About Morocco

Best of Morocco Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Casablanca

Welcome to Morocco. Discover the Art Deco influences of this metropolis. Head out on personal explorations through Casablanca's heart and admire some of its architectural gems, including the beautiful Hassan II Mosque and the imposing Cathédrale du Sacré Coeur.

Day 2 Rabat/Meknes

Stroll through Rabat's serene kasbah before journeying to Meknes, the former capital of Morocco and the site of Sultan Moulay Ismail's palace.

Days 3-4 Volubilis/Fes

Travel back to the days of the Roman Empire on a guided tour of the ruins of Volubilis. In medieval Fes, wander the narrow alleyways of the medina as the call to prayer floats over Fes el-Bali at dusk.

Day 5 Midelt

Journey through Morocco's cedar forests in the Middle Atlas Mountains to the peaceful, rural village of Midelt. Stop by a handicraft workshop run by Franciscan nuns - a great place to pick up a beautifully crafted souvenir.

Day 6 Sahara Camp

After a camel ride into the Sahara desert, attempt a climb of the towering dunes. Later, fall asleep in a desert camp under a blanket of stars.

Days 7-8 Todra Gorge

Wake early and watch a golden sunrise over the desert before heading to the impressive palmeries of Todra Gorge. Feel like burning some energy? Why not go for a hike or try rock-climbing.

Day 9 Ait Benhaddou

Pass through Morocco's film capital, Ouarzazate, on the way to the ancient fortified city of Ait Benhaddou. Explore the streets of this clay kasbah at a relaxed pace, then finish off the day with a meal of delicious couscous.

Day 10 Aroumd

Farewell the Sahara and head to the hills. Perched on a rocky outcrop, remote Aroumd offers stunning views across Morocco. This is the perfect base for exploring the High Atlas Mountains and a chance to experience traditional Berber culture up close.

Days 11-12 Essaouira

With its Norfolk Island pines and colourful fishing boats, relaxed Essaouira is a gem. Get acquainted with the town's fascinating history on a guided walking tour and then enjoy free time to wander along the beach, visit art galleries or feast on freshly caught seafood.

Days 13-15 Marrakech

Explore the tantalising spice market in Marrakech and dine al fresco at a food stall in Djemaa el-Fna, or escape the buzz of the city in the shaded rooms of the Palais de la Bahia, a superb example of ornate Muslim architecture.
