From the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas to the never-ending beaches of the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts, from lush green oases to vast deserts in the Great South and from Imperial cities to fortified Berber villages, Morocco has more than its fair share of appeals!
The choice is endless from meandering around the alleys of the country's most beautiful medinas in Fes, Rabat and Marrakech; swimming and sunbathing along the sun-kissed bay of Agadir or wind-surfing down the exhilarating, windswept coast of Essaouira; hiking excursions in the fantastic Drâa Valley, whose thousand Kasbahs blend into the earth, or in the Dades Valley, famous for its orange gorges.
You will need a 4WD to reach the most grandiose sites beyond the doorstep of the desert at Ouarzazate. However, you will be rewarded with, among others, the vision of the vertiginous pink sand dunes of erg Chebbi.
For an authentic taste of Morocco, take a break in a riad and breathe in floral-scented Mediterranean essences or dive headfirst into a souk and take the time to properly enjoy the tea and bartering rituals, while picking up a few souvenirs to take back to family and friends along the way!
