Souks, Spices, and the Sahara on a Morocco Vacation

On your Morocco vacation you’ll travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Sahara Desert, from ancient city to Andalusian village, experiencing varied landscapes, rich history, and great diversity.

One of the great joys of a Morocco trip is staying in a charming riad in Marrakech or Fes, from where you can explore the city’s gigantic puzzle of souks and alleys. As soon as you enter the labyrinthine streets of the medinas, the historic heart of Moroccan cities, the aroma of spices and freshly baked bread fills the air. In Old Fes, trawling the intact medieval city is a surreal experience. Old and new mix in the capital Rabat, and in Casablanca where art deco architecture and café-lined Corniche Walk provide an interesting contrast to the rest of the country.

Walk along the ramparts of the walled city in windy and colorful Essaouira. Roam the cobblestoned alleys of the charming hilltop Andalusian-style village of Chefchaouen where houses are painted blue, and women still wear the traditional a red-and-white-striped fouta, and straw hats topped with pom-poms.

Take a break and relax on golden sands at the tranquil crescent bay of Agadir. A short way from Agadir is Taroudant, an ideal stop, specially if you’d like to expand your understanding of Berber culture. Savor fresh oysters from a local farm in the coastal town of Oualidia, which sits on a picturesque coastal tidal lagoon teeming with birds. Sipping mint tea is central to the Moroccan way of life and so is bathing in a hammam. You can live like a local by signing up for a traditional hammam experience, and get scrubbed clean in a building of fantastic Moorish architecture.

Your holiday turns even more interesting as you ride a camel through the Agafay Desert outside Marrakech, at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Look upward in stunned silence at millions of stars crowding the night sky when you camp overnight, with Bedouins, on the undulating red-tinged dunes of the Sahara near Merzouga.

You can rely on Enchanting Travels to help you select the right riad for your stay, or find the most authentic cultural experiences. We’ll guide you through the planning, so when you’re on the ground in Morocco you’ll make the real connections and get to the heart of the place.
