The tour begins in Tangier, Morocco’s capital and what has long been known as the ‘gateway to Africa’. You’ll explore the atmospheric streets, shady alleyways and heaving Medina, and get to know the local rhythms of life thanks to your guide.
Once you leave Tangier, your adventure really begins. Head to the Merzouga Desert, home to the highest sand dunes in the world and your location for an unforgettable desert camping stay and a true Berber experience, visiting the incredible cities of Fes and Chefchaouen on the way.
At these two cities, you’ll discover ancient tanneries, college, local eateries and quiet, blue-washed streets in the shadow of rugged mountains. Once you’ve watched the Saharan sunrise, explored the desert on camelback and slept under the stars, it’s on to the spectacular Dades Gorges.
Travelling through some of the most spectacular scenery in Morocco, you’ll pass through the Valley of Roses, past the ancient Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou, and discover countless sites and experiences that introduce you to a region all from the perspective of a local.
On to the mountain village of Taliouine, a rocky, alien landscape before making the journey to the addictive Marrakech. Enjoy a full day here, wandering the Medina that buzzes with energy and exploring backstreets to find incredible places to try magical Moroccan food.
Travel from Marrakech over the High Atlas mountains, on stunning mountain passes that wind their way through remote valleys and plunging gorges, before arriving in the oasis of calm that is Essaouira.
This gorgeous, blue-washed coastal town is a great place to take a breath, and relax as you wander the quiet streets, the creeping stairways, the artisanal markets and the harbour that’s awash with the aroma of grilling seafood.
Then you will follow the coastal road northwards, visiting stunning fortified cities, magnificent mosques, the fascinating city of Casablanca and endless beautiful beaches, before your journey comes to an end back in Tangier.
If it’s worth seeing in Morocco, you’ll experience it on this tour, and by the time you leave Morocco, you’ll have lived like a local, meeting the local people, eatin authentic Moroccan cuisine, and staying in classic riads and desert camps. You’ll feel as though you know the country intimately, and won’t be able to wait to come back.
You can enjoy beautiful weather any time of year on this incredible tour, which makes this Moroccan adventure the ideal winter sun experience, for those looking to escape the cold UK winter.
