The Independent Recommends Single Women Go Hiking In Morocco For International Women's Day

Just three months after two young Scandinavian women were savagely beheaded by ISIS terrorists while hiking in Morocco, the British paper The Independent has issued a travel guide for solo travelling women recommending they take an "off-map hiking adventure" to Morocco in honor of "International Women's Day."

International Women's Day is on March 8th.

The article shared on Tuesday, titled "International Women’s Day: 10 of the best female-only trips for solo travellers," listed "Hike in Morocco" as their first recommendation.
Intrepid Travel has launched new limited edition women’s expeditions, which are all about “breaking down barriers, fostering discussion and creating immersive local experiences for women that are ordinarily off limits on our regular group departures”.

Its Morocco Women's Expedition is an off-map hiking adventure starting in Marrakech and going via the Bougmez Valley and the foothills of Azourki, before travellers get the chance to visit a women’s rug-weaving co-op in Talsanant. An eight-day tour costs £675pp, including seven nights’ B&B accommodation, four lunches, five dinners, transfers and a range of activities, from a local folklore workshop to a Berber makeup workshop.
Good lookin' out.

[Correction: The Independent's Helen Coffey responded in an email saying they did not recommend a solo trip but instead "a group trip" that's "complete with a fully organised itinerary and accompanied by experienced guides." She said they do not make money off this (LinkSynergy) affiliate link to Intrepid Travel. While LinkSynergy is an affiliate marketing company the link currently gives me an error saying, "No merchant exists with this MID." I've amended the article and headline to reflect the change.]
