Wander Women Morocco:
Blue Pearl Extension
October 4-6, 2024
Join us for a three-day retreat extension to explore the picturesque town of Chefchaouen, nestled into the Rif mountains of northwestern Morocco — let Wander Women transport you to a realm of serenity and artistic inspiration.
Your return trip will whisk you to this small-town tranquil oasis, the perfect place to unwind from your action packed Morocco: A Surf, Yoga + Adventure Retreat. Dubbed the “Blue Pearl” of Morocco, Chefchaouen’s blue-washed (and oh-so instagrammable) cobblestone streets blend seamlessly into its crisp blue skies and fresh mountain air.
Not just blue in color, but also in spirit, we’ll explore this town at a slower pace, share stories over delicious local meals and stretch out our bodies on rooftops with the most incredible views. With a few Wander Women special activities sprinkled in, picture yourself being inspired by your surroundings while you paint + sip, follow journaling prompts and meditate on the color blue (kidding… sort of!) It’s always hard to say goodbye at the end of a retreat, but every moment here will be another brushstroke on your canvas of adventure.
The Blue Pearl Extension takes place immediately following our Morocco: A Surf, Yoga + Adventure Retreat from October 4-6, 2024. The cost is $950 for a shared room and $1150 for a single room. Please note — this extension will finish in Casablanca, or, for an additional fee, you can be dropped off in Tangier, Fes, or Rabat if you wish to continue your Morocco adventure.

Subject to change, but you’re going to have a magical time — here’s the general idea!
Day 9 (continued): Buckle up besties, we’re roadtripping to Chefchaouen. You’ll be feeling anything but blue as you take in the city’s famous shades of azure, cerulean, cobalt, indigo, and ultramarine! So picturesque, even your camera will do a double take. After checking into our homey-chic riad, we embark on our first walk through the winding blue alleyways, with dinner at a local favorite where we can soak in the evening ambiance.
Day 10: Start your day with a morning walking tour that’s like stepping into a real-life fairy tale. While it has a larger-than-life reputation, the town center is tiny, and easy to explore exhaustively in a short time. Our local guide will lead you through the town’s highlights and unveil its hidden treasures — from the vibrant bustle of Plaza Uta el-Hammam to the tranquil grace of Ras Elma River, and of course, the bewitching blue-washed alleyways that earned Chefchaouen its well-deserved nickname. The rest of the day is yours to explore at your leisure. Fancy more of the town’s charm? Or maybe you’re up for a hike in the Rif Mountains? Shopping, a visit to the Spanish Mosque, or unwinding at a traditional hammam are also on the menu. The day is yours to savor!
When your feet and camera are ready to rest, we’ll head to the rooftop for a splash of painting guided remotely by our very own Lauren of Green Blanky Studios (yes, we’re talking paint-n-sip, featuring wine from our vineyard stop!) and some reflective journalling while we take in the city below. Followed by a slow and starry yoga session and our final family feast.
Day 11: Our Moroccan adventure comes to a close, but not without a final sun salutation and closing circle to reflect on all our experiences. We’re sending you off in style with a private transfer direct to Casablanca airport for your departures. But hey, it’s not goodbye — it’s “see you again!” Your memories, experiences, and the spirit of Morocco will travel with you, adding a splash of color to your journey ahead.
Where We’ll Stay and What We’ll Eat

Our postcard worthy riad embraces the natural elements of earth, light, and air, making it the perfect home base for this trip. Complete with a rooftop bar + restaurant (with panoramic city views!) and it’s own in-house hammam, you might not ever want to leave!
Breakfast will be provided each morning, leaving your lunch and dinner plans free for wherever your feet may take you! Wander with us to some trusted local eateries, or explore the winding alleys and sample local delicacies at your leisure — the choice is up to you.
