Itinerary

Day 1 Casablanca

Get acquainted with the distinct architecture and European flavour of the most famed city in Morocco, Casablanca. For those who arrive early, head to Hassan II Mosque – one of the largest mosques in the world – or take it easy with a glass of sweet mint tea in one of the many great cafes.

Day 2 Rabat/ Moulay Idriss

Travel from Casablanca to Rabat and see monuments spanning the history of Morocco, including the delightful Kasbah des Oudaias, on a walk through the city’s old quarter. Spend the night in the sacred hilltop town of Moulay Idriss. Once forbidden to non-Muslims, the picturesque medina offers an excellent insight into traditional Moroccan life.

Days 3-4 Volubilis/ Fes

Discover remarkable mosaics on a tour of the Volubilis ruins then see the imposing gates and walls of Meknes. Take a step back to the Middle Ages in the city of Fes, considered the cultural and religious centre of Morocco. For an evocative walk, head to the atmospheric Fes medina to wander through the maze-like alleyways.

Days 5-7 Chefchaouen/ Tangier

Nestled between two peaks in the RifMountains, charming Chefchaouen is the perfect place to relax. Spend time here admiring the blue-washed houses, shopping for unique handicrafts in the medina or simply sitting in a cafe, watching the world go by. Travel to Morocco’s northern coast town of Tangier and perhaps indulge in fresh seafood before making the final journey to Marrakech aboard an overnight train.

Days 8-9 Marrakech

The North Morocco Adventure finishes back amongst the sights, scents and sounds of Marrakech. Tantalise senses with a walk around the city’s main square and rub shoulders with crowds of visitors and locals alike.
