DAY 3: Sunday - Rabat, Tangiers (-+2h50min)

  • After breakfast, explore Morocco political and administrative capital. A clean central beach, an intact and evocative Kasbah, and an attractive walled medina that is far less touristy than those in other large cities. Our tour starts from the Mohammed V and Hassan II Mausoleum, Hassan Tower, the landmark of Rabat and one of the oldest mosques of Morocco.
  • The Kasbah des Oudaya, Rabat historic citadel occupies the site of the original Ribat (fortress-monastery) that gave the city its name. This afternoon, we drive along the Atlantic Coast to Tangiers. En route, there is hardly a better place for lunch (own expense) than the village of Moulay Bousselham. Time allowing, we will perhaps stop at Asilah (a small-town from the Roman era) known for its imposing ramparts and Portuguese fortifications which enclose the old town of white and blue washed houses.
  • Continuing our drive along the Atlantic coast (1 hour), we soon enter the urban area of Tangier. We penetrate the intricate medina of Tangier and reach our hotel for the next two nights.
  • Meal: Breakfast
DAY 4: Monday - Tangiers

  • Today we explore Tangier, an incredibly unique city with many landmarks: Morocco main gate to Europe and the settling place of many artists from around the world. Flanked by a row of French colonial&ndashera buildings Mendoubia gardens, is popular with young couples and local families on weekends.
  • On a peak of the central hill, surrounded by historic cannons, an engraved stone monument displays the speech King Mohammed V gave to the French asking for Moroccan independence in 1947. We visit the Marshan district and its Roman tombs and admire the Moresque interiors of St Andrews church. This magnificent church is a tribute to the harmony of Christianity and Islam where you can see the Lord Prayer written in exquisite Arabic calligraphy and the numerous Andalusian-Moroccan touches throughout the building.
  • We cross the fish market where fresh fish is sold at auction to arrive to the Jewish cemetery, dominating the sea front. Head to the American legation, the first American property to ever open outside the United States.
  • Descend onto Petit Socco and have a mint tea at Cafe Tingis, a favorite with the Beat Generation. A 15-minute drive outside Tangier, where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean is Cap Spartel and the legendary cave of Hercules where he rested after he retrieved the golden apple.

  • Meal: Breakfast
DAY 5: Tuesday - Tangiers, Chefchaouen (-+2h15min)

  • After breakfast we drive to Chefchaouen or (Chaouen). The roads wind around the valley edges as we travel towards the Rif Mountains.  En route we explore Tetouan, one of the two major ports of Morocco on the Mediterranean Sea, famous for the beautiful patios and palaces of Moresque heritage.
  • Erected on an ancient Roman site, Tetouan was destroyed during the 15th century by the Portuguese. The fall of the kingdom of Granada in southern Spain in 1492 marked the renaissance of Tetouan. More than its architecture, the cuisine, the music, the jewelry and the embroidery speak of their Andalusian origin. Perhaps, visit the Ethnographical Museum to admire the glory of its Moresque Heritage.
  • We continue to Chefchaouen through the dramatic gorges of Oued Laou, connecting the Mediterranean beaches to the world famous azure town.
  • Upon arrival, we explore Chefchaouen, quite likely the most charming village in Morocco with its Medina, Bab el Ansar and the famed Ras el Maa (waterfall), where a short walk takes us to Rif Sebbanine, the laundry district and its 15th century mosque. Chefchaouen is about losing ourselves in its streets. Their Kasbah built in the 15th century is worth a detour. Overnight at the hotel

  •  Drive to Ouazzane, the holy city for Moroccan Jewish population who still make pilgrimages to venerate the tomb of several marabouts (Moroccan saints), particularly Moul Anrhaz, the local name for Rabbi Amram ben Diwan, an eighteenth-century rabbi who lived in the city and whose burial site is associated with several miracles. Home of many pillars of Sufism.
  • We drive to the ancient Roman city of Volubilis to explore its stunning ruins. Impressive stone arches and columns, some tumbled down and others still standing tall against the vivid blue sky, invite us to take a step back in time. Only about half of the 40-hectare UNESCO site at Volubilis has been excavated. The better-known monuments are in the northern part of the site, farthest from the entrance in the south: The Capitol, dedicated to the Triad of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, dates to 218AD the Basilica and 1300 sq. meter Forum are nearby. Here, floors of what were once family dwellings are still covered with decorative tile mosaics depicting mythological beings, such as Orpheus charming animals with his lyre and Hercules performing his legendary 12 labors. That so many of these tiles are still in place and exhibiting their colors after centuries of exposure to the elements, is astonishing.
  • Then off to the Imperial city of Meknes, the one-time home of the Moroccan sultanate with its all-winding narrow streets in the medina and grand buildings that warrant it as an imperial city. Remnants of three sets of fortifications, ingeniously incorporated into the citys road networks, emphasize its past importance and glory.  The king tomb sits at the heart of what remains of the original imperial city, flanked by an almighty royal granary, the magnificent Bab el-Mansour. Continue to Fes for overnight

  • The Imperial capital was a renowned center of medieval learning and at its heart still remains the Karaouine, one of the oldest, still functioning universities in the world. In the neighboring building is the Attarine Medersa (Koranic college), a jewel of Hispano-Moorish architecture, built in the 14th century.

On the top of the flattest area you could imagine, suddenly a long mountain of sand rises. This mountain is surrounded by flat and desolate nature on all sides, and you could end up wondering if it really is real. But so it is, even if its existence is so weird that it has given rise to legends and myths among the locals.
  • Upon arrival at the camp you will witness the sunset from over the desert dunes and be astounded by the peace and calm as well as the changing colors of the landscape.

  • Here, both the Todra and Dades Rivers have carved out cliff-sided canyons on their final 25-mile stretch through the mountains, leaving behind this series of reliefs and etches in the rock.
  • The Todra is the name of the last 600 meters (just under 2,000 feet) of the canyons. In places, this gorge measures just 33 feet across, but the cliffs are more than 500 feet tall on either side. The river has since dried up, leaving only the imagination to picture the powerful natural forces that once carved this region. The gorge, though in a remote, is popular for its hiking paths and a well-maintained dirt road for visitors to share with mules and other pack animals.
  • After lunch (on your own), we&rsquoll drive through the Dades Valley with its majestic sand castles and incredible rock formations known as &ldquomonkey toes&rdquo. The route through Dades Valley is also known as the Road of One Thousand Kasbahs.

Its mild climate and expansive stretches of ocean sand also place it among Morocco top beach towns.
