Whether you are looking for a cultural experience or an active adventure holiday, a relaxing beach holiday or a city break with a difference, Morocco certainly has more than enough to satisfy the discerning traveller.
You will discover a rich heritage and a wealth of antiquities, with an interesting mix of Berber, Arabic and a finishing touch from Spain and Africa. Geographically you have everything here from the vast wilderness of the Sahara Desert to the rugged peaks of the Atlas Mountains and the blustery Atlantic coastline with mile upon mile of golden sands.
Along the way there are pretty Berber villages and lush green valleys scattered with traditional Kasbahs to discover. A wonderful climate means there is pretty much guaranteed year round sunshine to be enjoyed.
There is always a sense of magical mystery about travelling in Morocco; you may feel like you have travelled back in time as you discover a world sometimes refreshingly little changed by modern influence. This is a country which elegantly savours its past, combining it with a touch of modern comfort where needed but without forsaking its roots.
Marrakech offers a mystical and fascinating entry gate to Morocco. With a backdrop of snow capped mountains, you will discover bustling souks, a wealth of ancient attractions and of course the fabled medieval square of Djemaa el Fna with its acrobats, snake-charmers and musicians, just like a scene from the treasured Arabian Nights stories. Many travellers return again and again with each visit uncovering a little more of its intoxicating secrets.
Away from the frenetic cities, Morocco has so much more to discover. From trekking in the Atlas Mountains or exploring the Sahara Desert by 4×4 and camping out under clear starry skies, there are many adventures to be had.
If you have already visited Marrakech and are looking for somewhere new to discover in Morocco, we recommend a trip to the less visited North. Here you’ll discover hidden mountain villages trapped in time, together with Imperial cities like Fez and well preserved ancient sites such as Volubilis dating back to Roman times.
