Morocco Experience Overview
- 2014-01-01 - 2014-05-31
Experience an adventure tour of Morocco that explores the heart of the country from Casablanca to Marrakech, visiting Volubilis, Chefchaouen, Fes, the Sahara, Todra Gorge and Ait Benhaddou. The colour and commotion of Morocco will dazzle travellers looking to experience a way of life suspended in time. Travel through the moody desert landscape past kasbahs and villages, picnic in tranquil mountain gorges and investigate the labyrinth of souqs in the cities and haggle with traders. Learn the secrets to the perfect couscous and discover ruins of a city built by a sultan looking to create his own version of Versailles. Stay in a hotel made of Saharan sand and find tranquillity in a traditional riad amid the frenzy of the medina. The sights, sounds and smells of the cities and the aromatic flavours of the cuisine will infuse your memories of Morocco for years to come.
What's included in this trip
Morocco Experience SummaryAdd to Shortlist
With a bustling old medina, Art-Deco buildings, contemporary art galleries and one of Africa's biggest ports, Casablanca is a city of all ages.
A relaxed city with an array of historical sites on its doorstep, Meknes has a fascinating Old Town and wonderful labyrinthine streets.
Dating from antiquity, Volubilis is now a site of wonderfully preserved Roman ruins near the town of Moulay Idriss.
Being in Fes is like stepping back in time. Stately city walls, labyrinthine medinas and a wonderfully preserved Old City has made Fes one of Morocco's favourite destinations.
With a history of mining and agriculture, Midelt is a picturesque town nestled between the High and Middle Atlas mountains with many lovely, sand-coloured buildings.
With the backdrop of the orange-coloured Erg Chebbi sand dunes, the small Saharan village of Merzouga feels like the modern world has left it behind, charmingly so.
Dades Gorge is a narrow valley with natural beauty and dramatic mountain vistas, as well as a number of Berber kasbahs that are truly breathtaking.
Sitting on a hilltop and looking unchanged since the 11th century, Ait Benhaddou is one of Morocco's most treasured, alluring and iconic sites.
Marrakech is a feast for the senses. Be enticed by the alluring scents and brilliant colours of the spice markets, the sounds of the musicians, the rich folds of carpets, delectable foods, acrobats and perfumed gardens.
