    12 Days Morocco Trips

    Day 1: Arrival in Marrakech » Transfer to the Riad

    Day 2: Marrakech Sightseeing Tour

    Discover Marrakech’s monuments and the ancient Medina today. A local tour guide will meet you at your riad to start a day where you can explore the ancient landmarks, wander in the exotic Medina, and fascinate yourself with the rich history and culture of Marrakech. The mid-19th century Bahia Palace, spanning an area of 8,000 square meters, is one of Toady’s included moments. The Andalusian style guided its construction. Furthermore visit The Saadian Tombs, constructed in 1557 under Sultan Abdullah al-Ghalib’s reign, came to light in 1917.

    Next visit Ben Youssef Quranic Mosque (dating back to 525 AH) At the hands of the Muslim emir at that time, Yusuf bin Tashfin, and his son Ali bin Yusuf completed its construction, renovation, and transformation into a mosque on an area of 5000 square meters. Last but not least visit the Koutoubia Mosque (built in 1147 AD on the ruins of an old Almoravid palace). Later, visit the Medina, where you will have the opportunity to visit one of Morocco’s exotic markets. Finally, make a last stroll in Jamma el F’na; after that, your guide will leave you to continue wandering on your own. Once you finish, return to the Riad for an overnight stay.

    Day 3: Marrakech » Tizi N’Tichka » Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah » Ouarzazate » Rose Valley » Boumalne Dades (Gorge)

    The third of your 12 days in Morocco starts in Marrakech and continues to Boumalne Dades. Along the way, we will visit the following places: Tizi N’Tichka Pass has an elevation of 2260 meters above sea level; it’s a point between Ouarzazate and Marrakech. Also visit Ait ben Haddou Kasbah, the most famous Kasbah in Morocco, which dates back to the 11th century. Next, we journey to Ouarzazate, often referred to as the Hollywood of Africa, a city renowned for hosting numerous film shoots. A century and a half ago, Ouarzazate was only a military settlement before becoming one of Morocco’s most famous cities in the world. One last stop in Kalaat M’Gouna, known as the Rose City. Finally, we move on to Boumalne Dades to stay overnight.

    Day 4: Boumalne Dades » Tinghir » Todgha Gorge » Rissani » Sahara Desert (Camel Ride)

    Today, we drive to the Sahara Desert. After finishing your breakfast and packing your luggage, we pay a short visit to the monkey’s fingers rock and Dades gorge, then hit the road to the gorgeous gorge of Todgha located in Tinghir region. One of the most amazing places in terms of geology, the gorge has a fantastic view from the top of the canyons. After enjoying some free time for lunch, we proceed to Rissani for a brief tour of its traditional market, which operates three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday.

    From there, we continue to Merzouga once we arrive. You will ride the camels across the golden dunes to reach the desert camp, where you will stay the night. Upon arrival at the camp, a glass of tea awaits you, followed by dinner. The best part of the night starts after dinner. Good vibes and unforgettable moments of Berber drums around the campfire will print in your mind a great image to remember forever.

    Day 5: Sahara Desert Excursion by 4*4

    Without a doubt, it is a combination of days for exploration and relaxation. Following a desert breakfast at your camp, we begin the day of discovery with 4×4 adventures on the dunes, leading to the nomads, where you can put up your hand-moved tent and sip Berber tea. Tipping the Nomads is a way of support and also from that money they live. The Meffis Mountains, an ancient site occupied by new people during French colonialism, come next. A few structures still fit this far. But the French were taking everything out of the mountains and sending it to their land since the mountains were rich in minerals and eyeliner.

    → To Gnawa & Oases:

    Furthermore, we visit Khamlia Village to enjoy listening to Gnawa music. The inhabitants are black-skinned. They are originally from Mali and Sudan, and their primary source of income here in the Sahara is earning tips by singing Africa rythems for tourists after having fun with them. We ate lunch at a local restaurant in the same village that specializes in Berber pizza. Our journey today concludes with a walk through one of the area’s oases to explore what grows in the desert. Finally, we drop you off at the hotel so you can enjoy the remainder of the afternoon, evening, and night.

    Day 6: Sahara Desert » Erfoud » Ziz Valley » Midelt » Cedar Forest » Ifrane » Fes

    Wake up early today to catch one more last sunrise in the desert and witness the magical view of the sand’s color changing every time the sun goes up. After leaving Merzouga, the way takes us to Fes via Ziz Valley, Midelt, and Cedar Forest, where Barbary Macaques lives. We will also pass through Ifrane, a city located in the middle of the Atlas Mountains, and it’s called the Little Switzerland of Morocco. In the late afternoon, we arrive in the scientific capital Fes for an overnight stay at a well-known traditional Riad located in the heart of the Medina.

    Day 7: Fes Sightseeing Tour

    Today, we’re going to explore Fes and all of its historical sites and landmarks. Founded by the Arab ruler Idris in 789 AD, the city of Fez served as an important commercial center and was considered the capital of Morocco on several occasions. It witnessed its golden age under the rule of the Marinids, the ruling dynasty that ruled Fez during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries.

    Nowadays, the city is known as Fez Bali, and it still retains its charm through the passage of time, characterized by the brilliance of its streets, markets, crafts, decorative fountains, and local baths. Begin your visit to Fes with the following landmarks: the Najjarine Fountain, Medrasa Bouanania, Mallah Quarter, and lastly, the Quaraouin Mosque and University.

    Day 8: Fes » Meknes » Volubilis » Rif Mountains » Chefchaouen

    On the eighth day of your Morocco itinerary (12 days), we drive north to Chefchaouen, known as the Blue City of Morocco. Along the way, we will visit historical cities.

Once we arrive the imperial city of Meknes, feel free to visit its rich historical landmarks, such as Qara Prison, Sahrij Souani, Hri Souani, Bab Mansour, and finally the Mausoleum of Moulay Smail. Furthermore, we leave Meknes and continue to the Roman Ruins in Volubilis. As one walks along the trail, one may make out the distant ruins of Volubilis, which testify to the country’s long Roman history. The ancient ruins here take visitors back in time to when the Roman Empire was at its greatest, with its deteriorating walls and weathered columns. Thereafter, we move on to our destination, Chefchaouen, for an overnight stay.

    Day 9: Free Exploration Day in Chefchaouen

    Know some history about ChefChaouen. Since its founding in 1471, the city has been under Berber control. The name is derived from the Arabic words chef (meaning “look”) and chaouen (meaning “horns”). Later, the Catholic Morash turned it into a safe haven for Moroccans and Jews expelled from Spain. Today is a lovely day because you may either spend it lounging in your riad or take another stroll in the stunning Medina’s alleys, marveling at how the inhabitants transformed this once-downtrodden town into a popular destination for tourists in Morocco. In the afternoon, visit the famous Spanish Mosque, which is located at the top of the ground, to catch a magical view of the blue Medina and a memorable sunset. Afterwards, return to the Riad.

    Day 10: Chefchaouen » Tangier » Asilah

    Today, after breakfast with your host, your driver will pick you up from there and continue driving north. Today’s destination is Asilah via Tangier. Once we cross the Rif Mountains and reach the city of Tangier, you have free time to wander in its Medina, where you can also make a break for lunch. From Medina, we continue to visit Cape Spartel and the Cave of Hercule. According to Hercules’ legend, after finishing his twelve labors, he rested in this cave. We will eventually reach Asilah, a charming seaside village known for its vibrant art scene and charming whitewashed houses. We can take it easy on the town’s beautiful beaches, wander its mural-adorned lanes, and generally soak up the ambiance. Overnight stay in a lovely hotel.
