Holidays in Morocco

Discover the hidden hotspots of Morocco

Although Marrakech holidays have seen a rise in popularity over the last couple of years, this vibrant North African destination is still relatively undiscovered and offers some secret hotspots for intrepid travellers. On a recent Morocco tour through the Atlas Mountains to the edge of the Sahara Desert, I found myself astounded at every tight mountain corner - passing donkeys and carts, tractors and at one point a herd of camel, this self-drive tour was definitely the most eye opening I’d ever taken.


Once leaving Marrakech, a city that can both awaken and overload your senses in one hit, head towards the snow tipped mountains of the High Atlas and over the Tizi-n-Tichka Pass where you’ll see a totally different side to the culture, people and landscape of this diverse country – you’ll also welcome the change in pace as you meander through villages and stunning vistas.

A couple of hotspots which should make up any Morocco tour include Todra Gorge, an awe-inspiring gorge likened to the Grand Canyon nestled within the High Atlas. With rock walls up to 525 feet high on each side, driving through the narrow canyon is certainly a bucket list moment.

Further down the pass, Dades Valley is affectionately known (and rightly so) as the ‘road of a thousand Kasbahs’. These beautiful palaces dot the vivid red valley, ensuring the snap happy tourist many stunning reminders of the trip. Not to mention the other souvenirs, including fossilised rocks (be warned, friendly berber traders relentless in their sales patter will appear from nowhere along the pass), rosewater oil and perfume (a real local delicacy) and a belly full of mint tea!
