Join a Local Specialist today to explore the medina, one of the largest thriving medieval centres in the world. See the royal palace and ‘Dive Into Culture’ during a visit to the round dye-pits and tanneries revealing Morocco’s ancient leather craft. Spend the rest of the day shopping or relaxing in a lantern-lit courtyard away from the medina crowds. Join your companions this evening for a special opportunity to ‘Connect With Locals’ over a Be My Guest dinner experience, featuring Moroccan specialities served with wine in a traditional Riad.

Day 4: Fez – Midelt – Erfoud

We follow the old caravan trail south, stopping for a Regional Meal in Midelt, a market town set within the high plains between the Middle and High Atlas mountain ranges. Continuing along the palm-fringed Ziz Valley and past the Tafilalt oasis, we arrive in the oasis town of Erfoud, regarded as the Gateway to the Sahara. Its golden façades and towering dunes have made it a popular location for filmmakers for decades. This evening we dine at our hotel.

Hotel: Xaluca Kasbah

Day 5: Erfoud – Tinghir – Dades Valley

Journeying west, we arrive in Tinghir, one of the most beautiful oases in southern Morocco and home to the ruins of the ancient Glaoui palace. We continue through part of the Todra Gorge and cut through the mountains for one of the most dramatic views in the country. Enjoy a memorable Regional Lunch before following the route of a thousand kasbahs to the flourishing Dades Valley. Here we will overnight at one of Trafalgar’s Stays With Stories, Xaluca Dades, surrounded by panoramic views of the Atlas Mountains.

Hotel: Xaluca Dades

Day 6: Dades Valley – Ouarzazate – Aït Ben Haddou – Marrakesh

Blending effortlessly into the arid landscape, Ouarzazate has provided a backdrop for such famous movies as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’, ‘Cleopatra’ and ‘Gladiator’. Visit the UNESCO-listed fortified village of Aït Ben Haddou in the High Atlas Mountains and continue through the Tizi-n-Tichka Pass to Marrakesh – the ‘Red City’. Like many other former imperial cities in Morocco, Marrakesh comprises an old fortified city – the medina – and an adjacent modern city. Marrakesh is home to Morocco’s largest traditional souk (market) where you may wish to spend some time learning the art of haggling.

We travel to the laid-back shores of Essaouira this morning stopping en route to visit a cooperative involved in creating cosmetics from traditional ingredients.

Spend the rest of the evening at leisure.

Morocco

Morocco, where riding a camel over dunes while the sun shimmers dramatically on the horizon is not an unusual thing. It’s where tagines come spiked with saffron and argan.  Carpet merchants haggle in the bazaars and Berber tribesmen herd goats on the slopes of the High Atlas Mountains.

This tour is basically the answer to all your Lawrence of Arabia-type fantasies (right down to the swirling white djellabas). You’ll stay in historic Riads, camp beneath the Saharan stars and enjoy some classic Maghreb hospitality (usually featuring plenty of couscous).

Whether it’s the wind-battered port town of Essaouira, the crumbling Kasbahs or oases of the deep desert, ‘exotic’ doesn’t come close.

Planning your holiday is easy, and speak to your friendly Consultant.
