Explore the best of MoroccoCasablanca, Morocco
With its ancient cities, arid deserts and mountains steeped in history, Morocco is a haven for the intrepid traveller. And on Byroad Travel’s 17-day Moroccan Mosaic tour you’ll see all its greatest hits. Get lost in the maze of 9,500 streets and alleys in the world’s largest medina in Fez and sample plump olives at the Djemaa el-Fna market in Marrakech.
Leave the well-trodden path behind and delve into towns like Salé, which once harboured Berber Muslim pirates; Chefchaouen, an otherworldly city awash in blue; and Tétouan, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed town at the foothills of the Rif Mountains near the Mediterranean Sea. In the evenings, ride by camel across Saharan dunes or simply look to the star-studded sky before snuggling up in a boutique kasbah with the sweet scent of mint tea to lull you to sleep.
