Morocco is one of the most popular destinations in Africa and its four royal cities, Fez, Meknes, Marrakech and Rabat, each have an irresistible charm. It is a country of captivating landscapes and cities with an extraordinary cultural heritage, as well as exceptional seaside destinations on the Atlantic side. Set back from the seaside resorts, Morocco’s mountainous hinterland is characterised by high, barren plateaus and green valleys overlooked by majestic Berber kasbahs that look like fortresses.
This port city on the Atlantic coast is green and leafy, despite its almost desert-like climate. The huge beach of Agadir, which is 8 kilometres long and up to 100 metres wide in places, is a popular surfing destination and has a promenade full of cafés and shops. The fascinating hinterland’s unforgettable natural features, such as the lemon trees of the Souss valley, the mountains of the Anti-Atlas or the oases of the Sahara are just waiting to be explored!
Agadir is a modern city – the only parts that remain untouched are the remains of a 15th century Kasbah perched on its hill at an altitude of 236 metres and the fishing port. In 2009, the town was transformed with a new 7-kilometre long promenade that separates its hotels from its fine sandy beach. Here, you’ll find the perfect conditions for beach activities and relaxation. Distance from the airport: 26 km.
Taghazout is one of Morocco’s most popular destinations. About 22 kilometres from the centre of Agadir, this charming little fishing port has become world famous for its surf spots and golden sandy beaches. Taghazout’s bay is a quant, picturesque landscape between the land and ocean. There’s plenty to discover in this multicultural atmosphere where you won’t be short of activities! Distance from the airport: 45 km.

Imouzzer is a small village nestled in the mountains about 62 kilometres north of Agadir. The drive will take you to a gorge where you can admire the landscape dotted with palm groves, olive groves and pink nerium flowers. A short walk from Imouzzer will take you to the waterfall that Moroccans call the ‘Bridal Veil’. A visit to the souks is also available on Thursdays.
In an all-terrain vehicle, you will cross the Souss plain, which is a very important agricultural region. You will follow impressive tracks along the edge of the Anti-Atlas mountain range, passing the Youssef Ibn Tachfine dam which overlooks a large lake. The tour will continue towards Massa, a Berber village located on the Atlantic coast and crossed by the Oued Massa, a national reserve protected since 1991. Next, you will drive along the coast to the fishing village of Tifnit, before joining a route used in the Paris-Dakar rally, where you will experience the thrill of driving these sandy seafront tracks!
Marrakech is Morocco’s second Imperial City and has a population of around one million. The country itself takes its name from Marrakech and the city is a marvellous testimony to Morocco’s prestigious past. This tour includes a visit to the Majorelle Gardens, Bahia Palace, and Koutoubia. This is followed by a walk through the famous souks, a labyrinth of shopping streets. You will be amazed by the Jemaa el Fna square in the heart of the city, where you can watch snake charmers, fortune tellers, acrobats and other artists.
This former pirate's cove, once known as Mogador, is one of the most attractive Moroccan cities on the Atlantic coast. Founded by the Portuguese and designed by a pupil of the French military architect Vauban, Essaouira is reminiscent of Saint Malo in Brittany. Its picturesque fishing port, medina and souks will spark your curiosity. The city is also famous for its cabinet makers, who will be happy to show you their age-old method of woodworking.
This trip will take you into the heart of the fertile Souss plain, the hinterland of Agadir and the orchard and vegetable garden of southern Morocco. After an hour and a half of driving, you will arrive in Tiout, a picturesque Berber village where you will be offered a donkey ride through the palm grove (not included in the price). After a traditional lunch in Tiout, you will continue to Taroudant, which is one of the oldest cities in Morocco and the capital of the Souss region. It is often referred to as Little Marrakech because of the ancient ramparts, partly dating from the 14th century, which surround it. A walk through the old town with its narrow streets and souks will give you the impression of being back in the Morocco of the past.
