Morocco is one of our oldest friends—the land, in fact, where the idea of a B&R expedition was born. We saw a foreign, exotic, stunning country beautifully suited to our penchant for active travel and knew we absolutely had to introduce B&R travellers to it. Despite its convenient proximity to Europe, we knew our travellers may only come once. With that in mind, we give you the best of Morocco: vibrant Marrakech, including a stay at the legendary hotel La Mamounia, Berber villages, stunning oases, fabulous food, a Kasbah hotel, the High Atlas Mountains and an absolutely unforgettable stay in the coastal city of Essaouira.

Look no further - B&R assembled a private trip for 18 of us from Prague to Vienna and they nailed it. Nice job.

Day 1

We set out from Marrakech for the High Atlas Mountains, where we get a real glimpse of daily mountain life as we ramble through the Natural Reserve of Tamsoult. The afternoon provides  some downtime at the exquisite Kasbah Bab Ourika hotel, where we’ll dine tonight.

Day 2

We head into the foothills of Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa, today to the remote Berber village Around before lunch on the terrace of our local guide’s guest house: Dar Ouassaggou. During  cocktails tonight our friend Wafa explains what it’s like to be a woman in a moderate Muslim nation.

Day 3

Off to the coast today and the port town Essaouira, where we’ll traverses paths used only by locals. Lunch today is a picnic, hidden in an almost forgotten bay, then it’s back to town where we  explore Essaouira’s 18th-century seafront ramparts. We’ll dine tonight at a famous local restaurant: Le Chalet de La Plage.

Day 4

Heading north of Essaouira, the rolling terrain takes us to the surfer’s village Moulay- Bouzerktoum, where we’ll enjoy a delicious lunch in a local café. Along the way camels await to take us on a 30 minute ride. We’ll then head back to Essaouira, where you can explore either the city or the beach before dinner by young local Chef Ahmed Handour.

Day 5

We return to Marrakech today and hike the cliffs of the Plateau du Kik overlooking the Plain of Marrakech and its olive groves. Houssine–our local guide, awaits us with a surprise picnic before a short walk and our return journey to the city to explore labyrinthine ancient Medina.

Day 6

Local guide Mohammed takes us on a tour today, with stops at the Museum of Art of Marrakech, Jemaa El Fna Square, and the amazing garden of Jacques Majorelle. Our final night dinner at the private Ryad Kniza, complete with music, is sure to provide an unforgettable ambiance.

Day 7

Our Moroccan walking adventure ends this morning after breakfast at the hotel. Your guides will be happy to help confirm onward travel; ask B&R about a post-trip to the fascinating royal city of Fes.

Kasbah Bab Ourika, Ourika Valley

With 360-degree panoramic views of the Ourika Valley and the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, the Bab Ourika receives warm sunlight all day, ending in spectacular sunsets. From its unique eyrie-like position, it offers a bird’s-eye view of the Atlas range, traditional Berber villages and the lush river valley below.

L’Heure Bleue, Essaouira

Perfectly located just inside the city gates, this former palace and now Relais & Châteaux property has been tastefully restored with nods to Portuguese, African and Oriental influences. The calm and peaceful interior is matched by a rooftop terrace, complete with pool and views across the port.

La Mamounia, Marrakech

Renovated by the French interior designer Jacques Garcia, La Mamounia offers everything you expect from the lap of luxury. The pool and spa are out of this world and the location unsurpassed. The leafy 18th-century park surrounding the property was created for a local prince, Mamoun, whose name inspired the name of the hotel
