"One of my favorite travel memories was in Chefchaouen, a small village tucked between mountains in the north of Morocco that is painted entirely blue! It was completely unlike any place I had ever seen and its unique location made for a fascinating mix of Moroccan, Spanish and Berber cultures."
Featured trips & expertise
Follow this two-week moderately-paced circuit around Morocco for unique cultural experiences, desert adventures, and coastal relaxation. Tour the north starting in modern Casablanca and Rabat before heading to the Chefchaouen in the Rif Mountains. Get lost in the culture capital of Fes and its medieval medina, follow caravan routes through desert oases, wind through souks and secret gardens in Marrakech and relax along the Atlantic coast enjoying fresh seafood in Essaouira.
Morocco stretches from the Mediterranean coast to the dunes of the Sahara, with lots of varied geography in between. As a result, climate and weather vary greatly depending on where you spend your time. September through May works well for most travelers, and those prioritizing a trip to the desert should stick to winter and spring. If you're traveling in summer months and want to beat the heat, Tangier in the north and Essaouira on the Atlantic Seaboard are great options.
