Morocco is a mix of breathtaking landscapes made of mountains, desert and sea, ancient cities with labyrinthic medina, colourful bazaar, old traditions, flavours and aromas of spices that inebriate the air. Our journey starts from Casablanca and follows the classic route to see the imperial cities, the stunning dunes of Erg Chebbi, and the incredible Todra valley with its narrow canyon with vertical walls dug by the river. On our way to the famous Marrakech, we stop in Ouarzazate with its beautiful ocher-coloured Kasbah and visit the charming Draa Valley and the well known Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou, the best preserved of the whole of Morocco. Our trip ends with the visit to vibrant coastal towns like Essaouira, Safi and el-Jadida with their charming white buildings and big defensive walls that remind the Portuguese Period.

When to go
All year round but the best seasons are spring and autumn to avoid the strong heat of the summer season. The first time we visited Morocco in October and the weather was perfect, the second time in December and the weather was perfect as well but a bit cold during the early morning and at night.
We never leave without insurance since it’s the most important thing when travelling. We got our comprehensive protection with Worldnomads.
