The desert kingdom of Morocco offers an eclectic mix of Roman ruins, bustling souks, Imperial cities, rugged mountains, deep gorges and spicy aromas. Explore the Sahara on the back of a camel and camp out under a blanket of stars, trek or ski in the beautiful Atlas Mountains or learn to surf in laid back Taghazoute. Relax by the coast in charming Essaouira, discover ancient kasbahs, soak up the heady atmosphere in Marrakech’s Djemaa el Fna – the world’s most exuberant market place, wander through the blue & white medina of Chefchaouen or simply relax by the sea.
Resident expert and professional photographer Doug McKinlay will be leading our photography tour of Morocco later this year. Our gallery below features incredible photos and tales from Doug’s recent adventures in Morocco.
