Weekend Trips

Qalam wa Lawh regularly organizes weekend trips to all major destinations within Morocco. Some of them are:

Fes, Meknes, Volubilis. During this trip you will see two of Morocco’s ancient capitals: Fes and Meknes, and will discover the archeological site of Volubilis that features the best preserved Roman ruins in this part of North Africa. Fes, the cultural capital of Morocco is most famous with its ancient medina, a UNESCO world heritage site, that is believed to be the world’s largest car-free urban area, and Al Karaouine, the oldest university in the world. It is also a center of famous Moroccan crafts, like zellij (mosaics), ceramics, wood-carving and others, where you can watch their production in real life.

Northern Excursion: Tanger and Chefchaouen. You will visit the unique city of Tanger, Morocco’s gate to Europe and crossroads of cultures and civilizations, stroll down the streets of its old medina, visit the Kasbah, drink a tea in the legendary café Hafa with magnificent view on the strait of Hibraltar. A small charming city of Chefchaouen has the prettiest blue and white medina in Morocco . It’s a true living postcard! During this trip you will enjoy the picturesque landscapes of Rif mountains, Atlantic and Mediterranean coast, visit Hercules caves and see the meeting point of the Atlantic ocean and the Mediterranean sea.

Marrakech and Essaouira. Visit the most popular touristic destination of Morocco – the red city of Marrakech, with its famous Jemaa el Fna square (UNESCO world heritage site), its museums, palaces and gardens, and take a rest from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech in the peaceful charmy coastal city of Essaouira.

Merzouga (desert trip). The desert trip is probably the most exciting impression that you can get in Morocco! Take a camel ride deep in the magnificent sand dunes of Merzouga, see the desert sunset and starry sky, dance and sing with bedouines beside the campfire, spend a night in bedouine tent, feel the eternity as you watch the sunrise in the silence of dunes.

NB! These trips are not included in the price of immersion programs!
