Relax in the hammam like a real local, drink mint tea in an exotic garden and feast on a steaming tajine: feel free to ignore your western habits in Marrakesh. Then return home feeling full of energy. The outfits are inspired by local influences, ranging from colourful textiles to magnificent riads. Which trend is for you?
Did you know that ‘Rock the Casbah’ by The Clash refers to a period during which western music was banned in some Arab countries?
Explore new cultures? There’s nothing you like more. And preferably where there’s some sunshine. Then consider a trip to Marrakesh, the colourful city. Choose your outfit to suit the city with shades of green like mint tea, white like the buildings and in a host of browns like the earthenware. Then you will blend in beautifully. And don’t forget your sunglasses: the weather is always amazing.
Did you know that the tallest peak in Morocco is over 4,000 metres high and that the lowest point is about 50 metres below sea level?
Do you like walking through a volcanic landscape and a steep climb doesn't bother you? Then head towards Roque Nublo in Gran Canaria, one of the most beautiful natural rock formations in the world. Along unpaved paths, you walk towards this 80-metre-high natural monument. At the top, you have a beautiful view over the special landscape. When the weather is nice you can even see Mount Teide, Tenerife’s largest volcano.
Did you know that you can also see the dunes and the Meloneras lighthouse from the Roque Nublo?
At the top you’ll find not only a beautiful view, but also an overwhelming silence. You'll be quiet yourself.
A trip to Gran Canaria isn’t complete without a visit to Santa Lucía. This historic town is surrounded by rugged mountainous country, including a fortress with carved-out living caves and tombs. The church of Santa Lucía, in honour of the saint of the same name, is in the central square. This church isn’t without a shady past; it was demolished twice in the past. But as the saying goes, the third time’s the charm!
Did you know that you will find a beautifully landscaped garden around the fort (which is now a museum)? There are many native plants and fruit trees for you to admire here.
Walking through La Fortaleza (Gran Canaria) is a bit like travelling back in time. The indigenous peoples kept the European conquerors at bay from these rock formations with natural and artificially carved caves. Climb the steep rocks, explore all the tunnels, and enjoy the endless colour palette in this beautiful setting. Catch your breath at the visitors’ centre while you discover what happened here centuries ago.
Did you know that La Fortaleza is one of the best preserved fortified settlements in Gran Canaria?
If you want to experience Gran Canaria like its (primaeval) inhabitants, stay in a local cave house near the Roque Nublo. You can’t get any purer than that. Sit inside by the fireplace; step outside and you’ll be right in the middle of nature. There aren’t any other houses as far as the eye can see. After a day full of adventures, you can continue your stargazing.
Did you know that the Canary Islands are internationally renowned for their extraordinary stargazing conditions?
Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground.
Not only can you sunbathe or collect shells on the beach, you can also set your most athletic dreams in motion. Go crazy and work out barefoot. That sand between your toes is the best free scrub you can get. Need some refreshment after all that work? Then dive into the sea!
Did you know that walking on loose sand is twice as hard as walking on relatively hard ground?

It opens up a whole new dimension of fun!
Do you long for the icy wind on your face, the feel of fresh ripples under your skis (or board), and the smell of fresh snow, mountains, and sunscreen? Then, just like us, you are one of the many winter sports enthusiasts! Start getting ready now so you can be on the slopes once the first fresh snow has fallen. Don a pair of fashionable ski goggles to protect your eyes from the reflective snow and layers of thermal clothing for icy days and defy the mountains.
