Top Things To Do In Morocco

For culture enthusiasts and adventurous travelers, Morocco never seems to disappoint. Morocco offers a wide variety of travel experiences within the borders of this country that is roughly equivalent to the size of California. The variety of things to do is so big, you may find yourself overwhelmed with choices and it would be easier to just let one of these Morocco Travel Packages choose what to do for you. While we know there are far more things to see and do than just what is mentioned here, these are some of the top things to see while in this splendid and diverse nation.

 

Wander Through Chefchaouen

Chefchaouen

One of the most instagrammable spots in Morocco is undoubtedly the blue town of Chefchaouen. Founded by exiles in the 15th century, footpaths that once catered to refugees now usher tourists through a labyrinth of indigo and cobalt.

 

Camel Trek Through Erg Chebbi

If you’re looking to escape the crowds of Chefchaouen, Fes el-Bali and the crowded markets, hop on a camel and head for the sandy desert of Erg Chebbi.

 

See The Tree Goats

In the Southern Atlantic region of Morocco is the only place you’ll find the argan tree. This tree is so highly coveted by the indigenous Berber people that the nut oil it provides is called ‘Berber Gold.” The nuts are also a favorite of goats, which find their ways into the trees to feast on them.

 

Get Lost In Fes el-Bali

UNESCO World Heritage Site and possibly the “world’s most active medieval city,” the maze of thousands of little alleyways is the perfect place to take an afternoon to get lost in.

 

Admire Hassan II Mosque

Not only is the size of the Hassan II Mosque impressive, but the location is hard to beat as well! The mosque covers almost a million square feet and holds up to 25,000 people while having roughly ⅔ of the structure over the ocean. The most pronounced feature is the large minaret with its beacon that shines toward Mecca.

 

Shop In Marrakesh

It would be a shame to visit Morocco and not do some bargain shopping and haggling at any of the local markets!

 

Trek High Atlas Mountain

A multi-day hike which can be done my amateurs or enthusiast alike, be sure not to miss a visit to one of the indigenous Berber tribes on your way to the summit!

 

Visit Cascades d’Ouzoud Waterfalls

It’s a wonder to behold this multi-tiered waterfall flowing through the bright red clays of the typically hot and arid environment.

 

Get Pampered At A Hammam

What better way to top off a stay in Morocco with some spa time at a Hammam, or Turkish bath. The hot steam bath followed by a massage is a great way to unwind after a day of exploring the sites.
