Travellers have long loved Marrakech and the mountains to the south, but Northern Morocco is also home to a diverse array of landscapes including historical ruins, bustling cities (take a bow ancient Tangier), charming local villages, the rolling Rif Mountains and now even a luxurious beach destination. Your first port (quite literally) of call - unless travelling north from Fez - will most likely be historic Tangier, for Europeans the gateway to Africa and somewhere that has, according to Mark Twain, 'been mentioned in history for three thousand years.' Sit sipping mint tea in cafes once frequented by Henri Matisse and Jack Kerouac,
dine in French bistros lining Sidi Kacem beach and explore the labyrinthine medina where all alleys lead - eventually - to the Petit Socco square. Then to the south sits the blue-washed mountain city of Chefchaouen, one of the most photogenic places in Morocco (which is saying something), and the staging post for hiking in the nearby Talassemtane National Park. Next, swing back north to Tetouan, a UNESCO World Heritage city with its distinctly Andalusian flavour, and back to Tangier via Tamuda Bay, a budding luxury hangout, or keep heading south to majestic Fez. Either way, Northern Morocco & Tangier holidays are a perfect way to explore a part of the country that many miss.

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.
