You don’t have to sacrifice your comfort for a great adventure! On this eight-day discovery of Morocco, you’ll explore sacred sites like the Hassan II Mosque, Moulay Idriss and the Roman ruins of Volubilis. Explore the cultural heart of Morocco in Fes, then head into the Sahara for a camel ride through the sand dunes during sunset, before spending the night camping under the stars. Hike through the Todra Valley and see how the locals farm their produce, stopping for some epic views in the Atlas Mountains. Explore the silver-screen favourite of Ait Benhaddou and try the most delicious mint tea in the world at Tawesna teahouse. Top it all off with a vibrant day in Marrakech, where you’ll see the famed Djemaa el-Fna square and feast on Moroccan favourites like seared meats, fresh salads and chickpea soup.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Travel by camel across the dramatic red dunes of the Sahara and spend the night camping under North African stars.
  • Spend some time in one of Morocco’s most picturesque towns, like the 11th-century kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, and participate in a painting class with a local artist.
  • Rub shoulders with the locals in Todra Valley, Volubilis and Fes and gain a deeper understanding of sacred sites and the history and culture of Morocco with local and passionate guides.
  • Have lunch at the Amal Association in Marrakech – a non-profit organisation empowering local women through employment on their journey towards financial independence.
  • Prepare for the best mint tea of your life on a visit to the Tawesna teahouse. This experience is more than just a cuppa – it’s about discovering a culture, sharing a true moment and contributing to the economic inclusion of women.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip includes time spent travelling in a private vehicle with your group. Extra space can be tight, and conditions may feel a little cramped. It's all part of the adventure and a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. There are a few long days of travel, as you'll be covering a lot of ground. You will, however, make stops at interesting locations to break up the longer drives. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.
  • As a desert country, Morocco can have extreme weather. Please consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season. Refer to the Climate and Seasonal Information section of the Essential Trip Information for more details.
  • Morocco has a tipping culture and travellers are expected to tip small amounts for most services. Your trip leader and the Money Matters section of the Essential Trip Information can assist you with this.
  • Although you shouldn’t expect any aggressive selling techniques in Morocco, it’s common to be approached by shop owners and street vendors offering their goods.
  • We've sourced our accommodation very carefully and picked the best possible hotels in line with the Intrepid style of travel, but please note that service and accommodation in Morocco may differ from standards at home.
  • Ramadan is an annual month-long festival, during which travel can be a rewarding cultural experience, however some regular services may not be available during the day, such as restaurants or cafes, and occasionally travel can be disrupted by events. Your leader will adjust the itinerary accordingly, but please consider this when selecting your travel dates. You’ll find dates and further information in the ‘Climate and seasonal information’ section of the Essential Trip Information.

Wow! What an amazing experience we had. I traveled with my mom on a 12 person tour to Morocco and we had the best time. We learned so much, met an amazing group of people who love to travel, and our tour guide was amazing. Said was so knowledgeable and kind and his enthusiasm about his country made the entire trip exciting and memorable. I can’t recommend this tour enough! We stayed 2 extra days in Marrekes, and we enjoyed that as well to end the trip.
