Maroc 2017

We started our six-week trip in Gibraltar and arrived in Tangier by sea, a perfect introduction to Morocco. From there, we headed to the blue medina of Chefchaouen in the Rif mountains and continued to the capital Rabat on the Atlantic coast, with a day trip to Casablanca. Then came Meknes (with a great day trip to the Roman ruins of Volubilis) and Fez, both easily reached by train, followed by a long night bus journey to Merzouga for a taste of the Saharan desert at Erg Chebbi.

Dadès Gorge: the kasbah of Ait Arbi and the geological formation known as“Pattes de Singes” (Monkey's fingers) Dadès Gorge: the kasbah of Ait Arbi and the geological formation known as“Pattes de Singes” (Monkey's fingers)From there, we took the Route des Kasbahs skirting the southern side of the High Atlas and explored the Todra, Dadès and Drâa Valleys before heading to Taliouine and Taroudannt. We made a short visit to Essaouira on the Atlantic coast and spent a few days trekking in the High Atlas, starting from Imlil, before heading to Marrakesh to catch our flight back home.

We used public transport throughout, except for one day when we rented a car to explore the Drâa Valley from Ouarzazate.
