Day 1: Marrakech

Marvel in the spectacle of Marrakech, mingle with the performers and fortune-tellers at Djemaa el-Fna, or sample Moroccan fares alfresco at the night stalls. Marrakech is a feast for the senses. Be enticed by the alluring scents and brilliant colors of the spice markets, the sounds of the musicians and the perfume of its gardens. Relax while sipping mint tea with locals and pick up last-minute supplies for the South Morocco adventure.

Accommodation: Hotel (1 night)

Day 2: Aroumd

Perched on a rocky outcrop, the remote village of Aroumd offers stunning views across the High Atlas Mountains and a unique opportunity to experience traditional Berber culture. Stay in a mountain gite with incredible views while exploring the High Atlas Mountains. Hike to the burial place of a medieval saint.

Accommodation: Gite (1 night)

Day 3: Ait Benhaddou

Sitting on a hilltop and looking unchanged since the 11th century, Ait Benhaddou is one of Morocco's most treasured, alluring and iconic sites. Explore the grand Ait Benhaddou kasbah, Morocco's internationally acclaimed film set, as featured in Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator.

Accommodation: Guesthouse (1 night)

Day 4: Zagora

Embark on a journey towards the mighty Sahara Desert, through the lush Draa Valley and on to Zagora - a small oasis town on the Sahara fringe that is perfect for an overnight stop. Known as the 'doors of the desert', Zagora is a palmerie town with great pottery and ceramic workshops.

Accommodation: Hotel (1 night)

Day 5: Sahara Camp

Set in a vast landscape of shifting sands and undulating shapes, the massive Erg Chigaga dunes are one of the Sahara's most iconic sights. Travel along rugged mountain ranges, through seas of sand and past the occasional desert oasis of date palms. Investigate an ancient library filled with manuscripts and discover the green-glazed pottery of Tamegroute. Enjoy a camel expedition across the Sahara at dusk and spend the night under the stars.

Accommodation: Camp site (1 night)

Day 6: Taroudannt

Climb aboard a 4x4 for an epic trip out to the Erg Chigaga sand dunes. Look out for the incredible sight of goats climbing argan trees on the way to the bustling market town of Taroudannt. With an energetic, bustling city center, Taroudannt is a great opportunity to see an untouched traditional Berber lifestyle. You can also take to the souqs and haggle with local traders for silver jewellery or colorful Moroccan ceramics and mosaics.

Accommodation: Riad (1 night)

Days 7-8: Essaouira

A seaside town with undeniable charm, Essaouira's stone ramparts play host to whitewashed houses with bright blue shutters, art galleries and a picturesque harbor. Essaouira's old medina is a fascinating place to explore with a local guide, or perhaps take the opportunity to relax by the beach or browse the bubbly markets.

Accommodation: Riad (2 nights)

Days 9-10: Marrakech

Farewell the beach and head from Essaouira to Marrakech. Once again, get lost in the mayhem of the souqs or seek out Majorelle Gardens to relax in a tropical oasis.
