Overview
The highlights of this sensational round trip through the land of 1001 Nights are the four imperial cities. Likewise, the adventure days in the area of Erg Chebbi, the ride with dromedary in the sunset and the night in the Berber tent. UNESCO World Heritage Medina of Marrakech, the Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, Kasbah Taourirt, Kasbah Amridil, Volubilis, Meknes, Medina of Fes u. Rabat, El-Jadida, Essaouira. Southern Morocco is dominated by the imposing foothills of the High Atlas. Rugged canyons and blooming oases create fascinating color contrasts. The reddish-brown loam-built Berber villages complete the landscape picture. We follow the legendary caravan routes and feel in the dreamy riads, as Seherezade once did in the fairy tale of 1001 Nights. From the desert to the Atlantic. Port cities and world-famous seaside resorts such as El-Jadida and Essaouira offer a welcome change and the wild and romantic Atlantic coast offers spectacular photo opportunities.
