Day 1 Casablanca
With a bustling old medina, Art-Deco buildings, contemporary art galleries and one of Africa's biggest ports, Casablanca is a city of all ages.
Day 2 Rabat/Moulay Idriss
The great walls of Rabat enclose a largely modern city with a laidback atmosphere, but there's still plenty of historic sights to remind visitors of its colourful past. The sacred pilgrimage town of Moulay Idriss is a wonder to explore as the faithful gather to pay homage to the founding father of Islam in Morocco at the 8th-century mausoleum.
Days 3 & 4 Volubilis/Fes
Dating from antiquity, Volubilis is now a site of wonderfully preserved Roman ruins near the town of Moulay Idriss. Being in Fes is like stepping back in time. Stately city walls, labyrinthine medinas and a wonderfully preserved Old City has made Fes one of Morocco's favourite destinations.
Days 5 - 7 Chefchaouen/Tangier
Along with a relaxed vibe and charming medina, the blue hues of Chefchaouen, set against the greenness of the Rif Mountains, startle even the weariest traveller. Combining the old-world sights and sounds of the kasbah with the contemporary charms of its recently redeveloped seaside promenade, the vibrant port of Tangier has plenty to offer.
Days 8 & 9 Marrakech
Marrakech is a feast for the senses. Be enticed by the alluring scents and brilliant colours of the spice markets, the sounds of the musicians and the perfume of its gardens.
Day 10 Aroumd
Perched on a rocky outcrop, the remote village of Aroumd offers stunning views across the High Atlas Mountains and a unique opportunity to experience traditional Berber culture.
Day 11 Ait Benhaddou
Sitting on a hilltop and looking unchanged since the 11th century, Ait Benhaddou is one of Morocco's most treasured, alluring and iconic sites.
Day 12 Zagora
Known as the 'doors of the desert', Zagora is a palmerie town with great pottery and ceramic workshops on the way into the desert.
Day 13 Sahara Camp
Set in a vast landscape of shifting sands and undulating shapes, the massive Erg Chigaga dunes are one of the Sahara's most iconic sights.
Day 14 Taroudannt
With an energetic, bustling city centre, Taroudannt is a great opportunity to see an untouched traditional Berber lifestyle and pick up a bargain in one of the many souqs.
Days 15 & 16 Essaouira
A seaside town with undeniable charm, Essaouira's stone ramparts play host to whitewashed houses with bright blue shutters, art galleries and a picturesque harbour.
Days 17 & 18 Marrakech
Marrakech is home to a seemingly endless mosaic of souqs. Each is devoted to a separate trade: pottery, woodwork, copper, leather, carpets and spices.
