Your Itinerary

Itinerary - Summary

Our honeymoon trip to Morocco comprises of three nights in the old city of Marrakech, an overnight desert experience, and a couple of nights in the High Atlas Mountains including a selection of honeymoon experiences.

Morocco riad

Day 1 - Welcome to Marrakech

Arrive at Marrakech airport where your driver will meet you and take you straight to your riad. A mere 15 minute transfer and then a 5 minute stroll through the medina. There are lots of lovely riads in Marrakech and for this trip you stay in a romantic Riad Adore, right in the centre of the souks and an easy walk to everywhere. In the evening you will enjoy a candlelight dinner on the roof terrace.

Day 2 - Explore the souks

Enjoy everything Marrakech has to offer. Take an early morning visit to the Majorelle gardens before it gets too hot and all the bus loads of tourists arrive. Spend afternoons visiting the various mosques and historical sites. Visit the main square at night where you can wander among the snake charmers, storytellers and henna tattooists before sitting atop a rooftop bar with a chilled glass of wine watching the action unfold beneath you. In the evening you will indulge yourself with a traditional Moroccan exfoliation and massage in a local hammam.

Morocco desert

Day 3 - Hot Air Balloon

Today is an early start but with the rewards of beautiful views. During your hot air balloon flight you will enjoy peaceful birds eye glimpses of the Berber villages, distant mountains, farms, and wildlife. After landing, there is a cadial tent reception for a typical Berber breakfast prepared by the women of the douar (Village) of Oulad El Garn

Day 4 - Agafay Desert Experience:

Following your stay in Marrakech you head for the rendezvous with your driver and the short trip to Scarabeo Camp, luxury “glamping” in the Agafay Desert. Here you stay in a honeymoon tent and enjoy being away from it all. We suggest you arrive for lunch which can be organised either at the camp or in a local village. In the afternoon go on a camel ride in the rough, moon-like scenery. The evening is a great opportunity for shooting star spotting in the clear skies.

Day 5 - Into the Atlas

From the Agafay desert head up into the Atlas Mountains. A spectacular place to stay is Kasbah Bab Ourika perched on its own summit overlooking the Ourika valley. A great base for some mountain walks, visits to the markets in the surrounding villages and just soaking up the views. You are also only an hour away from the airport so finishing here makes for a relaxing journey home.

Day 6 - Relax

In addition to its romantic location, Bab Ourika offers a number of special experiences and benefits for couples on their honeymoon, including private dining on the terrace, couple massages and cooking lessons, and the chance to star-gaze.

Day 7 - Home

From the Atlas Mountains it is just an hour or so back to Marrakech airport so hopefully a lazy start before our driver comes to pick you up.

The start and finish for most Morocco Holidays. Highlights are the souks in the old Medina, the main square in the evening, the Majorelle gardens and the historical sites. You should definitely stay in a Marrakech Riad for at least a few nights but also some beautiful villas and hotels on the edge of town in rural Marrakech. Click for suggested riads More
Essaouira is our favourite at all times of year. Probably the prettiest coastal town in Morocco and loads to see and do. Great camel trekking, horse-riding, surfing kite/windsurfing, cooking lessons, lovely medina (more relaxing shopping than Marrakech). Also great places to stay in town and in the village click below for suggestions More
High Atlas Mountains
Incredibly close to Marrakech but a world apart, the Atlas mountains are an essential visit. Go for a day trip (trekking or driving tour), or stay in one of the beautiful kasbahs perched on a hilltop to relax and soak up the views More
Sahara Desert
The massive dunes of the Sahara should be on anyone's "bucket list" and it is easy to do a trip into the desert from Marrakech, Fes or the coast with a bit of planning More
Ait Ben Haddou
One of the most famous sights in Morocco, Ait Ben Haddou is a rock fortress on the south side of the Atlas. Always a good stopping point on our desert tours and a must for the photo album More
The Gorges
The Todra and Dades Gorges maybe a little over-hyped but certainly worth a stop on the way to Mezourga - part of our Desert & Gorges Tour More
A pretty walled town within easy reach of Agadir (so a lot of day trippers from the package hotels) but also a great place for a night's stop between the desert and the coast More
Having been re-built after and earthquake 50 years ago it doesn't have as much charm as other Moroccan cities but the beach and climate are lovely More
Oualidia Lagoon
A small seaside town built up around a pretty estuary and lagoon. Home to La Sultana, the best coastal hotel in Morocco and can easily be combined with a visit to Marrakech and Essaouira More
Less well known as a tourist destination but with recently introduced direct flights from the UK it is an interesting city where you can see the modern Morocco alongside the rivermouth Kasbah and the medina More
The biggest city in Morocco and an industrial sprawl. We generally advise not stopping there and even if flying to Casablanca head North to Fes/Rabat or south to Marrakech/Essaouira. If you are passing through it is worth visiting the spectacular seafront mosque.
Fes makes for a fabulous long weekend or as part of our "Grand Tour". The highlight is the medina which most people prefer to Marrakech, partly as it is on a hill you are much more aware of the geography. Also, do a day trip to the Roman ruins at Volubilis and ask about a night or two in the village of Bhalil More
The second good dune area of Morocco is Erg Chebbi by Merzouga - easier to get to (no 4x4 needed) and whilst the dunes are stunning we prefer Erg Cheggaga for a proper desert experience. More
