Morocco Trips

Travel to Morocco for a holiday that appeals to all your senses, from vibrant bazaars to aromatic tagines and stirring natural beauty

Why Morocco?

Morocco offers a rich melting pot of cultures, thanks to its location on Africa’s most northern frontier.

With less than an hour between Tarifa and Tangier, Morocco is almost brushing the tip of Europe, marking the age-old passage into Africa. Here, you’ll find Arab and European influences coexisting alongside one another, all unfolding on native Berber land. The range of landscapes in Morocco is breathtaking: the Atlas Mountains, the highest in North Africa; the vast Sahara Desert; the rugged Atlantic coastline, serving some of the best surf on the continent.

Then, there are Morocco’s cities. Marrakech, with its labyrinthine medina and traditional textiles. Chefchaouen, with its blue-washed streets and alleys winding into the hills. Casablanca, elegant and sea-washed. And many more, brimming with history and character.

With a country as rich, diverse and enchanting as Morocco, it’s no wonder it consistently ranks as one of our most popular destinations. You’ll quickly fall in love, and be back for more.

Top places to visit in Morocco

Marrakech

Marrakech’s medina is a walled city, built during the Berber Empire. Meander through bustling souks sampling local cuisine, tour ancient ruins and marvel at the architectural beauty of mosques, palaces and markets.

Essaouira

Take to the beach in Essaouira, a beautiful, breezy port city on Morocco’s Atlantic coast. Nicknamed the ‘Wind City of Africa’, it’s particularly popular with windsurfers. Escape the coastal wind in the spice-filled alleys of the winding medina.

Taghazout

This small fishing village north of Agadir is home to some of the best waves in Africa. If you prefer calmer waters, pop over to Paradise Valley on the Tamraght River to take in a palm-lined gorge complete with pools and waterfalls.

Casablanca

Casablanca is Morocco’s largest city, a commercial hub boasting a blend of Moorish, art deco and French colonial influences. Admire the graceful architecture with a fresh Atlantic breeze to keep you cool.
