If you are looking for dizzying diversity for a small group trip, try Morocco. Here you'll find epic mountain ranges, ancient cities, sweeping deserts – and warm hospitality. Above all, varied experiences suited to everyone in your group. From pale dunes to the peaks of the High Atlas, Morocco is tailor-made for travellers that love nature. The richly coloured and patterned rugs are equally inspiring as the mountains and dunes. The cities have a nomadic touch with medinas, markets and cafes from another world. This is a stories country which leaves the jaw dropped at every turn - hiking up North Africa’s highest peak, learning to roll couscous, camel trekking in the desert, shopping in the souqs or getting lost in the medina. Your stay is in luxury boutique riads, where you can relax on panoramic terraces and mop up delicately flavoured tajines – before sweating it all out in a restorative hammam. It doesn’t just sound like bliss, it is.
What to expect
If you are a fashion devotee, then start your trip at Jardin Majorelle, French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent’s villa where he preserves the vision of its original owner, French landscape painter Jacques Majorelle. Follow it up with the YSL museum. Time at Djemaa El Fna, Marrakesh’s main square is all about the hoopla and halqa (street theater), a food market and restaurants. Soak in the full vibe of the city visiting medinas, and dunes and tombs before jumping headlong into the art scene of the city. This trip is ideal for a small group with similar interests and intrigues.
Creating a trip ‘just’ right for you
Fashion, culture and art! If this is a theme you’d like to explore on a journey, Morocco is for you. You also get to explore it with like-minded travellers who are likely to feel awe struck by the same things and want to unwind with you with a glass of wine at the end of the day. This trip is about fortifying and creating new friendships over the love for exploring new destinations.
