Do you aspire to travel to the exotic locations featured in the novel-based TV series? If you just have a few days to spare, then our vacation from Tangier…
Morocco in two weeks. That is the ambitious goal of this circuit. And the result is a very complete program in which we will visit the great attractions of the country and you will have time for everything: cultural visits to monuments, tours through the most unique nature of Morocco, water activities in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, camel rides in the Sahara desert, meeting with local people to learn about their traditional way of life… Undoubtedly, the best option for those who want to take advantage of their vacation is to set up a total route through this fascinating country.
Morocco has great monuments and cities that await travelers like you with open arms. Some places are even Unesco World Heritage Sites. And this circuit integrates them into its program, configuring a very rich artistic and cultural proposal. We are talking about the cities of Tetouan, Meknes, Rabat, Fez, Marrakech, and Essaouira, and protected monuments such as Ait Ben Haddou or the Roman archaeological site of Volubilis. In addition, in this circuit of Morocco in two weeks we add localities and places of interest that, although they do not have that distinction, have the ability to surprise and seduce any visitor. This is the case of Asilah, Chaouen, Ouarzazate and Rissani or kasbahs such as Taourirt. For all these reasons, lovers of history, architecture, and art, in general, will enjoy this circuit in a special way.
Beyond the beauty of the cities and monuments, in this two-week tour of Morocco, you will enjoy the most beautiful natural areas of the country, which will allow you to discover that its scenic variety is much wider than usually imagined. Of course, the Sahara desert, which consists of hamadas, oases, and fine sand dunes, as you will see in Erg Chebbi, occupies a prominent place. But Morocco also has rich green areas, such as the Ifrane National Park in the Middle Atlas, full of cedars and Barbary monkeys. In the High Atlas, you will observe the high mountain environment that reigns here, with snow-capped peaks for a good part of the year. The Atlantic Ocean will embrace you three times, in Asilah, Rabat, and Essaouira. And in the inland plains, you will observe a wealth of crops controlled by man, with the argan forests standing out.
In addition, a two-week trip to Morocco cannot forget the popular traditions. Therefore, our program will bring you in contact with local people to learn about their culture and way of life: artisans in the historical medinas, semi-nomadic desert villages, cooperatives producing argan oil, and Gnawa music groups. And gastronomy, of course, will be the icing on the cake of this circuit that will allow you to savor to the fullest a welcoming country where it is impossible to get bored.
This tour, which takes you to discover Morocco in two weeks, starts in Tangier and ends in Marrakech. This is a detailed description of each of the 14 days that make up the tour.
When you land in Morocco, a member of our agency staff will be there to greet you. If you decide to take a ferry over the Strait of Gibraltar, our English-speaking driver will meet you there in a private vehicle. If you fly into the city, he or she will also meet you at the port.
As soon as we’re in the car, we’ll go to Asilah, a beach city. One of the best discoveries of my two-week trip through Morocco was a small town that is bathed in the Atlantic Ocean. Its tidy walled medina and residences colored white and blue present a charming and welcome image to any visitor.
In addition, it is a very dynamic locality at the cultural level, with different art festivals throughout the year. Strolling along the seashore is a highly recommended experience for this first day of the route, and so is tasting its traditional fish dishes in the surroundings of the port and in the medina. Precisely in its historic center is located the riad where you will spend the first night.
Although we will return to the coast of the Atlantic Ocean on subsequent days of this two-week tour to Morocco, we go to the interior of the nation on the second day. We’ll go to Tetouan, a city that still has a medina designated by Unesco as a World Heritage Site, after breakfast at the riad in Asilah. If time allows, we’ll explore it at our leisure and learn about the center’s most significant historical features as well as the Spanish influence that still permeates its streets from its time as the seat of the Spanish Protectorate of Morocco in the 20th century.
Later, the route of this day will reach Chaouen, also known as Chefchaouen or ‘the blue city by the predominant color in its medina. This is undoubtedly a hallmark of this town, which has a lot of charm thanks to its narrow and steep streets, full of traditional establishments. Its location, at the foot of the Rif Mountains, gives it an even more unique touch and facilitates the appearance of viewpoints from which to enjoy panoramic views of the surroundings and the town itself.
You will be able to discover all this at your leisure during this day, as your accommodation for the night will be in the medina.
Despite its small size, Chaouen is a city with a lot to see, so it is worth staying here a full day. That will happen this day, the third of our Morocco tour in two weeks, which will begin with breakfast at the riad in the medina.
A tour of Chaouen can include a visit to the city’s kasbah, where there is now an ethnographic museum. The Uta el Hamman Square is also a good place to spend a pleasant time, as well as other picturesque corners of the medina, such as its various historic gates: Bab El Mahrouk, Bab El Hammar, or Bab El Onsar. And of course, this is a great time to shop in its traditional establishments, where local craftsmen sell their own work in leather, sheep’s wool, wood, or ceramics.
And after a day of walking, sightseeing and shopping, you will rest for the night in the same riad in the medina.
In this two-week circuit of Morocco, contrasts are continuous. And so you will see on this fourth day, in which we will leave a small town located in the Rif Mountains (Chaouen) to reach one of the main cities of the country: Rabat, it’s capital. Therefore, after breakfast, we will embark on a journey of about 250 km by road to reach it.
In Rabat, which forms a single urban conglomerate with the neighboring Salé, you will have the opportunity to see amazing monuments that earned it the title of World Heritage by Unesco. For example, the Kasbah of the Oudayas, with pleasant views of the sea. Or the Hassan Tower, built by order of the Almohad Sultan Yacub Al-Mansur in the twelfth century and, precisely for this reason, bears a strong resemblance to the Giralda of Seville. The mausoleum of Mohammed V, king of Moroccan independence, is another imposing monument and very dear to the local citizens.
You will also be able to see firsthand the heartbeat of a city of Rabat’s importance, which also has its own beach, lively souks, a pleasant Ville Nouvelle in Arabic-Art Deco style, and an interesting range of museums. And thanks to the fact that you will rest in the evening in a centrally located riad, you will have an easier time planning this free day.
Of the 14 days that make up this circuit of Morocco in two weeks, the fifth is one of the most interesting at the historical-artistic level. It will begin with breakfast at the riad in Rabat and, after that, we will start our road trip with outstanding stops.
The first of them will be at the ruins of Volubilis: this archaeological site is one of the best of the Carthaginian and Roman period in all of North Africa, as it was an important city in the province of Mauritania Tingitana. It will be easy to understand as we pass by the remains that are still standing, such as the columns of the temple of Jupiter or the arch of Caracalla. Magnificent mosaics have also been preserved, as well as other elements datable to the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D., although there is also evidence of earlier remains from the Carthaginian period.
After immersing ourselves in Morocco’s most ancient past, we will return to the road, this time to visit another city that preserves a great monumental heritage: Meknes. Named capital during the reign of Sultan Moulay Ismail in the late seventeenth century, you can still see buildings and structures of that time, such as the gates of the medina wall, including Bab Mansur. You can also visit the mausoleum of the aforementioned sultan, one of the most important leaders of his time.
After visiting Meknes, we will head to the next and last destination of the day: Fes. Because of its religious and cultural importance, it is worth spending a full day in this city, considered “Imperial” for having been the capital in the past like three others in this two-week Morocco circuit (Rabat, Meknes, and Marrakech). Therefore, upon arrival in Fez, you will have free time to get acquainted with the city and spend the night in a riad in the medina, with an eye on the guided tour the next day.
After a rich breakfast at the riad in Fez, you will meet our local official guide for a personalized tour of the city. This walking tour will give you the opportunity to discover the historic medina, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco for its beauty and importance.
This tour will not miss the most symbolic places, such as the Karaouine Mosque, which houses one of the oldest universities in the world. The medersas or Koranic schools of Fez are not only references of thought for all Islam, but are also monuments of the first level, so it is possible to visit some, such as Bou Inania. And in the medina or in its surroundings there are places of extraordinary interest, such as the Mellah or Jewish Quarter, near the Royal Palace, the official residence of which you can admire its golden bronze doors. Or Nejjarine Square, the tanners’ quarter, and many other charming corners.
In the afternoon, which is free, you can extend the discovery of Fez by visiting places that were left pending in the morning, or enter museums, or even shopping in its prestigious craft stores. And late in the day, you will repeat your night’s rest in the riad of the medina.
On the seventh day of this two-week tour of Morocco, we return to the road to continue discovering the great attractions of the country. And we will do it after breakfast at the riad in the medina of Fez. Our vehicle will head towards the far south, where we will arrive at the end of the day.
The first stop will be in the Middle Atlas Mountains, home to natural areas and towns of great interest. This is the case of Ifrane, nicknamed the “Moroccan Switzerland”: here, at more than 1,700 meters above sea level, rainfall is abundant, especially in winter in the form of snow. For this reason, its buildings have gable roofs, which gives it a very different image from the rest of the country.
The Cedar National Park, popularly known as the Monkey Forest, is a short distance from Ifrane and the nearby city of Azrou. These two titles were given to it because of the cedar, which dominates the area and blankets it in greenery, and the fact that the Barbary macaque, a critically endangered and distinctive animal of Morocco, has its natural habitat there.
We’ll traverse the Middle Atlas after touring this distinctive protected area to get to the southern region’s arid and desert landscape. In order to do this, we must pass through the Ziz Valley, which leads us immediately to Erfoud, a little town well-known for its significant fossils and substantial marble production.
And a little further south, Merzouga awaits us: this town gives its name to one of the most spectacular corners of the Sahara Desert. Therefore, we will get off the vehicle to get on the back of camels and ride through the nearby dunes of Erg Chebbi. In them is our tent camp, where we will receive a Berber welcome tea and where dinner will be served. And in one of these traditional tents, under an imposing starry sky, you will sleep at night, feeling the overwhelming peace of the desert.
On the eighth day, it is worth getting up early, because one of the most exciting experiences of this two-week Morocco circuit awaits us: watching the sunrise over the dunes of Erg Chebbi. With the lights of dawn still in our memory, we will have breakfast in the tents camp.
Then we will return to Merzouga and, from there, we will go to the village of Khamlia, better known as the ‘village of the blacks’ because its inhabitants have mostly this color of skin. The reason is that their most distant ancestors were brought here as slaves from Sudan. Today, they retain some inherent features of their traditional culture, such as percussion rhythms. This can be seen in the Gnawa music performance that we will attend: a show that is worth seeing because it is listed as Intangible Heritage of Humanity by Unesco.
After living this experience of great ethnographic and human value, we will return to our 4×4 to travel along tracks of the mythical Paris-Dakar rally, which will take us through kohl mines and remains of French and Berber settlements in the desert. This route will have an outstanding stop at a panoramic point from which we will admire the immensity of the dunes of Erg Chebbi. Shortly after we will make contact with a population of desert nomads in the process of sedentarization. But despite this, they maintain a traditional and unique way of life that we will know in situ after tea.
At the end of the day, we will return to the tents camp where we will have time to rest, have dinner, enjoy the beauty of the starry sky and sleep in the tents that make up this unique accommodation in the middle of the desert.
On the ninth day of the tour, we will leave the dunes of Erg Chebbi but we will visit other essential places for those who visit Morocco in two weeks. For this, we will have breakfast in the tented camp and take our camels back to Merzouga. During the morning there will also be time for a refreshing shower (at the camp or in a hotel in Merzouga, depending on the package contracted).
Back on the road, we will stop in the nearby town of Rissani, which preserves a beautiful historic medina and scenes hard to forget, such as its traditional market and donkey parking. The route will continue to the Todra Gorges, a spectacular rocky gorge with walls some 200 meters high at some points. It is, therefore, a famous place among climbers, but also for all travelers in general.
After admiring this unique canyon, on foot and from the road, we will continue through the Dades Valley, the Valley of the Roses and the Route of the Thousand Kasbah, so called because of the numerous Berber fortresses that mark this route dotted with palm groves.
Finally, we will arrive in Ouarzazate, known as the ‘Hollywood of Morocco’ thanks to its famous film studios, which we can visit if there is time and if so agreed by the expedition. The main monument of this city is located on the outskirts and is the Kasbah of Taourirt, an adobe fortress that was the residence of the powerful Pasha of Marrakech and Lord of the Atlas. The decorative richness preserved in some interior spaces will make us understand it.
And to end the day, you will rest in a hotel in Ouarzazate, which also includes dinner.
After a filling breakfast at the hotel in Ouarzazate, we’ll drive the 25 kilometers to the Ait Ben Haddou ksar. One of the highlights of this two-week journey through Morocco is this, which was not by chance designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It is a walled settlement with its original appearance still there from centuries ago, when it was a key location on the caravan routes through the desert, connecting Marrakech and Timbuktu. And in more modern times, it is still utilized as a set for television shows and motion pictures, including some that are well-known, like Game of Thrones or Lawrence of Arabia.
After visiting this spectacular monument, we will return to the road, this time to cross the High Atlas through the Tizi n’Tichka pass, at more than 2,200 meters above sea level. The small villages that are settled on the slopes of these mountains and the panoramic views that surround the crossing will offer us an unforgettable view of this mountain range, whose peaks remain snow-capped for much of the year.
In the afternoon we will arrive in Marrakech, the Red City, one of the most important tourist destinations in the country. For the time being, you will enjoy some free time to get in touch with its rhythm of life and in the evening you will rest in a riad in the medina, very close to the places you will visit the following day with our guide.
Marrakech is home to some of the most famous monuments and tourist sites in the country. And therefore, it can not be missing in the program of this Morocco tour in two weeks. To discover and understand them, you will have the services of an official local guide, whom you will meet after breakfast at the riad.
Our guide will design a walking route through the historic medina, declared World Heritage by Unesco. The itinerary may include such symbolic monuments as the Kutubia Mosque (exterior), the Saadian Tombs, the Bahia Palace or the Ben Youssef Medersa.
Surely you will pass by the Jemaa el-Fna Square, also declared an Intangible Heritage of Humanity. In its stalls, you can shop during your free afternoon, or in other neighborhoods of artisans scattered throughout the medina. You can also take the opportunity to visit museums such as the Museum of Marrakech or perhaps visit other places outside the medina, such as the Majorelle Gardens or the modern district of Gueliz. At the end of the day, you will spend the night in a charming riad.
One of the advantages of this two-week tour of Morocco is that there will still be time for another escape to the sea, heading to Essaouira. It will be on this twelfth day, after breakfast at the riad in the medina of Marrakech.
The road trip is only 190 km long, passing through argan forests at certain points. In fact, we can stop at a local cooperative to discover how argan oil is produced by traditional means. A task to which many people are dedicated and which has been declared an Intangible Heritage of Humanity by Unesco.
Upon arrival in Essaouira, the city will quickly conquer you with its unique beauty. A former Portuguese citadel, it still preserves some of its most famous military structures, such as the maritime fortress, chosen for filming scenes of Game of Thrones. Its port and its historic medina also declared World Heritage, retain picturesque corners and a lively life for the enjoyment of any traveler.
After the visit to Essaouira, which you will organize at your leisure in the afternoon, you will rest in a riad in the heart of the city.
A two-week vacation in Morocco leaves enough time for a free day in which to carry out activities of different kinds. And nothing better than doing it in Essaouira on this penultimate day, as an epilogue of the trip. After breakfast in the riad of the medina, you will have many options in your hand to enjoy the day, thanks to the privileged location of this city on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
If you like water sports, you can enjoy activities such as kite surfing, windsurfing, or jet skiing. Some companies and professionals also offer horseback riding on the beach, something that can also be done on camels or even quads.
You can also dedicate the day to shopping in local artisan establishments or calmly taste the typical dishes of the local gastronomy, mainly fish. And if the chosen option is simply tranquility, you can indulge yourself with a swim on the beaches of the city or its surroundings. Whatever your choice, you will be able to organize it without haste, as you will spend the night in a riad in the center of Essaouira.
On this day, our two-week journey across Morocco comes to a close. After your final breakfast at the riad in Essaouira, the driver will pick you up in a private vehicle to undertake the short two-and-a-half-hour transfer from this city to Marrakech International Airport. At the terminal, we will bid you farewell with a heartfelt appreciation for your confidence in us and best hopes for a future reunion in our nation.
