Morocco Travel Highlights
WHAT NOT TO MISS IN MOROCCO:
1: The Djemaa el Fna of Marrakech
Stalls spill out everywhere, acrobats and jugglers rub shoulders with storytellers, the smoke of the food stalls competes in the air overhead and spectators fight for space to take it all in. The central square of Djemaa el Fna in Marrakech is the heart and soul of any adventure holiday in Morocco.
2: Sleeping in a nomadic Berber Camp
Adventure holidays are all about this; a bumpy camel ride into a desert, refreshing yourself at the oasis, dining in a Nomadic camp, watching the dunes change colour as the sun sets and the stars begin to illuminate the unpolluted night skies.
3: Sunrise in the Sahara
Awaking in the dark and heading out into the chilly night for a climb up the sand dunes is worth the effort to see the spectacular sun rise over the golden sand of the Sahara.
4: The Blue City
Chefchaouen, also known as Chaouen or Xaouen, is one of the most special places that I'vshould be visited. Located in the middle of the Rif Mountains, this town is well known worldwide thanks to the bright blue colour used to decorate its houses and streets.
5: Climbing the Atlas Mountains
If you love the mountains, then the extraordinary Atlas Mountains are an essential part of any adventure holiday in Morocco. Choose between quiet trails through fields of flowers and Berber villages or get your high altitude kicks mountain biking, peak bagging or ascending Mt Toubkal.
6: Getting Lost in the Medina of Fez
Look no further than the Medina of Fez if you want to plunge yourself into sensory overload. The ancient walls contain a labyrinth of alleyways and tiny craft shops overrun with hundreds of people, the smell of African spices, the distant whiff of the famous tanneries and a surprise around every corner.
7: Indulging in Atlantic Relaxation
Essaouira on the Atlantic Coast is a perfectly proportioned Portuguese fishing port complete with shuttered cottages, artisan’s workshops, seafood delicacies and whitewashed beauty. The perfect place to wind down on any activity holiday in Morocco.
