Morocco Explorer

Journey to Morocco's imperial cities bursting with rich cultural traditions. Walk through the colourful markets and intricate laneways of the medieval medina in Fes before travelling across the foothills of the Middle Atlas. On the other side, the distinctive architecture of kasbahs (fortresses) captivates our attention almost as much as the deep orange colours of the dunes on the edge of the Sahara. In Marrakesh, one of the most important artistic centres in the Islamic world, there is time to bargain in the souqs showcasing a wide variety of handicrafts and food. Continuing to the Portuguese port city of Essaouira, explore the narrow lanes and discover tranquil squares and cafes. Here whitewashed houses adorned with painted blue doors could be anywhere in the southern Mediterranean. This trip is a true journey of contrasts and discovery.
