Luxury Travel to Morocco
An intoxicating fusion of vibrant medinas, breathtaking mountains and an awe-inspiring desert
Morocco’s blend of diverse cultures and landscapes is as romantic as it is compelling. A gateway to Africa from Europe, it is where ancient Berber, Roman, Arab, Spanish and French history meet and mix to create something uniquely alluring.
The Mediterranean and Atlantic coastline is dotted with vibrant cosmopolitan port cities such as Casablanca, Tangier and the capital, Rabat, along with laid-back fishing towns such as bohemian Essaouira, Oualidia, Asilah and Agadir with their long beaches cooled by ocean winds.
Inland, find Marrakesh, whose medieval walls enclose legendary souks (reason enough to visit Morocco), sumptuous Moorish palaces and the peaceful courtyard gardens of luxurious riad hideaways. Fes, the country’s spiritual heart, has an even more labyrinthine medina which feels like stepping back in time. Nearby imperial Meknes has some grand old architecture, and the beautiful blue town of Chefchaouen can be found perfectly set in the Rif Mountains to the north.
More serious topography divides the country in two, the most dramatic section of which, the snowcapped High Atlas, provides a haven for hikers or those seeking to unwind in a place where Berber culture has remained almost untouched for centuries. Follow passes up and over to sand coloured oasis towns, palm groves and kasbah fortresses at their sun baked southern edge, old staging posts for the great camel trains trading gold for salt across the Sahara Desert whose dunes spill over the southern border. A night out under the stars here is a real privilege.
Morocco is a fascinating place, a real ancient meeting point of cultures, continents, and people. From the centuries-old universities to the incredible systems of ancient irrigation that lead to oases of green in the brown desert with snowy mountains in the distance, the beauty of the country is second to the kind hospitality of the Moroccan people.
Our top Morocco example trips
I wholeheartedly recommend Jacada! They put together an amazing trip for my husband and I with only 3 weeks notice. Our coordinator listened to our wants/needs and asked questions to better understand who we were and what we would enjoy. Our vacation was wonderful and stress free! The hotels/riads/tents (!) they chose were unique and absolutely fantastic! Our guides were…
We traveled throughout Morocco in November of 2019 with the help of Jacada Travel. As this was our 25th Anniversary gift to ourselves, we wanted to leave behind some of the stresses of planning and trip and traveling in an unfamiliar environment, culture and language. Tess listened very carefully to the kind of experience we were looking for, and did…
Jacada does an amazing job! It is worth every penny. Our trip went perfect as planned to the last detail. A person was available the 24 hours for any issues or questions. We had a great , worry free vacation!
Amazing trip that was everything hoped for and more. Series of experiences that made the trip very rich in terms of learning and memories. Jacada again developed a trip that addressed our interests and then followed through with their outstanding service.
Planned a last minute 11 night trip to Morocco with Rebecca. Her and her team were absolutely fantastic. We gave them a tall order in asking for booking on such short notice (and then changing the dates mid-planning!) and we could not have been happier with the results. Highly recommended.
