What's included in this trip
South Morocco Discovery SummaryAdd to Shortlist
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 and the perfume of its gardens.
Perched on a rocky outcrop, the remote village of Aroumd offers stunning views across the High Atlas Mountains and a unique opportunity to experience traditional Berber culture.
Sitting on a hilltop and looking unchanged since the 11th century, Ait Benhaddou is one of Morocco's most treasured, alluring and iconic sites.
Known as the 'doors of the desert', Zagora is a palmerie town with great pottery and ceramic workshops on the way into the desert.
Set in a vast landscape of shifting sands and undulating shapes, the massive Erg Chigaga dunes are one of the Sahara's most iconic sights.
With an energetic, bustling city centre, Taroudannt is a great opportunity to see an untouched traditional Berber lifestyle and pick up a bargain in one of the many souqs.
A seaside town with undeniable charm, Essaouira's stone ramparts play host to whitewashed houses with bright blue shutters, art galleries and a picturesque harbour.
Marrakech is home to a seemingly endless mosaic of souqs. Each is devoted to a separate trade: pottery, woodwork, copper, leather, carpets and spices.
