This twin centre trip divides your time between Marrakech and the pretty coastal town of Essaouira. As well as discovering these two mainstays of Morocco, you'll also learn all about argan nuts and the production of argan oil, and in the process gain deeper insights into life in rural Morocco, as well as Moroccan culture and traditions. Argan oil has been used for centuries in Morocco in both cooking and as a remedy, but with its increasing popularity in the west it is becoming more important to the Moroccan economy.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
