Morocco

A heady mix of colour and culture at the gateway to Africa, Morocco is a country of contrast. From the vast arid deserts and undulating mountain ranges to the ancient cities and traditional towns that house hospitable locals.

Mesmerising landscapes hold picture-postcard appeal, most notably the famous Atlas Mountains that offer breath-taking panoramas, and the Sahara Desert, and the sandy shores along the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Famous cities include Marrakech, Tangiers, and Casablanca, and many other memorable ports of call that will lead you on a journey brimming with interesting history, art, architecture, and authentic cuisine. Wander through alleyways leading to bustling souks, where colourful spices and shimmering silks adorn the stalls, indulge in a traditional Hammam with rejuvenating salt scrubs and steam baths, or head out on active adventures, ascending the mountains on hiking trails. Boutique riads provide lavish places to stay, while panoramic terraces and grand squares allow visitors to soak up the atmosphere, perhaps while polishing off a richly flavoured tagine.
