Morocco

A land of cultural and scenic diversity

Scenically, Morocco is incredibly diverse.  Attractive fishing villages on the Atlantic coast, sweeping sand dunes in the Sahara, spectacular snow capped Atlas Mountains, bustling souks and medinas and rural berber villages clinging to mountain slopes.  Morocco is suitable for long weekends, family adventures, active holidays and honeymoons.  Accommodation varies from luxury hotels, intimate riads, desert camps and luxury villas.
