"Discover the beauty of Morocco"

Around Morocco from Agadir

Most important cities and the magnificent nature of Morocco...

Discover some of the imperial cities, the magnificent nature and the most exciting places of South Morocco.


Starting from Agadir we drive through the unforgettable landscapes of the Eastern High Atlas Mountains and visit the famous Paradise Valley and Imouzzer, the most popular sights of the Agadir region before we reach Marrakech – home city of the famous Djemaa el-Fna, the square of vibrant atmosphere and colourful open-air shows in the evening.

As we continue our tour we discover the beautiful nature and some unforgettable sights of South Morocco. We cross the High Atlas via the famous Tizi n’Tichka road before we reach Ait Benhaddou, the world heritage site where famous Hollywood movies were shot. We spend a night in Dades Valley in a lovely small hotel with amazing view on the valley and we discover the awe-inspiring Todra Gorge with its thousand-foot-high vertical walls.

As we reach Merzouga we can either ride a camel or walk to reach our desert camp and spend a night among the highest sand dunes.

After leaving the desert we discover some of the imperial cities of North Morocco (Meknes and Fes) before we reach Casablanca, home of the unforgettable Mosque of Hassan II, the third biggest mosque in the world.

After leaving the White city we follow the coastal road to Essaouira, the ‘Jewel of the Atlantic’ where we will have enough time to explore this charming city before we leave for Agadir.

(Note: This trip starts in Agadir, the most popular beach town in Morocco, but you can also join the group in Marrakech if you wish.)

Day 1 (Feb 4)

Agadir – Paradise Valley – Imouzzer Ida Ou Tanane – Marrakech

We start from Agadir after breakfast and we drive through the amazing landscapes of the Atlas Mountains towards Paradise Valley which very popular among nature lovers and fans of spectacular landscapes. Once we are there we can make a short (15-30 minutes) walk along “the honey road” that leads to a nearby source. Here the landscape is always green, the vegetation is amazingly rich with argan trees, baobab trees, olives, almond trees, cactuses and thujas but we can find wild rosebay, thyme and lavender as well.

Later on drive towards Imouzzer Ida Ou Tanane reaching upto 1650 meter high to admire the waterfalls that are also called “the veil of the bride”. The place is the most amazing during rainy season.
From Imouzzer we head to the “pink city” of Marrakech which is famous for its lively bazaars, palaces and mosques, but you can also find some nice gifts for our loved ones here.

In the evening we can visit the heart of the city (the Djemaa el-Fna) and have a dinner in one of its food stalls. The square - with its snake charmers, water-sellers and acrobats - is a place of night-time entertainment for both tourists and local people.

In the morning in order to soak up the atmosphere of this amazing city, we have a guided tour to sample some of the popular sights of Marrakech including the Saadian tombs, the Bahia Palace and the Koutoubia Mosque (from outside).

The afternoon is free to explore some other sites of Marrakech by yourself. We advise you to visit the Badia Palace or the museum Dar Si Said or spend some time in the labyrinthine souqs (markets) looking for souvenirs. You can also take a half-hour Calèche ride (a green horse-drawn carriage) to the Majorelle Garden. This peaceful garden decorated all over in blue was built by Jacques Majorelle, a French painter who fell in love with Morocco and later was bought by Yves Saint-Laurent. As an optional program, you can finish the day by relaxing in a hammam, a traditional Moroccan steam bath (e.g. in our riad).
