Two weeks in Morocco is enough time for a proper grand tour, from the souks of Fes and Marrakesh to the glittering Sahara, High Atlas mountains, and windy Atlantic coast. Those looking for an activity-packed trip should spend time exploring southern Morocco by camel, going on guided hikes, and desert camping, while those traveling during summer will love sticking to the Imperial cities of the north and splitting their time between classic stops and renowned cities like Tangier and Chefchaouen.
