Whether you want a heart-pounding adventure, a luxurious retreat, a trip full of culture, or the most amazing shopping holiday ever, Morocco will exceed your expectations. Ancient cities, modern metropolises, gorgeous coastal resorts, and remote towns on the edge of the desert - Morocco is the exotic country on Europe's doorstep that can't wait to welcome you.

Morocco is a kingdom of wonders that has so much to offer you – four different mountain ranges march across the land, while long golden beaches line a coast that borders both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. In the south of the kingdom, you’ll find Morocco’s most famous feature – the spectacular, mesmerising, beguiling Sahara Desert. And throughout the land you’ll find lush oases, cascading rivers, and rich vineyards, it’s truly a kingdom that rewards the curious.

Morocco has plenty to see when it comes to urban adventures too – visit desert towns like Merzouga and Ouarzazate (Hollywood’s destination of choice when it comes to filming desert epics), historic Imperial Cities such as Fez and Rabat, and world famous Tangier, Casablanca and Marrakech.

Whilst travellers are voting with their feet, we’re really excited to see that the travel press continues to recognise Morocco too: Casablanca is amongst TripAdvisor’s Top 10 destinations on the rise for 2018, Essaouira is commended for the great value for money it offers in Lonely Planet’s Best In Travel 2018; and the Guardian places Fez on its hotlist for 2018.

In search of grizzlies with Canada’s bear whisperer

“Warmer winters mean we’re not losing as many grizzlies to the cold as we have before either,” says Gary. “I’m positive we’ll start seeing, even more, bears crammed into this little pocket of land soon.”
