About Your Trip

Ride camels through the Sahara, explore the Old Kasbah of Tangier and stargaze with an expert astrologer on this 13-day Moroccan adventure. You’ll dive deep into the culture with local-led tours explaining the architecture of Casablanca and Moroccan geometry in Fez. Rather than following the usual tourist trail, you’ll stop by lesser-known gems, such as the blue city of Chefchaouen and the Dades Gorge deep in the Atlas Mountains. Foodies will lap up the local dishes, from traditional Berber-style meals to fusion tapas at a rooftop venue with sweeping views of Marrakech. You’ll come away having enjoyed a truly authentic experience.

Accommodation

Aparthotel Adagio Casablanca City Center, CasablancaThe highlight of this bright, contemporary hotel in central Casablanca is the rooftop bar. Kickstart your trip with nouveau Moroccan cuisine overlooking the city, then take a dip in the palm-fringed open-air pool.
Marina Bay, TangierWatch luxury yachts bob about on the Atlantic from your room at this waterfront hotel in Tangier. Expect an abundant breakfast buffet as well as an outdoor pool, primed for cooling off during the midday heat.
L’Ermitage d'Akchour, ChefchaouenEscape into the wilderness with a stay at one of these cosy log cabins, deep in the Rif Mountains near Chefchaouen. There are no televisions in the room; the idea is to fully immerse yourself in nature here. The Akchour waterfall is less than a minute’s walk away.
Riad Dar Bensouda, FezMajestic carved doors and Moroccan tiling dot this 16th-century riad, a traditional dwelling in the heart of Fez. After a massage at the opulent spa, head upstairs and take in the 360-degree view from the rooftop terrace.
Kam Kam Dunes, MerzougaSleeping in the endless orange dunes in Erg Chebbi is the highlight of a stay at Kam Kam Dunes. Despite being fully off-grid, the luxurious tents at this Berber desert camp are equipped with private bathrooms and showers with hot water.
Auberge Chez Pierre, Boumalne DadesTerracotta walls blend in with the ochre landscape at the traditional Auberge Chez Pierre, in the Dades Gorge valley of the High Atlas. Tuck into European-Moroccan fare at the restaurant before finishing your day with a nightcap in the onsite bar.
2Ciels, Marrakech2Ciels flawlessly combines earthy aesthetics with an elegant stay, in the Gueliz district of Marrakech. A rooftop restaurant, illuminated pool and candlelit hammams are a few of the luxe perks.
