Overview


Set amongst the middle Atlas, the Ahansal is one of the most scenic spots we have ever been kayaking and it presents a perfect opportunity to learn to kayak. People often see our safety kayakers on trips and think “wow, that looks cool” and think how they too would love to learn how to kayak… but preferably in a warm climate! This is an opportunity to learn a great new skill from some of the best kayakers in the world on a stunning and relaxed river, and with beautiful weather to top it all. Experience the adrenaline rush when you take on your first white water sucessfully… what a buzz. And on your last 2 days through a stunning, steep sided gorge where you will experience a tranquility you’ll never find anywhere else as you look up to the deep blue sky… you and your boat now in perfect unison. And when you reach the lake, Bin El Ouidane, quiet reflection on your personal achievement as you sit back and take in the scenery in all it’s splendour. This is a trip for those wanting something more than just a holiday.

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.
