Traverse the kingdom of Morocco, from the bustling souks of Marrakesh, across the Atlas Mountains to the sands of the Sahara and the Mediterranean port of Tangier.  

At a Glance

  • Visit the palaces of Marrakesh and stroll through the city’s bustling Jemaa el-Fnaa where you can bargain for slippers, carpets, olives and dried apricots  
  • Breathe the warm, dry air of the Sahara Desert and visit the ‘Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs’, where abandoned Berber citadels recede into the desert sands  
  • Visit a 14th century madrasa in Fez, the Mediaeval capital of the Sultanate of Morocco 
  • Explore Tétouan’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed medina and its artisan bronzeworkers, and the cosmopolitan port city of Tangier  
  • Visit the city Rabat, once the den of the Barbary corsairs, now the thriving capital of modern Morocco 

Follow in the footsteps of Mediaeval camel caravans as you make your way to the Grand Market of Marrakesh, where snake charmers, peddlers and magicians vie to entertain the passers-by. Cross the High Atlas Mountains and travel to the desert towns of Ouarzazate and Erfoud, before turning north again to Fez, whose madrasas and ancient university have seen it dubbed ‘the Athens of Africa’. 

Visit the artisan workshops of Tétouan and uncover the unconventional literary heritage of Tangier, the haunt of Tennessee Williams and William S. Borroughs, before venturing down the Atlantic coast to the country’s capital, Rabat, home to the best of modern Moroccan art and architecture.
