This is a full day outside the chaos of Marrakech to discover Moroccan and Berber culture. After a 9am pickup from your hotel we head up towards the mighty Atlas Mountains taking scenery roads. First stop is the local weekly farmers market, described as a colorful and lively experience where besides the usual fruits, veggies and meat stalls you also have the hairdresser, dentist, chiropractor. If you fancy a camel ride we can stop at a trusted place where after the ride we share a mint tea under a Berber tent. Then in the next valley we visit the women organ oil cooperative to discover how this special nut from Morocco is processed. The cooperative also provide living wages for single women.Then we carry on driving on various mountains roads,stopping whenever you want and having the chance to distribute school furniture or small items of clothing to local children. Lunchtime is spent at a Berber family house for an organic lunch often voted as the best one from the holidays .
