Northern Morocco is an off-the-beaten-path destination, where beautifully diverse cultures come together in poetic harmony. Walled, coastal towns evoke an atmosphere that resembles Greece and other popularly luxurious locales. Famous port cities like Tangier reflect centuries of change, and mazy hillside towns like Chefchaouen appear as if they have never changed. For over a millennia, the region’s cultures have built upon each other, creating a travel destination where you can indulge in an incredible variety of experiences in a relatively small area. It is also a destination where every turn can feel like a highlight.
To venture off the beaten path in Morocco, it is best to travel north from Fes or south from Marrakesh. Of course, you can also partake in a Saharan expedition, so you do have many possibilities with a handcrafted tour. This one week in Morocco will be crafted around Northern Morocco’s eternal art and poetry and have a focus on authentic experiences in culturally diverse destinations. To begin your adventure, you will fly in and out of Fes, which is the region’s primary airport. Transfers between destinations will be private and flexible with specialized local guides that lead the way.
Fes is a large tourist hub. After landing, you will travel to Meknes, which is the lesser-known of Morocco’s imperial cities. It is also the country’s artisanal hub, and most of what you may consider Moroccan art and design is actually Meknes art and design. Over two days, you will enjoy a private artisanal workshop, visit the Roman ruins of Volubilis, and have two evenings in an incredibly authentic and hassle-free historic center. You will then travel north to enter the hills for a day of blue-hued delight in Chefchaouen, which is perhaps the country’s most beautiful and idyllic destination.
Afterward, you will venture to the coastal city of Tetouan, which is a Spanish city of Moorish design in Morocco. While that combination seems bizarre, the harmonious result is quite breathtaking. On day five, you will witness Tangier before continuing to the white-walled coastal haven of Asilah. Then, after five days of exploring off-the-beaten-path Moroccan treasures, you will be ready for Fes, the world’s largest walled city. Again, an expert guide will lead you to local places and away from the touristic souk center, so you can experience how Fes really ticks.
