Akorn Morocco Latest Update
With summer right around the corner, we are seeing major improvements promising a great Q3/Q4 of 2021. Although the border situation remains unchanged, the government issued a recent statement with the following updates:
- Curfew is now pushed to 23:00
- Restaurants and similar are now allowed a 75% capacity instead of 50%
- All hotels are fully open
- Monuments to reopen imminently
While it is still mandatory to obtain a circulation authorization to move freely around the country (which we can easily arrange for our guests), we are now nearly back to normal. In fact, we have successfully operated 2 groups over the past week in a splendid tour combining Fes, the Sahara Desert and Marrakech. The efficiency of the execution on the ground alongside the great feedback received from the guests is the last indicator we needed to announce to all of our partners that we are now fully ready to start promoting circuits again vs one-stop destination.
We feel that now is the right time to book as we still have fantastic ongoing special offers while hotels are quickly filling up.
To access Morocco, the requirements so far remain the same as previously shared:
- ONLY citizen with no visa requirement are allowed to visit the country (you can find a detailed list here)
- A negative PCR test dated no earlier than 72 hours prior to departure (of the last flight-leg)
- A valid hotel reservation or for business travel an invitation letter from the Moroccan company visited
- Travel on one of the “special flights” currently operated to Morocco (please check with us for a day-to-day updated status)
- Present on arrival a pre filled “passenger health form” completed on Morocco National Airport Authority – Health form and printed prior to arrival
We hope with these splendid updates we will be seeing more of your support soon.
Marrakech Museum of Culinary Art
In the heart of the Medina of Marrakech, the new Museum of Culinary Art has opened its doors to all foodies out there! Showcasing a wide range of traditional Moroccan meals, ranging from appetizers to main courses all the way to deserts: learn the history and story behind each dish and flavor. The museum also offers cooking classes, in addition to an entire “street food” section where guests can try out local treats.
Wine Pairing at Chateau Roslane - Meknes
Although it’s not the most obvious choice, Morocco is considered to have the best natural potential for producing high-quality wines, due to its high mountains and cooling influence from the Atlantic. Visit one of the stunning vineyards located between the foothills of the Rif, the Middle Atlas Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. This area is known for producing powerful, full-bodied, fruity and expressive wines for over 2000 years. Depart early with your driver-guide and upon arrival in Meknes, visit the wine cellars of Celliers de Meknes winery and Chateau Roslane to learn how the wine is stored. Next visit the tasting room, and as you sip away on your glass, chat with the owners and winemakers about their crops, wines and passion for the industry. Picturesque and breathtaking views of the green vines and blue skies surround you. To conclude the trip, enjoy a Gourmet Moroccan lunch in a beautiful setting before heading back to your hotel.
Sightseeing by Sidecar
Guests can now enjoy an off-the-beaten-track tour of Marrakech, by vintage sidecar. They can discover the red city from a unique vantage point, weaving in and out of the Medina's streets and alleys. The sidecar is comfortable and allows guests to experience the magic of Marrakech between the faily life and historic monuments. They watch the world whizz by and enjoy the wind in their hair. This tour can also be organized outside of Marrakech in places such as palmgrove and Agafay desert.
New Flight: Casablanca to Boston
From June 2019, Royal Air Maroc launched direct flights from Boston to Casablanca. The new connection between these two cities facilitates access to Morocco from the East coast. Flights are scheduled 3 days per week for now (Monday, Thursday & Saturday).
Created by the famous multimedia artist André Heller, this garden is an invitation to contemplation and serenity. Located 30 minutes from Marrakech city center, Anima offers guests a fine mix of nature and art where colors and forms lead them on a fascinating journey. They should walk slowly, breath in the fresh air and let themselves be mesmerized by paints, photos and many other artistic pieces. Finally, we recommend they take a seat at Coffee Paul Bowles to taste their Moroccan pastries and traditional mint tea.
The Mesmerising North
Explore the blue city of Chefchaouen, featured as one of the places to visit in 2016 by Conde Nast Travel. Discover its gorgeous alleyways all painted in mesmerizing blue colors. Then, your journey will bring you back in time, you will wonder in the labyrinthine 9th century medina of Fes and learn Moroccan handcrafts and Arabo-Andalusian architecture.
