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.

Travelling north to south, fertile soils give way to the sands of the Sahara. West to east, cultivated coastal plains contrast with fascinating imperial cities and atmospheric medinas. Explore the historical sites and natural wonders that reveal its cultural diversity, from Berber and Arabised areas to former French, Spanish and Portuguese cities.

Morocco dynasties moved their capital according to personal inclination or trade routes, encompassing, in turn, Marrakech, Fez, Meknes and Rabat. The remarkably sited city of Fez is wedged in a valley, its houses climbing up the slope on either side – its medina is little changed since medieval times and surrounded by original gates and fortifications. The ancient walled city of Marrakech reveals gardens, souks and palaces. Meknes is the capital of Moulay Ismail, a 17th-century Sultan.

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