Classic Morocco Itineraries

Morocco has so much to offer! When booking a trip to Morocco, it is important that you are able to experience this unique country to the fullest. These itineraries are samples of how to explore Morocco. Each itinerary was created to capture what a well-rounded trip to Morocco looks like.

There are a couple key components taken into account when creating these itineraries. First, it is important to note how long your stay will be. For example, the one week tour looks much more condensed than the others. This is because it must fit Morocco’s key attractions while also taking into account travel time. But regardless of how long you stay, there will never be a dull moment.

Morocco One Week Itinerary

If you are visiting Morocco for one week, then you should take into account travel time and its limitations. So you are not spending a vast majority of your time moving from one place to another, try exploring one region of Morocco.

You will still get to experience what Morocco has to offer while also allowing yourself time to immerse yourself in each location.The sample itinerary below is of mostly central Morocco. It offers historic landmarks, souks, and the natural scenery of the countryside.

Morocco Itinerary

Day 1-2: Arrive in Marrakech

After settling into your hotel, set out to see the top attractions in Marrakech like the Jemaa el-Fnaa, Majorelle Garden, and Bahia Palace.

Morocco Itinerary in One Week

Day 3-4: The High Atlas in Morocco

Leaving early from Marrakech on the third day, you will take a bus to the Grand Atlas Mountain. The trip takes about five in a half hours so the earlier you leave the better! A top attraction once there is the Ait Benhaddou which has been featured in numerous movies and shows throughout the years.

Morocco Itinerary One Week

Day 5-6: Marrakech to Casablanca

Most of these days will be spent traveling between locations but throughout these travels you can see the stunning natural beauty of Morocco. And you will have some time in Marrakesh to explore whatever you might have missed. You will arrive in Casablanca late on the 6th which means you will spend most of your time exploring Casablanca on day 7.

Morocco Itinerary

Day 7: Casablanca 

You will spent your last day exploring the romantic and bustling city of Casablanca. This seaport town has delicious food and music playing throughout. The top tourist attractions in Casablanca includes the Hassan II Mosque, Casablanca Cathedral, Place des Nations Unies, and its beaches.

Morocco Two Week Itinerary

Exploring Morocco in two weeks allows you plenty of time to enjoy each environment and attraction. The extra time will allow you to spend multiple days in each location. In order to utilize this, split up what you want to see between the two days. This will allow you to explore each spot in depth. It should be noted that the itinerary will set aside designated travel days.

A great thing about Morocco is its lovely sceneries. And when you are traveling between destinations, you can really see the vastness and beauty of the country’s geographical setting.

Morocco Itinerary

Day 1-2: Casablanca

Casablanca is a city known for its culture, food, and architecture. Once you get settled into your hotel, you can set out and explore the city. The first day is a good time to visit King Hassan II Mosque, arguably Casablanca’s most popular destination and the Old Medina. A guided tour of the mosque takes about 45 mins to 1 hour. Afterwards you can grab dinner and dessert in the medina.

On the second day, explore inner Casablanca. Most of your time here will be spent at the Place des Nations Unies which is renowned for its shops and restaurants. Other noteworthy attractions include Casablanca Cathedral and Mohamed V Square.

Morocco Itinerary Two Weeks

Day 3-4: Rabat

Being a little over an hour drive from Casablanca, Rabat is a great pit stop on the way to Fes. Being the capital of Morocco, Rabat has a lot to offer. And because everything is in close proximity to one another, you can tackle a lot there.

Top attractions in Rabat include Hassan Tower, Dar al-Makhzen, Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Kasbah of the Udayas, and the medieval ruins of Chellah.

Morocco Itinerary Two weeks

Day 5-6: Fes

Traveling from Rabat to Fes is relatively cheap and easy. There are multiple ways to get to Fes but train is the most practical. It takes a little more than two and a half hours. Once in Fes, you can explore this bustling and lively city. Fes has one of the most well known medinas in the area. There you can see the colorful leather tanneries in Fes el Bali (pictured above). The well-preserved Medieval Fes is a great destination for history buffs.

As a matter of fact, most of the city is shrouded with a fascinating historical past. Other noteworthy locations include, the Al-Attarine Madrasa, Dar Batha, the Merenid Tombs, and the Borj Nord. A popular activity in Fes is taking a cooking class where you get fresh ingredients from the medina.

Morocco Itinerary Erg Chebbi

Day 7-9: Erg Chebbi

There is no easy way to get to the Erg Chebbi in terms of time. From Fes, it takes close to 13 hours to get there. It is suggested that you take an overnight bus to the desert since most of your travel time will be spent sleeping. You would leave at night on day 6 and arrive mid-afternoon on day 7.

Once there, camping is highly suggested. Luxury camping is a popular activity while here. Other activities include, camel riding, hiking and swimming in pools made in the area.

Morocco Itinerary

Day 10-12: Dades Gorges and Ait Benhaddou

On the way back from the Erg Chebbi, it is best to head towards Marrakech that way you can stop by the Dades Gorges and Ait Benhaddou. From the dunes, it is about an 8 hour bus ride to the Dades Gorges.

Another overnight bus will help make the eight hours go by faster. You would leave late on the 9th and arrive in the Dades Gorges in the morning of the 10th. Once there you can explore the canyon by taking a walking tour.

You would spend the night in one of the villages in the Dades Gorges and leave to Ait Benhaddou on the 11th. It takes about two and a half hours to get to Ait Benhaddou. Just to give yourself some extra time to explore and break up the travel days, you would spend the night in Ait Benhaddou.

You can leave in the late afternoon on the 12th and arrive four and a half hours later in Marrakech. It will be pretty late when you arrive in Marrakech so you would retire to the hotel for the rest of the night.

Morocco Itinerary

Day 13-14: Marrakech

You will wake up already in Marrakech which gives you all of day 13 to explore the city. All the top attractions in Marrakech are relatively close to one another. You can grab a taxi to each destination. Top attractions here include the Jemaa el-Fnaa, Majorelle Garden, Bahia Palace, Marrakech Museum, and Cyber Park.

You will depart from Marrakech on day 14, which will conclude your trip to Morocco.

Best of Morocco - 13 days

Lhoucine was excellent, full of knowledge and so kind and willing to help us all. The experiences were wonderful with many high points.
The negatives were having to return to Marrakech for a night because two people joining in Casablanca were to have a city tour. Although it was in the trip notes, it seemed unnecessary to the rest of us, who could easily have transferred directly to Essaouira. The second negative was the awful riad in Essaouira! There was a nasty smell in the lobby, our room was cramped and dark with no air con (room 22). We couldn't open a window as it opened at waist height and looked into all the other rooms.

On the whole, we had a great time and the tour provided us with so many experiences. We were lucky enough to be with a great group of people and it was very jolly. Lhoucine gave us his phone number and we could contact him at any time. He was very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble and his manner gentle, calm and quiet but with a great sense of humour and fun. He also provided fantastic picnics on the picnic lunch days and he and our driver were so efficient in setting up and clearing away. An excellent guide!

Spain, Portugal & Morocco

I am a budget solo female traveler. I have traveled with COSMOS for about 20 years in the past, all over Europe, Switzerland, Turkey, etc. The best thing is that I never have to pay extra for single supplement when I room with someone. If Cosmos can not find a room mate for you, you end up having the whole room. Because of this feature, I was able to travel everywhere by my self with reasonable price. Cosmos always provides great value for the bucks. I would do it again. I highly recommend to you all. Read more

Adventure Morocco

Abdoul the guide was fantastic, he did an amazing job along with the driver.

My only comments would be to make small changes to the itinerary, in particular: stay at the first campsite 2 nights instead of changing, have done buggies as an optional activity in the Sahara, and maybe having 2 night in Agadir followed by an early departure to Essaouira the next morning?

But overall it was a great tour, very close to being as good as the Felucca Odyssey in Egypt.

Highlights of Morocco

Most people had heard of Casablanca but we wanted something else. Our trip took us to teeming cities, oases and high mountains. The hotels were a good standard but sometimes the water supply failed. But this was not home and things like this you take in your stride. Morocco has many beautiful sites and smells and we sampled many of them.
Reaching the rarefied mountain passes and tracks was exciting. The quiet and tranquility of the mountain streams and abandoned villages and the hospitality of the locals was inspiring. Mint tea and cake , with our group sitting cross legged on a carpeted floor, was a very memorable experience.

Khalid was brilliant. Never short of an amusing anecdote, always on the phone arranging matters ahead of our arrival, always anticipating interesting observations, he made the tour something to remember.

Morocco is a fascinating country and is deeply Muslem. Respect their customs and wear appropriate clothing. Don't photograph soldiers or police ever and when people say no to photographs, they mean it. If you want a photo of someone, ask first.

Just go there and spend a night or two in the desert under the stars.
