Best places to visit in Morocco

Going on holiday in Morocco is always a lovely surprise. Between the kasbahs, the old medinas, the palm groves and the deserts, it will really blow you away, with good reason! However, too many tourists choose to stay at a resortand leave themselves little opportunity to truly discover the country and its inhabitants.

The Evaneos Travel community will help you to put together your trip and fully immerse you in the Moroccan culture. Just a click away, hundreds of opinions are waiting for you and they will be very useful when it comes to building your itinerary.

A trip to Morocco is definitely a chance to ride a mehari camel in the desert over the pink dunes of Erg Chebbi near Merzouga, through the depths of the Drâa Valley, or on the burning trails of Erg Chegaga. The Middle Atlas Mountains is the recommended region for hiking through surreal landscapes that are worthy of the thousand and one nights, with clay houses perched on the uneven and colourful mountains in the Dadès Gorge and the Todgha Gorge.

For those who especially wish to visit the cities, there is no lack of opportunities. Rabat, the capital, and Casablanca are very Westernised. On the other hand, losing yourself in the alleys of the Medina of Fez or in the markets in Marrakesh is an unforgettable experience and a feast for the senses.

Finally, charming seaside resorts like Essaouira welcome holidaymakers who want to go swimming with open arms and low costs.

Morocco is a pure jewel for those who invest a little time and some research into her. It's up to you!
