Morocco is one of Africa’s favourite eastern destinations. Its four magical royal cities are irresistibly fascinating. In addition to its varied landscapes and its cities with their rich cultural heritage, this enchanting country offers exceptional swimming on the Atlantic coast. Behind its seaside resorts stretches a mountainous interior with high, bare plateaux and astonishingly green river valleys, dominated by the powerful Berber Kasbahs like fortified castles.
This harbour town looking out to the Atlantic is always lush and green, despite an almost desert-like climate. Its immense 8 km long beach, up to 100 m wide, is bordered by a fashionable promenade with several cafés and boutiques.
Agadir is also renowned for its surfing. Some fascinating excursions inland are available to the Sous valley of lemon trees in the Anti-Atlas Mountains, or to the oases of the Sahara.
Approx. 26 km from Agadir airport, Al Massira. Agadir is a modern city where only traces of the 15th-century Kasbah overlooking the town from the top of a 236 m hill, and the fishing port, are reminders of its history. Since 2009, the town has had a new promenade separating the hotels from the fine sand beach that extends over 7 km, where visitors can bathe and relax.
Imouzzer is a little village nestling in the mountains approx. 62 km to the north of Agadir. The journey through a canyon allows us to admire a landscape scattered with pink laurel trees and dotted with palm and olive groves. A short walk at Imouzzer will take us to the waterfall that the Moroccans call the ‘Bride’s Wedding Veil’. Visit to the souks on Thursdays.
We will travel in a four-wheel drive vehicle across the Souss plain, a very important region because of its agricultural production. Impressive tracks will take us round the edge of the Anti-Atlas, past the Youssef Ben Tachefine dam that overlooks a large lake. Continue towards Massa, a Berber village situated on the Atlantic coast through which the ‘Oued Massa’ passes in a national park protected since 1991. After travelling along the coast, we will reach Tifnit, a fishing village. We follow the itinerary of the Paris-Dakar rally: what a wonderful experience it is to drive along sand tracks at the sea’s edge!
Marrakech, the second imperial city of about 1,000,000 inhabitants. The most attractive city in Morocco that gave its name to the country as a whole provides a magnificent testimony to its prestigious past. Visit the Majorelle gardens, the Bahia Palace, the Ben Youssef Koranic School and the Koutoubia. Walk in the famous souks through a maze of commercial streets. Even more amazing is the Jemaa el Fna square in the heart of the city. There you will see snake charmers, fortune tellers, acrobats and other artists.
This old privateers’ port once known as ‘Mogador’ is one of the most attractive Moroccan towns on the Atlantic coast. Established by the Portuguese and designed by a pupil of Vauban, Essaouirait reminds visitors a little of St Malo in Brittany. The charming fishing village, medina and souks will pique your curiosity. The town’s renowned cabinet makers will reveal their ancient method of working with wood.
Excursion inland from Agadir to the fertile plain of Souss, a real vegetable garden and orchard in the south of Morocco. After a journey of 1 hour 30 min, you will arrive in Tiout, a small and charming Berber village. Donkey ride through a palm tree grove (not included). After a quintessential lunch in Tiout, we will continue towards Taroudant, the capital of Souss and one of the most ancient cities of Morocco. Old ramparts partially dating from the 14th century surround Taroudant, often known as ‘Little Marrakech’. A walk through the old town with its narrow streets and souks is like seeing the rebirth of the Morocco of old.
The excursions on offer, as well as their prices and times, may vary depending on the location of the hotel. Excursion prices are provided for information purposes only and may be subject to change. For more information and to book, please contact your local LuxairTours guide.
Ramadan, the Muslim period of fasting, is fixed between 16th May and 14th June. During this period, Muslims eat and drink nothing between sunrise and sunset. Consequently, some restaurants in the hotels and discos may remain closed and the entertainmentsainment programme may be limited.
Owing to the coral reefs, you are recommended to wear plastic shoes when swimming. Direct access to the sea may be limited to a restricted zone and can also be made by a walkway.
In all the hotels, proper attire is required for dinner (long trousers for gentlemen).
