MOROCCO'S HIGHLIGHTS

MOROCCO'S HIGHLIGHTS

Marrakesh

Marrakesh blends the ancient and the modern with its mysterious traditions like snake charmers and contemporary restaurants. Within the Red City lies the enchanting Jemaa el Fna, the largest square on the African continent and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Wander into the maze of the souks where artisans sell everything from handworked jewelry and leather to high-quality rugs. Visit architectural highlights including the El Badhi Palace and Saadian Tombs, both from the Saadi dynasty era in the 16th and 17th centuries. The 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque is still the largest mosque in Marrakesh and a beautiful example of Almohad dynasty architecture. Get to know the warm spices of northern Africa with a private cooking class. Enjoy a traditional hammam treatment, where you will be steamed, exfoliated, and massaged to your heart’s content.

Atlas Mountains

Outside of Marrakesh, travelers will find the magnificent High Atlas Mountains, which are home to Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in Morocco and all of northern Africa. Take advantage of this beautiful setting by mountain biking through the stunning Ouirgane Valley or hiking through the Valley of Asni to a small Berber village tucked away in the mountainside. The Berber people are native to northern Africa and have been merchants and nomads in the area since the beginning of recorded history. Today, many Berbers still carry on age-old traditions in the villages of the High Atlas mountains, where they speak indigenous languages in addition to Arabic.

Skoura Valley

Situated between the High Atlas Mountains and the brutal Sahara, the lush oasis of the Skoura Valley is known as the gateway to the desert. The area features a number of other beautiful valleys to explore, including Almond Valley, which, thanks to a traditional irrigation system, is green with pomegranate, olive, and almond trees, as well as the dramatic Valley of the Roses, which features spectacular cliffs, canyons, and wide-open valleys carved by rivers. During your time at this magical oasis, stay at the singular Dar Ahlam, a 200-year-old rammed earth kasbah. Every detail is carefully planned at Dar Ahlam, including their unique dinner services. You will never dine in the same location twice, and the sense of surprise and discovery makes each carefully designed meal at Dar Ahlam a truly memorable and unique culinary experience.

Fes

Founded in the 9th century, Fes will transport visitors back in time to a traditional Moroccan world of ancient customs and spirituality. This age-old city reached its height in the 13th and 14th centuries when it replaced Rabat as the kingdom’s capital for some time. The urban fabric and the principal monuments in the medina – palaces, residences, mosques, and fountains - date from this period. The Fes Medina is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the world’s largest car-free urban area. Within the medina, travelers will find the world’s oldest university, Al-Qarawiyyin, founded by a woman in 859 AD. Other historic sites in the medina include the bustling bazaar with its famous leather tanneries, the intricate Bou Inania Madrasa, or Islamic school, the Foundouk Nejjarine, a woodworking museum, and the venerated shrine of the founder of Fes, Moulay Idris II. The city also has an intriguing mellah, a walled Jewish Quarter, which dates from the 15th century and was the first to exist in Morocco.

Sahara Desert

Enjoy an intimate introduction to the Sahara Desert at a private luxury desert camp staffed with a chef and your own personal guides. To avoid lengthy drives, Blue Parallel will coordinate private air to transport you to your desert getaway. Arrive in the desert later in the day to avoid the high heat, and then explore the golden sand dunes on camelback before arriving at your luxury camp. After settling into your beautifully furnished tent, dine on a traditional Moroccan meal under the stars. Enjoy the tranquility of the desert at night, with no one to interrupt the gentle whisper of the wind on the dunes as you gaze at the Milky Way in the clear skies.

Casablanca

Although Casablanca is not the true capital of Morocco, it is undoubtedly the economic capital of the country. This famous city also has a fascinating mix of traditional Moroccan architecture as well as colonial structures left over from the country's time split between French and Spanish control in the early 20th century. A famous modern landmark of note is the Hassan II Mosque, which is dramatically situated at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. This massive mosque and its grounds can hold over 100,000 worshippers!
