From the markets to the mountains
Be immersed in everyday Moroccan culture, from shopping in the souks to hiking in the mountains and finally with the sand beneath your feet.
Find yourself in the hustle and bustle of the medina one minute and secluded in serene paradise the next. With long sandy beaches, expansive desert, rocky mountain villages and vibrant city and market life, Morocco offers something to all - it's irresistible.
Also known as the ‘Red City’ due to the striking clay walls and sandstone buildings that line the streets, Marrakech is both vibrant and enchanting, exhibiting some of the world's most spectacular architecture. Inside the medina, you’ll wind your way through its bustling streets, past a number of unassuming doorways, which hide behind it the luxurious and traditional Moroccan riads. Traditionally built for privacy, most riads are formed around an internal courtyard, often centred with a fountain, to which the internal windows overlook. Expect lavish interiors, from the intricately carved wooden doors, to the mosaic tiles, handwoven Berber rugs, patterned archways and more.
Drive just an hour outside of Marrakech and you’ll find yourself in a land rich with culture, embedded with ancient traditions and the most stunning scenery you could ever imagine. Snow-capped peaks, lush valleys, towering canyons and olive groves are just some of the sights you can expect to see. At an elevation of 4,167m, Mount Toubkal is the highest peak in the mountains and popular amongst experienced hikers, whilst others may prefer to relax in one of the luxurious Kasbah’s overlooking the valleys.
