Who is the tour designed for?
Our Essence of Morocco tour will suit those who love to explore and enjoy getting off the beaten track. While we will certainly visit the renowned medinas of Morocco (Tangier, Chefchaouen, Fes, Marrakech), a large part of the itinerary is dedicated to less-visited but equally, if not more, beautiful areas. For us, the essence of Morocco is its natural beauty, its ancient civilisation, and its people.
While the trip does involve a considerable amount of time in the car, we do allow time for 3 day hikes, one of which is in the Sahara desert (*possibility to extend the desert hiking and wilderness camping). The hikes are not strenuous but you should be prepared to walk for up to 4-5 hours on the longest day in the desert, on undulating terrain.
We also include two nights camping in the Sahara, one of which may be chosen as a mobile wilderness camp to allow you immersion in the rich environment.
