What To Expect
Immerse yourself in the exotic colours and cultures that define Morocco. From the imperial cities of Meknes and Rabat to the whitewashed town of Chefchaouen, the rich history and traditions of this ancient land await. Discover the medieval city of Fes, explore the spice markets of Marrakech and travel to the Roman ruins of Volubilis - this northbound tour lets you soak up the extravagant sights and revel in the hidden delights.
Get acquainted with the distinct architecture and European flavor of the most famed city in Morocco, Casablanca! With a bustling old medina, Art-Deco buildings, contemporary art galleries and one of Africa's biggest ports, Casablanca is a city of all ages. For those who arrive early, head to Hassan II Mosque - one of the largest mosques in the world - or take it easy with a glass of sweet mint tea in one of the many great cafes.
Travel from Casablanca to Rabat and see monuments spanning the history of Morocco, including the delightful Kasbah des Oudaias, on a walk through the city's old quarter. The great walls of Rabat enclose a largely modern city with a laidback atmosphere, but there's still plenty of historic sights to remind visitors of its colorful past.
Spend the night in the sacred hilltop town of Moulay Idriss. Once forbidden to non-Muslims, the picturesque medina offers an excellent insight into traditional Moroccan life. The sacred pilgrimage town of Moulay Idriss is a wonder to explore as the faithful gather to pay homage to the founding father of Islam in Morocco at the 8th-century mausoleum.
Accommodation: Guesthouse (1 night)
Dating from antiquity, Volubilis is now a site of wonderfully preserved Roman ruins near the town of Moulay Idriss. Discover remarkable mosaics on a tour of the Volubilis ruins then see the imposing gates and walls of Meknes.
Take a step back to the Middle Ages in the city of Fes, considered the cultural and religious centre of Morocco. Stately city walls, labyrinthine medinas and a wonderfully preserved Old City has made Fes one of Morocco's favorite destinations. For an evocative walk, head to the atmospheric Fes medina to wander through the maze-like alleyways.
Accommodation: Hotel (2 nights)
Along with a relaxed vibe and charming medina, the blue hues of Chefchaouen, set against the greenness of the Rif Mountains, startle even the weariest traveller. Nestled between two peaks in the Rif Mountains, charming Chefchaouen is the perfect place to relax. Spend time here admiring the blue-washed houses, shopping for unique handicrafts in the medina or simply sitting in a cafe, watching the world go by.
Travel to Morocco's northern coast town of Tangier. Combining the old-world sights and sounds of the kasbah with the contemporary charms of its recently redeveloped seaside promenade, the vibrant port of Tangier has plenty to offer. Perhaps indulge in fresh seafood before making the final journey to Marrakech aboard an overnight train.
Accommodation: Hotel (2 nights), Overnight sleeper train (1 nights)
The North Morocco Adventure finishes back amongst the sights, scents and sounds of Marrakech. Marrakech is a tantalizing feast for the senses.
