Overview


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.

Entry and Exit Requirements

  • Are U.S. citizens permitted to enter? It depends
  • Air travel to and from Morocco remains restricted to specific categories of travelers. Citizens and residents of Morocco, U.S. citizens with reservations at Moroccan hotels, and business people invited by Moroccan companies are allowed to enter and depart. Special operation flights serving these passengers, including a direct flight on Royal Air Maroc between Casablanca (CMN) and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Washington Dulles Airport (IAD), will continue to operate under the Health State of Emergency. U.S. citizens wishing to return to the United States should book directly with the airline.

  • The Government of Morocco (GOM) has established pre-arrival COVID-19 testing requirements for all travelers entering Morocco.
