Region Guide

From the hustle and bustle of Marrakech to the long stretching landscapes of the Atlas Mountains, Morocco is a country of varied terrain and spaces.

Our region guide will help with your initial planning, but our team of Africa specialists, Matt and Felix, are there to support your your trip to Morocco.

Morocco Regions

Atlas Mountains

The Atlas Mountains span from the Atlantic coast through to Algeria and Tunisia, with the High Atlas forming the highest and most rugged section of the mountain range. Its jagged peaks act as a weather barrier between the mild, Mediterranean climate to the north and the encroaching Sahara to the south, making it a popular escape from the sizzling heat of Morocco’s cities.

Atlast Mountains - Morocco


Essaouira is at once familiar and exotic with its fortified walls, fishing harbour and seagulls soaring over the town. At first it seems as though this could be a town in Brittany, France.


From the moment you arrive in Marrakesh, predictability and all sense of direction is lost. Start your day at action-packed Djemaa el-Fna and head north into Marrakesh’s maze of souks, where Berber tribes once traded slaves, gold, ivory and leather.


Ourika Valley

Away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, where temperatures are cooler and valleys bloom, sits the beautiful Ourika Valley. Only a 45 minute drive from Marrakech, there is no better place to escape to for a couple of days to unwind from the frenzy of the souks.
