Morocco

Morocco has been possibly one of my favourite countries to photograph. If you have the possibility to visit a few places, or even do a road trip like we did, you will enjoy the contrast between cities, through stunning landscapes. We visited: Tanger, Chefchaouen – well known as the blue pearl, Fez, Sahara Desert and Marrakech.

Read on to find about our 10 days in Morocco tour. Where to stay, see & do, a Fez to Marrakech desert tour, the Morocco travel map and much more.

Stay

↠ Chefchaouen: We also enjoyed our stay in this beautiful Riad

↠ Fez: We stayed at this stunning Riad – awesome building, great food and super friendly staff.

↠ Sahara Desert: Sahara desert day tours are an excellent option if you want to do a tour in the desert (and so many amazing places you’ll discover on the way there).

↠ Marrakech: We really enjoyed Riad Origenes in Marrakech – good to know: they serve alcohol 😉

Chefchaouen – as well known as the “Blue Pearl” due to the different shades of blue that invade the whole city

About a third of our 10 days in Morocco tour was the trip to Sahara. We went on a private Fez to Marrakech desert tour with Desert Day Tours
