Is the incredible country of Morocco at the top of your travel bucket list? It’s fair to say that everyone at Wild N Happy understands why!
From our very first visit to Morocco, we knew this special place had to be the first country we provided tours in outside of Ireland and the UK.
And that’s exactly what happened! As such, we’re perfectly placed to recommend the best places to visit in Morocco ahead of your trip.
If you have any questions about our tours in Morocco, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Feel the History and Vibrancy of Marrakech
Known as the Red City, Marrakech is one of Morocco’s most popular tourist destinations — and with good reason!
At the heart of the city is Djemaa el-Fna, a bustling square surrounded by food stalls, traditional Moroccan architecture, and street performers.
Such is its importance, Djemaa el-Fna is UNESCO-inscribed as a place of unique cultural exchange.
It’s also the perfect encapsulation of the sensory experiences that await in Marrakech.
The bold colors widen your eyes, the aroma of spices fills your nose, and the welcoming locals show you their cultural traditions.
Other must-visit sites for your itinerary include the Saadian Tombs, Bahia Palace, Majorelle Gardens, and Koutoubia Mosque.
Our 3-day Discover Marrakech Tour is the perfect way to explore the Red City.
Visit Erg Chigaga for a Magical Sahara Desert Experience
A trip into the Sahara Desert is the perfect way to disconnect from the distractions of modern life.
Erg Chigaga is a remote desert landscape with otherworldly waves of huge, wind-swept sand dunes. The area has luxury camping facilities, so you can stay overnight.
As such, you can enjoy dinner and breakfast in these peaceful, stunning surroundings, trek on a camel, enjoy local traditional music, and, of course, witness the unforgettable sight of a Sahara sunset and sunrise.
Head to the Coastal Gem of Essaouira
Located west of Marrakech on the Atlantic coast, Essaouira is known for its Portuguese-style architecture and its relaxed, bohemian vibe.
This charming, colorful port town has a vibrant blue-and-white medina surrounded by sand-colored ramparts and imposing stone gates.
There’s a fairytale quality to Essaouira, and this is perfectly demonstrated by its Arabic name, which means “little picture”.
This picturesque place is perfect for relaxing, unwinding, and strolling around. For a great view of the city itself, head to the Essaouira Citadel.
Essaouira is the final stop on our 8-Day Morocco Trip Package – The Wild South before returning to Marrakech.
Venture into the Atlas Mountains and Climb Mount Toubkal
If you like outdoor adventures, Morocco has a once-in-a-lifetime challenge waiting for you!
Mount Toubkal is part of the Atlas Mountains. Standing at 4,167 meters, it’s the highest peak in North Africa.
A multi-day trip into Toubkal National Park and up to the summit allows you to explore traditional Berber villages, see incredible mountain views, and create memories you’ll never forget.
If this sounds like your kind of adventure, check out our 7 Days Morocco Tour – Toubkal and Marrakech.
Soak in the Splendour of Ait Benhaddou
Sitting in the foothills on the High Atlas’ southern slopes, Ait Benhaddou is a beautiful fortified village with a magical ambiance.
Built around 1,000 years ago, this small town was a key point on the old trading route between Marrakech and the Sahara Desert.
Today, thanks to its unique architecture and outstanding photo opportunities, Ait Benhaddou is one of the most attractive and popular stops on tours of Morocco.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is so visually striking that it has acted as the backdrop for famous movie and TV productions, including Game of Thrones, Gladiator, and Lawrence of Arabia.
Ait Benhaddou is a key location on many of our tours, including the Marrakech Trip and Morocco’s Wild South 10-day Tour.
