Places we recommend for a holiday in Morocco

The exotic country of Morocco is a land of sensory overload – with a coastline on the Mediterranean Sea, a border with the Western Sahara and the distinct culture of Islam pervading throughout, it casts a spell that’s difficult to resist. It may only be a short hop, skip and a jump away from Europe but culturally its worlds apart. Whatever you interest, Morocco is bound to impress.

Marrakech Highlight

Marrakech

One of the first sights you will see as you enter Marrakech, is the Koutoubia Mosque, with its 230 foot high minaret, dating back to the 12th century. Djemâa el-Fna, the central square, is best seen in the evening when it’s overflowing with food stalls, cooking stalls, dancers, acrobats, fortune tellers, snake charmers, musicians and henna artists. It is an assault on the senses, from aromatic smells, colourful sights and an abundance of sound. The souks have a variety of goods for and ...

Stretching 2,400kms through Morocco to Tunisia, the mountain range includes the Rock of Gibraltar. The trekking ranges from a stroll to a strenuous trek to the highest summit in North Africa, Jebel Toubkal. The Moroccan Grand Atlas includes the Middle Atlas, High Atlas and Anti-Atlas. Its easy to take a one day trek, so you don’t have to be super fit. Mountain villages of Berber people still exist today, living a simple life and it’s a way to experience a side of Morocco that many see. ...

Fes Highlight

Fes

The oldest and largest medieval city in the world, Fes is a bustling hive of activity. The medina is a must – a heady mix of aromas, sounds and sights from the tanneries, spice tubs, carpets, pottery and leather goods. There are still some 200,00 people that live in the Medina, which has an old world feel to it. To navigate, follow the tourist circuits or hire a guide, as it is very easy to get lost within the medina! There are 5 circuits, each with a different colour, each with a different as ...

Essaouira Highlight

Essaouira

Originally encircled by the old walls, the town of Essaouira has now extended beyond the walls, but the town is still small enough to explore on foot. The 18th century town is laid back and is a popular destination for windsurfing and kite surfing, due to the wave forming winds in summer and spring. The beach is in front of the Medina and there are plenty of cafés with terraces. Blue doors and window frames abound as do the artists shops and jewellery stalls. Islands are scattered around, in ...

Chefchaouen Highlight

Chefchaouen

High up in the Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen is a beautiful blue door and white-walled medina that was originally a Berber post. Only visited by 3 Westerners up until 920 when Spanish troops invaded, Chefchaouen was once considered a city that was impossible to be visited by a Christian. The main square is the heart of Chefchaouen, with the Kasbah (built back in the 18th century), central mosque and cafes with authentic Moroccan style menus. The market is a mix of traditional Moroccan and very ...

Todra Gorge Highlight

Todra Gorge

Todra Gorge is situated on the remote east side of the High Atlas Mountains in. The gorge has carved out cliff-sided canyons on the final 40 km through the mountains. The final 600 m of the Todra gorge are the most spectacular as the canyon narrows to a flat stony track as little as 10m wide in places with sheer and smooth rock walls up to 160 m high on each side. The rock face changes colour during the day, ranging from a rosy red to a dull tan. It is easy to hike in the gorge and there are ...

Camel trekking | Sahara | Morocco

Erg Chebbi

The dunes of Erg Chebbi is a strikingly strange natural formation. On the top of the flattest area you could imagine, suddenly a long mountain of sand rises. This mountain is surrounded by flat and desolate nature on all sides, and you could end up wondering if it really is real. Locals have long talked of the myths and legends of these beautiful dunes. One legend tells us that the dunes of Erg Chebbi were created by God as a punishment to the locals of nearby Merzouga after they refused to a ...

5

The 3 of us which includes our 16 year old son thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our holiday. The structure of the tour and all the visits and additional places we visited en route were fascinating.

Our visit coincided with Ramadan which gave us more of an insight into a different culture.

We were very happy with all the hotels we stayed in, each had a different character.

And we all have great admiration for our wonderful tour guide Azis who was very knowledgeable and planned an itinerary which gave us a much closer view of the Moroccan culture.

And last but not least we loved our driver Mustafa who drove and navigated effortlessly and courteously through the cities and landscape.”

More to the capital

Lying on the Atlantic Coast, the Moroccan capital of Rabat is an imperial city with elegant tree-lined boulevards and an unhurried charm, but there is so much more to it than that. The abandoned necropolis of Chellah is one of Rabat’s most evocative sights with outstanding ruins, while the Kasbah des Oudaias commands striking views from its cliff-top perch. Other notable attractions include the enormous minaret of the Hassan tower and the remarkable frescoes of St Agatha’s Crypt.

Surfing holidays | Morocco

If you fancy tackling the waves yourself consider heading here for a few days of sun, sand and surf. Spend the days learning how to handle a surf board and the evenings relaxing in a hammock with a cool beer in hand.

Spices
Cook local cuisine

Prepare food in Fes

Whether an adventurous gourmand or amateur chef, Fes is the perfect place to put on that apron and try your hand at preparing traditional Moroccan cuisine. Discover the aromas and spices of local gastronomy, learn about where ingredients are sourced, prepare a meal with the help of an expert chef and then sample the fruits of your labour. The trick will be recreating the dishes back home!

Pamper yourself

Traditional Hammam

If you are searching for a truly authentic Moroccan experience then you cannot go wrong with a traditional hammam. Playing a significant role in local culture, most Moroccans will frequent a hammam at least once a week. Whether you choose a public or private hammam, prepare to be sloshed with water, scrubbed down with olive soap and masked in mineral-rich clay. Opt for an argan oil massage to top it all off.

Summit of Mount Toubkal | Morocco
Rise to the challenge

Mt Toubkal

Trek to the summit of Mt Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa, across rugged mountain terrain, through earthen Berber village clinging tenaciously to valley sides, taking in stunning panoramic vistas along the way.

Unique accommodation

Where you spend the night should be an experience in itself and in Morocco you cannot go amiss with a traditional Moroccan riad. Unlike modern hotels, riads do not offer a wide range of facilities but they make up for this with warm hospitality, an abundance of old world charm and sumptuous traditional decor. To get off the beaten track, consider staying in an eco lodge or converted Kasbah in the heart of the Atlas Mountains, or spend the night in a desert camp amongst the vast rolling dunes of the Sahara.
