About this trip

Exotic, ancient, mystical, colourful, challenging - Morocco is an intoxicating country that has long attracted writers, poets, artists and dreamers; convincing countless visitors to stay for good. Our fully escorted tour travels from Casablanca to Imlil, Marrakech, Ourazazate, Merzouga, IIfrane and Fes to enjoy a fascinating introduction to the souqs, medina's and riads, take a camel ride to view sunrise over the Sahara and experience the contrasting landscapes of this fascinating land. 


A trek in the Atlas Mountains follows trails through traditional Berber villages and to alpine pastures. We learn to respect the simplicity of life in these mountain villages and are awed by spectacular scenery. An ascent of Jebal Toubkal (4167m), the highest mountain in Morocco, is something to aim for on our trek. Not to be under-estimated, reaching the summit is a great achievement and a fitting highlight to round out this adventure. We also take a fascinating deviation to Chefchaouen, a gorgeous mountain city in northeastern Morocco with its distinctive blue-washed homes and a Mediterranean theme.
