Everyone has a different idea of what is fun but I have put together some of the activities in Morocco that we think will make your experience more fun and enjoyable. Sure you can do city tours, go shopping, and enjoy great meals but when you get hands on and get to have great experiences it makes an even bigger impact on your time.
This list of fun things to do in Morocco will be updated as I come across (and remember!) more of the interesting things I think others will enjoy too. I hope that this list gets you started!
The windy city of Essaouira is known for its excelling kite surfing opportunities. It’s also a good spot to learn how to kitesurf if the sport is new to you. This is a really cool and fun way to experience Morocco – and something not many people expect!
If you want to tackle some rock climbing then Climb Morocco is a must to consider. They offer all types of climbing from beginners to advanced and are true, trained professionals. Not only will you have a great experience but can feel confident that they know exactly what they are doing.
Sandboarding is something a lot of people try out when they’re in the Sahara desert but you don’t have to make that long trip to test it out. With this activity, you can hit the dunes in Agadir and have fun sandboarding! Plus you get lunch too!
Fez is one of the Imperial capitals of Morocco and has a reputation as being a culinary kingpin. So it makes sense if you’re in this city that you try out a cooking class. Learn more about Moroccan food and get a hands on activity with skills you can take home and try out over and over again.
For the traveler that seeks out rest and relaxation this is a fantastic idea. Enjoy a day of wellness and yoga at a riad in the medina of Marrakech. Lunch and a massage are also included – talk about a total day of bliss.
If the arts of Morocco are something that catches your fancy than this tour is something you’ll want to consider. Learn about the traditional works plus see the craftsman up close and personal. While you can purchase items, there’s no pressure to do so.
For those who are curious about the co-habitation and life of people of various religious backgrounds this tour gets below the surface of what you might expect. Morocco has been the crossroads of cultures and religions for decades and the stories may surprise you.
Ever wondered how Arabic calligraphy is done? This is your chance to learn more and try your hand at the practice. In this short course you’ll meet with a master calligrapher and learn a few tricks of this art form.
Sure you can head to any souk in Morocco and buy a pair of the famous flat backed slippers but what if you could make your own – you can! With the help of a traditional cobbler you’ll choose your leather and make your own shoes start to finish!
Are you surprised to learn there are wineries in Morocco? It’s true! The northern regions near Fez are where most of the wine-making facilities in the country are. If you’re someone that enjoys experiencing a place through a local wine tasting this is something well worth considering.
Morocco is awash with amazing photo opportunities however it can be hard to take pictures as many times locals are very reluctant to be in pictures. On this tour you’ll be able to shoot some great shots in Tangier and Asilah with the help of a local guide.
I can’t leave this off! Try our food tour when you’re in Marrakech as a great option for not only eating and experiencing Moroccan food culture but to meet other travelers and gain insight to the Marrakechi way of life. We also have day tours and other options too so check it out!
I hope that these fun things to do in Morocco give you some new ideas and inspiration for how you might want to spend your time when you visit.
