A surprisingly mountainous and green country, Morocco is just a four hour flight from the UK. It encompasses the exotic way of life of a land you would believe is far more distant from home. One of the best ways to experience the natural beauty of this country is by taking a tour with a local guide for the day; Morocco also offers a wide range of activities including horse riding and mountain biking.
Best Time to Visit
The best weather starts in May and this can continue right through until Early November.
Settled around the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech is one of the most popular resorts in Morocco. Agadir and Essaouira are also favourites – both offering stunning coastal properties and incredible stretches of beach.
Morocco’s rich cultural heritage has heavily influenced it’s cuisine over the years. Berber in particular has had an influence, with Tajine and couscous dishes originating from Berber times. The invasion by Arabs introduced new dishes including pastas, breads and a heavy infusion of exotic spices. Now, cuisine is based around staple foods including chicken, lamb, couscous, tomatoes, garlic, eggs and peppers.
History and Culture
Morocco’s cultural heritage is diverse; influences from this heritage have made it the country that it is today. Berber, Bedouin Arab, Moor and Eastern Arab periods of time have created a vibrant and exotic country and the country’s architecture and colourings are evidence of this.
