Argan Oil Experience - Taroudant - MORARG0112

Agadir and Taroudant:

This is a short Tour that will take you from your arrival in Agadir in the south of Morocco to Taroudant in the Sous Valley. Taroudant is often called the “Grandmother of Morocco” and it was the capital of the Saadian dynasty in the 16th Century. It is the home of the Argan tree, which only grows in this area and is the centre for Argan Oil production. The production is organized in several Berber Womens’ cooperatives grouped under the brand name “Targanine”. They distribute three products, Arganati, a cooking oil, Arganium, a cosmetic oil and Amlou Beldi, the Berber version of Nutella!

You will spend time visiting the Berber cooperatives, meeting the Berber people and learning about their lives and beliefs and absorbing their culture. You will have time to see Taroudant, the ancient capital and onto Agadir before departing for home.

You may wish to extend your 5 day trip with 2 days at the Atlas Kasbah - a unique and relaxing experience!
