Morocco offers a wonderful amalgam of rugged coastline, Saharan dunes, ancient cities, sundrenched mountain ranges and nomadic spice traders.
Begin your journey in the market town of Marrakech, a 1,000 year old city teeming with activity. A day walking in the High Atlas and exploring local villages provides a fantastic contrast to coastal Essaouira, with its seafront ramparts and famous tradewinds. Spend time wandering the fortified medina in this culturally diverse, character-filled small city. Travelling north to charming Rabat, you will visit Casablanca, a once industrial city enjoying a period of renaissance, and its incredible Hassan II mosque. Often referred to as Morocco’s cultural centre, Fes teems with life, colour and tangible history. Home of academics, artisans and entrepreneurs, Fes manages to embrace the modern demands of tourism, with its fabulous array of cafes, cooking schools and stores whilst retaining a firm grip on tradition. Founded in the 15th century when Jewish and Moorish people escaped the continuing battles on the Iberian peninsula, quaint and colourful Chefchaouen is tucked away in the Rif mountains. A food lovers delight, the city is famous for its orange juice, wood-fired bread and spicy, aromatic tagines.
Your tour ends in Tangier, overlooking the Strait of Gibralter and long considered Europe’s gateway to Africa. Once a neglected port city used only as a transit point, and equally loved and loathed by so many, Tangier is reinventing itself as investors and developers move in. There is still plenty of charm in the maze of streets in the city’s centre, as well as stunning views from nearby Cap Spartel.
