For a newly married couple who want to celebrate their post-nuptial bliss with an exotic escape not too far from home, Morocco is a great pick. Whether you opt for city or sea, mountains or deserts (or a combination of it all), Morocco honeymoons are sure to be filled with oodles of fun and reams of romance. Begin your adventure in the country’s superstar city, Marrakech, where you can enjoy a guided tour of all the top off-the-beaten-track spots - from locally loved restaurants to sensational souqs. From Marrakech, you can visit the glorious Atlas Mountains for walking and dramatic views savoured over cups of mint tea.
Then escape to the windswept coast of Essaouira for - you guessed it - wind- or kite-surfing, or to simply slow down to the sultry slow seaside lifestyle as you watch the day’s catch being brought into the harbour and traditional blue boats bobbing. Head north to the Imperial cities of Fez, Rabat and Meknes to enjoy more of this country’s captivating culture and fill your suitcases with treasures after haggling to your heart's content in their many medieval souqs.

Overall, I’d give the trip a 5+ out of 5. Very well planned and executed, even with last minute changes to my husband’s travel. Thanks so much for one of our favorite trips thus far! We look forward to working with you again.
What can you expect on Morocco honeymoons that you won't find anywhere else?
Morocco is an exotic honeymoon destination only a stone’s throw away from the UK. Its perfect blend of warm weather (autumn and spring are ideal seasons to travel in Morocco), stylish hotels and riads and a plethora of cultural and action-filled activities make this destination a sure winner for a memorable honeymoon. As an added bonus, the short flights can be very affordable too ensuring that your honeymoon budget can be put to even better use on the ground, upgrading your hotels, indulging in delicious meals and packing the trip with extraordinary experiences.
Distinguished by its Berber and Arab influences, Morocco has a fascinating and alluring culture and you'll feel as if you've travelled through time as you weave through Marrakech's colourful souqs. Snake charmers, fire eaters, and mesmerised crowds of onlookers are a few of the spectacles you're likely to witness while exploring magical and wildly romantic Marrakech.
Honeymooners in search of some peace and tranquillity should escape the bustle of the city and head out to a luxurious kasbah in the Atlas Mountains. Treks can be arranged to suit all abilities, whether it's a ramble in the foothills through fragrant forests of pine and traditional Berber villages, or a more challenging trek to the ascent of Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa. There's a wonderful element of ethnic immersion on these expeditions as you witness unspoiled traditional Berber culture.
For the ultimate romantic experience, travel out to the desert and settle in to a private Bedouin camp for the night - the ultimate glamping experience. Spend a night in the distant dunes under clear starlit skies, enjoying delicious berber cuisine and the complete silence of the desert for the evening. This really ticks all the boxes when it comes to a 'trip-of-a-lifetime' experience.
Adventurous types can enjoy the thrills of kite surfing. Essaouira is the perfect place to learn this fun-filled sport, due to the consistently powerful wind across the expansive beach.
