"Discover the beauty of Morocco"

From North to South

Sample the best sights of Morocco: imperial cities, incredible nature, secret destinations for history and culture, camel riding among the sand dunes and many more. Almost all of the best sights of Morocco in one tour… 

Discover the imperial cities and most exotic places of Morocco, its magnificent nature and secret destinations for history and culture.


This trip starts in Casablanca, home of the unforgettable Mosque of Hassan II, the third biggest mosque in the world.

After visiting the most popular sights of Rabat, the capital we spend the next few days by exploring North of Morocco: visit Asilah, a charming small town, the popular coastal city of Tangier with its surroundings, Tétouan with its Andalusian influenced architecture, the amazing town of Chefchaouen, the Imperial Cities of North Morocco (Meknes and Fes) and the roman ruins in Volubilis. All are fascinating in their own right, and also offer an interesting insight into the historical and religious background of the country while sampling its modern life as well.

In this tour we also discover the beautiful nature of Morocco: the Sahara and the Atlas Mountains are ‘musts’ to see once you are here, but the Rif mountains also offer fascinating views and panoramas. In the Sahara we will visit Merzouga where you will have the chance to ride a camel or walk over the sand dunes. Both are essential part of a genuine Saharan experience! In the Atlas Mountains we will discover the awe-inspiring Todra Gorge with its thousand-foot-high vertical walls and Ait Benhaddou, the world heritage site where famous Hollywood movies were shot. Then we cross the High Atlas via the famous Tizi n’Tichka road which leads to Toubkal, the highest peak (4167m) in North Africa.

We finish our trip in Marrakech, home city of the famous Djemaa el-Fna, the square of vibrant atmosphere and colourful open-air shows.
