An All-Inclusive Week
of Surf & Yoga
Our Moroccan surf and yoga adventure will be a journey of discovery, exploring longboarding (or any style/surfboard welcome!) on one of the best longboarding waves in the world. We'll ride some dreamy long waves that will capture your heart and free your soul, giving you time to work on your technique and connect to the ocean. Your week will be packed with fun, surfing, yoga, culture and goodness ... allowing you to just fall in love with life!
Each morning, we will awaken the mind, body and soul with an energising but mindful Hatha or Vinyasa yoga flow before hitting the waves for surfing and ocean therapy! Some evenings we will explore the meditative and profoundly restorative practice of Yin to heal the body and mind, leaving you in a blissful state, ready for the following day.
As well as Yoga and Surfing, we will explore the area, and there'll be lots on offer for you to go and explore yourself in your free time, from the local shops, cafes and attractions to day trips and the surrounding area, the beautiful scenery, beaches, culture and activities, filling our hearts with a sense of adventure.
Our guests truly enjoy our approach to surfing and yoga, as well as our incredible retreat destinations.
Come away with us and find your Wild & Free!
Your Moroccan surf and yoga adventure will be spent in a gorgeous beachfront luxury lodge with panoramic ocean views. A haven full of Moroccan charm and simplicity, located in the small fishing village overlooking what is known as the 'magic bay' where you will be surfing to your heart's content. Our beachfront haven in Imsouane is off the Atlantic coast of Morocco, about a 1.5-hour drive from Essaouira and 1.45-2hrs from Agadir (airports and local areas to visit). It's a unique spot known as a paradise for surfers of all levels, where you can find both beginner-friendly waves and challenging breaks for the more experienced surfers.
You will be served delicious locally sourced and home-grown healthy dishes from the venue's very own 'slow corner cafe'. 'Slow Food' is a movement that focuses on clean, locally prepared food that tastes good without harming the environment or your health. The Slow Food Movement encourages consumers to eat local and make eating a shared, social event. For those that know us at Wild & Free Adventures, we love our food and culture ...so, as well as the surfing here and location, this was another reason we fell in love with this spot!
Spend your daily free time as you choose, find treasures in the markets, beaches or fish markets, or simply relax with a book, enjoy the sea air as it awakens the soul. Travel further a field on your day off with lots of exciting places to visit and things to do and dive deeper into the Moroccan culture.

I am a solo traveller, do you get many solo travellers?Yes, in fact, most of our guests are solo travellers… Those that come back and join us on a retreat tend to come back with someone they met on a previous retreat/adventure and we get a lot of repeat customers who welcome you into the Wild & Free gang and love to share their first retreat experiences with you.
What are the arrival and departure times? Can I drop my bags off early?This varies from venue to venue, but typically arrival is between 5-6 pm and departure at 9 am. During coronavirus, we are unable to take early arrivals and bag drop-offs, and the departure time is to be adhered to, as we need to allow and respect the time needed for the wonderful cleaning team to get in and make all venues covid safe.
I do not have my own transport. Can I get to you by Public Transport?All our retreats and adventures are in accessible locations and can be reached by public transport. So, get in touch about the retreat or adventure you are looking to attend, and we can help you with this!

Could I extend my stay if I wanted to?We often have guests ask this question and if you contact us in enough time this can likely be arranged. All our retreats and adventures are in sought-after locations and often are fully booked way in advance. However we have been able to accommodate previous guests who’ve asked this and even if we couldn't accommodate you at the same venue, there might be some suggestions we could offer you nearby, so contact us at email@example.com
How big are your groups?It varies from retreat to retreat but on average 8-12 people. Wild & Free Adventures are all about small groups as we feel it enhances the experience and you get to know each other, we can spend time getting to know you all and it creates a much more comfortable and relaxed experience.
If I have any dietary requirements or allergies, can these be catered for?Our chefs can cater for all dietary requirements and we pride ourselves on this! We ask everyone for any dietary requirements upon booking and check again the week leading up to the retreat and things change! We even ask what your milk preferences are. It is important to us that you feel fully catered for and this is the beauty of having a private chef on our retreats!
Is there a sample schedule available for the retreat/adventure?Yes, and to give you one example: see a typical Surf & Yoga Retreat below.
