One Week in Morocco

So excited!!  We are leaving for Morocco in just a couple of days and we will be taking a tour to the Sahara Desert leaving from Fes.  Check out the itinerary of our trip!  Sounds pretty cool, right?

When you plan on visiting Morocco in Africa, what does it make you think of?  I always have to remind myself that Morocco is part of Africa – it seems more Middle Eastern to me.

Our itinerary is to take the ferry from Tarifa to Tangier, then bus to Chefchaouen.  We spend two nights in the blue city before taking a bus to Fes.  Just one night before we are picked up and whisked off to Merzouga, the gateway to the Sahara!  We make a few stops along the way at an oasis, to feed the Barbary apes in the Atlas Mountains and for lunch.

Our berber guides take us out into the desert by camel where we can watch the sunset over the dunes.  Dinner and a campfire before sleeping in nomad tents.  The next morning we wake early to see the sunrise.  We then hop back on our camels to ride into town for breakfast and showers.

Our driver takes us back to our riad in Fez where we will stay for two nights to explore the Medina.  Eventually we will take the train back to Tanger ready for our evening ferry back to Tarifa.

Phew!  Sounds busy and it will be but I’m also pretty sure it will be awesome!

I think we’re covering a number of the top things to do in Morocco in a short amount of time.  We’ll let you know how we feel about this itinerary when we get back to Spain but I just couldn’t resist.  We are so close to Morocco it seemed silly not to take the time to visit Morocco for a few days at least.

Welcome! I love to spend time planning travel and finding new adventures in cool destinations! Together with my husband, we've managed to spend 5 years finding adventures around the world without quitting our full-time teaching jobs in Canada. We have a not-so-strict low budget, we're willing to splurge on basic comfort and amazing experiences while cutting costs wherever we can.
