The Ultimate Morocco Bucket List – Quality Villas

the ultimate morocco bucket list

For those seeking
adventure, Morocco is a destination which fits perfectly. This colourful
country is a historical treasure which bursts with life and should be at the
top of any avid travellers list. The whole atmosphere throughout Morocco is
intense, chaotic and fragrant, and it is a sensory overload that brings
travellers back time and time again. If you are travelling to this part of the
world for the first time, we created this exciting bucket list of things we
think you should see and do whilst holidaying to this truly amazing part of the
world when staying in one of our luxury
villas in Morocco

Explore Marrakesh

For first timers, Marrakesh can be a bewildering experience; however, this is due to the hectic
atmosphere which is noticed first. This historic location does, however,
attract a fashionable crowd and boasts a great range of traditional shops and
market stalls. For those who aren’t looking to shop, you will still be
captivated by the colour, diversity and vibrancy surrounding the souks. You
could spend the whole day getting wonderfully lost in the maze of stalls.

Head into the
Sahara Desert

Whether you are
exploring this region by camel or 4×4, this is one sight which is not worth
missing out on. There is something extremely enchanting about riding a camel
through the dunes. The Sahara Desert is the world’s largest hot desert
stretching 9.4 million square kilometres. The dunes are a sea of sand and
whilst riding a camel into the sun, with the surreal-ness of this activity, it
is an experience we are sure you won’t forget.   

The Sahara can
also be the best place to stargaze in the world, as you are so far from
civilisation and the sky is so open and clear. There are a number of guides
which can be found throughout Marrakesh who can assist you with these

Trek through the
Atlas Mountains

For avid walkers
or keen adventures, trekking through the Atlas Mountains is an activity which
is not to be missed. These wild mountains spread across a northern stretch of
Africa, extending about 1,500 miles through Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. Take a
guided tour through scenic mountains and see beautiful peaks, green valleys and
winding rivers.

Relax in Agadir

Agadir is a city
which lies along Morocco’s south Atlantic coast and is considered Morocco’s top
seaside resort. As it is blessed with around 10 kilometres of sandy beaches and
has an array of cafes, bars and restaurants, it can serve as the perfect base
for your trip to this region. This city is laid out as a grid of downtown
streets, but its main feature is its beachfront promenade, where you will see a
shiny white marina and clear water.

Visit a tannery

One of the best
ways to witness one of Morocco’s historic industries is by visiting a tannery. The
tanneries are where animal hide is stripped, dyed in colourful bins and sewed
into a variety of products. Tour guides will walk you through the dying
process, as it’s been done for over a century.

With all of this
to do, will you be heading to Morocco this year? If you have already visited
this country before what was your favourite thing to see and do? Let us know
