Days 1-3 Fes
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.
Day 4 Erfoud
Set on the fringes of the Sahara Desert, the old oasis town of Erfoud attracts visitors preparing to embark over the vast expanse of rolling desert dunes.
Day 5 Merzouga
With the backdrop of the orange-coloured Erg Chebbi sand dunes, the small Saharan village of Merzouga feels like the modern world has left it behind, charmingly so.
Day 6 Desert Camp
A vast sea of shifting wind-swept sand that's formed into picturesque undulating crests and valleys, the Erg Chebbi dunes are one of the world's classic landscapes.
Day 7 Todra Gorge
Located on the remote east side of the High Atlas Mountains, Todra Gorge is a spectacular canyon with sheer rock walls up to 300m high.
Days 8-9 Atlas Mountains
A charming Berber village in the Atlas Mountains, Boutaghrar is the perfect base to explore the Mgoun Valley and the Valley of the Roses.
Day 10 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 11 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.
Days 12-13 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 14-15 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.
