakers) is our Morocco Kayak School.
Arrive Marrakech and dine at Djeema el Fna. Hotel for the night.

We suggest that all of our clients from the UK and Europe check out the best deals on Skyscanner which will list all options from your nearest airport. Many “low cost” airlines such as Easyjet have excellent options from London, Edinburgh and Manchester and Ryanair from other airports in the UK. Scheduled flights can be taken with Royal Air Maroc from North America into Casablanca and then connecting flights through to Marrakech. We have all the gear for your paddling trip, but feel free to bring your own paddle and personal paddling gear except your boat! Please note to fly in on Day 1 as listed below (anytime) and depart on the last day (anytime). We can of course organise extra nights for you if that gives you cheaper flight options.
