Moroccan holiday will take you from the Atlantic Ocean to the Sahara Desert, from ancient city to Andalusian village, through varied landscapes, a rich history, and a high level of diversity.

The greatest pleasure of a holiday to Morocco holiday is staying in a charming riad in Marrakech or Fes, from which you can explore the city’s massive maze of souks and alleys. Enter the labyrinthine streets of the medinas, Morocco’s historic heart, the aroma of spices and freshly baked bread fill the air. It’s surreal to walk through the preserved medieval city of Old Fes. In Casablanca, where art deco architecture and the café-lined Corniche Walk provide an exciting contrast to the rest of the country, old and new coexist in Rabat.

In windy and colourful Essaouira, walk along the ramparts of the walled city. Explore the cobblestoned alleys of Chefchaouen, a charming hilltop Andalusian-style village where houses are painted blue, and women still wear the traditional red-and-white-striped Fouta and straw hats topped with pom-poms.

Take a break and relax on the golden sands of Agadir’s crescent bay. Taroudant is a short distance from Agadir and is an excellent stop, especially if you want to learn more about Berber culture. Savour fresh oysters from a local farm in the coastal town of Oualidia, which sits on a picturesque coastal tidal lagoon teeming with birds. Bathing in a hammam, as well as drinking mint tea, is central to Moroccan culture. Sign up for a traditional hammam experience and get scrubbed clean in a building with fantastic Moorish architecture to live like a local.

Your holiday takes on new meaning when you ride a camel through the Agafay Desert outside of Marrakech, at the hills of the Atlas Mountains. When you camp overnight with Bedouins on the undulating red-tinged dunes of the Sahara near Merzouga, look up in stunned silence at the millions of stars crowding the night sky.
