Description of Moroccan adventure

From the colourful, chaotic Marrakech medinas to the moody Sahara desert landscape, Morocco is a land filled with rich culture and wonderful scenery. On this 10-day trip you’ll stay in traditional hotels and riads and explore villages off the beaten track, spending one night sleeping under the stars in the desert, spending an evening by the campfire listening to Bedouin tales, and a night in a family-run mountain home in the High Atlas, enjoying Berber hospitality and food.

Learn the secret to the perfect Moroccan couscous, unwind in a traditional hamam, visit the grand kasbah at Ait Benhaddou, travel through the Sahara on a camel and relax on Essaouira beach. You will also trek into the High Atlas Mountains on a guided hike and walk through scenic Berber villages, to discover the culture and tradition of an indigenous population that has stood the test of time.

You’ll travel by 4x4, private vehicle, public bus and taxi, and the trip starts and ends in vibrant Marrakesh. Here, visit Koutoubia Mosque, Palais Bahia and the city’s largest outdoor food market, Djemaa El-Fna. When night falls on this square it transforms into a hive of activity. Snake-charmers, henna-painters, performers and storytellers share the square with a street food bazaar, packed with stalls loaded with Moroccan delicacies. It’s a great place to round off your Moroccan adventure, tasting local food and rubbing shoulders with the locals.
