With desert dunes, mountain peaks, ancient cities, and rich culture Morocco is a destination like no other. This gateway to sub-Saharan Africa is a country of rich diversity and warm hospitality mixing centuries-old tradition with a firm view towards the future. We will begin in Marrakech and explore the labyrinth medinas, excellent restaurants, and visits with local artisans. We will be dazzled by the snake charmers as we imbibe the ubiquitous fresh pressed mint tea and take in everyday life in this bustling city. From Marrakech will be driven to the nearby Stone Desert where we will sleep in gorgeously designed desert tents.
In total, we will be walking for 6 days through the almond blossomed hills of Málaga and then onward through the olive groves of central Andalucia. We will walk an average of 7 miles per day, finishing with informal lunches and then enjoying rest and relaxation in the afternoons in the surroundings of our hotels.
Every year thousands of pilgrims embark on the Camino de Santiago, a route of ancient trails cutting through the heartlands of Spain with a grand entrance into Santiago in northwestern Spain. This journey, called the Camino Mozárabe is a route less traveled. Though officially recognized by the Spanish government as an authentic path of St. James, this camino has been called the "Other Camino.” Our Camino Mozárabe Part 3, from Salamanca to Santiago is open for registration and limited to only 15 pilgrims.
