High in the Atlas Mountains, the enchanting Kasbah Bab Ourika overlooks a breathtaking landscape. 360-degree panoramic views? Indeed.  

From your hilltop lookout at the apex of the Ourika valley a feast of natural beauty awaits to melt your heart. Gaze down to the river and let the olive groves, oranges, and lemons lead your eyes on a colourful dance between the green fields all the way up to snowy mountain peaks dazzling in the sunlight.

The authentic charm of the Kasbah Bab Ourika makes relaxation easy. Whether you’re enjoying your individually decorated room, or unwinding by the secluded swimming pool, get ready to be warmed by the yummy Moroccan sun from dawn to dusk.

Hi, I'm Sammy!

I created BLITZ By Harper with four pillars in mind; FITNESS. MIND. COMMUNITY. FUN. These are the cornerstones and something every BLITZ class represents. It is more than just a workout programme, it's a community, it's working out for the body AND the mind.

Rebecca Harris - BLITZ Yoga Instructor

I discovered yoga in 2013 after years of strength and conditioning training left me wishing I could touch my toes. Through a consistent practice of yoga and meditation, I found the freedom to move in a way that I didn't think possible. 

Along with improving flexibility, I've gained strength, balance and connection, both on and off my mat.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS THE COVID CANCELLATION POLICY?

If we have to cancel the trip because of travel bans or restrictions, or if you have to cancel the trip because of a local lockdown, then you have the following options:

  • Request a full refund, no questions asked, up to 3 days in advance
  • Move your booking to April 13th-17th, 2022

If you have to cancel the trip because of a last-minute positive test or other personal issue unrelated to travel restrictions, you will need to make a claim with your travel insurance provider.

As an aside, you will need to have travel insurance to attend any of our trips. We would recommend that for the time being your travel insurance should also cover you for the following:

  • Positive COVID test preventing you from travelling
  • Local restrictions preventing you from travelling
CAN I COME ON THIS RETREAT BY MYSELF?

Yes! Travelling alone is a great way to meet new people.

For guests travelling solo you can choose a space in one of the Deluxe Twin shared rooms, or choose to take one of the other Deluxe Doubles for solo occupancy.

WILL I GET ANY ‘FREE' TIME?

Absolutely! We always schedule down time in our daily itinerary for you to chill by the pool, go to the spa, or nap in the sunshine. 

WHICH AIRPORT DO I FLY INTO?

Fly into Marrakech International Airport (RAK).

The transfer from the airport to Kasbah Bab Ourika is roughly 50 minutes.

WHAT LEVEL OF FITNESS DO I NEED TO BE AT? DO I NEED TO BE SUPER FIT TO COME?

We accommodate a variety of fitness levels, and there will be lots of down time for you to relax and recover from the workouts. We programme each workout to allow you to work to your own abilities & pace, and our epic trainers are always on hand to provide modifications to exercises if required. The Blitz is all about community and so we encourage you to get stuck in as much as possible, challenge yourself, and see what you’re capable of! 

It’s your choice as to whether you participate in each workout, but we’d always encourage you to get involved in as much as possible! Remember, it is a fitness retreat after all.

WHAT SORT OF WORKOUTS CAN I EXPECT ON THE RETREAT?

The coaches on your trip will programme as much variety as possible in the format, style and location of each of the workouts throughout the week. You can expect different training techniques such as functional strength movements involving sandbags and dumbbells, plyometric bodyweight movements and endurance training, boxing, team runs, HIIT circuits, and our legendary finishers! There will also be the option of a daily yoga and meditation session 

CAN I PAY BY INSTALMENTS?

Yes. To do this, first you need to confirm your place on the retreat by paying the appropriate deposit. After we've received the funds we'll be in touch to set up your instalments. As long as all payments are made by the Payment Due Date (30 days before the start date of the retreat), we allow guests to split the balance of the retreat as best fits their budget.
