GRAND TOUR OF MOROCCO

From the coast to the Atlas mountains, from the desert to the Imperial cities, from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean coast, staying in Riads, historic and coastal hotels

Morocco as a country is 'grand' in many ways. Measuring some 2,000 kilometres from tip to toe, it dominates North West Africa's coastline, envelops its greatest mountain range, the Atlas, and takes in its tallest peak, Toubkal.

Travelling north to south, fertile soils give way to the desiccated sands of the Sahara. West to east, cultivated coastal plains give way to the intimidating might of the Atlas. Explore the major historical sites and natural wonders of Morocco, whilst revealing its cultural diversity, from Berber and Arabised areas to former French, Spanish and Portuguese cities.

This tour features a careful and varied selection of accommodation, consisting of riads and heritage hotels of character with coastal hotels.
