Welcome to the Active Travel Adventures podcast where you'll find inspiration to lead a bigger life through adventure travel.

On each show we explore exciting multi-day active vacations from around the world where you have to MOVE!  You'll have to hike, bike, paddle, horseback ride (sometimes in combination) to propel yourself to the next destination.

If you're tired of typical vacations and are looking for a more authentic experience by exploring the landscapes and meeting the locals on your vacation, then this is your podcast!

All adventures will be doable for someone reasonably fit (I'm a 58 year old woman and I have to be able to do them).

Be sure to visit to see photos and get more details, plus you can download the FREE Travel Planners for each destination!  These handy summaries summarize the tips and provide all sorts of helpful links to help you plan your trip.  You get them automatically if you subscribe to the newsletter.

072 Adventures in Morocco : Marrakesh, Chefchaouen, the Sahara & Atlas Mountains and more!

Our visit to Morocco today focuses on the exotic culture as well as hiking in the Atlas Mountains. We take a camel trek in the Sahara Desert.  We visit Marrakesh, Chefchaouen, Casablanca, and Berber villages.  We take a cooking class, take a night street food tour, explore a Kasbah, watch craftsmen make their wares, such as wool rugs, tanned leather goods, mosaic tile work and pottery.  We tour a massive mosque in Casablanca.

I interview our guide, Chama, about what it’s like to be a modern Berber Muslim woman in Morocco, and as a hiking and cycling guide for her native country.

I tell you about how I chose the wrong tour company for me and what I would recommend for you.  We talk about safety and other hints on enjoying your visit.  You can also check out my companion podcast episode, the Adventure Travel Show podcast, where I did a show on How To Choose a Tour Company, which covers all the research I did to make sure I don’t make the same expensive mistake in the future.  Get details and listen to this show here.
