Morocco Holidays: Suggestions for Rewarding Holidays to Morocco
A holiday to Morocco takes you to a challenging and unusual country, only a couple of hour’s flight from London. Besides the imperial cities, souks and medinas, there is great deal more to see with the variety of landscape in Morocco: beaches, mountains and deserts. However, as distances are quite big you need some careful planning to make your Morocco Holidays an exciting experience without over-tiring yourself within the time you have for your trip.
Here are some suggestions for rewarding holidays to Morocco, based on a circuit of one-week, two-weeks and three-weeks. To really appreciate Morocco at its own pace, we suggest a holiday of at least 10 days. This will afford you plenty of time to switch off and immerse yourself in the wonders of Morocco.
For a week Morocco Holidays
If you’re holidaying for a week in Morocco, then a good option is to hang out in the imperial cities of Fez or Marrakech. Both are firmly rooted in history, with a great deal of majestic palaces, old medinas and museums to enjoy. The souks are both big and varied making for a great shopping experience.
In Fez, nearby Meknes is another great imperial city worth exploring and Volubilis, just outside Meknes, is one of the most important Roman settlements in North Africa. Or you could take a day trip to the Middle Atlas to explore the spectacular falls of the Cascades d’Ouzoud, or an extended excursion to the remote plateaux of l’Arid and the limestone gorge of Cirque du Jaffar.
In Marrakech, you could take a day trip into the High Atlas, to the Ourika Valley, Oukaimeden up to the Tizi-n-Tchika pass. Another easy day trip is to the falls of the Cascades d’Ouzoud or the great cavern of Imi-n-Ifli.
